Each Tuesday or every other Tuesday I will make a little post on how you can incorporate rockabilly items into your everyday you and maybe one day you'll be a total rockabilly chick! I'm gonna tip about everything from make up to jewellery, from music to model, this to that etc. Hopefully it'll be a success, I don't know, but you never know before you try right?
Today's topic is;
I know there's plenty of rockabilly artists out there, but these are my favorites! Some of them might not be considered as "rockabilly", and some are old, others fairly new. I still like them!
I'm just gonna put in loads of YouTube clips here today, and you can listen to them. Maybe you'll find something new?
#1 Mystery Gang - Gang up! (Love this song, and the video!!)
#2 Reverend Horton Heat - Wiggle Stick. More psychobilly than rockabilly perhaps, but still, they're brilliant.
#3 Brian Setzer - Americano. Probably the first rockabilly band I discovered, and that thanks to my brother!
#4 The Sabrejets - Wild for kicks. Discovered these fellas in Belfast. They're from there, and I quite like them. The vocalist is totally cool by the way.
#5 Imelda May - Big bad handsome man. Newer to the rockabilly scene, but I love her!
#6 The Polecats - Make a circuit with me. Not sure why I like these.. I just do!
#7 Kitty, Daisy and Lewis - Going up the country. Love their version of this song, also love the fact that they're siblings and rocking the rockabilly style together!
#8 Stray Cats - Rockabilly rules. Mr Setzer's band, great song.
#9 Robert Gordon - Rockabilly Boogie. Oldie, but goldie!
#10 The Lucky Bullets - Saturday night. Norwegian rockabilly band, tried out for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011, unfortunately the Norwegians didn't appreciate them enough to let them represent us in the great finale! (boo)
#11 Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly - Let's have a party. Couldn't really make this blog post without including her, could I?
These are just some of my favorite rockabilly bands/artists. There's way more to pick from, but I decided to pick out the ultimate favorites for this post. What I want YOU to do, is to leave me a comment below telling me about your favorite rockabilly band! I'm always on the hunt for new bands/artists, so please share! :)
