My current favorite rockabilly musician is Lance Lipinsky, a great pianist and singer (and guitarist) who plays and sings with incredible ease, charisma, and humor. He's a phenomenal performer.

We saw Lance Lipinsky performing as Jerry Lee Lewis earlier this month in the musical "Million Dollar Quartet" in Chicago, where he has played the role for 5 1/2 years with his final performance in just a few days. I'm glad we saw him while we could!

His own band is called "Lance Lipinsky and the Lovers," with which he plays oldies and his own songs.

Lance Lipinsky - Live in Canada
Here he is playing mostly Jerry Lee Lewis songs in a great performance. He looks like he really loves what he does and his enthusiasm is contagious!



Lance's website offers a thorough and fascinating biography with darling footage from his childhood musical endeavors: lovers

While growing up, Lance didn't know about the rockabilly subculture that has been alive and well, apparently, all these years since the 1950s and '60s, so once he discovered it, he must have been elated to have found his musical home.

Quoting from his bio: "What made this new discovery of the Rockabilly sub culture even more exciting was that the community was made up of predominantly younger people. This wasn't the same audience of old timers in a smokey casino that Lance was use to. This was a real, critical music scene full of younger people, an almost secret society of new fans of an art form thought to be extinct."

Here are some more good quotes from the bio:
In absence of a smilie whose jaw drops to the floor and breaks into a million pieces, let me just say DA-YUM!!!!!

That Lance is incredible! How old is he?! Yeah Jerry Lee's music is what got me into rockabilly in the first place... It just makes me want to squeeze into a pair of lime green cigarette pants with matching patent pumps and pretend Im a virgin

Oh and regarding the Scandinavian rockabilly... Apparently it's pretty popular over there; if you listen to their pronunciation of /o/ in words like "love" and "everlovin," you'll notice they drag it out into more of an /ah/ or even short /a/ sound, totally giving away the accent... It's subtle but distinct.

Yes, Lance Lipinsky is great, isn't he? I checked his bio and he is 28 now.

I'm especially impressed that Lance and his guitarist Wyatt Maxwell are ...

..."in the process of building their own analog studio to finish recording the rest of the [The Lover's debut] album. This studio will have no computers, no overdubs in the recording, just played live in the moment as it was in the 50's."(from lovers)

I look forward to hearing their album when it's done.

I'm now envisioning these pants, which are pretty cool:

I just listened again to the Junkyard Dog song by the Go Getters and had a really hard time hearing the accent. If I hadn't known better, I would have assumed the singer was from the United States! They did a good job of fooling me.

Love this psychobilly number by the Delta Bombers: "The Wolf"




Also, I'm getting into JD McPherson's music, has a lot of soul to it, and what a powerful voice:




And another good one by the Go-Getters, goin' out to all you aforementioned sexually-repressed vintage teenagers out there...

Hillbilly Moon Explosion is a Swiss Rockabilly band. I love the pleasantly contrasting vocals in this lovely duet.

Wanda Jackson, Brenda Lee, and Conway Twitty are my big three in Rockabilly right now.

Brenda Lee's version of What'd I Say (originally Ray Charles) is very quickly becoming one of my favorite songs of all time. It's absolute fire, Brenda's energy on it is smokin', the production is mondo heavy, whoever is on the kit is a ****ing animal, and I've read multiple times online that Jimmy Page is the session guitarist for this track, and it feels true to my ears, especially towards the end. If it is true it only makes it even more magical knowing where this kind of energy would take him only a few years later.

No Cramps in this thread?



Or is this only for Rockabilly and not Psychobilly
