A lot of it is really good, but given the choice I'd rather listen to classic 50's rockabilly. Incidentally, in a few weeks I'll be in Jackson, Tennessee, home of the rockabilly hall a fame. I've made plans to check it out. Should be a good time.

What is it exactly? I've looked it up on Wikipedia and have a vague understanding of it. Videos anybody?

Psychobilly is a fusion genre of rock music that mixes elements of punk rock, rockabilly, and other genres. It is one of several subgenres of rockabilly which also include thrashabilly, trashabilly, punkabilly, surfabilly, and gothabilly. Psychobilly is often characterized by lyrical references to science fiction, horror and exploitation films, violence, lurid sexuality, and other topics generally considered taboo, though often presented in a comedic or tongue-in-cheek fashion. It is often played with an upright double bass instead of the electric bass more common in modern rock music. click this link to psychobilly bands

This is why I'm a huge the Cramps fan but not really an earnest fan of any psychobilly bands (though I like some stuff)

"I think psychobilly has evolved into a musical style now which kind of isn't what we are... there seems to be a style of music defined by a standup bass, a very speeded up pace which we don't do. I think our songs have a more sensuous tempo. I'm not sure what exactly defines psychobilly but it seems to have taken on a life on its own. But its not quite what we do." -- Poison Ivy

"The thing that makes rockabilly unique is the sexuality of it - it's real groove. Psychobilly today doesn't really have a groove. It's as if (the bands) are tryin' to make their quota in the factory. It doesn't seem sexual to me." -- Lux

I guess that's it. I dig the slower, slinkier, sleazier sound. Alliteration unintentional but welcome.
You make me __
