ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ghettobillies have been slowly building up what is now an international cult following for over 6 years. Inspired by such artists as Frank Zappa, the Dead Milkmen, Queen, and Jamiraquai and fired by the angst of middle America, Ghettobillies mix the old styles with the new and the muscle with the hustle. The 4 piece rock band balances power chords of thunderous proportions with delicate, sometimes falsetto vocals over a rocketing disco dance and funkified rhythm section. Originally a bluegrass trio with no percussion and singing in 3 part harmonies about such important themes as cross dressing, drug addiction, and love affairs with the handicapped, Ghettobillies have matured both lyrically and musically now as they incorporate driving funk and disco dance songs with power pop-punk hooks that leave you so happy you could pee.


Ghettobillies have released 2 EP's as well as 2 other full length albums in addition to "Still in the Pink". The second full length album, "Butterface", was released on Detroit independent Record label Planet Ant and their first full length album "Some Rezeev" was released independently in 1998. Their most recent full length album, Still in the Pink, was released in the fall of 2003 and is enjoying 5 star reviews and incredible sales!

With the precision of a surgeon, John Maloney (known as The Holy Maloney) dissects and reconstructs the break beats and concussive thuds that form the base of this rock and roll building of worship. Matt Longbons (known as Lord Bon bons & Bong) drops the complex slapping rivets of bass lines that hearken back to the days of Bootsie Collins and psychedelic patterns from the current Flea. Derek Kramer (AKA: Pope D 'licious) heralds a cornerstone in acoustic guitar innovation by squealing out 60's folk, 70's wah-wah rhythms, and 80's monsters of rock solos-all in one song. Rounding out the diversity of this 4-some is Robbie Conaway (AKA: Reverend C. Cobb) whose breakneck tongue tying lyrics, Freddy Mercury range and sticky thick guitar melodies bring the listener to their feet...and then to their knees.

unf*ckingbelievable
I cannot stress enough how much every dynamic human being should have a copy of this album. Quick fix for the depressed. Buy it. Buy it now. You won't regret it. It's truly fantastic.

Always In My Car
This CD is one of my alltime faves. I loaned my original to someone and it disappeared of course. Had to buy 2 more, these guys deserve it. "Hiding Out" is one of my daughter's favorite songs, she knows all the words. (she's seven) I've been seeing the boys since 97-98..... unbelievable.... this record (dated myself), CD is their one "MUST OWN".... I really don't wanna die in Alabama.....

Orgasmic
OH MY GOD! I went skydiving at Napoleon last year, and 'hiding out' accidently ended up on my DVD. Well I lost the DVD, but have since been searching for the song. After becoming a regular skydiver this year, I went to the show last weekend... and heard my song! I had to buy the cd, and it is soooo addicting. Every song is absolutely amazing! Just orgasmic! I love the GB's so much. I'm going out to Chicago to hear them play again this weekend! You guys ROCK!

The Ghettobillies are AWESOME!!!! Definitely bring back old memories at Rubes!
The CD came quickly and was in perfect condition. I loved working with CD Baby and I will purchase future music from them. Thanks Alot!!!

Their Best Yet
I own every one of their albums, and this is by far the best... you simply haven't LIVED until you've heard it. Their others are good too, but nothing compaired to this! Be sure to listen to the answer machine messages at the end... They're a riot!

Steven

Still in the Pink is a great albulm.
I loved this cd, Still in the Pink. I have never seen the Ghettobillies, but I can tell that they are a group that just likes to have a good time. I just wish there were more songs on the CD. Good job.

-Steven

Still in the Pink .... Barely

Liked the other CDs better ... but still good
Doesn't hold a candle to Butterface and Some Rezeev but it still has a few good songs on it. It doesn't seem to have the "umpf" of the other two and didn't stay long in the CD changer.

Stephanie

Good, great, grand
CD was great! It was a gift to my boyfriend for his birthday and he started to listen to it right away! He can't wait to get the rest of this groups CDs!

Jenny

UNBELIEVEABLE!
Holy Crap are these guys staggeringly talented. The CD never gets old and it is impossible to feel down while listening to / watching them. They make you realize what's so great about being alive! When the HELL is a major record label going to realize what their missing? These guys are a guaranteed success. Seeing them live is indescribable.
