ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music of Vegas 66 stirs images of a decades-old, debauchery-laden night on the Strip.

Likewise, the latest album by the Columbus trio -- Wild Ride to Hell -- doesn't concern everyday niceties.

Steady beats, screaming horns, jangling guitars and a sinful sense of fun permeate the devilish retro-rock sound, which a MySpace page describes as "psychobilly."

Bass player Jeremy Vegas expanded on the Vegas 66 stylings:

Q For the uninitiated, could you define psychobilly?

A It's a mix of punk rock and rockabilly. We seem to get called that a lot, but we don't feel that we really fit in that genre. It's all rock 'n' roll to us!

Q What made you pursue rockabilly?

A The raw energy is the most appealing part of rockabilly music. We don't feel that we are exactly a rockabilly band, but I guess everything has to be called something. We aren't trying to re-create music of the '50s and '60s, but that sound is a major influence on how we sound.

We have a lot of influences, from Sam Butera to the Sex Pistols. It's just the music that we've always enjoyed, and we want everyone else to enjoy it, too.

Q What is your favorite quote about the band?

A We were recently called "clunkabilly." This person meant it as a negative because he didn't feel that we were re-creating rockabilly exactly as he felt it should be played.

That is fine with us, since we aren't trying to perform a historical re-enactment.

Q Why should someone see you in concert?

A Because we are there to entertain. Some nights, we're playing all night -- until they shut the sound off. Other nights, we will have the big-show horns and go-go dancers.

Either way, it's a great time because we are up there having fun and it just seems to pass on to everyone in the room.
