ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Part twang, part swing, and all rock'n'roll... Nicky Kay and his FABULOUS Kay-Tones unleash their full-length debut Go CRAZY Pop! on ATOM Records!

For the discriminating fan of rockabilly, honky-tonk country, hillbilly swing, catchy melodies, and hot pickin', Go CRAZY Pop! is a made-to-order slice of American roots-rock heaven. Rockin', rumbling, hiccupin', echoin' vocals? Check! Gut-pounding doghouse bass? Check! Killer twin guitars and whiny steel? Check it out, Pop!

As for those that may be wary of the latest craze of retro-flash with little substance, listen up: every note on this album was recorded with REAL hot players in a REAL cool studio with the bright idea that they should get it right on the tape, not fix it in the mix. Vintage microphones? Of course! Fancy software to put a digital gloss on Nicky Kay's vocals? No way, Pop!

Nicky Kay and his FABULOUS Kay-Tones care about two things - continuing the fine tradition of American rock'n'roll, and honoring the fans who just want to get loose and have a real good time.

Go CRAZY Pop is an unrefined collection of fired-up old school rockabilly and honky tonk country that pays its respects to Hank, Gene and Merle while not trying to blandly imitate them. Behind Nicky Kay's explosive vocals, the FABULOUS Kay-Tones - "Crazy" Joe "Bacon & Eggs" Tritschler on takeoff guitar, Josh "Meat Fingers" Hoag on the upright bass, and "The Good Guy" Brian Hoeflich on the uptight drums - tear it up as if they were channeling the Blue Caps to rock some forgotten honky tonk deep in the heart of an almost forgotten America. And let's not forget the "Fabulous" Maery Lanahan who provides acoustic guitar and harmonies. After just one spin of her song "Dance Dance Dance" you'd swear the Kay-Tones called up the spirits of Patsy and Elvis to chime in.

Go CRAZY Pop! is all in fun. From the opening blast of "Tear My World Apart" to the pop finale "Baby I Get Sad and Lonely Too", Nicky Kay and his FABULOUS Kay-Tones want nothing but the best for the listener and the tradition that gave us some of the finest music ever made.

Music that makes you happy
Music that revives the old times and is authentic at the same time. It just reminds me of the music of my parents who were raising me in the rock'n'roll era. As a baby I slept near the radio that provided my brain with rock information. Yes, this is rock, a bit of blues, a hint of country or should I say bluegrass and a whole lot of fun. Anyway these are the ingredients that make music fun in my opinion, although some lyrics are rather sad Nicky Kay and his companions always see the light ahead. Very uplifting and it is almost if you can taste the joy the artists must have had when recording the tracks. Great CD, when can I buy the next one?

Andrew Henrikson

Awesome!
This is a great CD - especially if you like some "swing" in your rockabilly! Would love to see a second effort from Nicky Kay!

Top Swingin' Rockabilly !
Great traditional swing rockabilly, all the way. Kept me boppin' away. Good CD to have in the car while cruisin' down the road.
