Album Notes
"This is my must have CD of the month!!! Even if rockabilly's not your thing it's never too late to change, and I can't think of a better disc to pop that rockin' cherry than this! Kinda like Elvis a little on the Misfits side or the Misfits a little on the Elvis side, Rockin Ryan and the Real Goners' Cry of Midnight is one part rock and two parts billy with a whole lotta devilishness thrown in. This is the stuff life sentences are made of. These guys do rockabilly as it should be done--greasy, swingin' and macabre. Ryan's sultry vocals linger like a softer, younger Danzig full of romantic criminal intent circa Legacy of Brutality. Seedy lyrics preach of all sorts of debaucheries involving the fairer sex. Musically, Ryan and the Goners are a modern version of Carl Perkins, Ray Campi, and Johnny Cash all rolled into one. The guitar work is marvelous. Like Atlas, the legendary Rip Carson carries the weight of it all on his shoulders--uh strings. At times gangly and sleazy and at times electric and assertive, it's rare that an instrument holds as much weight as the vocals, but this is one of those rarities. Upright bass sets the mood and adds authenticity, and stripped Slim Jim-esque drums are the glue holding it all in time. This is pure and simple rockabilly. And while the younger Tiger Army and Horrorpops fans might be hungry for some distortion and theatrics, traditional kats and kittens will feel right at home. If you only get one CD this month make it this one." Patricia Valery,, May 2006

Now this one is my favorite one! The first song Cry of midnight is absolutely the best. Can't wait for the next album.

Catchy tunes
Its my first Rockin' Ryan Cd, and won't be my last. I am looking forward to hearing more of their material. These boys are pumping out some very catchy tunes. Well done.

A new aproach
This mixture of punk, rockabilly, hillbilly and horror movies, is different from any other psykobilly/zombiebilly release I know. Neither in the tradition of The Cramps or The Meteors, but somewhere in between creating some sort of third line in the genre, a style of its own. Feets deep down in the traditions of both hillbilly (Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb) and rhythm and blues(Howling Wolf, Screamin' Jay Hawkins), but mostly tilting to the hillbilly side sometimes with a touch of western swing, with a pure freshness. Yet - it is highly modern, creative and inovative, really making something new. Taking a journey through the rock and roll of Bill Haley and Jerry Lee Lewis, the garage rock of The Sonics and The Kingsmen, the chockrock of Alice Cooper, the new aproach of The Ramones, further through Stray Cats, the cowpunk bands and a lot more, but moving beyound all that and opening a window in to the future. From there a breath of fresh air reaching the present, sometimes even a storm: wild, racing, mercyless and violent. But still melodic and musically intact. And always fresh. Fresh indeed! - Blasting away, and taking you with it. Extremely catchy. In a musical field often claimed to be nostalgia and only about the past, here is an album looking forward, showing new posibilities.


one of the best cd's i've ever heard
this cd should be heard by everyone.

Ron Baker

Rockin' Ryan is GREAT!
Rockin' Ryan's cd CRY OF MIDNIGHT is one of the best rockabilly albums ever recorded! I doubt that I ever put this on the will be close to the cd player from now on. Many of the songs were written by Rip Carson--that's a good thing. Rip is a great artist in his own right. Rockin' Ryan has one incredible voice that is evident from the very first track on the cd and doesn't let up through the final track. This is music that sounds as fresh and vibrant as an Eddie Cochran record would have in 1959. Want a great rockabilly cd to play? This is it!!!


This is really good stuff


Dark and creepy cool late 50's rockers and hillbilly I like this one it's like a split personality Nick Cave Tom waits and johnny Burnette trio. Wierd Innovative.

Carina Eklund

Unique and catchy
When I heard them for the first time, played very loud, out of a '42 Buick Woody Wagon, I got hooked. You hear a lot of RnR and -billy on these classic car meets in Sweden, but this was different stuff. Not the stereotype accords and not the default "rock" in 1 outta 5 and "roll" 1 outta 10 words. Yet, very catchy, classy tunes. Rockabilly at its best, creepy and gloomy at times, but very fresh. A must have.
