Speedway Operator

by Speedway Operator

If you could take the Marr guitar sounds from The Smiths, the punk-pop neo-billy of the The Living End, mod sensibilities of Paul Weller, and a delicate splash of McCartney then you would have...Speedway Operator...Mod-a-billy!

Album Notes
Recorded at Earworks studios in Virginia Beach VA by the brilliant engineer Allen Law. 3 original songs by 3 songwriters and yes 3 vocalists! Thats how Speedway Operator plays. You will always find fantastic songwriting and crafting from the boys of Speedway. Blending all of their influences into one big bag of all things considered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beatle-billy? Smiths Cats? April 16, 2013

Format:MP3 MusicPerhaps describing Speedway Operator as "Morrissey meets The Living End" is too easy but the blue suede shoe fits. With heavy slapping bass and more than passing nods to punk, power pop and psychobilly, fans of either act will find something to like here. "Beatle-esque" is an overused description, but again applies here. Speedway Operator played for several years as a Morrissey/Smiths cover band but those influences are strangely less obvious here than the neo rockabilly and pop-punk alternative vibe. That two of the Atomics are members may make this less surprising.
3 songs from 3 different songwriters and singers makes this EP an interestingly varied listen, held together by the "modern rock played with rockabilly instrumentation" ethic. Well worth investigation!
