Judder and the Jack Rabbits are a psychobilly outfit from Norwich, England, and this CDEP represents their first demo. The included “Brief History” claims that they play “Demented Are Go type psychobilly mixed with the kind of hardcore punk bands like the Nerve Agents would play.” That pretty much sums it up. Since this is a demo, it’s woefully (and perhaps understandingly) underproduced, and I think that’s where my reservations with the record arise, but not with the band. I think that this demo shows some real promise from these guys, but what I’ve got in my hands is not that compelling. It sounds like a basement recording made after three days of no sleep—a bit sloppy and lacking the production value that would accurately represent a band that gets good response from their live act.
