VARIOUS ARTISTS: The Sick Ones Vol 1: Psychobilly Compilation: CD

Aside from my laissez-faire attitude about the proliferation of brain-eating, nightmare-monster zombie songs with a fastidiously played bass and sneering vocalists, bands like the ones featured on this CD continue to raise the bar in the flooded, easily repetitive, and increasingly disappointing psychobilly genre. Features many tight, cleanly produced, stand-out tracks with both broad and specific appeal like those by The Brains, The Creepshow, Monster Klub, Dicemen, Matadors, Tombstones, and Stockmen. Flying Saucer consistently snatches up the finer examples of what good is left in the genre and this compilation is no exception.
