Top 5 Drunkabilly Tracks of 2010

Lately I have been listening to some really good Rockabilly bands form Europe. Specifically from Britain, Germany, and Belgium. These were my top five discoveries in 2010. Not all are signed to Rockabilly Records, but can can be seen featured on their website. I would be stoked to see what other people have been listening to from across the pond, and whether or not they dig these jams!

1. The Booze Bombs - "Funnel of Love" - Highly Intoxicating!

I'm pretty sure everyone knows how much I love this band by now. You can check out the video here.

2. Nigel Lewis & The Zorchmen - "I Wanna Be Someone" - Ladies and Gentlemen Attention Please..

Awesome fucking song, reminds me of old school Iggy Pop. You can sample it here.

3. The Hellsonics - "Adrenaline" - Demon Queen

This band is pretty epic, and the album is very good with Adrenaline as the stand out track. Couldn't find a sample of this song available, so you can check out "Demon Queen" here, which is also good, just to get a taste of their sound which is more metal/punk.

4. Nitro 17 - "Soft Like Velvet" - On To The Other Side

This band rips and is more on the punkish side. I had a tough time choosing between "Soft Like Velvet" and "Better Times".

5. The Delmonas - "I Feel Like Giving In" - Archive from 1959 The Billy Childish Story

This song is awesome! It is in French although I think the band is British, go figure. It makes me want to smoke a cigarette, and start holding it in a very lame way. Also, if you find yourself fortunate enough to have this song playing when you get out of the shower, congrats. Naked towel dancing is the best way to start your day, fuck breakfast.

Sorry no sample website off hand. You will have to listen to it on iTunes.

Wow. Aside from the Booze Bombs, I've never heard of any of these bands. I can't wait to check them out.
