Rodeo Carburettor Review
When I first saw the description of this album, I just knew I had to check it out. How could a Japanese band drawing such influences as the great Revered Horton Heat not be good? The answer: its as bloody f**king awesome as one would imagine it would be. Over the years here at the green lair I've developed a test for psycho/punkabilly records. Its a simple test that consists of taking a spin in the old Impala with the given release on near ear splitting volume, the mark of quality is determined by how much the speed limit is exceeded. The Rodeo Carbs garnered a respectable 30 mph over with a grand total of 95 miles per hour.
Now one thing that might turn people off to these guys is that they sing mainly in Japanese with some occasional English thrown in. but like Rammstein, good music is good music whether or not you understand what is being said or not. The inflection in the singer's voice is more than enough to draw you in.
The Rodeo Carbs are raw and untamed (personally I find it a little reminiscent of Iggy and the Stooges) and damn I hope they stay that way.
