Late, Late Night FDL: Rock This Town

Brian Setzer, Marty Stuart & Ricky Skaggs – Rock This Town

Brian Setzer has a new album coming out soon…

Brian Setzer will release a new studio album, Rockabilly Riot: All Original — a straight-ahead rockabilly album from start to finish — August 12 via Surfdog Records. The album is the followup to 2011’s Setzer Goes Instru-Mental!

The album, which features Mark Winchester (bass), Kevin McKendree (piano) and Noah Levy (drums), was recorded in Nashville and produced by Peter Collins.

“They seem to know what it should sound like,” Setzer says about the crew that worked on the new album. “Peter Collins is experienced and an accomplished producer, he’s done a lot of records, but he loves rockabilly music and he knows what it should sound like.

“I think this album sounds to me a little bit like the first Stray Cats record…it’s rockabilly songs. It’s not just blues songs in the rockabilly style. People like to call it ‘neo-billy,’ I suppose, which is some invented word somebody came up with, but if that’s the word they want to use, I’d like to go with that because it sounds to me like it’s very modern and fresh-sounding rockabilly.”

What’s on your mind tonite…?
