Ok, let’s call it as it is. You’re not here because of the psychobilly. What’s the last time you ever listened to a psyko record from start to finish? – That’s what I thought. It’s also been ages since we’ve featured psychobilly music in here (sori).
You’re here because of this band’s cool name. You’re right. It is the coolest. B.o.n.e. machine. A weird machine made of bones and contraptions and levers and whatnot. It is great. But i want to know what the music sounds like, one may wonder. Well, this is one of the relatively newer bands-not from the 80s or some shit, from italy that really brings home the hope. Their lyrics are all in italian. And why shouldn’t they be? They don’t try to mimic any of the “made” bands, nor DAG, nor meteors, nor krewmen, batmobile, you name it, they don’t sound like it. They got their own “biker” sound, heavy and polyphonic that is very solid throughout the record. It’s a bit like post-cabaret, deeply rooted in blues, as if the legendary shack shakers had a punk for a frontsman and a twist for the macabre. They sound like the band from “Dusk Till Dawn” should have sounded. Heck- the instrumental track “vendetta” could’ve made it to the ost of that movie. I also picked out “Jimmy Scavafosse”, the s/t and “sono pazzo” makes a great tribute to hasil adkins and the stardust cowboy for a closing track. They feature great aesthetics in the album covers, they perform masked, they’re everything they could be. I understand they got a newer record out, but i preferred to review this one.
