The Ragtones: Poundin' My Head (7inch, EP, 45rpm, PS)
(Sleazy Records) 4-Track EP - 45rpm, picture sleeve, wide center hole -
Here you get a brand new release of this four piece rockabilly combo from south of Spain and the Canary Islands with 4 self penned boppin' blues-belter, fresh as an icy orange juice in the Andalusian sun and hotter than Tia Juana's pepper pot! Side A starts off with 'I Suppose', a 1:50 minute piece of 50's punk, followed by the blues jumper 'Poundin' My Head' with Francis Beard making his guitar wail and Hector Quintero strummin' and hollering along.
The Flipside of this slice of wax is coming on like thunder and lightning. 'She Got The Rhythm', the first song on the B-side, is a rough straight-in-your- face blues bopper with Jarke Creyente on upright bass and the always tight Jesus Lopez on drums providing a steady beat. Last number on the EP is the up-tempo rock'n'roll jiver 'She Makes A Grown Man Cry' - a tune where The Ragtones can showcase their diversity in styles and their brilliant musicianship. Stop wasting your time - grab this wax and start DANCING like a chimpanzee!
