When people refer to rock'n'roll as "devil's music" they probably have The Dragtones' tunes in mind. This quintette is a mash up of boys from other, much more recognizable bands (ie The Hives, The Hi Winders, etc) that have come together to create throwback rockabilly music with a punk edge or as the band puts it "nuclear powered musical molotov cocktail" (same thing). When I first laid my ears on their music I had visions of Johnny Depp in the classic film "Cry Baby" wooing sweet little Allison into joining him and the "drapes" down a dangerous path where people bathe in their front yards and wear cone bras like they're going out of style (if you have no idea what I am talking about, just watch the film and thank me later). It was with that imagery in mind that I let Luis Arriaga's classical vocals direct my hips into a full blown shimmy while jamming out to their work. Take a listen for yourself, but beware the music may cause dirty dancing, hot pants wearing, and pretend ciragrette smoking. You've been warned.
