Limited to 300 copies each Bop & Destroy Records – BOP001
MENTAL SHAKEDOW – Bop & Destroy – LP & CD
Coming in a one-of-a-kind sleeve designed by the ‘King of Weird’ Darren Merinuk – a giant Teddyboy is
about to crush planet earth with his brothel creeper – the album includes 12 songs recorded in Finland and Berlin. Played with either bass-guitar or Slap-Bass the 12 songs demonstrate perfectly the mix of styles and sounds the band is trying to create and despite the differences it all sounds organic. Besides their own material 3 cover-songs were recorded. Looking at this selection – the Seeds ‘Can’t Seem To Make You Mine’, Iggy and the Stooges ‘Search and Destroy’, the Dead Boys ‘Caught With The Meat’ – it becomes obvious that Mental Shakedown is not another run-of-the mill Rockabilly band, but a band that is different, with unique style and distinctive sound.
