Hillbilly Rawhide - Ramblin' Primitive Outlaws (CD, New)
Hillbilly Rawhide, from Curitiba-PR / Brasil, was born in February of 2002, with the proposal to play a style made for a few in Brazil, mixing the roots of Country, Hillbilly, Western, Bluegrass, Boogie Woogie, Trucker' s Music, a lot of primitive Rock' n' Roll, and references of Psychobilly, what generated their own sound.
Using rustic instruments like Banjo, Fiddle, Acoustic Guitar and Bass, Steel Guitar, and even a Cajón, the band started playing their own songs mixed with some versions of its bigger influences, such as Hank Williams (Sr., Jr. & III), Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, David Allan Coe, Johnny Paycheck, Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard, Wayne Hancock, The Meteors, Frantic Flintstones, AC/DC, Motörhead, among others? The objective of the group is to make a revival of this style, not so known in Brazil, but of basic importance in the history of world-wide music.
A fantastic band with Cox (ex-Os Catalepticos on vocals and guitar) with some fine cover versions (listen to the Tall Boys' RIDE THIS TORPEDO!!) and excellent own material!!
