The Peacocks - Touch And Go
When reading the bio for The Peacocks it already becomes very obvious what these guys are all about; fun! This Swiss threesome has been around for over fifteen years or so, and now, after many albums, splits, EPs and 7 inches, they bring us their new album Touch And Go, through the infamous People Like You Records.
 
I for one have not been confronted with The Peacocks in all those years I have to say. What these guys make is a bit of a rockabilly/psychobilly/punkrock hybrid, with of course that trademark upright bass slapping and those all too common rock ‘n’ roll riffs. Add lyrics about sex, drugs, rock ‘n’roll and basically just partying hard, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a party band.
 
This is of course the way the band came into existence, playing at birthday parties. In the meantime they have played on several continents, and still play about a hundred shows each year. So it shouldn’t be too hard catching one of their shows any time soon. I must say that their album makes a pretty professional impression, with a good production and some good catchy songs. I’ll bet it takes the average person about three spins on this one to memorize at least half of all choruses on Touch And Go.
 
Well fans of the band know what to expect, and any lover of rockabilly can safely pick this one up.  Nothing new, just a barrel of fun for rockabillies, punks and psychos.
