The Amazing Royal Crowns
The Amazing Royal Crowns (Velvel/Monolyth Record Group)

By: Alex Steininger

To describe the Amazing Royal Crowns is difficult. They're fierce, swinging sound would best be described as a rockbilly band with punk rock heritage in all the members. Re-releasing their fourteen track gem on a label backed with major label distribution, they're bringing you their self-titled debut once again...for all those that missed it the first time!

Start your day right with "Shiverin In the Corner." The pace and energy is tremendous. The vocals are strong and very apparent. From screams to down right singing they can handle any duty pushed upon them. The guitar, bass, and drums are as tight as can be as they pull everything together eloquently. "Minute With The Maker" is another song that is nothing short of a great time. The vocals are ripe and ready to sing into your ear, while the guitar is soft and keeps the pace steadily. The drums prance in the background, keeping time nicely. The bass is the glue here, and sticks everything together, forming a nicely composed number that will get you swinging. Everything fits nicely into its place, and nothing is done without having a purpose. "Gretschy" is another bouncy rockabilly tune that also combines some swing into the mix. The guitar is hot like fire, and will make you dance! Matter of fact, every track on this CD is bouncy and creates the perfect scenario for a great time and a hot dance floor. "Fireball Stomp," "King of the Joint," "Wreckin Machine," and "Swimming In Drinks" are all hot tracks that will burn holes in your shoes while your dancing. Fourteen magical tracks, and you'll enjoy everyone of them.

This four piece from Rhode Island takes Rockabilly and updates it for the 90's, and then gives it a good kick in the ass with some punk rock mayhem. Whether you want to drink a few while listening to some good music, or want to create the perfect mood for a romantic night with the loved one, full of dancing and fun, this is the disc for you. And if that wasn't enough, these guys recorded this whole album in only two days, using no overdubs or anything. Now we know why this disc is crawling with energy. It deserves an A-.
