Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-11-23
Rockabilly with an edge. At times this seems to smack of the Clash. Okay, the Clash meets High Noon. Good stuff, doing right a genre that sure got burned out in the last decade. Served as Exene’s Original Sinners last fall, these guys wished they were born with make-up and spray-painted platform shoes but instead play rockabilly while dreaming of Slade dressed like a Sandanista! Very L.A.

1) FCC (bullshit) toward end, nice samples in intro, launches into straight up rockabilly, samples reappear keeping it interesting
2) very retro surf-a-billy feel
3) straight up swing
4) minor toned dark surf
5) upbeat standard rockabilly, with elvis echo
6) FCC
7) full on 60’s melancholy pop feel but amped up, Clash feel comes through
8) very London Calling Clash in beginning, turns upbeat cowpunk wester rockabilly
9) tom tom heavy rockin
10) a pleasant, if not the millionth, cover of Johnny Thunders’ “born to lose”
11) minor toned, upbeat reflective song, nice
12) swingy rockabilly, funny lyrics
13) waltzy with Clash beats, lower fi and good, ends after 3 min the… obligatory hidden track appears with 4:07 remaining: pretty and mellower rockabilly, upbeat
