I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Cleopatra Records artist: The Hillbilly Moon Explosion - Back In Time - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Back In Time, by The Hillbilly Moon Explosion and it's a strong blend of retro, country and punk infused rock. Opening with Sometimes Late At Night, Emanuela Hutter on lead vocal and rhythm guitar leads the way in fine style. Duncan James on lead guitar drives the boat with slashing punk like lead and Dick Dale riffs, backed by Oliver Baroni on bass and Sylvain Petite on drums. Solid opener. Knocked Down has a great bass lead with Baroni on lead vocal and James again showing nods to Dale with echo and cool underplayed rockabilly lead. Petite keeps the rhythm with rim shots. Very cool. Moody, A Sudden Ring, is really nice with traces of Hope Sandoval in the vocal and the addition of tremolo guitar work, James mixing in a cool baritone guitar and Baroni adds piano to the mix. Country flavored, Always Just You, is a really nice track with simple vocal lead by Hutter's voice isolated over clean guitar, bass, and drum rhythm, complimented by James on lower octave guitar soloing. Death By My Side is a cool, hopped up, sister to one of the greatest cowboy sings, Ghost Riders. With modern vocals by Baroni and Hutter, backed by Daniel DeLeon, and cool Dale like guitar riffs by James, this is a sure fire track. Wrapping the release is Reno with it's two step rhythm and a nod to Willie and lead vocal by Hutter. This is a very enjoyable release with plenty to hear.
