Biography

Caution! Wild stuff here! If you think the baritone guitar on Johnny Horton records is your limit in term of modernity, this record is not for you. But if you’re looking for a good sixties garage punk with a healthy dose of Bo Diddley and rockabilly music, don’t go any further, you found what you need! Who are The Hexxers? No less than (Rockin’) Ryan Sagat on vocals and his partner in crime the multi-talented Rip Carson (guitar, bass, drums). The opening song, Beau Dentures’s “Straight Home” with its powerfull riffs is the kind of song Wild Billy Childish could have played. “I Can Beat Your Drums” seems directly taken from a “Songs The Cramps Taught Us” compilation, imagine something reminiscent of The Sparkles. “Strangled” proves they’re not only good at playing this music, but they can write it to.Ryan’s vocal sounds like a possessed Screamin’ Lord Sutch on this one. “No One Knows…” is probably one of my best loved ones with tons of fuzz (I love fuzz). In the middle of the album, there are two more rockabilly influenced songs, then back to wildness with «Sidewinder Crawl» “I Take What I Want” is another favorite of mine, featuring label owner Mel on percussions and both Ryan and Rip on vocals. Throughout this album Ryan proves his vocal has nothing to envy of Gerry Roslie. Just imagine what they could deliver live? But, hey, wait!!! They’ve just released a live album called “Buried Alive”
