Their dedication to the musical roots of Rock’N’Roll comes through in every whipsaw atomic blast. A night with The Tremors is a hell-bent chicken-run through the greatest music in American history — Rockabilly — The hybrid of Blues and Country that became Rock’N’Roll and changed the world.
Through passionate research and exploration into Rock’N’Roll history, the band has assembled the finest and most legendary songs of the 1950’s. Throw in some of their own rockin’ original material and you’ve got Rockabilly as pure, authentic, and strong as Tennessee sour mash.
Eugene Chadbourne, All Music Guide
Fans of this top-flight North Carolina band — perhaps “20 flight” would be a more appropriate term considering the rockabilly song repertoire — have been waiting patiently for a new release by the Tremors, as patiently as the somewhat dodgy chick named Jody who used to hang out in front of a bowling alley in Denver, hoping her main man, the raunchy pachuco Johnny, would come by and take her for a drive in his hot rod. These former fans are going to have to be happy with a shortie disc, six tracks and less than 14 minutes in total, just like the aforementioned lass had to sometimes settle for a fleeting glimpse of her boyfriend on nights when he was too busy racing to hang out with a dame. Tremors fans are getting the better deal, in the long and short run of it, as Johnny was a total jerk and these six tracks are pretty much uniformly excellent. On “Lovin’ on My Mind,” the rhythm section of Slim Perkins and Stretch Armstrong cooks like mad; elsewhere, the bassist pulls some terrific synchronization with the deliriously recorded vocals of guitarist Jimmy Tremor. The experience, needless to say too short, at least includes some essential stops in terms of this genre’s subject matter: sex, drive-ins, pill-popping, sex, money, sex, and Carl Perkins.
2. The Tremors are also a band from Australia who have released “Can I Get A Whiskey?” EP & full length album “Cash Up Front, No Kissing”.
