Description

SIR BALD DIDDLEY & HIS RIPCURLS (UK) is the latest project of Sir Bald Diddley, musical allrounder, who already brought us bands like his Rockabilly-Combo ‘Hipbone Slim & The Kneetremblers’, ‘The Legs’, ‘The Beatseeking Missiles’ or ‘The Kneejerk Reactions’. With The Ripcurls his path takes him to a Fratrock-/Surf/Exotica/Teen-Sound with a rich, versatile sound which adds up to a fantastic album that won’t leave your turntables so easily! The 16 fabulous tunes are covered in some great artwork by Chris Sick. But the record doesn’t only look good, but it definitely also sounds it. ‘Bird Stomp’ almost sounds like the band’s very own take on THE TRASHMEN’s ‘Surfin’ Bird’ while ‘Macho Combo Burrito’ has a little bit of THE CHAMPS’ classic ‘Tequila’ in it. With ‘There’s a Merkin Lurkin” they deliver a very cool instrumental Tittyshaker with a dirty saxophone, exotic percussions and a surfy guitar. ‘Cut Throat’ comes along as a fantastic surfer while ‘Fly Eyes’ will blow your ears with its frantic piano and wild guitars. You’ll definitely start dancing to the fun FratRock-songs ‘Run Gorilla’ or ‘Gannet For Your Love’. ‘Flip Your Wig’ is the perfect soundtrack for a surfin’ beach party!
