Stray Cats: Rock This Town - Live New York '88 (CD)

(Air Cuts) 11 tracks (48:00) jewelcase.
& ,
With hits like "Rock This Town," "Stray Cat Strut," "Runaway Boys," and "(She's) Sexy + 17," the Stray Cats brought rockabilly back to the top of the charts in the 1980s. This WNEW-FM broadcast of a show at New York's Ritz on October 18, 1988 features live performances of all of these songs, including an eight-minute version of "Rock This Town:' They also charged through other highlights of their early albums, as well as unveiling newer material from their late-`80s album Blast Off!& ,
& ,
"Rockabilly Rules" is not just the title of one of the songs the Stray Cats sing on this CD, it might as well serve as the motto for their . music, if not their life. In the 1980s, no act did more to revive rockabilly music, a style very much associated with rock'n'roll's birth in the mid-1950s, but one that hadn't sold many records for decades. The Stray Cats brought the music back with a vengeance, first in England, where they'd moved from Long Island, and then in their native US, where their 1982 album hit #2 in the national charts. The Stray Cats might not have been scoring such high chart hits by the time they played New York's Ritz on October 18, 1988, but they still knew how to rouse an audience. That's clear from the performance on this CD, taken from an FM broadcast for the King Biscuit Flower hour radio program.& ,

Guitarist Brian Setzer, bassist Slim Jim Phantom, and drummer Lee Rocker blast through nearly a dozen rockabilly numbers on these selections, including their Top Ten hits "Rock This Town" (in an eight-minute version), "Stray Cat Strut," and "(She's) Sexy + 17," as well as other highlights from their 1980s albums. Although rock history is dotted with American artists that only made it big after moving to the UK (Jimi Hendrix being the biggest), the Stray Cats' path to stardom was not just unusual, but downright unique for the early 1980s. After forming in 1979 in Massapequa, New York, success seemed like a long shot considering rockabilly music had been out of fashion since the 1950s.& ,

Rockabilly fashion wasn't even in fashion. "We were the only band in Long Island who were doing anything like this," Brian Setzer told Record Mirror's Mark Cooper in 1980. "The rest of the bands either had long hair and were covering Led Zeppelin or they were covering the Grateful Dead. We were getting the kids down there with their girls and sure, they wouldn't dress, but they'd dance and they'd really dig it and nobody dances to rock in the States anymore." To break out of Long Island, the Stray Cats had to move across the ocean. "We'd heard about the rockabilly scene and we were bored—we weren't going anywhere," explained Setzer in Record Mirror. "Sure we had a big crowd and we'd been playing for about a year but we were standing still. And the record companies there, they don't wanna hear about anything...So we just headed off."& ,

About half of the songs on this CD date from the Stray Cats' meteoric rise to stardom in the UK, replicated shortly afterward in the US. "Runaway Boys," a British Top Ten hit when it was released as their debut UK single in late 1980, wasn't issued in the US at the time, but helped build their Stateside following when it got airplay on commercial FM stations as an import. It, "Rock This Town," "Stray Cat Strut," and "Rumble in Brighton" all appeared on 1981 debut LP Stray Cats, demonstrating their ability to write rockabilly-based material with a modern bent. "Double Talkin' Baby," which also appeared on that album, was not a band original, but a cover of a mid-`50s song by rockabilly star Gene Vincent, one of their biggest influences.& ,

All of these songs also appeared on their official US debut album, 1982's Built For Speed, which in fact drew from both Stray Cats and the UK follow-up LP, Gonna Ball. The Top Five hit "(She's Sex) + 17" comes from their 1983 album Rant 'N Rave with the Stray Cats, which despite the single failed to hit the Top Ten. In late 1984 the group broke up...but not for long. By the time they played the Ritz in late 1988, in fact, the Stray Cats had been back together for a couple years. Their 1986 album Rock Therapy hadn't hit the Top 100, and was, to the disappointment of some fans, half-comprised of non-original material.& ,

Perhaps eager to show they weren't a spent force, the Ritz show included four songs from their next album, Blast Off!, which would bear a 1989 release date. Besides the title track, these included "Gina" (introduced from the stage as having "a Buddy Holly beat to it"), "Nine Lives," and "Rockabilly Rules." Blast Off! also missed the Top 100, but at least it made the charts, a feat none of their four subsequent albums managed. Not that chart success seemed like the most important thing on Setzer's mind when he looked back on the band's legacy the first time they broke up. "Musically, we were a good group and we had some classic cuts," he told Jeff Tamarkin in Creem in 1986. "Maybe we became pigeonholed by some people because we had eccentric haircuts and clothes, but I think the music will hold up.& ,

Twenty years from now, oldies stations will be playing 'Rock This Town.' I'm glad the Cats made it on our own terms. I didn't compromise anything. And it certainly was fun to have rockabilly hits on the charts alongside Foreigner."& ,

"Stray Cats"

Stray Cats

chats errants Neo Rockabilly est une invention britannique, mais le groupe le plus populaire du genre vient d'Amérique : Stray Cats ! Issus du rockabilly traditionnel, avec de grandes influences des héros des années 1950 Gene Vincent et Eddie Cochran, les Stray Cats ont mélangé leur son avec New Wave et même des éléments punk rock. Les Stray Cats ont été fondés à l'été 1979 par Brian Setzer (chant, guitare - maintenant chef de l'Orchestre Brian Setzer), Slim Jim Phantom (batterie - vrai nom James McDonell) et Lee Rocker (contrebasse - vrai nom Leon Drucker) sous le nom'Brian Setzer & The Tomcats'.

Le groupe a rapidement changé de nom pour'Stray Cats' et s'est égaré en Grande-Bretagne en juin 1980 alors qu'ils voyaient de plus grandes opportunités à travers le grand Rockabilly Revival européen, avec le noyau de l'Angleterre et des groupes comme Matchbox, Polecats, Shakin' Stevens, Restless et bien d'autres encore. Il n'a pas fallu beaucoup de temps pour sortir un premier single et le légendaire premier album, produit par le grand Dave Edmunds, a atterri sur les étagères à la fin de 1980 au début de 1981.

Les Stray Cats ont définitivement créé un nouveau son propre au sein du mouvement Rockabilly ! C'est arrivé au printemps 1981, quand je suis allé dans un magasin branché qui vendait des vêtements et des disques. Je voulais une paire de jeans et j'étais dans le sous-sol de la boutique quand un son sans précédent est arrivé à mes oreilles. Il venait du sous-sol du magasin où les disques ont été vendus. J'ai couru et j'ai demandé le groupe. C'était les Stray Cats et leur classique'Runaway Boys'. J'étais électrifié ! Bien sûr, j'ai marché fièrement à la maison avec l'assiette et le jean était de l'histoire.... Je n'avais jamais été littéralement capturé par un son comme ça (sauf pour Elvis Presley - mais c'est une autre histoire) !

En 1982, les Stray Cats étaient en tournée aux États-Unis en tant que groupe de soutien pour les Rolling Stones. 1983 est devenue l'année de tournée par excellence, également pour promouvoir le nouvel album'Rant'n'Rave With The Stray Cats'. 1984 est la première dissolution de la bande. Setzer a continué en solo et les deux autres chats ont fondé'Phantom, Rocker & Slick'. Mais déjà en 1986, Stray Cats s'est de nouveau réuni et a sorti l'album'Rock Therapy'. Les années suivantes, jusqu'en 1992, nous ont apporté une certaine continuité du groupe, d'autres albums sont sortis et ils sont partis en tournée régulièrement. En 1992, le groupe suivant a été dissous et Brian Setzer a commencé son projet très réussi'The Brian Setzer Orchestra'.

La prochaine réunion des Stray Cats a eu lieu en 2003-2004 et le CD/DVD live'Rumble In Brixton' a été produit. Une dernière réunion du groupe a eu lieu en 2008, lorsqu'ils sont repartis en tournée mondiale. Les chats errants sont de véritables légendes dans le vaste monde du rock'n'roll rockabilly !
