“‘Devil That You Don’t Know’ exists because I read a bio about The Cramps,” frontman Nick 13 said of the song’s inspiration. “Lux & Ivy lived in Ohio after abruptly leaving CA under the shadow of legal trouble, prior to starting the band in NYC. While in Ohio, Ivy bought an old fuzz pedal in a pawn shop. I did some research, figured out what it would’ve been and tracked one down. When I plugged it into an early-‘60s Fender Amp with the tremolo way up, this song poured out.”

Boston rockabilly outfit Diablogato just signed with State Line Records to release their sophomore album, Old Scratch, which is due out on August 23 on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. They’ve joined with us at Dying Scene, today, to give all you lovely readers a quick sneak peak at the wholesome goodness that awaits with an Old Scratch order – details on that, they promise will be available soon. Until then we’ll just have to satiate our palates with the brand new song, “Boston Blood, Memphis Heart”, streaming exclusively below.
Here’s a great tune that’s just as much country and americana as rockabilly punk. It pulls at the heartstrings of those storied roads crisscrossing America with vibrant harp and big bodied tremelo, canonical click clacking of the upright bass in tangent with the euphonious howls of a grizzled punk rock lifer into a 50’s-style Unidyne microphone pressing the urgent necessity, “Johnny don’t you worry, Johnny don’t you fret. The road’s been paved with… hard work, blood and sweat. When I look into the future the darkness settles in, in a fight that lasts forever and a war that noone wins. So, get on up. Get on up. If you fall down, boy, you gotta’ get back up!”
“Boston Blood, Memphis Heart” is a warm-bodied singalong that goes well with train hoppin’, slinking around the bayou, or cruising off in you shiny white-walled rat rod for fans of Social Distortion, Kings of Nuthin‘ and The Living End. It was recorded at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, MA, and produced and engineered by Benny Grotto along with the rest of the album.
Old Scratch consists of seven hits including two covers in which Diablogato gets to show off their Boston heritage, and I think I’ll just leave the reader guessing on those two for awhile. Be sure and add this band to your radar as they are sure to play a show near you in the near future. Devil Cat’s on the prowl. Yikes!

Raygun Cowboys‘ singer Jōn Christopherson has released an amazingly stunning video of himself playing The Misfits classic “Skulls”. Played in what appears to be the comfort of a log cabin in the Alberta wilderness, Jōn uses his one-of-a-kind voice to transform the classic into a wonderful sounding maple-coated ode to The Misfits.

Canadian psychobilly three-piece Gutter Demons have released a new video for their song “Ghostrider”. The song comes off the band’s latest release No God, No Ghost, No Saints. The video is a mixture of the fellas playing their brand of psycho-punk, all the while it seems there is a spaghetti Western playing in the background. Made hazy by the Virtual Boy camera filter, the song is clear as a bell however and as always encapsulates the wonderfully full sound of the Canadian psychobilly scene.
Check out the new video below as well as a full list of tour dates.
The latest release for Gutter Demons, as mentioned above was No God, No Ghost, No Saints, which was released back in November of last year. If you’re a fan of Raygun Cowboys you will fully enjoy the sounds of Gutter Demons.
