116. Deadbolt - Tijuana Hit Squad

Imagine, if you will, a bunch of hillbillies drunk on moonshine and looking for trouble. Now imagine they have a band. With two bass players. If "Squidbillies" had a soundtrack, it would be made by this band.

It's part rockabilly, part punk, part drunken cowboys. It's the kind of music that would be playing in that Mexican vampire bar in "Dusk Before Dawn." This album is a drunk, slightly bowlegged gunslinger walking into an almost deserted town in search of long lost enemy, looking to even up an old score. But he gets distracted by the 50 cent beers in the saloon and ends up telling stories all night about murder and mayhem and prison time while his enemy slips out of town. And all those stories are told with some kick ass bass riffs.

They call themselves the Scariest Band Alive. Whatever they are, they kick my ass.

Favorite song: Conductor

I'd never heard of these guys before. That track you put up rocks.
