Description

Not every punkabilly band sounds like those gender-bending lunatics, The Cramps. Santa Cruz's Ghost Town Hangmen for instance, may be scoring opening spots for the wild and raunchy Reverend Horton Heat and The Chop Tops, but their influences range a bit wider. Clearly they've been listening to the Beatles. Plus their swinging rockabilly beats pay more obvious homage to the classic '50s era grooves. Even when the heavy distortion kicks in, the energy is much mellower than, say, Mojo Nixon. - Aaron Carnes sanjose.com
