Known for its "revved-up rockabilly" tunes, the Chop Tops are pleased to announce the revision of its album, "Evil Six," featuring re-recording thumping bass, vocals, guitars and drums for incredible sound.
One of Santa Cruz's most venerable live acts, the Chop Tops are both rip-roaringly contemporary and thoroughly traditional. The band's high-octane rockabilly eschews the punk-infused approach so popular today in favor of an energetic and het-up take on that most identifiably American of forms. Drumming frontman Sinner is a beast onstage, commanding the crowd with such assurance that he completely dispels any memories of Phil Collins anemically fronting Genesis from behind a laughably grandiose drum kit. The band's latest, Deadly Love, is the Chop Tops' most realized album to date, with ace production from Kim Nekroman and a healthy serving of hard-living, bad-loving rockabilly.
