Rockabilly Style - Page 11

post #151 of 160
Last post about Viva Las Vegas, i swear... One of the best bands i saw all weekend was a young band from England called The Caezars that are signed to Wild Records. I think this is what rockabilly probably felt like when you were young and reckless and saw bands like in the 50's.

For your eyes, apply a thick layer of eyeliner on your top lids, to create the "cat-eye" look. You may also wish to use some large, full false lashes.They were rebellious and sexy. They literally wore the attitude that rules are meant to be broken.

I like that Rivet Head blog but didn't realize he was in a band. I just found some more videos on YouTube. They cut loose here:

Max Decharne's book A Rocket in My Pocket is a useful account of rockabilly (Decharne was drummer for Gallon Drunk). You can also get a companion CD with some of the songs mentioned in the book. Here's something to keep my post relevant to this forum section: clothes.

the Caezars were amazing werent they?!! I was blown away, maybe one of the best rockabilly bands i've seen over 12 years of Viva, 2 years at Green Bay weekender and countless local gigs. Good point about them being what it was probably like seeing this kind of music for the first time when it all started, their energy level was off the charts

why wouldnt they? TSOL just co-headlined a huge gig with CroMags and like 20 other bands. Tiger Army are in hiatus while Nik13 works on his solo stuff (roots rockabilly/country sound) but TA played 2 shows at Halloween last year and sold out both nights at a huge venue so there is still a lot of interest.

As a rockabilly guy to the core, I can tell you that rockabilly is NOT about brands. The one exception is Levis -- black and dark blue, cuffed Levis 501s are the be-all and end-all of casual rockabilly style. Wingtips are the most standard and most versatile footwear (I happen to like Rockport on style, quality, and price), though you can't go wrong with engineering boots, creepers, or cowboy boots in the South for a little country flair. For shirts, plain white and black t shirts are standard. For button-downs, rather than blowing big bucks on designer stuff, hit up Goodwill and Salvation Army for cheap bowling shirts, Hawaiian shirts, and patterned dress shirts. Top it off with aviator or Ray-Ban shades and the non-optional pompadour, and you're ready to rock! Rockabilly style was a bottom-up, working class thing, so designer labels arre the wrong way to go. Keep it cheap, simple, and clasic. Plus, chicks dig it. Take it from me.
