Artist: The Coffinshakers , The Archers
Label: Alleycat records
The Coffinshakers have been one of my favourite band ever since i first heard them in the late 90’s, their amazing mix of country and rockabilly with lyrics of vampires wich reminds alot of old horror movies have never lost it’s grip on me and i do collect everything vinyl with the band, all singles, album and every pressing and colour. Now the bands isnt that productive and have only released a couple of albums and a handfull of singles, so when they release a new single or album it’s always a special feeling to put it on the turntable.
On this split vinyl-single you find two brand new recordings by The Coffinshakers, and if you heard of the band before you know just what to expect, for you who never heard em it can best be explained like country, rockabilly with a taste for vampire lyrics, much like a Johnny Cash singing about vampires. The two new songs is a fast one a little slower one. I could’nt find any on youtube, so i posted a live video instead so you who never heard em can check em out.
On the B side you find the band The Archers, i have never heard of them before, and to be honest, it not something i feel i missed out on. Just like the Coffinshakers it’s country rock n roll but with no vocals, so it’s plain and instrumental, nothing special really even though i think the song “Moon over istanbul” have some very cool parts.
The single is limited to 750 copies and released on black vinyl only.
Side Coffinshakers: The night of the dead, Mark of the vampire
