Opening with the foot-tappin, distinctive baritone voice of Jyrki 69 on 'She’s Hot' and the lighter fare of their cover of Post Malone’s 'Hollywood’s Bleeding' (which was released in October of last year to rave reviews), we next get the rhythmic '(You’re) The Kind Of Girl I Need,' the blues rock of 'Good Time To Die,' the guitar pop hop of 'Graveyard Blues,' and then the all-out rocker 'Hey World' (featuring the late Sky Saxon on vocals).
The pure rockabilly-imbued '(Let’s Go) Psycho' (which is actually a song written with Australian Psychobilly / Rockabilly artist Brigitte Handley back in 2000, and still features her on background vocals) is one of my own stand out cuts here and is backed by some old school rock 'n' roll vibes within both 'Vampire Shuffle' and 'Teddy Boy Boogie,' and then we get the surf rock appeal of 'The Hell Of The Mountain King,' with this vibrantly delicious album rounding out on the mid-tempo shuffle of 'I’m Evil,' closing on the gently frenetic 'It Ain’t Enough' (featuring Larry Wallis from the Pink Fairies, and an early member of Motörhead).
Seven Year Itch is available on digipak CD as well as a deluxe gatefold jacket housing PINK vinyl!
