THE JOURNEY ON THE LOST HIGHWAY
During the summer of 2007 we started work on what is considered to be our best album, “Wild ‘n’ Pretty”. We returned to our old stomping ground of “Western Star Records” with El Capitano, Alan Wilson at the helm. Released in May 2008 and with half of the tracks our own, it is by far the one of the best mixes of vintage and modern rockabilly. The songs are varied and there are some killer tracks, check out “Bluer Than Blue”, “I Want My Baby Now”, “Folsom Prison Bop”, “What I Did Wrong”, “You Gimme Lovin”, “The House Of The Rising Sun” and of course the title track. Its sound will appeal to people on the rockin’ scene and also to the more adventurous in the mainstream, looking for something wilder than the flat sounds of chart muzak.
This year we’re getting more National and International exposure than at any other time in our career. We’re getting excellent reviews for “Wild ‘n’ Pretty” in magazines on the scene and put that together with the press coverage we’re getting from around the globe and the ball is starting to roll. Top that off with massive plays on national and internet radio you’ve got the spark to start the flame.
On the rockin’ scene there are hundreds of top class bands completely unheard by the mainstream, playing the music and living Rock ‘n’ Roll now… today. Some of them are better musicians than us but what separates us from the rest, is simply …a passion, a spine tingling sensation that we create when we play, we know it and the audience know it. We play as if, this is our last gig, it’s not flat out and 180 mph, there is light and shade in the songs and the gigs. The music we play, sure, it’s based on 50’s songs and values but it’s played right now.
It’s basic, raw, not layered and looped, in other words, it lights a fire under you and blasts you into orbit. If you want music to chill to, don’t listen to us, if you want your music to move the very atoms in your body, we’re Rudy La Crioux and The All Stars, how do you do.
It’s an old cliché, Rock ‘n’ Roll will never die, well it won’t, we’re living proof of that. The only other music that has lasted longer is Mozart and his mates, you can’t give Mozart to the masses but you can give us.
I’ll guarantee if you put us on a stage, you’ll get the show of a lifetime, catch us in Europe and the UK this year and the States next year.
