This Swedish band started out as The Driving Wheels in 1983. Three or four years later, they changed the band name to Crestlers. You crack me up was recorded in a living room throughout 2002.
After the album had been mixed and mastered in March 2003, it came out in 2004 on Caine Rock music.
The opener Roll the Dice kicks in nicely. The second song I'm a Crestler, published before on the Count Orlok label, is a slightly different sounding mix of punk rock and psychobilly, including rockabilly guitar, double bass and piano. Clearly, this band is not bad at all. Everything you can hear on this CD is decent psychobilly material. My Sweet Caroline is Neo-Rockabilly proof that they are pretty good at writing their own songs too. Silence Tells Me and Lonely Man are a bit too slow and too much like rock ballads for my liking, but Crestlers stomper Find someone new just like you is very effective and Sick & Twisted sounds exactly the way a good psycho song should. With a twist of harp giving it an Irish edge, I hold my head up high is a well mixed and mastered Neo-Rockabilly song. At the end, the album slows down again with There was Love, a song with accordion and vocals reminiscent of Buddy Holly.
Crestlers are a band with their own unique style.
