THE MIDNITERS

Easy Money (1988)

This is the debut album of the Brit-billy trio, originally released by Razor Records in 1988. This is slap bass-driven, fast Neorockabilly with a compact, clean, catchy sound and some similarities to their record label partners and tour mates The Long Tall Texans. The 12Ē vinyl has never seen the light of day on CD format. One of the highlights is a splendid cover version of the Temple Tudor classic Swords Of A Thousand Men. Other highlights are Dead Manís Curve, Better Of You and When The Walls Come Tumbling Down.

Walk the Line.. (1989)

 

This is the second album from short-lived THE MIDNITERS, who were wiped off the face of Psychobilly planet shortly after this Rage Records release. The general tone seems a little bit more gritty, not only on the lyrical contend but also sound-wise compared to their debut LP. Fat guitar twangs tight sound and strong song-writing complete a top-notch offering. This album was re-released as split CD together with The Juvies 'Playin' Hookie' in 2007. Favourite songs are Midnite, Walk The Line..., the lone cover version of the album Please Don't Touch, Blue and Some You Win Some You Lose.
