You Better Do It (1985)

This is the wild, raw four-track debut EP from Finland's premier Psychobilly export, originally out as 7 vinyl on home-grown Raunchy Records. All songs are uptempo, straight Neorockabilly with  fat slaps from the doghouse bass and clear guitar sounds, recorded by this teenage trio in 1985. Tracklisting: You Better Do It-- I Just Keep Loving Her // Stomp And Climb The Walls-- Born To Love One Woman.

Crime And Punishment (1988)

This is arguably another lost classic of Psychobilly music. After being picked up by the German Tombstone label, the Scandinavian Psychobilly pioneers created their eight-track full-length debut in 1988. An incredible variation of sounds, tempos and themes, awesome guitar play, tight rhythm section and creative song-writing, make Crime And Punishment a top-notch offering. Among the highlights are very unique version of the Rock'n'Roll standard Jezebel, the opening track Metamorphosis, the trashy Let's Go Outside and their band theme Stringbeat.

You Better Do It (1990)

This is an excellent compilation of early recordings from the Scandinavian trio. The ten-track LP, also out on Tombstone, covers the band's early years, including the complete You Better Do It EP, the Total Jerk 7 single, the excellent stompers Demon Girl and Smell Of Kat , which were originally out on the Psycho Attack Over Europe album series plus two more recordings from that era. Besides the tracks from the earlier mentioned tracks from Psycho Attack Over Europe, highlights are You Better Do It, Ill Cry Instead and their strong  cover of the 50's standard Born To Love One Woman.
