4.0 out of 5 stars Watched Kung Pow? 12 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's an oldie, Revamped by a psycho drummer and his burning guitar riff churning buddies! It is a kick ass little single that will make your feet tap and your head bob. I wish I had it, perfect for those of us who like our rock straight, simple and void of any true meaning other than pure simple fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiderbait: Black Betty 16 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
This single is the first song i heard from spiderbait and have been interested ever since! Black Betty is an awesome song often played on scuzz or the amp on the sky music channels and has a kick ass video to go along with the catchy tune. its availability is strangely low and still cant get a copy of it but live and hope it could be on sale now! good luck and buy this single!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rams Ram-Jam into the Californian road dirt! 30 May 2004
By Dario Western - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
At last! Inveterate whimsical thrash-trash trio from Finley Lake have finally made it to No.1 in Australia with an earth-shattering cover of the old Ram Jam one-off classic "Black Betty". Featuring a well-worn bluegrass riff (almost reminiscent of their 'Old Man Sam'), the song tends to remain faithful to the original arrangement minus the guitar solo. With Kram's growly vocals sounding like they were sung through a sheet of tracing paper over a kid's megaphone, it has one of the most awesome middle-eights to come from a rock record in aeons. It pounds, bounces, and the beat threatens to stamp a hole the size of the grand canyon into the old school dance halls.
Although they sound like they've forsaken their ventures into the dance territory, the CD still features some fine dance tracks for the club crowd and is the perfect introduction for the 'baiters to the UK & US crowd, where they've recently signed with the mighty Interscope label. So kids, give the Eminem, NIN, 50 cent and D-12 CD a rest for a while to say hi to their new labelmates!
As one prominent Aussie music mogul says "Do yerself a favour, and add these simply marvellous guys to your collection!"
