This album is ace. It's the first of creepshow's releases and features Jan 'Hellcat' Blackwood on vocals on the recorded album and her sister Sarah 'sin' (who took over when Jan went to have a baby) in the live gig dvd. If you like bands like the Horrorpops and Zombina and the skeletones you will love creepshow and this album. Sell your soul is a mixture of psychobilly/punk/rock/pop. It's fun and quirky, with it's sermon spoken over a spooky hammond organ. Doghouse is a great track and will have you giggling to yourself at the end. If you're looking for an album that is fun, fast and furious, this is it. it will leave you smiling wickedly. Basically it kicks ass!
I've only recently heard this band since finding them on the bill at the coming UK 'Rebellion' festival, so I youtubed them and was intrigued enough to buy this album. All I can say is its an absolute gem, frantic, fast and fun, great catchy songs, the whole album uplifts me and makes a 47 year old a very happy chappy indeed. Songs like 'Zombies Ate her Brain' and 'Creatures Of The Night' just make you want to get up and dance...the pace slows down considerably for 'The Garden' but what a beautiful song it is. A great album and what a great find to me The Creepshow are!!! Can't wait to see them!! The bonus DVD is great too, with singer/guitarist Jen Blackwoods sister, Sarah, stepping permanently into her shoes and doing a fantastic job- most of the songs on this dvd are from this album too, with a great version of The Ramones 'Pet Semetary' covered and 'Run For Your Life' which is the title and song of their second album. If you like rockabilly, punk, horror-punk, psychobilly - then this is a great mix of them all...I'm very hard to please these days, but this album has passed my test - just buy it - you won't be dissapointed!!!
great debut album by canadians the creepshow. excellent pophooked horrorbilly punk, with the sexiest female vocals you'll hear all year. unfortunately, lead singer/guitarist jen hellcat left this year, but was replaced by her equally sexy sister who pulls off the vocals brilliantly.
all the songs are up beat, musically and lyrically well written and most importantly, great fun, i cant keep still wen listening to this.
check em out on tour if u can. great live too. cant wait for a follow up
This is my sound of the summer. I came across the band on YouTube and have been singing "Zombies ate her brain" ever since. Listening to this record is like going to the Rocky Horror Show for the first time and seeing a well loved children's TV personality in a basque, a bit weird.
