Hug Me Baby: Jeans that fit your super curves!

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 1 - 2014

Lady K Loves’ fantastic new high waist stretch jean, in a slim fit leg, cut for super curvy girls.

Do you have a hip to waist ratio Marilyn would be proud of? Is it a nightmare finding the perfect pair of jeans? Lady K Loves understand the frustration finding the perfect pair of high waisted jeans can be. Shopping can drive you mad! You either have to squeeze into a tight and uncomfortable pair of jeans or surrender and wear a bigger size that is loose fitted around your waist.

Lady K Loves HMB JeansThese amazing high-waisted and slim fit jeans are designed to flatter those super curvy figures. Hug Me Babies are the perfect pair of jeans that will embrace your curvy figure, accentuate your waist and also really comfortable to wear! Cut to be a snug fit and made from dark medium weight stretch denim, making them a figure-hugging and slimming pair of jeans. To sprinkle a little more perfection to these beautiful jeans, we added some more subtle elements so your bum looks visually lifted and slimmer, two-tone stitching, sweetheart yolk, and riveted pockets.

Pinup of the week four years later: Kitten Kaboom

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 29 - 2014

I began modeling at a young age, and I have grown to find the education side of the industry to be very rewarding. Coaching aspiring models on posing, working with photographers on model direction, and participating in photography workshops is how I spent much of last year. I’m still making my own art in the meantime, and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some very talented people along the way.

69Beavershot Baroeg

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 3 - 2014

IMG_0133After a couple of silent years 69 Beavershot played at the the Scum Bash festival earlier this year. They kinda picked up performing again, with drummer Rene. In July they were sharing stage with Bob Wayne, at the Baroeg. A dark and little venue in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Mostly alternative bands play there. Mostly hardrock, metal, but gradually Psychobilly, hillbilly is setteling at the Baroeg.
Guitar player Robert always has this great style of playing, inspired by Brian setzer, Scotty More, James Burton. His growling voice is just right for their kind of rough rockabilly. All their songs have titles you can easily sing and shout along with, like, red headed woman (my favorite although I’m not a red head), hell cat and speed track. 69Beavershot played their own originals as well as some covers. While guys sang along especially woman danced exotically in front of the stage. Is it because of their music or are they hoping Robert is giving them the eye?

Exciting news, reviews and interviews on rockabilly online

Posted by Dee-Ann On August - 31 - 2014

20140829_163913It’s been a long time since we reviewed albums, due to the big amount of albums offered and lack of enough reviewers , time and energy. But after a summer holiday well spent we are back on our feet again. I was going through 400 emails from all around the world! I answered 200 (the other half was spam) so now we got some great interviews coming up, fantastic pinup pictures of photographers and ofcourse album reviews.

To name a few: Four Star Combo, The Rockats, Kyle Esplin, Marco Di Maggio, The Reach Around Rodeo Clowns and ….. Reverend Horton Heat!
Did I mention Brian Setzer? Brian’s new album is coming up too!

To the artists who request a review, we only accept the physical albums, no downloads please, because our reviewers want to review the whole production. And be patient, we really do get a lot of emails and albums daily.

JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers interview

Posted by Dee-Ann On August - 27 - 2014

Picture by Joshua Black Wilkins

JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers started out as just the Dirt Daubers, an old-timey trio from Kentucky. However, we “went electric” over a year ago and started playing more blues and rockabilly. There’s a lot of old Chess era R&B in what we do too.

I have loved blues music since I was in my mid teens. I love the music of Muddy Waters, Magic Sam and Little Walter. I later discovered rockabilly guys like Charlie Feathers and Dex Romweber. Mojo Nixon, Jim Heath and other edgy modern guys made the music real to me. I draw inspiration from my home town, which is in the South and not far from where the blues and rockabilly were both born. I also still have a passion for Kentucky mountain music. Remember, you can’t have rockabilly without the “hillbilly” component.

drewjamie1The Lonestar Roundup this year fell on a very special weekend for me. It was my second wedding anniversary. My wife Jamie and I spent the tail end of our Honeymoon seeing Wanda Jackson play at the 2012 show. We opted out of the 2013 show, but this year marked our return to the realm of fast cars, loud music, and big hair. It was a return with a kick like a kangaroo.

After a relaxing morning filled with sugary ceral and Pulp Fiction on Netflix, we rolled into the Travis County Expo Center. Even from the parking lot, you could hear cars revving their engines and music blasting. Once in the vendor area, we were quickly greeted by severa

l friendly and familiar faces.

Slapback Johnny is like a hurricane passing by!

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 8 - 2013

SJ barSlapback Johnny is a Dutch rockabilly band. I asked drummer Richie, how did you come up with this name? Slapback is a short echo that is used a lot in rock & roll/rockabilly music. They wanted to name their band Slapback Trio but they are with four musicians so they chose “Johnny” because that sounded better. He tells us more about his band.

Slapback Johnny was founded after our former band fell apart in 2011.  Rex, Thijmen (aka the Real Killer) and myself had searched for a long  time before we found a suitable  Double bass-player, witch was Marcel  from .44 Shakedown. But due to the success of that band he  unfortunately had to leave our band way too early. We nearly wanted to  give up and go our separate way’s but luckily soon after that we  had found Peter, a crazy singer and Double bass-player “all in one”.  The Band has his roots in Wijk bij Duurstede (Utrecht) and we are  playing “on stage” now for about a year or so.  Slapback Johnny’s distinctive sound consists of swinging drums,  pounding doghouse bass, pumpin’ piano and some sweet guitar solo’s!

How did your love for this music start?
