Offering a tantalizing glimpse at the underbelly of rock 'n' roll, this collection revisits a dangerous, exciting time when rockabilly mutated with punk to form . . . psychobilly! "Deathrow" was the world's only long running psychobilly fanzine, and this collection features all the rare and collectable original issues. The zine grew into a properly printed magazine with a circulation in excess of 5,000 copies per issue. Packed with articles on bands such as The Meteors, The Frantic Flintstones, The Sharks, Frenzy, Batmobile, Demented Are Go, this is a valuable reference of events, bands, and stories for those too young to have experienced the European psychobilly scene in its heyday and a nostalgic reminder for those who were a part of it--and survived! If you were or still are a psychobilly, this book is essential reading.
