Psychobilly legends the Krewmen prove that they still have what it takes to get the crowd on their feet with an electrifying, early '90s-era performance captured live before a sold-out crowd at legendary U.K. venue Billy's. Formed in 1982 by Tony McMillan, the Krewmen rocketed to fame thanks to a memorable performance as Elvis Presley's band in 1985's Elvis: The Musical, the Krewmen released a pair of red-hot singles before briefly disbanding and returning to the scene with such aggressive new tunes as "Swamp Club Ball," "Night Shift Blues," and "Hell Train." Of course the Krewmen are always happy to pay tribute to the greats as well, and in addition to opening with a rousing cover of the Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go," the band punches up the Monkees' "Steppin' Stone" and tears through "Shout" with the intensity of a freight train. With five promotional videos also included, this is one release that's certain to get Psychobilly fans reaching for the pomade and revving their engines.
