To the casual listener, the psychobilly music scene seems to be gearing up for a revival of sorts, but as diehard fans with flattop hairdo's and quiffs would tell you, it's remained strong all these years. Tonight's Noche De Los Psychos event proves this point, with musical guests that include local trio Crash Cadillacs to pioneers The Meteors. Boasting themselves as originators of the genre, British band The Meteors are the undisputed Kings of Psychobilly, having formed in 1980 and played alongside other British groups The Clash and UK Subs. Thirty-plus years, nearly fifty albums and several lineup changes later, The Meteors have stayed on top of the psychobilly pyramid, not breaking for single minute and continuing to pump their tracks next to newer generations the world over.
