Angie and the Car Wrecks / Press

“It'd be easy to tell you this is a great psychobilly EP, but its so much more than that. Metal, punk rock, country, and old time blues are the other present elements here. "Cowards" a blisteringly fast song with a killer opening riff that makes way to the explosion of upright bass, punk rock fast drums, "Hel was full" Angie's vocal range may be on best display on this track, as she sings somewhat softly at the beginning before "ripping the skin right off your face" once it gets moving. guttural growls under her hellhound wail are fucking awesome as well. "Little Stitches" starts out pure metal and stays that way through the duration the swinging, macabre solo is awesome. "Maniac"another circle pit inducing hellriot of a horrorpunkabilly song. nice dual kickdrum action reminds you that theres a lot of metal under this hot rods hood. "Silvertongue"starts moving quick and doesnt let up. seems like the way of doing things for this band.”

“This New Album By A&TCW Makes me want to go play in the mud, like I was a kid again. Or as an adult, Get on my Harley Davidson and flip off (MIDDLE FINGER) the cars around me on I5. Brings me back to good old fashion Rockin Punk n Roll.”

“Psychobilly, twang, and a little punk rock, furiously mixed together to produce a high energy, nitty gritty music experience. Angie and the Car Wrecks are a must see show. You can feel their love for each other and for their fans radiating off the stage when watching these guys… check em out!”

““Rockabilly is one way to describe Angie and the Car Wrecks. But an even more fitting description for the band is to call them psychobilly – standing for the blazing guitar driven songs of an up and coming act trying to bring back the original sounds of rockabilly. And let me tell you, they are having no problems with that goal. On each track, Angie Ball’s voice is truly captivating and fits the style of music perfectly. The songs ‘Some Kind of Hate’ and ‘Little Willys’ capture Ball’s voice at its finest. ‘Little Willys’ will also have you grooving for an eternity with great bass work and guitar work, all backed up by some serious drums. But the heart and soul of ‘Boozed and Bloody’ is clearly found in the song ‘Moonshine.’ This track also has some awesome harmonica work. I can’t wait to see what the Car Wrecks will do next!’”

"Envision pin up girls, hot rods, tattoos, zombies and beer in a raging tornado and you get the picture. Armed with washboards, harmonicas, guitars, upright bass, drums and Angie Ball’s vocals, Angie and The Car Wrecks give quite the listening experience. On a bang-up record label, Psycho-A-Go-Go Records, they released Boozed and Bloody, an album of a fantastic raw Psychobilly sound that channels the likes of Motorhead to Johnny Cash. I feel that their music would make a great soundtrack to any of the old zombie/slasher B-movies. At first listen, I started the album off at a reasonable volume but in a very short time I just had to crank it up, my toes a tappin’ uncontrollably to the track “Draggin’ Down.” Several of the tracks on the album sound like they could be Sun Records out takes. If you need a soundtrack to go along with reading that latest hot rod magazine or if you just need a fix of some real Psychobilly twang, take a few minutes and go check out Angie and the Car

"...this rockabilly/old school country band play music like they mean it. Feeding of (sic) the influences of such greats as Johnny Cash, Hank Williams Sr, Loretta Lynn and more contemporary acts like the Reverend Horton Heat AATCW bring their own style to the plate but with noticeable influences. The fastest tune in the collection just might be "Have another One" I bet the dance floor gets busy when they play this song live. It's a fun tune all about drinking and partying with lyrics like "hoist up them glasses kids and have another round" this song is a party song. So if you're a fan of good old country/rockabilly with a bit of a twist of it you're a psychobilly fan you will dig this collection of songs...for all your other Angie and the Car Wrecks needs stop by their repair show on the world wide web at www.angieandthecarwrecks.com it's one car wreck you wont mind being in!"

“Some might call 'em Rockabilly...or Psychobilly....or Honkytonkabilly. I call 'em my friends. They're definitely folks you want around and on your side if you're drinkin' or fightin'...or if you know some other way of havin' a good time.”

“Raw 'n' rockin', and as stripped-down as it gets Angie & the Carwrecks have lit up Grays Harbor with their rockabilly sound. From the opening cowbell of Little Willie to the Dick Dale surf sound of Psychobilly Boys, Angie and the Carwrecks bring a unique sound to the rockabilly world. From the free running baseline of Shawn's upright bass, to the jangle of Dale's guitar all held together by a driving backbeat laid down by Calvin, nothing is held back. Capped of with Angie's searing voice which ranges from a little country twang on Bender Bound and Iron Horse to the wail of Zombie Creatures, Angie and the Carwrecks has been a staple of The Garage on 104.7 KDUX, and with their song Junior Rebel being the first song ever played on the program that features music of the northwest. A fun rockin' rockabilly feel with a twinge of country, Angie and the Carwrecks bring the fun to rock and roll.”

“What can I say about the band, not only were they fun to work with they were easily one of the most prepared bands I've recorded. Everything was done on the first or second take. Also, they don't just play rockabilly, they live it. All hail Angie and the Carwrecks!”
