Atomic Junkyard is a rocka-psychobilly trio, with surf, garage-punk, country, R&B, and blues influences. They bring their own energy, attitude, and a healthy dose of disregard for the boundaries and limits often foisted on rockabilly bands.
This music used to be called “rock-n-roll”.
Atomic has been steadily building a fan base with their high energy live show and down-to-earth, indie-style approach. The music is largely original, with a few quirky covers occasionally thrown in for good measure (often on a whim). Although they will play good ol rockabilly, they are also unafraid to step out of the confines of the genre to create original music that reflects their interests and taste, rather than confining themselves to what Wikipedia defines the genre as.
Although Atomic is certainly inspired by much of the early rock and roll/rockabilly music of the 1950s, this is no “retro” or “oldies” act. Rather than trying to imitate 60 year old records (as much as they love them), Atomic jumps off of this base to blast you with vital, original music happening here and now.
