“The Sour Mash Kats don’t just play psychobilly music. They live it. When the band isn’t flanking their high-octane fret-shredders with swampy, trashy ramalama, they’re celebrating all that is fleshy, kitschy and hot-wired. Hot rods, pompadours, leopard-print trimmed jackets. But, eventually, it all comes back to the music – ’50s rockabilly played with Sour Mash style, punk swagger and energy. “It’s halfway between Carl Perkins and the Ramones,” vocalist Ricky Racket says. “It’s ’50s rockabilly amped up. Late ’70s punk attitude with a country twang. It’s upbeat. Dare I say … catchy?” Catchy? Why not. At its core, the band’s music is stripped-down three-chord rock ’n’ roll played on bass, guitar and drums. But the energy behind it is primal, filled with snarling reverb and a rhythm section slapped black and blue. The combination isn’t too far removed from straight-ahead punk, says drummer Mr. P, who also plays with punk band Flamingo Nosebleed. ”
“The Sour Mash Kats, a Fort Wayne band that espouses psychobilly (a combination of the punk and rockabilly genres), always seems to draw enthusiastic audiences from all walks of life.”
