“Their album, Long Gone, starts with “Water and Bread,” which will knock you out of your boots. The title track salutes Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, and the Dead Kennedys at the same time. They, like me, have a serious crush on psychobilly girls, as is evidenced by the song “Tits Deep.” The drums are wicked on “Cry for Me,” and the band swings like the best honky-tonk bands on “Door of Freedom.” The Elixirs make no attempt to hide their love of metal and doom rock. “17-12,” “Soul,” “Cowboy Rot,” and “Sea of Lies” let them flex their Danzig muscles and “Torn Rose” would be at home on any decent metal album. There are good drinking songs, too. “Misery,” “Standing in the Rain” (with its great bass), and “This Kind of a Mood” will make you want to raise a glass. “Loser” is a song that will make you raise a glass and then possibly smash it over your head as it kicks into serious rock.
