The Psychobilly disease is spreading across the UK and Harry Powell and his mates have got it bad. They are followers of the brutal blend of Rockabilly & Punk that is seeping across Britain’s musical underground and from the Klub Foot to Morecambe Bay, they will go anywhere for wrecking and rumpo.Along with the booze, brawls and bunk-ups, Harry finds something even more special but a dark secret within the crew threatens to tear them apart. However, no matter what they face, their lives revolve around the adrenalin-fuelled, pounding beat of Psychobilly.Although set in 1987, ‘Psychobilly’ takes its influence from the 1970’s golden age of British pulp fiction when publishers such as New English Library canonised every aspect of working-class street culture in lurid paperbacks which delivered sex & violence to the masses in regular instalments.It’s not all boots ‘n’ bovver though as ‘Psychobilly’ also draws on the knockabout humour and sexual shenanigans of other knuckle-shuffling pulp novels such as Timothy Lea’s highly successful ‘Confessions of…’ books.If you understand the Psychobilly subculture then this is recommended reading. If you don’t… just think of it as ‘Gregory’s Girl’ with quiffs and top-shelf magazine strength smut.Craig Brackenridge has been writing about cinematic sleaze and demented Rock ‘n’ Roll since 1995 and his first novel ‘Psychobilly’ is solid slab of youth culture pulp soaked in knee-trembling smut. The book you can read with one hand!
