ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NOTE: On the CD edition songs CACTUS CANDY and STOP KICKIN' BACK are replaced with THEY CALL ME BAD and KEEP YOUR HANDS ON THE WHEEL.

Buck Jones has been the driving force in the Finnish rockabilly scene since the late 1970s. Buck Jones & His Rhythm Riders, founded in 1978, released their debut album ”Crazy Chicken Boogie” on EMI in 1979, and both this album and the follow-up ”Explosive Rock-A-Billy” stood just a few copies shy of the gold disc award in the height of the 1970s’ rockabilly craze.

As one of the top Finnish bands of the genre, Buck & Riders toured Finland and Scandinavia on a regular basis. They were one of the very few Finnish bands studying the roots of rockabilly and using authentic instruments like slap bass and mandolin. Buck Jones’ unique sound is a melting pot of hillbilly, western music and zydeco ingredients mixed with authentic rockabilly.

After a couple of years the Riders disbanded, and Buck Jones founded Lonestars with Alpo ”Teddy Guitar” Hakala and Olli ”Rock-Ola” Pihlajamaa. Lonestars (later Falcons) were the most popular Finnish rockabilly band of the time, both home and abroad. They released two albums and toured Scandinavia, Holland and England, both on their own and as the backing group of the rockabilly legends Ray Campi, Jackie Lee Cochran, Johnny Legend and Mac Curtis. In addition to their hectic touring schedule, Buck and Teddy Guitar visited Ronny Weiser’s studio in Los Angeles and recorded an album called ”California ’81” with Rollin’ Rock Records crew.

If you fast-forward some 30 years, you’ll find Buck back on the Rebel rockabilly track with his new album ”Rockabilly Train”, to be released on May 29th 2015. The current line-up of his band features his long-time partner, guitar axe Perry Kaasalainen, and the solid rhythm section with Mika Railo on double bass and Marko Bergman on drums.
