ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rockabilly Monthly, June 2005
Tremors "Uranium Rock" (Slave)
Profiled in RM in January, North Carolina's bone-rattling
Tremors are back with an incendiary 6-song CD that is also
available as a cool glow-in-the-dark green 45 with picture
sleeve.
Split half/half between choice covers and must-hear originals,
this disc is a fine complement to their earlier "Scourge of the South"
CD. Jimmy Tremor (guitar/vocals) Slim Perkins (stand up) and
Stretch Armstrong (drums) collaborated in penning addictive
boppers "Lovin' on My Mind" and "Make with the Shake". As is to
be expected from the Tremors, loose-jointed rockabilly is heavily
laced with toxic slam-bang punk fever, and let sparks fly where they
may. The frantic "Pill Popper" first appeared on "Scourge" and is
a worthy addition.
Well-picked and somewhat obscure covers include the title song
(Sun's Warren Smith), "Drive-In" by Mack Vickery and Carl Perkins'
winking "Her Love Rubbed Off".
That this CD contains only six songs may have kept it from "Editor's
Wallet" distinction, but then 6 are enough to hold us until the next
full-length Tremors release. Soon, guys. - D.C. Larson

The Scourge of the South is back with a vengence. With another great design in
black & white on Slave Audio Documents. If you haven't heard of the Tremors before,
you must read their bio and review of their previous CD release first... >>>JUST CLICK HERE>>>
This new mini-album is something special, apart from the fabulous cover design and the superb
tremulous music, it's released on CD as well as vinyl. The EP contains 4 tracks and is pressed on
mint green "glow in the dark" vinyl. Looks sharp! The inside is a large folded collage of band
pictures, very well done.
The mini-CD contains 2 bonus tracks. One is an alternate of the smash hit from their prevoius
album "Pill Popper", the second a version of Carl Perkins' "Her Love Rubbed Off".
It all starts with the title song, Warren Smith's "Uranium Rock", brought to you Horror Bop Tremors
style. This always was a great song, and this new revived version... well you just gotta rock!
"Make with the Shake" and "Lovin' on My Mind" are both Tremors originals, written by Tremor,
Perkins & Armstrong. Two great fast paced rockabilly songs with superb slapping by Slim Perkins
(don't you just love this guy). Jimmy Tremor's slightly distorted guitar makes the unique Tremor
sound that'll make you're skin crawl.
Last but certainly not least is a very fast rendition of Mack Vickery's "Drive-In" that'll knock you
off your feet. As with the "Scourge of the South" album, not for the faint-hearted rockabilly fan,
but damn good rock'n'roll music.

Blue Suede News, Summer 2005
The Tremors
North Carolina's hard rockin' trio the Tremors
deliver earth shakin' Rockabilly on their latest
mini-CD. The cool thing is vinyl lovers can snatch
up an explosive (looking) 4-song EP made out of
glow in the dark vinyl! That's a limited pressing of
500. The CD also glows and boasts two bonus tracks,
the fuzz guitar Cramps style original "Pill Popper" with
wild screams and Carl Perkins' "Her Love Rubbed Off"
in a Neo-Billy version. Both vinyl and CD contain Warren
Smith's "Uranium Rock" in a fast version and Mack Vickery's
entergetic "Drive-In". Their own "Lovin' on My Mind" and
"Make with the Shake" are fun, high energy rockers. Mix
the coolest SUN Rockabilly with the Cramps early Rockabilly
covers and you'll come up with a style that the Tremors have
down. -GMB
