BILLY BOYS
Cadillac
7"
2010

"Lajaville revisited: The Billy Boys music is for the visionaries,
imagists, symbolists, outsiders and lowbrow. It will survive all the
trends. Its in the world but out of this world. Somehow futuristic yet
primitive. Lajas eerie and nervous mumble is like a horror version of
the late Vince Taylor locked up in a psych ward. This ultra
minimalistic electrobilly is backed with a static, almost stoic, beat
and its rumbling through the concrete jungle in a shiny black
speedoplane heading for tomorrow-land in a silver neon rain. Theres
messed up Elvis in his smoking hot blue jumpsuit munching away double
cheese burgers with RC Cola. Theres tough looking ladies in latex
uniforms and spike heels breathing heavily through their gasmasks.
Theres former Finnish President Kekkonen. Bald head gleaming and hes
receiving crazy visions behind his big square glasses. Trains,
cadillacs, speed. Fingers tapping the leather bound steering wheel.
Rural landscape and icy rivers. Nightmares in heat. Homeros would be
proud. Tears in the eye of a lonesome man. Future now."
