“If Debbie Harry Fronted The Cramps, but was possessed by Dracula." - We aren't sure where this quote came from, but it definitely fits when describing Chicago's Super Sonic Space Rebels. The Psychobilly trio definitely has aspects of The Cramps but they also have sprinkles of Joan Jett and New York Dolls. The music is great and their style is great. In an age where it seems people in bands never put effort into stage wear, the Space Rebels look cool and it reminds me of a time when I would actually listen to a band because they looked interesting. I miss that.
Last month they released their self-titled album. They have been a featured band on Sirius XM's Little Stevens Underground Garage channel. Watching the band on clips from their Facebook page you can tell they love playing live and put a lot of emphasis on mastering the stage and audience. If you are looking for something a little different, you will probably dig the Super Sonic Space Rebels.
