“We reckon these guys are fantastic live, and the energy that the song exhudes is absolutely brilliant. It’s great to hear something like this in a world where traditional rock ‘n’ roll seems to be quite rare, so you really ought to check this track out! –York Calling (UK)
“…(Wake Up, You’re Rockin!) lovingly recreates the wild sexuality, aggression, and just plain weirdness of early rock’n’roll with an updated sensibility. “ –Adobe and Teardrops (USA)
Just in time for All Hallows Eve, we are proud to present the music video for Don’t Forget About Me, the b-side to our new vinyl 45. Shot and directed by the very talented Bob Sweeney. It was shot on location at Hidden River Brewey and the historic Brinton Lodge in Douglasville, PA. Featured cameos included Matones Music owner Adam Matone, the always enigmatic Cantaloupe Joe and the tattooed hands of Hidden River’s chiff brewmaster, Kevin Margitich. Enjoy!
Special thanks to Adam and Matones Music in Collegeville, PA for helping to finance the pressing. When we mentioned we were considering doing vinyl, without hesitation he immediately offered to donate some money for the cause. Support your local record store! Support your local scene! It’s a win-win for everyone.

Mighty Joe Castro and the Gravamen – “Don’t Forget About Me”
-The tag these fellas have on this song on Soundcloud is rockabilly. That’s pretty accurate. It’s certainly not old school country music. But we don’t mind one bit because whatever you call it, the sound works really well. It’s jangly and fun; it’s got a simple but rewarding message about staying in someone’s mind even if things don’t work out. Yep, can relate.

Aunques sea un mini lp o Ep de 4 temas esta banda de Philadelphia permiten aventurar que nos pueden ofrecer empresas mayores por que lo que suena aqui en plan homenaje a los años 50 no es bueno sino que es de lo mejorcito que se puede escuchar en este año SOBERBIO VALORACION TRES ESTRELLAS
“Although this isn’t my kind of LP or EP of 4 songs, this band from Philadelphia allows us to imagine they can offer bigger things than what they play here in this homage to the 50s. It is not just good but the best we can listen to this year. SUPERB. VALUE THREE STARS.”
