Best rockabilly/punk/shoegaze this side of the Gaza Strip! Charlie Megira and the Modern Dance Club

A Genius!
A Genius!

The haunting ballad that took my soul, “Tomorrow’s Gone” off The Abtomatic Miesterzinger Mambo Chic . I hear you Charlie!   This album sort of makes me want to fall in love again and kill myself at the same time.

This is “Coochimama Swingers” off Rock-N-Roll Fragments. The sound is so strangely captivating. I think Rock-N-Roll is his best effort overall. There is a wider swath of sounds, gives one the sense of what would come with Charlie Megira and The Modern Dance Club.

Best rockabilly this side of the Gaza Strip! If you can find “The Girl Who Was Afraid of Ashtrays” you’ll know exactly why I posted this!

And check out a side project, Charlie Megira and the Bet She’an Valley Hillbillies

Jack the Ripper, Sababa One, Freak Junior, And Now I Wanna Drown in Your Dark Dreamy Eyes, and other fabulous weirdness.

Getting Down!
Getting Down!

Unbelievably good rockabilly/punk/shoegaze insanity coming out of Israel. What started out as a sort of Link Wray opium dream morphed into a strange crossover of everything distorted-guitar, and it worked and at the same time seemed to be falling apart, barely held together, mournful.

Anyways, dance this shit around.
