“Waiting For A Train” is Swedish Lady Luck Combo’s smokin´ debut album. With their roots in rockabilly and rock´n´roll they move between related genres to create something entirely their own! The record´s introduction “Peggy Lee” is nothing more than a knockout at a furious speed!
With songs like “Cry Over You” and “Waiting For A Train” the band reaches the world of country, while “Rockabilly Reaper” and “Train To Catch” breathes Psychobilly! The band’s fascination for surf music also finds it´s place in the energetic “Surf Gadget” and the almost hypnotic “The Missing Link”, while the classic rockabilly is represented in “She Went To Vegas” and “Be-Bop-A-Lulu.
Influences you might hear includes Johnny Cash, Link Wray, Johnny Burnette, Carl Perkins, but the songs are, with one exception (“Broken Heart” by The Moonlighters, a forgotten classic!) original compositions, all performed with great virtuosity and expression.
Listen here to the first single “Be-Bop-A-LuLu” from the album!
The recording took place in Studio Möllan where they captured the raw and honest sound you only get from a well balanced rockabilly trio. All music is recorded live in the studio to make it as authentic as possible, only vocals and certain effects are added afterwards
