Take a look at these guys. They look fairly tame. Maybe an instrumental combo, or a vocal group. If you gave them the benefit of the doubt, maybe you'd figure them as some early Northwest type garage band. That Night Raiders name does sound vaguely tough. Never would have I imagined though, that they were rockabilly or raw fifties rock 'n' roll, or whatever it is that you'd call them. I don't care, raw and rockin' is exactly what they are, and that's good enough for me.
Mickey Hawks was the singer on these, he's the guy in the back, a third or fourth tier guy in rockabilly circles. You might not know him, but you can get caught up real fast with a detailed bio over at the ever reliable Hound Blog. Now soak your skull in these.
