Slung a Rod

by: Atomic Boogie

Album Artwork

(Resaca Records)

The first time I saw Atomic Boogie live they were opening a show down at The High Lonesome Saloon in Rome, Georgia. The three-piece rockabilly band captivated my attention for 45 minutes of solid bombastic twang. No small wonder I could hardly wait to spin their new disc the moment I pulled it out of the bubble pack mailer.

“Slung a Rod” opens the set in true rockabilly style before moving into the breakup song “67 Ford Mustang.” Chad, John and Steve are a real swingin' combo, and the whole album just rocks. From “Bad News Baby” to “Jump n’ Jive,” which features Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie) on sax. And speaking of guest artists, Johnny Neel contributes some fine piano and B-3 Hammond organ to the disc.

The album was produced in Nashville by Dennis Gulley, who along with brother Russell Gulley had a fine Southern Rock band back in the day called Jackson Highway.

If you like rockabilly as much as I do, you’re gonna really dig Atomic Boogie. Three good ol’ Georgia hillbillies who can really make you wanna bop. Have mercy miss Percy, this is a good record.
