The Swingin' Neckbreakers "Shake Break!" 1995

If you like raw 60s rock and roll with no glossy coating, then this is the stuff.In September of 1995, Telstar Records unleashed The Swingin' Neckbreakers' second lp, Shake Break! (Telstar 019) on an eager public. The album shows the confident strides the Neckbreakers have taken since their auspicious debut. Tom Jorgensen's songwriting has gained in maturity without sacrificing anything in impact. "Wait", "The Answer Is No", "Help Wanted" and Mighty Mack" are among the Neckbreakers' most powerful originals to date. "Action Kid" offers a poppier approach to the Neckbreakers' sound.
Once again, the band has done a great job of choosing cover material from diverse sources. Garage rock is represented by "That's The Way My Love Is" (The Trolls), "Get Down On Your Knees" (The Underdogs) and "Brown-Eyed Girl" (The Golliwogs). Also included is one of the Neckbreakers' most popular live numbers, Glen Barber's "Ice Water", which began life as a western swing. The trio also pays tribute to Rock 'n 'Roll icons Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and Bobby Fuller.
Hot on the heels of Shake Break!, The Swingin' Neckbreakers hit the road to support it. A number of fall '95 dates in The U.S. with Southern Culture On The Skids (whose album Dirt Track Date was issued on vinyl by Telstar) were followed by a return trip to Europe from October 28th to November 19th. - from: Swingin' Neckbreakers:
Don "Shaggy" Snook (guitar, vocals); Tom Jorgensen (bass, vocals); John Jorgensen (drums, vocals). Additional personnel: Tom Bergin (harmonica); Dave Amels (organ).
