Third studio album for the horror punk duo of Ratfink (of Alien Sex Fiend fame) and Vince Ripper (of Rippersville legend).
They started in the 1990’s with their rockabilly DJ sets to continue in the 2000’s possessed by the spirit of the Cramps’ Lux Interior.
Coming from the dark swampy wastelands of Blackpool all the tracks of “Planet Shockorama” have one theme: an alien invasion.
Most of these 14 tracks are cover versions distilled through the filter of Vince Ripper and the Rodent Show: “Planet Claire” (B-52’s), “Teenagers from Mars” (The Misfits), “7 and 7 is” (Love), “I Can’t Find My Mind” (The Cramps), “Silver Machine” (Hawkwind), “Rocket U.S.A. (Suicide), “Mystery Plane” (The Cramps), “Flying Saucer Rock’n’Roll” (Billy Riley), “Est Trip to the Moon” (Alien Sex Fiend) “Scary Monsters” (David Bowie).
I started my day with this album and I have to admit that it is a great starter.
Thank you for this one Vince Ripper and the Rodent Show.
