Rockin' Song of the Week No. 104 - Delmer Spudd

Delmer Spudd & the Spuddnicks - Tom Cat Boogie
Rock-A-Billy Records

Time to fess-up here. I'd never heard of Delmer Spudd until today, when I saw a link to this song on Facebook. The Rock-A-Billy Record Company from Denver, Colorado, was founded by rockin' legend Willie Lewis and ran through most of the '80s and '90s with a roster that included among others, Go Cat Go, Ronnie Dawson, Marti Brom and High Noon.

From what I've found out, Delmer Spudd & the Spuddnicks are Willie Lewis, Mike Taveira, Ed Debord and Mike Baird. Whoever they are, the music is brilliant. It's a real slap bass rocker with great vocals, bass and guitar.

For more examples of this type of straight-up rockabilly, check out the International Rockabilly Asscociation page on Facebook. There's some crackers posted on there everyday.
