Kentucky-based four piece rockabilly group, Rumble Club, have graced us with a sixteen track album of modern country tinged hillbilly rock. Greasers unite! Underground lounge lizards raise your drinks! This is heavy, gritty bar brawling rock n roll, not too unlike Reverend Horton Heat. Where the Reverend takes a lot of influence from country and rockabilly artists, he also infuses a grunge sound: loud monsterous guitars. That''s where the comparison stops with Rumble Club. Rumble Club holds closer to the country side of things, steering away from the rock sound, and the larger than life rock n roll guitars...there is a lot of pickin'', strummin'' and bendin''. The beats are just as you would expect: fast and furious, bouncy and dancable. It''s really great stuff on here, definitely drinking music. Really good for drinking when the band jumps through songs about gambling, murder, the devil and leaving town. The comparison with Reverend aside, the band also hits on some roots rock vibes. They strike me similar to Angry Johnny and The Killbillies. You can hear this very clearly on "Leaving This Town". Perhaps the most striking feature of Rumble Club is the lead vocalist. On several occassions Jack Coray delivers a dead on Johnny Cash...I mean on nearly every track! His extremely deep voice makes or breaks the songs on this album. He can bring it in tight and low or bellowing and voracious, adding to the maddeningly fast rhythms laid down by the rest of the band. The most Johnny-esque vocals appear on "Murder 1"...fricken'' incredible! For being the band''s second album, you''d never know it. They''ve got a tight sound, and seem pretty aggressive in their aproach to a well defined and scrutinized genre. Fans of fast paced country doused rockabilly, the Reverend and even roots rock should check out the power of the Rumble Club. -MG
Whether it’s Fistcuffs, Murder Ballads, or Hellbillies in a ‘59 Caddy,.. Rumble Club once again delivers their edgy deep rampaging sounds on their second full length CD; In Case Of Rumble…
Original songs that capture the essence of the Renegade, the Criminal, and the Rebel. Jack Coray’s “Deep as the Mississippi Voice” is bigger and more affluent than ever on this new album. All inclusive with finely executed guitar parts by Jack and new members Jay “Chewy” Clark on acoustic guitar with, heart pounding stand up bass by Alex “Bones” Becket, and train engine driving drum beats coming from Tim Heinrich.
Simply put, Rumble Club is an all original act that sounds like no other…

Ready to Rumblebilly? ~ By Mike Breen
Rockabilly music seems to have more spin-offs than All In the Family. Sub-genres include Psychobilly, Voodoobilly, Thrashabilly, Punkabilly, Horrorbilly, Countrybilly and numerous others. I even found one Web site that said if you want to start a Rockabilly band but haven''t yet, you play "Probabilly."
With a couple of exceptions, many of these ''billy clubs are started by one band, which becomes the sole practitioner. You rap over Eddie Cochran riffs? Congratulations, you''re the pioneer of Rapabilly. Your music''s like Charlie Parker meets the Stray Cats? Welcome to Bopabilly -- population: you.
The sound of Northern Kentucky''s Rumble Club has some elements of many of the various subgenres, but none are quite appropriate to describe the band. The foursome fuses Pscychobilly''s rocket-fuel energy but retains strong ties to Rockabilly, Rock & Roll and Country tradition. There''s also a little Surf thrown in. For a genre so locked into to tradition, it''s refreshing to hear artists like Rumble Club find there own distinct voice. Ultimately, thanks to great songwriting and their less restrictive approach, they land somewhere all their own. Therefore, by the powers invested in me by absolutely no one, I proclaim that Rumble Club''s music will now be classified as "Rumblebilly."
Rumble Club began in 2004, releasing an EP, followed by the full-length, Rumble Club Rides Tonight, a year later. The band has drawn international attention, earning radio play on variously formatted stations around the globe and scoring write-ups in publications like Rockabilly Magazine. The band''s new record, In Case of Rumble ..., should facilitate even more praise. In Case is being released Friday in conjunction with an RC show at downtown''s Poison Room. The fun starts at 10 p.m. and features guests Lost State of Franklin, Hotel War and local Roots music hero, David Rhodes Brown.
Each song on In Case of Rumble is like a mini-version of an old pulp novel, telling tales of juvies, hot rods, gamblers and other cool outsiders and troublemakers. The members are ace instrumentalists and their dexterous chops are one of the main reasons In Case works so well. While it sometimes seems that adrenalized Rockabilly/Psychobilly acts are started by young ruffians weaned on Punk whose admiration of the bygone-era of Rockabilly''s peak doesn''t translate to convincing performance skills, Rumble Club almost seems the opposite. Their deftness and command enables them to infuse "outside" elements rather naturally.
While more than capably supported by an airtight, vigorous rhythm section, it is singer/guitarist Jack Coray''s guitar work and magnetic vocals that are the most instantly grabbing. He plays guitar like a cross between Carl Perkins, Junior Brown and Dick Dale and he''s vocally akin to Johnny Cash and Mike Ness, making for a devastating combination. Highlights include chugging, slashing rebel anthem "The Youngers," the clickin'' instrumental "Chicken Pickin''," the punky, overdriven "''59 Caddy" (which recalls The Cramps wonderfully) and the more traditional strut of "Rockin'' Billy Rooster." Whether you like Rockabilly, Punk or just great, pure Rock & Roll, Rumble Club has just what you need. And more. (https://www.tradebit.com)
