I have some Necromantix somewhere in my CD collection, along with the Guana Batz and the Meteors from a psychobilly phase I went through. I've seen the Meteors and the Reverend Horton Heat live. However, as I've got older, I've got more into the "traditional" rockabilly from the Sun era: Carl Perkins, Charlie Feathers, Sony Fisher, Sonny Burgess etc.

The original rockabilly was simple and cheerful, and good dance music. It grew out of the music played by rural people in the south. Many of the early performers really were from sharecropping families. The later stuff from the "revival" is more urban with its roots in punk, and a conscious pastiche of aspects of the original: good but not as spontaneous. Or maybe I'm talking nonsense.

Be that as it may, you may wish to look up Wayne Hancock, known by some as the modern Hank Williams. He is very good indeed, and borrows from hillbilly, rockabilly, blues and jazz. Here's one of his more Hank-like tracks.
you should check out "on the edge" streaming on sat nites @ 9 PM cdst >Jack plays a lot of this stuff ... btw hank3 >>
