Pymp World

Trust ol’ man Tyfus to unleash this American psychobilly, Frankie Hurricane, onto unsuspecting European audiences. The album (originally a self-released tape, then issued as a CDR on Joshua Burkett's Mystra label) is tie-dye Manson Family folk meets the ear-worm vocal melodies and loner-jazz/orchestral arrangements of Blod’s Knutna Nävar. Throw in the heart-bleed blooz of ‘One Night At Wildorado’ and it’s only a sidestep to the ‘gangstrous’ hip-hop excursions of ‘Who U Is?’ and ‘Pymp World’ around the corner (neither of which would be out of place on Del-boy Edwards’ L.A. Club Resource). It’s an art-damaged-folk DIY-hip-hop-country travelogue clearly patched together at different times with borrowed equipment and with no mind paid to consistency (refreshing!). The fact that the LP was written in Georgia might be the only thing that gives it any sense of plausible context. But only maybe. Approach this one with an open mind and you shall be rewarded time and time again. Edition of 250 copies with insert.
