An "Even Bloodier Edition" of the legendary psychobilly album 'Blood On The Cats' which was originally issued in 1983 on Cherry Red's Anagram label. Featuring the original album which successfully combined music from UK psychobilly scene leaders The Meteors, The Sting-Rays and The Guana Batz, US pioneers Panther Burns, Irish punks The Outcasts, gothabilly rockers Alien Sex Fiend and even horror rocker Screaming Lord Sutch to create a suitably psychotic blend. Plus a further 45 rockin' and wreckin' cuts, casting a similarly wide net to include the US group that inspired the movement, The Cramps plus fellow American exponents The Gun Club, along with early recordings by psychobilly heroes Frenzy, Restless and The Krewmen, the infamous King Kurt who were the only UK psychobilly group to get on Top Of The Pops, garage trash from The Milkshakes, The Prisoners and The Tall Boys and neo rockabilly from Dave Phillips And The Hot Rod Gang alongside mainland Europe acts The Nomads and The Voodoo Dolls from Sweden and The Raymen from Germany. Rarities include Phoenix, Arizona band Grant And The Geezers' self-released 'Monster Stomp', Swedish psychobilly combo The Voodoo Dolls' 'Split Personality' and 'Death Letter Blues' the B- side of scene stars The Krewmen's debut single. Psychobilly was one of the biggest youth cults of the 1980s, remembered for the followers' gravity-defying quiffs and aggressive "wrecking" dance. The music became an adrenalized mix of rockabilly and punk featuring lyrics often inspired by horror and science fiction films. 'Blood On The Cats' was the first compilation to try to define psychobilly and many fans' first exposure to a genre that, at that stage, was still unformed, being part of a worldwide movement inspired by punk but devoted to primitive rock 'n' roll of the 1950s and 1960s. Most of the groups included here played The Klub Foot at The Clarendon Hotel Ballroom in Hammersmith which opened in 1982 and soon became the psychobilly scene's focal point, only closing in 1988 when the venue was knocked down.
