“Reel, Folk’n’Rock’n”Roll” is the cleverly titled 2001 release from Glasgow’s own the Electrics. The music is no bullshit REAL (fast) rock’n’roll infused with a wide range of electric folk music from the Irish and Scottish folk tradition to the American Country and Bluegrass sound to Motorhead. Check out the cover of the Violent Femmes “Rejoice and be Happy” with it’s “Ace of Spades” introduction.
This is folk rock whose pure intensity will scare the hell out of the folkies but will certainly please the rockers. Definitely more for the leather jacket crowd then the wooly jumper set.
