Hot Rods & Pin-Ups
Atomic Sunset is a rockabilly trio formed in 2003 in Belgrade, Serbia. Music roots vary from rawness of 50's Sun stuff to modern day rockers. The band combines rockabilly, surf, punk, swing and everything that takes to create unique and energetic modern rock'n'roll sound. They have been touring few times across Europe. Atomic Sunset is a brainchild of one of the world's best upright slap bassists Djordje Stijepovic (Deke Dickerson, Lemmy Kilmister, Slim Jim Phantom, Scotty Moore band, Wanda Jackson). Accomplished guitarist Drazen Skaric (who was a co-leader of Havana Whisper with Djordje) is also a founding member of the band. The great recent addition is the drummer Atomic Alek (Soulfly, Bloodbath), well known for his long membership in one of the most famous Serbian rock bands Eyesburn. 'Atomic Sunset are to Rockabilly what the Clash are to Punk music. They try to push the boundaries and don't want to limit themselves to just one type of music. A good and refreshing state of mind.' - Jumping from 6 to 6 'There's some incredible guitar playing here, and slap-bass man Djordje is becoming known as one of the world's best. It is very modern and now! Powerful thumpin' stuff.' - Really Rockabilly 'It's so catchy and misterious, at the same time lyricaly very clear, that made me listening to it repeatitly, from the beginning, one more time and again. Pure dynamite!' - Trablmejker.
