Never Return to Me
Rockabilly, Neo-Rockabilly, Hillbilly, Jump Blues, Swing, Surf, blah, blah, blah ... Hell, I guess labels are a necessary evil on some level, but still ... All we really know is that the Straight 8s like their rock-n-roll from an era when it was still pink and raw.

'Never Return To Me' is the follow up release to the 2003's 'Casualties of Cool'. Using the same adept writing skills and catchy rhythms, Robert Striegler, Pat McGraw and Bernie Fox returned to the studio to knock out another 13 tracks of what can only be called ... well, that elusive knack the Straight 8s have for just plain great songs! There's energy aplenty here folks ...
