Lisa George And The Pedalos
The Devil Said Shake
Raucous

Lisa George and her boys, meanwhile, gorge on the garden paths treaded by Patsy, Wanda (apparently meeting with the approval of Ms Jackson herself) and perhaps Peggy Lee, but with a voice to suggest the currently continuing soaring success of Imelda May is as much a matter of circumstance than outstanding specialness (ok, aside from having guitar god Darrel Higham onboard) and one that is deserved of this lady as much as it would be Marti Brom or maybe Devil Doll stateside. Shaking the tree to cull peaches from the forties and nifty fifties she may indeed do but self-penned single Blue-Eyed Rockabilly Boy, the title track and guitarist John England’s Chuck-a-billy bopper Keep On Pushing stands above and beyond, and wags a forceful finger at, standards and such as the Burnette brothers Touch Me and Hip Shaking Baby The old ones may be the best but there’s enough here to suggest future outings wouldn’t be worsened by them stepping out with a few more originals. A clear case of DO shake me Lucifer.
