ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Texabilly debauchery at its darkest, drunkest and most decadent!” exclaims Razorcake Magazine, which sums up the music and attitude behind Ghoultown’s GIVE ‘EM MORE ROPE. This collection of 15 songs from the Texas-based band continues to solidify their unique style and image, which has brought attention from both fans and press alike since their inception in 1999.

Like their previous releases, GIVE ‘EM MORE ROPE blends cowpunk, western psychobilly and rock, delivering it all with a sinister spaghetti western flair. Complete with driving vocals, punk-twang guitars and mariachi-style trumpets, the music is a unique mix which could be compared to an uncharted mix of Nick Cave, Johnny Cash and Rob Zombie. GIVE ‘EM MORE ROPE boasts a fuller, heavier production and two of their best anthems to date: “Fistful of Demons” and “Carry the Coffin”. As well, songs like “Bloodshot”, “Bandito Sunrise” and “Smoke Break” showcase their obvious Ennio Morricone / Italian western influences.

Very original CD by my most favourite Band from Texas!
As I wrote in my subject line this Cd is really very original and kicks Ass! I am very satisfied with the music and the quality of the recording!! One of the best bands I have ever heard (and I heard a lot... believe me!) I can recommend this CD or better said: all Cd's of "Ghoultown" to everyone, who is interested in orginal Music! It is a mixture of Heavy Rock, Dark Music, Psychobilly combined with even more original instruments like trumpets... it really is a MUST-Have for every underground dog!!
Cheers to GHOULTOWN !

more rope, more rock!
Ghoultown really come into themselves with this album, finding their groove immediately with the awesome Fistful Of Demons (yes, it is similar to WASP's Fistful Of Diamonds in more ways than one, but so what?) and just going uphill from there. Dia de Los Muertos and Return Of The Living Dead are an amazing one-two punch, showcasing the band's ability to incorporate elements of traditional Mexican music and classic Misfits-styled horrorpunk into their very unique sound. I love this album all the way through. If you are into psychobilly bands like The Hangmen, classic hellbilly bands like Elvis Hitler, or modern insurgent country-punk like Hank Williams III & Assjack, you will dig Ghoultown. And I must say that Give 'Em More Rope is as good a place to start as any! Essential.

Elvis goes to Hell... and meets the Misfits!
Ghoultown, described by critics and fans alike as 'the Misfits meet Johnny Cash', are one of the most refreshing outfits I've heard in a real long spell.

Billed as 'Hellbilly or 'Spookghetti Western', GT clearly tread on ground pioneered by Fields of the Nephilim.

However, GT score more points with me than FotN ever did: the vocals, while not as sinister nor dramatic, are far more engaging over the course of an entire album (not to mention completely unpretentious), and the songwriting similarly is much more diverse. For example, their newest offering on Angry Planet Records, 'Give'Em More Rope' promises to stand as a classic in its genre. . . whichever that is: rockabilly punk or rockabilly goth or demonic southern rock. . . maybe I should just stick to the suggestion on their excellent website: 'Hellbilly'.

But I'm sure as shootin' not done masticating this gem of an album. Not only does it treat one of my favorite topics on an absolutely amazing song, 'Hang Me High', but this dark rollicker sold me on this band in about half a heartbeat. Another interesting reference is found in 'Dirty Sanchez', wherein our old deathfriend Lizzy Borden gave'er 'forty fuckin' whacks'. Hell, give'er fifty, Lizzy, and some more rope.

While the suprising diversity of the songwriting is impossible to miss, the album still has real unity due to the consistency of the mixture of its influences: punk, rockabilly, goth, southern rock, Mexican Mariachi and cinematic Western. And unlike the typical corporate (bad) chemistry which attempts poorly to create new sounds by mixing everything together but your grandfather's whistling, there is true flavor here, and individuality. You will not mistake Ghoultown for anybody else.

All the textures and cinematic associations of FotN are there, but the straight-ahead, aggressive and impassioned Rock'n'Roll is pure raw power. Why, of course these undead cowboys are Texans!

Keep on Rockin'!
The CD was great! 'Fistful of Demons' is a great catchy song that gets you pumped and ready for more. 'Return of the Living Dead' has you singing and swaying all the way through. The voice definitely sounds alot like Glenn Danzig. A couple times I caught myself asking if I was listening to the Misfits. This album is a pure blend of the Scotchgreens, texas psychobilly, and the Misfits.If this combination sounds good to you, then you will for sure like this CD.

Wow, something new under the sun!
I didn't know what to expect, but after the first song Fistful of Demons I was hooked! It's like psychobilly western with some heavier punk and tex-mex sounds thrown in. The choruses are catchy and the lyrics are like if Glenn Danzig were writing a Johnny Cash song. I'm looking forward to their next album!

Simply put, this is an incredible album. I expected no less after having listened to the previous album, Tales from the Dead West, over and over. However, this rose above my expectations like a zombie rising from the grave. Ghoultown really shows it's musical talent as well as versatility with Give 'Em More Rope. Rope picks up the pace where Tales left off- there's more death dealin outlaw tunes, but it adds to the flavor with a few more instrumentals and even some out-west comedy (Dirty Sanchez, anyone?). The recording quality is top-notch as is the playing of the entire band. Count Lyle and the gang have truly dished out another heapin' helpin' of undead cowboy carnage. You'll wish you had picked this one up when you're swingin in the gallows...
