4) What does "CHEEKY RASCALS" mean?

When you translate Cheeky Rascals into German Language it`s called “ Satansbraten “.
It means : Like a son of the devil / an very awful child
That’s why our symbol is an trident.

5) What are your best 'Live' memories?

We enjoy all our live gigs, but specific the "OPEN AIR" concerts this year.

6) What would you say about the actual Neorockabilly & Psychobilly scene?

In our opinion it’s so that the most people get older and left the scene and no new people come to the Psychobilly music.
That’s one of the reasons why the concerts are not so filled like years before. An other problem is that the tikets for the concerts get partly so expensive that the people wont come.

7) What are your musical Influences?

Our main influences are Psychobilly, Rockabilly and Punkrock.

8) Do you think that the CHEEKY RASCALS sound like Neo-Rockabilly With Psycho attitude?

May be. You can call it how you want.
The different between Neo-Rockabilly and Psychobilly is by some bands not so easy to hear. We say it's a kind of Oldshool Psychobilly with Rockabilly influences.

9) Your first LP has just come out on Crazy Love Records.
Could you describe it?

We are very glad that Guido say yes to our recordings. He has so much to do and not realy time for new projects like us.
So it takes a few month between sign the contract and press the CD/LP.
In the end we are all happy about the result. And the criticism about the album are not bad.

10) What are the next projects of the band ?

In this month we moved with our testroom.
It was much work because we make everything new.
In the next few month we want to built there our own recording studio, so that we can record there our next album.
Some of the new songs are ready but we have to write some more. We think that the next album sounds a little bit harder.

11) Have you got something else to add ?

Till now we played 15 concerts this year in germany.
We hope that we get some more gigs this and in the next years.
We also want to play outside from germany. So check out our webside and ask for gigs:
Keep on rocking and don’t change your style.
