Is there anything better in this world than a kick-ass rock and roll band? Take a touch of punk, a taste of rockabilly, and a whole mess of melody - then fire this combination up with a jolt of high-octane energy - and you’ve got The 99ers, crashing stages across the Midwest with their own brand of tuneful pop-punk.
If Eddie Cochran had joined the Clash, or the Collins Kids had fronted Green Day, then they might have recorded something like MOVE IT!, the fourth CD from the band. With 20 tracks of punkish rockabilly, covers of Brenda Lee, Eddie Cochran and Chris Montez, and the stunning vocals of Erik John, the band roars like an 18-wheeler down a rock and roll highway.
So set your phasers to stun, turn the volume knob up to 11, and feel the power of The 99ers rattling your windows, shaking your floors, and sending your pleasure centers into total, aural overdrive. When melody and power ignite in a roar of catchy, exhilarating rock and roll then there’s nothing you can do except... MOVE IT!
