"A head-on collision of rockabilly, tectonic garage punk and the production inventiveness usually attributed to the likes of Joe Meek or Phil Spector. Dean Carter started recording rockabilly in the late fifties in Champaign, IL and beat that path well into the late sixties. By then with an arsenal of the latest studio tricks, a bus-load of local talents and a single minded, twisted vision. Carter's unique take on Jailhouse Rock, released in 1967 on Milky Way, was coupled with Rebel Woman: A wall of fuzzed out guitar and Carter's swooping vocal range, punctuated with karate chops. It's a cigarette's time-scale roller coaster which dumps you at the end, exhausted by the relentless reverb energy, with Carter's closing monologue babbling in your ears as you fade away. Backed here with 'I Got A Girl' revealing another strand of Carter's mutant hybrid of rockabilly and garage. Needle in the groove, or direct to the jugular, the din underpinned by the throbbing rhythm of his local backing singers, Carter screams manic lyrics over a hastily scratched tremolo guitar. Mastered by Dubplates and Mastering, Berlin."
