More sonic gyrations from Dan Sartain. Dan Sartain vs The Serpientes is getting reissued and it is it's first outing on wax. Full of Sartain doing his thing with his haunting vocal, raw and rattling guitar - accompanied by bass and drums. Doing his best Carl Perkins and Elvis impressions but with a hard rockabilly backbone. It's contemporary but still sounds nice and warm. Out on vinyl LP from One Little Indian.

6/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 17th February 2016
“Dan Sartain vs. The Serpientes” was the first official release by Dan Sartain, although it was the third album he’d recorded. It was released in 2003 by Swami Records, the label owned by John Reis of Rocket From The Crypt. Reis, along with other members of RFTC play on the album and it has a similar punky/rockabilly vibe and also takes in a bit of ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll.
It is similar to quite a lot of bands that were around in the early 2000s such as the Hives, listen to “P.C.B. ’98”, or the Strokes, check “Walk Among The Cobras Pt.2” and “Metropolis” has a Libertines-ish swagger without the sharp lyrics. It will appeal to fans of RFTC, although it doesn’t quite have the propulsive energy and punch of their best stuff – “Born in ‘69” or “Young Livers” for example. It’s okay, not as good as the bands I’ve mentioned though.
