Well, it's much as it says on the box in that this is a shamelessly retro collection of (mostly) originals which spin off from rockabilly, rock'n'roll, doo-wop, Fifties ballads (the natty V8 Lullaby), harmonica-honkin' rhythm'n'blues and so on.
It doesn't aim towards the sleazy and outrageous Cramps end of the spectrum (so no delinquency and horror really) but rather the more tame soundtrack for a works function, rockabilly-themed party and a dance where people don't mind dressing up in faux leopard-skin waistcoats and tight dresses.
Against the Law features former Sex Pistol bassist Glen Matlock on vocals.
Best enjoyed live in other words, and their tour (dates below) is sponsored by the music/talk radio station Magic.
