"Not only their debut mini lp on Sound Interesting Records attract a hard rockin' following for this Buffalo band but their shows with the Blasters, Ventures & the Chesterfield Kings also earned them new fans . The Viceroys' sound is a blend of rockabilly and surf except for the last track (taken from "The rebel kind" compilation also on Sound Interesting records & Lolita

I'm originally from Buffalo and I remember The Viceroys very well. They were an exceptional live group. Saw them numerous times. I'd forgotten they put out this record. Really looking forward to hearing this. I think they have another song, not on this EP, called "Wrong Way on a One Way Street" that was on a local music comp that was also dynamite. I wish they would have put out more music. Big time thanks for this post!
