((Jack Penate)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

I've never been a rockabilly guy, but Jack Penate might be my gateway drug to the genre (but don't count on it). His songs are just so damn entertaining to listen to that I'm seriously considering purchasing some pomade.

Apparently the secret has long been out about Penate in his native England. I gather he and his band are huge in the U.K. since he's signed to the mighty XL Recordings there. And he has played the Reading Festival. Everyone who plays Reading is big like Radiohead, right? And they all roll around in the mud?

Ok sure, sometimes Penate reminds me a lot of that band, Dexys Midnight Runners. But whatever, I liked "Come On, Eileen" and don't say you didn't, too. If you want to tap into a strange emotion called happiness, check out Jack Penate. This rocks... abilly.
