The Van Orsdels are in the forefront of Florida Psychobilly, and their shows are always phenomenal. TO my chagrin I kissed their set at the recent Koffin Katz and Nekromantix show, but George was kind enough to give me this CD. The title of this CD may be “Leftovers”, but this little CD is just as good as the main meal! A collection of 8 outtakes, demos, and tracks that were unused on their albums, these are all rawking Psychobilly numbers in the best Van Orsdels tradition. Included are the exclusive unplugged version of ‘Shallow Grave” (one of my favorite Van Orsdels songs); the campy “The Ballad of Stash and Hub” with it’s creepy tale of cannibalism; and I love the great bonus tracks. Fans of the Van Orsdels or Psychobilly in general should not miss this CD, which is a steal at only $8. I can’t wait to hear the van Orsdels next album!
