It has been Jyrki’s idea for a long time: “”No matter where I was Djing around the world, whether it was a Goth or metal night, I always spinned some 50’s rock’n’roll, The Cramps or The Stray Cats in the last part of the night – and drove everybody crazy and filled the dance floor. But it’s always the same records, there’s no new happening band.”

The band covered the iconic song “Bad Things” from the series “True Blood“, which also serves as the Eyes’ intro song on their shows, as well as “Black No. 1” from Type O Negative. Head on below to listen to excerpts of these songs:

Everyone has been reporting on this exciting new dark rockabilly band – from Blabbermouth to the horror webzine Bloody-Disgusting – way to go, fellas! They will showcase their tunes soon – The 69 Cats will perform at SXSW 2014 (March 11-16) in Austin, Texas.
