Paul Galaxy and the Galactix play Kactus Kate's in Cottonwood as a special engagement Oct. 10 at 8:30 p.m.
Formed in 1996, the high-powered Denver trio has been performing around the country in a non-stop frenzy.
Paul Galaxy hails from Youngstown, Ohio, and serves up a mix of screaming rockabilly and blazing instrumental surf guitar. "Mad Dog" Mike Minnick, from Camarillo, Calif., and Chris "Chopper" Cordoba, Denver, provide an intricate backbeat for Paul to put the hammer down on.
"We're not out here to change the world," says Paul Galaxy, "I sing about things I like ... women and cars."
And with songs titles like "Flamethrower," "Model A," "Crazy Love" and "Bad Girl," the point is very clear.
Wax your Hotrod and scrub those whitewalls. The boys are ready and will be giving it their all on stage for those brave souls who are willing to shed the shackles of an MTV-driven music business.
Rollin' Rock Records and Ronnie Weiser took a good look at Paul Galaxy and the Galactix and decided to add them to the label. In May the group recorded their second album, "Cross the Line." With radio play and the sales success of the first album, "Flamethrower," and the Rollin' Rock brand, the trio has high hopes of taking a few more steps into the growing market of Rockabilly and Roots music.
"Cross the Line" provides a broad range of musical styles for the adventurous listener and tantalizes them with tastes of surf, rockabilly and western grind. It is a sure bet to get the mouth watering and the feet tapping. Grease up.
