Cousin Harley, B'Hiki Bop

Here is Cousin Harley’s first all-instrumental recording! Band leader Paul Pigat and Cousin Harley fans alike have waited for B’Hiki Bop for a long time. Twelve original tracks (and one smokin’ cover) bring classic western swing, hotrod country, surf, psychobilly, lounge, and west coast jump blues all together. The CD is musically and sonically diverse, bristling with breaks that give each member of this powerhouse trio a chance to shine. Pigat creates a wide palate of tone by utilizing almost everything in his arsenal. From Gretschy twang to blistering Telecaster, not to mention a healthy dose of classic 8 string steel guitar and an unusual treatment of electric 12 string (a la western swing virtuoso Jimmy Bryant), this outing is unique in the Cousin Harley catalogue. A relentless jaunt through the highly creative musical mind of Paul Pigat, B'Hiki Bop will keep you on the edge of your seats.
