Diesel PunX

Cherry Poppin’ Daddies with songs like Zoot Suit Riot, Dr. Bones, and Cherry Poppin’ Daddy Strut long ago cemented themselves as one the great dieselpunk bands. Recently the band released the second single from their upcoming new record, Bigger Life. Their new song is titled Diesel PunX.

In their newsletter, singer-songwriter for the band Steve Perry describes it as “a bit of slap bass Psychobilly, a hint of swing, elements of the Clash, and sarcastic, snotty moments of Music Hall tack hammer piano; a harsh, buzzy stew that hopefully impels listeners to sense the working class toughness of the characters.”

Diesel Punx is pure Cherry Poppin’ Daddies and I love it. I can’t think of a better tune than this one to carry the name Diesel PunX.

You can download the song from their website. Their new album, Bigger Life, is scheduled for release on June 14, 2019, and is available for pre-order now.
