"Rebel Beat" is the first documentary to capture America's oldest underground music scene...a scene that has survived 50 years thanks to diehard musicians, promoters and fans of a rebel rock you won't see on MTV...a scene hidden in Hollywood, but never caught on film. Until now. "Rebel Beat: The Story of LA Rockabilly" chronicles the story of L.A. rockabilly, from 50s cowboy rockers like Glen Glenn, revivalists like Ray Campi who invaded the '70s LA punk with his slappin' bass, to legends like Big Sandy and Dave Gonzales, to today's Barrio-Billy spicing up the mix with rockin' cumbias. The laid back cousin of psychobilly, LA Rockabilly is a low-fi, sexy culture with a passion for its retro roots, captured by "Rebel Beat" at car shows, swap meets, barbecues, barrio cafes and hidden juke joints - far from the Sunset Strip - before pulling up to the West Coast's biggest rockabilly party: Viva Las Vegas. "Rebel Beat" includes interviews with over 40 musicians, promoters, DJ's, sceneters, car customizers, and dancers and features rare archival photos, vintage TV clips, pinups and music, all highlighting the music, fashion, cars, pomps, ink and dance moves of LA Rockabilly.
See on üks rockabilly doc., mille ma ikka ja jälle taustaks peale panen, kui külalised saabuvad. Väga hea ülevaade Ameerika lääneranniku rockabillyst, sõna võtavad muuseas ka Glen Glenn, Ray Campi, Big Sandy, Dave Gonzales jpt.
