The Flaming Sideburns, they are from Finland, Scandinavia and sound Rock'n'Roll + Psychobilly + Punk. This album is super dynamite and very happy! The songs have their own styles and distinctive tempos. I don't think there're bands in the mainstream as unique as The Flaming Sideburns

The Flaming Sideburns is a Garage punk/Garage rock revival band that was formed in Helsinki, Finland in 1995. Most of the members are Finnish, but lead vocalist Jorge Eduardo "Speedo" Martinez is an Argentine expatriate.

The Flaming Sideburns released their first single Close to Disaster in 1997 and soon signed to Danish label Bad Afro who released a compilation It's Time to Testify in 1999 and debut album Hallelujah Rock'n'Rollah in 2001.

Garage rock mayhem from Finland. Covers of The Wailers' "Out of Our Tree" and Litter's "Action Woman" set the tone. This is the Flaming Sideburns' first and best album. Uneven, to be sure, but the best stuff is really something. The two covers are great, but there are some real nice originals as well: "Ungrounded Confusion" and, of course, "Testify" ('You gotta testify/you gotta go to church/you gotta drink that wine/you gotta testify'). Also worth noting, is singer Eduardo Martinez's bloodcurdling scream (think Sonics), which hasn't been used to it's full potential on latter releases.
