about

Phoenix rockabilly band Whiskey Kiss flouts tradition in a genre typically known for clinging to its roots. In their debut album Dangerous One, they break free from the three-chord stereotype with a record heavy on roots, but light on convention. "They're gonna surprise you. They're gonna come out of left field, they're gonna jab you, and they're gonna tell you what's up,” says Tiny, host of popular podcast Friction in the Static. With trumpet, pop melodies, and a range far beyond what you’d expect for a rockabilly band, Whiskey Kiss pushes the boundaries with Dangerous One.

The album kicks off with the title track- almost. The Dangerous One theme is a sultry sendoff, reminiscent of James Bond films, and then the follow-up track completes the sixties surf/spy feel. Just to show they can do tradition, You Upset Me is a rocking cover of an obscure Diana Lee tune, though they can’t help but throw in a little piano and harmonica to spice things up. Hot Toddy (Love Sick) is a sweaty, in-your-face number with a popping chorus, and Take the Long Way Down is the perfect sexy cool down. La Trompeta is a mariachi Devil Went Down to Georgia, and the sinister finale Who Let You In? really shows off what this band can do.

Track Name: I Wanna Rock and Roll
I don’t want to go to work, I don’t want to go to school
Got me a man, but he treats me mean and cruel
Everybody says that’s the way it’s supposed to be
I don’t know what’s wrong with me

Chorus
I want to rock, yeah yeah yeah
I want to roll, ooh ooh ooh
I want to jump, I want to jive
I want to know that I’m alive
I want to yeah, ooh, yeah, ooh rock and roll

They say there’s a time for work, there’s a time for play
A time to get down but it’s never today
Every time I knock they say you can’t come in
I keep banging till you let me in

Chorus

I feel like I am begging on my knees
Won’t somebody help me now?
Oooh weee

They won’t let me have a drink, let me have a ball
They never, never, never want no fun at all
I don’t know what I’m gonna do
I go crazy when I can’t see you

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Hot Toddy (Love Sick)
He’s so sorry, I’m so broke
He said, “Call me back baby”
Man I need a smoke
He said, “One more chance, I’m on my knees”
One more drink don’t make me say please
So far gone, I can’t say no
Oh no…

Chorus
I’m love sick, love sick
I’m burning up
I’m love sick, love sick
Oh baby yeah
I’m love sick, love sick
Don’t ya know
I’m love sick, love sick
On the floor
Somebody help me cure this disease
I’ve got shivers in my body, I need a hot toddy

I’m so mad, but he’s too good
He said, “Call me back baby”
I know what I should
He said, “One more chance, I’m at your door”
Fill me up honey, oh more more more
So far gone, I can’t say no
Oh no…

Chorus

He’s so crazy, I’m so mean
Put the salt on the rim, a shot of Jim Beam
He said, “I’m coming over, you let me in”
Give me sugar and spice, a tonic and gin
So far gone, I can’t say no
Oh no…

Chorus

He’s so sorry, I’m so broke
He said, “Call me back baby”
Man I need a smoke
He said, “One more chance, I’m on my knees”
One more drink don’t make me say please
So far gone, I can’t say no
Oh no…

Chorus
Track Name: Take the Long Way Down
Chorus
Take the long way down
Take the long way down
You want to make love to me?
Take the long way down

This town, this town will eat you alive
When you’ve had enough boy, jump in the car and drive
Honey slow down, Take a breath and ride
Put your foot on the brakes, baby take your time

Chorus

Honey go round, ain’t no crime
Better hold on tight, you wanna stay alive
Baby don’t drown, take a breath and dive
I’ll let you take the wheel, you let me be your guide

Chorus

Chorus

Take the long way down
Take the long way down
Track Name: Two-Timin' Two Step
Well he took me out dancing on a Saturday night
He pulled me close and he held me tight
Out through a window I saw a friend
So I stepped out when I should’a stayed in
While I was out chattin unknown to me
He was smootching in the corner with Becky Lee

Chorus
He did the two-timin two step: two girls
Two timin two step, two whirls
Two timin two step: two lies
Two timin two step: not wise
That’s the last time baby you’re gonna get a dance with me

When I came back he was sweet as could be
I never once noticed pretty Becky Lee
He spun me round, turned me out on the floor
But pretty soon he was watching that door
When Becky came in he was out like a light
Shoulda known right then that somethin ain’t right

Chorus

When he came back he was talking so fast
Miss Becky Lee almost walked right past
We caught him in the corner, said “What’s goin on?”
He said, “Sorry girls, but I gotta get gone”
We said, “Wait one minute, you ain’t goin nowhere.
You better stop your jiving and say your prayers”

Chorus

Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: Rockabilly Boy
There’re boys who hang all over, never leave you alone
There’re boys who are too clean, wear too much cologne
There’re boys who will lie, flirt with your friends
There’re boys who cheat, who always pretend
There’re boys who tease, boys who taunt
Oh no that’s not the kinda man I want

Chorus
I want a cool and mean, bopping kinda boy
I want a dark and tall, rocking kinda boy
I want a slicked-back hair, crusing kinda boy
I want a cold, dark stare, brusing kinda boy
Man, I know what I want
No need to play coy
Ooh! I want a rockabilly boy!

Some boys will call you baby while they’re home with their wife
Some boys will tear you down say you’re wasting your life
Some boys will watch the game while you’re going to work
Some boys will spend your money while they’re wearing a smirk
Some boys will tease, boys will taunt
You know that’s not the kind of man I want

Chorus

There’re boys who like to dance on a Friday night
There’re boys who still know how to treat a girl right
There’re boys who hold the door ‘fore you jump in the car
There’re boys who’ll buy you drinks while you’re out at the bar
There’re boys who know how to get a girl hot
Yeah that’s just the kind of man I want

Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: The Boy Who Cried Wolf
You lied to me, said you were true
You lied to me, what could I do?
You lied to me, had to play rough
You lied to me, you’re the boy who cried wolf
Ow-wooooo
Ow-wooooo

You lied to me, I was a fool
You lied to me, evil and cruel
You lied to me, I called your bluff
You lied to me, you’re the boy who cried wolf
Ow-wooooo
Ow-wooooo

You lied to me, never again
You lied to me, I won’t pretend
You lied to me, a huff and a puff
You lied to me, you’re the boy who cried wolf
Ow-wooooo
Ow-wooooo
Ow-wooooo
Ow-wooooo Ow Ow Owwwwww!
Track Name: Daddy Don't Know
Chorus
What Daddy don’t know
Oh oh oh
What Daddy don’t know
What Daddy don’t know
Ain’t gonna do him no harm

Daddy said listen girl you better pay attention
Those boys will be pushing you to give ‘em some affection
Keep your distance, don’t go
Take it honey real slow
Save it for the man that’s got time to make the love grow
Smiled back with my fingers crossed beneath my coat
He’s waiting out back, but Daddy don’t know

Chorus

Johnny’s at my window and he’s waiting for the signal
Climbing down the chimney, it almost makes me giggle
Keep it on the down low
We start kissing real slow
Watching time so I make it back before my pop knows
Smiled as Johnny drives us off to see the show
He’s mine oh mine, but daddy don’t know

Chorus

Chorus
Chorus
Track Name: La Trompeta
Well he drove south of the border line, with la jura on his heels
He raced across the desert sand hoping he might make a deal
But the devil knows just what he done, and the devil he ain’t no fool
La trompeta he drove anyway, hoping he might change the rules

Now a trumpet man’s no sinner, but he’s sure as hell no saint
And when Satan’s breathing down his neck, un tonto what he ain’t
He knows when the time is right to fold his cards and go
When the devil says, “Son play you’re horn” you blow that trumpet blow

Chorus
And he would blow, yeah, blow that trumpet blow
Cause the devil wants to take him to a place that he don’t want to go
Yeah he would blow, yeah, blow that trumpet blow
And he keeps on playing on
Down in Mexico

Well he knew his time was running out con los hombres de el cartel
And a desperate man will take a fight even right to the gates of hell
But every man must pay his due before his day is done
And the cost will rise as you try to hide, ‘till there’s nowhere left to run

Chorus

Yeah he would blow
Oh he would blow
Yeah blow
Oh blow that trumpet blow
Blow that trumpet blow
Bloooooow!
Track Name: Who Let You In?
I boarded up my shutters, And I stopped taking your call
I couldn’t take no chances, Tore my phone right out the wall
I paid a man in cigarettes, to barricade the door
He promised me, he promised me, you won’t be back no more
I put away the silver and I locked up all the gin
My fortune teller told me that I wouldn’t see you again

Well my lights are all turned way down low
I stopped seeing my friends
So who let you in?

I covered up the windows and I sealed each one up tight
There is no exit anymore, I don’t even come out at night
I locked the door, the gate, the car, then I swallowed down the key
I blocked each route so I would know you could not follow me
I shoveled deep beneath the ground, and I laid myself down low
I found the only hideaway I knew you could not go

Well the lights have all gone out tonight
This should have been the end
So who let you in?
Who let you in?
