The album starts with a decent rockabilly song, authentic style, titled "Calamity Jane". Acoustic & electric guitar, cool slapping bass and nice background vocals. On track two, "She Is So Wild, the Jumpcats are getting a bit wilder too, hard hitting drums and fiery blues-influenced guitar licks make this a fantastic new original. On the title song "Where's My Quiff?" the band changes the pace again, still playing great rockabilly music of course.

"Let It Roll" has a bit of an 80s neo sound to it, adding to the variety on the album. "White Knuckle Ride" is a mix of rockabilly and rhythm & blues, mainly through the additional blues harp. A great song, and the changes in the tempo prevents you from getting the feeling that all songs sound kind of the same, a problem which unfortunatly occurs on many new rockabilly albums.

The Jumpcats carry on playing lots of great selfpenned rockabilly tracks, the uptempo "Speed It Up" being one of my favorites. They also added two cover songs, Billy Lee Riley's "Flying Saucers Rock 'n' Roll" and a wonderful rendition of Johnny Burnette's "Baby Blue Eyes". Gene Vincent's "Say Mama" is used as a ten second outro to finish off the album.

My compliments for the variations on this record, many different rhythms and tempos while still staying true to the original rockabilly sound. Very well done, I'm pretty sure you won't get bored listening this platter. Just one little remark, singer Pete's voice is a bit high pitched, a little more echo on the vocals might have been a good idea.
