The band Hillbilly Rawhide, originary from the city of Curitiba-PR, appeared in February of 2002, with the proposal to play a style made for a few in Brazil, mixing the roots of Country, Hillbilly, Western, Bluegrass, Boogie Woogie, Trucker' s Music, a lot of primitive Rock' n' Roll, and references of Psychobilly, what generated their own sound. Using rustic instruments like Banjo, Fiddle, Acoustic Guitar and Bass, Steel Guitar, and even a Cajón, the band started playing their own songs mixed with some versions of its bigger influences, such as Hank Williams (Sr., Jr. & III), Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, David Allan Coe, Johnny Paycheck, Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard, Wayne Hancock, The Meteors, Frantic Flintstones, AC/DC, Motörhead, among others… The objective of the group is to make a revival of this style, not so known in Brazil, but of basic importance in the history of world-wide music. Since the beginning the Hillbilly Rawhide has been playing in some bars, clubs and festivals around the south of the country, also making some shows in other states like Minas Gerais, and São Paulo. Currently they play at least 1 show per week in Curitiba, every wednesday in the bar of Eisenbahn beer in Curitiba: Cervejaria da Vila (Rua Mateus Leme, 2631) starting at 20:30hrs, in these presentations it is possible to feel the live energy of the group, that recently replaced the drums with the Cajón. The first recording of the band was made in October of 2005, a version of the song “Playschool Baby/' Round Mountain” from the English Psychobilly band: Frantic Flintstones. This recording will be part of the ‘Frantic Flintstones Tribute’, that is going to be released by the German label Red Five Records. In the end of 2005 they decided it was the time to record their first album, so they did 8 of their own songs and 5 versions.

The album, called: “Ramblin' Primitive and Outlaw”, first will be released by the German label Crazy Love Records, with worldwide distribution. That probably will help them organize their first European tour. In Brazil, the possibility of releasing the record is being analyzed, then the name of the label will be announced. While the full album is not released yet, the band had putted out an independent MCD with 2 tracks from the album: “High on the Road” and “White Lightning”, and the version of “Playschool Baby/' Round Mountain”, that will also be on the Frantic Flintstones Tribute. The release party of the “High on the Road” EP was on the last 16 of June 2006, in the city of Curitiba. Now the band has been playing around to spread their first material.
