The Root Boys. Dig That Roots!
Mr. Och & His Root Boys is the project of Bohdan Ocheretyany, better known to the wide public as the drummer of the psychobilly team Mad Heads. But, as known, a few years ago Mad Heads turned into Mad Heads XL and started playing a bit different music. Therefore, in 2005, having recorded the album "Hope Is There" with them, Bohdan Ocheretyany left the group and then completely devoted himself to another project actually, Mr. Och & His Root Boys. Here Mr. Ocheretyany appears as the guitarist and vocalist, as well as plays the percussion. However, the thing is not who plays what, but how. Saying "well" means saying nothing, because this group plays really high-class. Just like this: simply and high-class, without superfluous tricks, but exactly with that amount of spices that make music extraordinarily expressive and delicious. Let better rockabilly experts judge style subtleties and they, by the way, never get tired of praising Mr. Och & His Root Boys for various aspects. While we see that so: when music rushes no definitions matter any longer. And this music touches, as only something real can hook. And we can do nothing but repeat after the musicians: dig that roots!

Ot Vinta. Pilotka. /digi-pack/. (The Forage Cap)


..there is so much drive that one can hardly believe its "acousticity". And one of the causes of such sound is the truly rich set of instruments used by the musicians during the recording (guitar, banjo, harmonica, kazoo, ukulele, flute, kozobass, xylophone, etc.). Very rich and bright just like always with "Ot Vinta"..

Ot Vinta. Potom i krovju. /limited, eco-pack/. (With Sweat and Blood)


To your attention the second release of the album in another (cardboard) packaging. ...And then you somehow suddenly realize that you listen to topical songs, poignant enough to feel reluctant to laugh but, at the same time, so fiery that, nevertheless, this does not destroy the mood...

Ot Vinta. Potom i krovju. (With Sweat and Blood)


First, everything is as ever loads of drive and salty humor, easy-going fun and tricky jibes. And then you somehow suddenly realize that you listen to topical songs, poignant enough to feel reluctant to laugh but, at the same time, so fiery that, nevertheless, this does not destroy the mood...

The Root Boys. On the Air.


...there is not a single song in the ordinary understanding on the album (that is, there are no vocals at all). But the music palette remained no less bright this is, ultimately, already a programmatic cocktail: in the atmosphere of the middle of the last century, melodies with characteristic features of country, rockabilly, blue-grass styles are mixed, with some elements of jazz and rock.

Mad Heads. Naked Flame.


It is well known fact that from times of the first rock and-roll half century has passed. But lads play with such a vigorous energy, a healthy and young pressure as if this wave has recently begun. And with the skill that is pleasant.

Mad Heads. Psycholula.


...for Ukraine this group and this album present a real classical music. Even today there are not so many groups, which are interested in real rockabilly, and the group Mad Heads is undoubtedly the best known among them...
