Charlie Megira & The Bet She'an Valley Hillbillies

Charlie Megira & The Bet She'an Valley Hillbillies ‎– The End Of Teenage (Cassette Version)

The bastard love child of Elvis and Lux Interior, Israeli guitarist Charlie Megira brewed a heady amalgam of ’50s trash rock, surf-y tremolo, and reverb-drenched goth during his all-too-brief 44 trips around the sun. He recorded seven albums worth of material in 15 years, primarily issued on CD-R, most of which is now unreadable or in a landfill. Armed with only an Eko guitar, a black tuxedo, and his signature wrap-around shades, Charlie Megira was a mold-breaking artist who disintegrated while we were all staring at our phones.

Recorded in Berlin and released by the Guitars and Bongos label on cassette for Charlie’s first tour of the U.S., this stripped down version of The Bet She'an Valley Hillbillies End of Teenage is a return the rockabilly and surf forms that Megira explored on his 2000 debut The Abtomatic Miesterzinger Mambo Chic
