Ignition!...Show # 318

In 2001, Brian Setzer released an album titled Ignition! as The Brian Setzer '68 Comeback Special. The band was a trio featuring Brian Setzer on guitar/vocals, Mark Winchester on bass, and Bernie Dresel on drums. The bands name is an homage to a 1968 comeback television special by Elvis Presley. The music on this album is a return to his Rockabilly roots featuring high energy songs about cars, girls, guitars and late night excursions. Amongst the 17 track album there are cover songs and several Setzer originals. The album also features collaboration from Mike Himelstein, and Joe Strummer (of The Clash) on the song "Who Could Love This Car But Me?". The album also features a Spanish instrumental track "Malagueña" and the Punk tinged track "Get'Em On The Ropes". The project only released one album.
