Bands

Insanity, insanity! Welcome back to DEMENTED ARE GO, “Welcome Back To Insanity Hall”! What is there to say about DEMENTED ARE GO that hasn’t already been said or invented? They are a band that has inflicted their twisted version of rock ‘n’ roll on the world for 3 decades, from the legendary Klub Foot via clubs, squats and festivals all over the world. They have built up a loyal following of Psychobillies, Punks, Goths, Geeks and Freaks who just can’t get enough of DAG’s sound. Always a live act not to be missed, their catalogue of releases over the years is proof that the band is always evolving and never restricted to one scene. The reason for the bands longevity and popularity is down to one man, Sparky. A one man riot who sold his soul for Rock‘n’Roll!
Uncompromising, unpredictable with a voice that sounds like he’s been gargling hot gravel he is instantly recognizable as one of rock ‘n’ rolls true leaders. How he has kept the band going for 30 years is beyond explanation.

HANCOX

"What does the word HANCOX mean to you? If you hadn’t been living under a rock for the last 30 years, you would know HANCOX is synonamous with the romping good time brought to you by Pip Hancox and his band of merry lads from the legenadary psycobilly originals, the Guana Batz. What you might not now, untill now, is......

HANCOX is the solo project created by Guana Batz front man, Pip Hancox during the summer of 2011.

While still enjoying great success singing for the legendry psychobilly band all over the globe, Englishman ,Pip along with members of his US Guana Batz line up, decided that an outlet for a slightly different style but still with same energy and excitement would be a great addition to his love for live performances and a chance for audiences to enjoy what this line-up can produce unrestrained by the mold formed many years before.

The band, all now located in Southern California, consist of Pip Hancox on vocals, longtime Guana Batz drummer/bass player Jonny Bowler on stand up bass, highly accomplished So Cal guitarist Gino Meregillano, and from the Billboard topping band Finch, Alex Pappas on drums.

With the many varied influences and backgrounds combined into one band, not to mention two members hailing from the London nightlife, while the other two cut their teeth in the So Cal music scene, a very unique and powerful sound and feel has been created and captured with their first release debuting in December 2012".

Oh, please not again! This is what people always tellin me when it comes to a return of a band who definitely called it a day. They only do it for money is what they say! They should stay away as promised, they say! I can´t understand these people. When Restless faded away back in 2006 and told the world they will never play together, it was one of the saddest days in my live. The only thing kept me up was the hope that they will return in a few years time. Not because they need the money, just because they need the applause, the thrilling feeling of an audience goin mad when Mark plays his guitar or Paul is slapping the bass. And so I tried hard to convince or even persuade them to come back and play all the songs which influenced so many of us in so many ways. When I´m thinking of the 80ies there are always a few songs in my mind and “Baby please don´t go” and “Long Black Shiny Car” are definitely two of ´em. For me personally Mr. Mark Harman is at least in the top three of guitar players in our scene!

THE BLUE CATS

 

Formed in 1980, THE BLUE CATS released their seminal FIGHT BACK album and single WILD NIGHT in 1981. Their fusion of rockabilly and new wave was, and still is the prime example of what became known as neo-rockabilly.In the mid 1980’s they started working on the G-MEN project and songs that would form the basis of the next stage on their journey, BELTANE FIRE. After a hugely successful year on the alternative London club Circuit, they signed to Sony Music in late 1984 and in 1985 recorded album DIFFERENT BREED.In 1992 they recorded again as THE BLUE CATS, and the result was the critically acclaimed album THE TUNNEL. After spending another year on the road together they decided to go their separate ways to pursue individual projects.Early in 2011 Steve Whitehouse was recruited on double bass and the band hit the road again for an extremely successful run of European dates. The huge success of THE BLUE CATS 3rd period is now to be celebrated with a new album BEST DAWN YETon Bluelight Records. Over the last two
years or so, the band has been writing together again and now believes they have together a superb collection of the best songs they have ever worked on, as the first single BILLY RUFFIANS pulled from the new album clearly demonstrates.
Simultaneously with the new album Bluelight Recordswill re-release the classic status album THE TUNNEL from 1992. The new release is expanded with four bonus tracks taken from the G-MEN E.P. and all recordings on the CD are remastered from the original master tapes.

After a triumphant return, the MadDog has gone from strength to strength. Having surrounded himself with musicians considered to be among the best in the scene, and the release of the most anticipated album in decades, Ultra Violence, he has caused many a conversation in all the forums and newsgroups, as he headlined all the major festivals throughout Europe.
His stage presence is more mental than back in the mid 80s’, and hearing him sing the much requested classics from the era that started it all, you can’t help but want to be a part of the wreckin! He STILL replies personally to all messages and comments on Myspace, and it begs the question “Where does all the time come from?”.
He still rarely comments on all the negative publicity surrounding his leaving the original band that made him the most famous Psychobilly frontman ever, and this has stood him in good stead with his many followers. He is set to be a major visitor to the European scene throughout 2009, so if you EVER get the chance to catch a show, DON’T MISS IT!
