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.

"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".
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.
