Caravans

Easy Money (VHS)

This is a typical live gig from the Caravans, filmed at the first " Night Of The Long Knives " at the Hummingbird Club in Birmingham in 1988. An exciting performance, backed by the accented use of two guitars and Mark Pennington´s skills with the double bass. This is simply splendid, wild Neorockabilly  performed by one of its best outfits. Highlights: That´s Where You Were Wrong, Gipsy Girl, More Whiskey and Easy Money.

 

Demented Are Go!

Call Of The Wired (VHS)

Spectacular gig from one of the most exciting rocking bands in the circuit. The gig of the masked men was filmed at the The Charlotte in Leicester back in 1994. Amongst the highlights included are Indie Chart hit single Holy Holy Jack and live favorites like PVC Chair and  Brand New Corpse. Other highlights are One Sharp Knife and Surf Ride To Oblivion. " Call Of The Wired " is also available together  with " Sick Sick Sick " on DVD. 

Sick Sick Sick (VHS)

This is  a real spectacular Demented Are Go live gig from the infamous Klub Foot, filmed back in 1987. It includes all their early classics and features the brilliant Dick Thomas on guitar and leopard man Sparky proves that he´s an ace with the microphone. This is without doubt one of the most impressive Psychobilly footage. Among the highlights are handful of Psychobilly anthems like Pervy In The Park or PVC chair. Other highlights are Rubber Buccaneer, Holy Hack Jack and the Transvestite Blues, that is titled as Midnight Blues on the sleeve of both, video cassette and DVD.

Very interesting DVD from one of the genre´s most interesting outfits.

King Kurt

Zulu Land (VHS)

Real spectacular sixty minute  gig  from one of the most exciting rocking bands that ever wrecked on the face of earth. It starts with a very special on stage drinking game (volunteer needed)  that ended in their classic opening tune, called Rockin Kurt. The concert was filmed in 1984 and includes its original lineup. The best of the best are: Destination Zululand, Wreck-A-Party-Rock, Horatio, Gather Your Limbs and Hound dog

 

Krewmen

Legend Of The Krewmen (DVD)

This is the first ever DVD that features one of the best Psychobilly acts from mid-80´s.

At the time The Krewmen were already reformed and lead singer Mark Cole was gone. Highlights: Jungle Rock, Bar Room Fantasy, Nightshift Blues, Swamp Club Ball and Do You Wanna Touch.

 

Plague Of The Dead (VHS)

Long Tall Texans

Blood Sweat & Beers / Wanted Alive (DVD)

The DVD includes two outstanding sets of one of the best Psychobilly live acts ever. "Blood Sweat & Beers " captures the Texans´ gig from the Night of The Long Knives, held in Birmingham in 1988. The second one contains the bands performance at the Billy’s Club in 1992. The footage gives you a great look at their early live performance power. Mixing good humor and pure rockabilly energy, this is one of the most brilliant and exciting live acts I´ve ever seen. Highlights: Off My Mind, Get Back Wet Back, Right First Time, Indians, Should I Stay Or Should I Go, Long Tall Texan and Breakaway

Meteors

Curtain Hell Raiser (DVD)

Wow. Cool menu navigation, all their anthems, exclusive interview footage and more bonus material. There´s just one hitch. The gig, filmed at Hobbits Niteclub, Weston Super Mare - 2004 ain´t the Meteors at their best. Loveless played, without the Meteors-typical energy and power. Sorry, but it´s really disappointing. Highlights: Maniac, I Don´t Worry About It, The Crazed and The Hills Have Eyes.

Graveyard Stomp (DVD)

This is the earliest video footage of the Psychobilly originators to be released to date. Filmed at The Gallery in Manchester, before the " Wreckin' Crew " album, The Meteors perform fourteen songs. The DVD is rounded off with the original promo video for Graveyard Stomp. This is a real essential recording from the early days of Psychobilly and it´s also very interesting to watch the Crazies going mental. Too bad , that the recording doesn´t include enough material for a DVD. With a little more bonus material, this DVD would have scored full points. Highlights: When A Stranger Calls, Psycho For Your Love, Get Off My Cloud and Graveyard Stomp.

Live At The Hellfire Club (VHS)

Recorded on 21 December 1983, "Live At The Hellfire Club " features all of the Meteors´ early classics and some f***ed up covers. Enthusiastic live performance from the most popular band of the Psychobilly circuit. The video is also available on DVD together with their neither the less  spectacular " Video Nasty ". Highlights: Graveyard Stomp, Blue Sunshine, I Don´t Worry About It, When a Stranger Calls and Mutant Rock

Video Nasty (VHS)

This video recording consists of two promo video clips, the band's performance from the "Night of the Long Knives" in 1988 and four tracks recorded live at  The Klub Foot in July 1987. Brilliant footage from the self-proclaimed  Kings Of  Psychobilly. This video is also available on DVD together with their " Live At The Hellfire Club " performance from 1983. Highlights: Get Off My Cloud, Psycho For Your Love, Blue Sunshine, Wrecking Crew and the promo video for their Rawhide single release.

Quakes

The Quakes (VHS)

This is the Quakes appearance at the "Night Of the Long Knives" Psychobilly festival at Birmingham's Hummingbird back in 1988. The band has just started in Europe and the video presents the original lineup. Fast, hard & raw Psychobilly backed by a solid stage performance. If you like The Quakes this is a must-have. Highlights: Pack Our Bags And Go, Psychobilly Jeckyl And Mr Hyde, I´m Evil and Fishnet Stockings.

 

Skitzo

Goin´Skitzo (VHS)

One of the more popular Psychobilly acts of the 80´s filmed live at the Klub Foot. Solid thirty minute footage, but not quite as essential like some other video material from the heyday of the Psychobilly era. Highlights:  Shipwreck Island, I´m Goin´Skitzo and Witching Hour.

 

Sting-rays

Come On Kid ! (VHS)

This is the Sting-rays performance from the " Nothin´ But Trash " all-day festival at Nottingham Palais in 1984. The video tape features 12 tracks and is also available with a different sleeve design. Psychobilly? Punk? I dont know, but this a spectacular gig from one of the genre´s most dubious spawns. Highlights: Math Of Trend, Come On Kid, Joe Strummer´s Wallet and Escalator.

Psycho Cats / The Best Of Blood On The Cats (DVD)

The DVD includes 31 tracks,  originally recorded between 1983 and 2002-covering nearly 20 years of rockin´ mayhem-, which were taken from the popular Blood On The Cats VHS series.

Featuring more than 30 clips from all-time greats The Meteors, Demented Are GO!, Guana Batz, Sharks, Frenzy and King Kurt to name a few and other Psychobilly related bands makes the DVD a solid investment. On the minus side are (poorly) synchronised  live clips and a lot of streams that were already included on other releases. Plus factors are previously unreleased stuff from  Highliners- Henry The Wasp, Frantic Flintstones- Ally Cat King , The Pharaohs- You´re On Your Own or the Surf Rats with Freddie´s Fingers and a fantastic cover design.. Other highlights are The Meteors- Go Buddy Go, Long Tall Texans- Mad About YouRadium Cats- Pink Hearse, King Kurt- Zulu Beat and Restless- Ice Cold.

Next are The Quakes- in their original line-up- presenting some stuff from their debut platter plus some US Rockabilly cover versions, followed by a no-nonsense performance from Skitzo, who had just released their second successful album.
