Meteoric, Pulp-fiction-esque Rockers. Anyone of these tracks would not be out of place in a Quinten Tarantino movie...
Brilliant Neo-Rockabilly with some excellent twangy guitar...
NOTES
The Bop Shack Stompers formed in 1992. Introducing a strong and unique take on 1950's Rockabilly. With fresh musical and song writing talents they took the then 'Rockin' scene' by storm. Their gigs were always fueled with high octane energy and their ability to perform as well live as their recordings earnt them a good loyal following and strong reputation. Best known for their own original compositions such as Meteor, Excursion To Hell, Dangerous Blonde, Shake It Baby and a great cover version of a rare instrumental 'Stampede' by The Scarlets. After every gig and tour they left their mark in many countries including the UK, Germany, Holland, France and a 3 week tour of Scandinavia (Norway, finland and Sweden ). The band called it a day in the late 90's to persue other musical projects but have been known to do the occasional annual gig if public demand warrants it! The players who have graced (succumbed!) to the Bop Shack Stompers sound over the years are: Craig Shaw - Vocals, Lead/Rhythm Guitar/Harmonica/Song Writer. Paul Sheahan - Rhythm Guitar/Writer of Songs. Roger Van Niekerk - Drums. Gary Boller - Bass. Adam Wakefield - Bass. Malcom Chapman - Lead Guitar. Neal Scott - Bass. Wayne Hopkins - Rhythm Guitar/Bass. Mark 'Sprex' Spreckley - Drums. Gary Lynch - Drums. Lance Larson - Drums. Thanx fellas. (wot no girls!) 18 of the songs featured on the album were recorded at the now Legendary "Toe-Rag" Studios in East London back in 1994. The White Stripes recorded the "Elephant" album there. Also available is the original & rare 4 Track Vinyl EP "Meteor". Limited copies left. Enquires by email to: craig.shaw@yahoo.co.uk
