Convicted killer Rockabillies:

Matt Waterhouse - Vox & rhythm guitar

Billy Jenkinson - Lead guitar

Kev Griffiths - Double Bass

Jack Smith - Drums

...Now free ,Alive & Dngerous , last seen in the Redditch area of the Midlands (Up North as us Southerners say)..Listened to these cats for a few months now, & im now covinced they are my kind a band..Raw , Wild & a little bit Mental (Like me)..The video's show how theses cats can get rockin with the best of em..The main thing I Like is they play songs that alot of bands dont seem to play anymore..( Johnny Burnette -Tear It Up , Carl Perkins - Honey Dont , Mac Curtis - If I had Me a Woman )..& if thats not wild enough , the lads alo write their own crazzy tracks ( One Of These Days , Love Struck Blues , Its All Over Now , Your Lovin Man )
The DeadShots were formed after lead guitarist Billy Jenkinson was playing in Essex with another band and happened to meet singer Matt at the gig. After a brief, drunken jam during the show, the two decided that they should form there own kick-ass, rockin' band. As luck would have it, Bill had heard tell of a strange creature with a talent for hitting things really hard with sticks and so Jack Smith was recruited into the band. Kev Griffiths is the oldest member so the rest of the lads are trying to get as much bass playing out of him before he retires or dies of old age.
. Although they have only been going for a short time they are set to open the Hemsby Rock n Roll weekender in October 2016 as well as supporting Darrel Higham in Birmingham in February.

The Ricardo's were formed in May 1992 by Dave Madgwick (Lead Vocals & Guitar), Graham (Benny) Benford (Double Bass & Vocals) and Mark James (Drums).
They landed one of their first gigs at an alldayer in Bromsgrove supporting Red, Hot & Blue and The Rough Diamonds and soon after other gigs started rolling in such as Hemsby and many more as the band grew a reputation for their powerful energetic performances and Dave and Benny's ability to write their own material.
It was soon after this that Howard from Raucous Records contacted the band and agreed to release a 45 to be recorded at Chris Cummings's (Riverside Trio) Riverside Studio in Blackpool, the single 'Whiplash' was
released on a various E.P along with the likes of The Crawdad's, the remainder of the recording session was licensed out to On The Hill records of Japan who also released an E.P.

Another E.P was released soon after followed by the bands debut LP a 10" titled 'The Riverside Sessions' to coincide with a tour of Scandinavia and a residency and tour of East Germany. The LP contained mainly the bands own material and sold out within a few months.
Soon afterwards the band released their second album titled 'Saturday Night On Earth' and were booked to play the first ever 'Rockabilly Rave'.
In 1999 the band started drifting apart and following different musical directions with Dave joining the Tennessee Rhythm Riders and Benny and Mark embarking on a few different projects.
After a chance meeting at Marks wedding in 2011, Dave, Benny and Mark were reunited again and were asked to reform by Jerry Chatabox for their 20th anniversary at the 'Rockabilly Rave' , other gigs in Spain followed,
'The Riverside Car Show' and 'The Screamin Festival' and a new E.P released on El Toro records and itunes.
The band have since played numerous weekenders and all dayers since and also another trip to East Germany to play at a Hot Rod show with The Rimshots.
Sadly in October 2014 Mark decided to leave the band due to personal reasons but Dave and Benny continued and were fortunate enough to add The Caezars drummer, Mikey Crowley to the ranks.
With plans and gigs for 2015 and beyond you may well catch The Ricardo's at a venue near you still going strong.

Highlights (selected) :
Supporting Chuck Berry at Cardiff Guildhall
Supporting Carl Perkins at The Town and Country Club with compere Stuart Coleman
Providing musical support & backing for Johnny Powers, Sonny Burgess (in Switzerland) and American female singer Josie Kruezer
Meeting Joe Strummer from The Clash and having a few beers and a chat :-)
And all the people, promoters, DJ's etc.. that have showed us much love and support over the years… A very big thank you !!!

The new album "Hot Summer Nights" includes 16 tracks. 3 of them are cover versions. There are different tones (or sides) of Rockabilly + couple Jump Blues songs and couple instrumentals.
    Album was    recorded from      20th Febr. 2014 to 25th April 2014 in the city (Kharkiv, Ukraine) on Driben records (the same studio as 2009, 2010 & 2011 albums)
As a special guest the band had Sammy (from Ruki 'v' Briuki) on sax in 4 tunes. According to Ozzy's opinion and taste (the drummer) - this album is the best our work since Don't Touch My Greasy Hair..

I gave Russ a call (Formally Russ Be Bop & The Road Runners) and he was up for it. Next, we needed a bass man.. Carl picked up the phone and said yes before I asked the question! 
When did we start.. Well, 2014 is our first year and we’ve got off to a flying start.
What plans have you got for 2015? Well, onwards and upwards, pretty much the same as this year hopefully.

Rockabilly.. Pure Un-adultarated Rockin at its Best! "JAKE CALYPSO & HIS RED HOT", new cd ,'FATHER & SONS'

 This Review has been a long time coming, But for myself,  it was worth the wait.
For at least four years or more since I started  Facebooks ,  "Wild Cat Rhythm & Bop " rockin page, I have been playing Tunes from who I consider one of the Most Authentic Rockabilly  bands, on to days,  scene...  Why its took this long for this band to be reconised, beats me. but now in 2014 for this band , is going to be Special. year, mark my words,.

  When you listen to the Band , You will agree that they could have come straight out of the Raw , early sounds that dominated the rockin 50's,,,They write their own songs & also do great covers & simply rock up a storm on stage..So with out, boring you with my opinion, Let The bands Lead singer/Guitarist (Herve) tell you in his own words, how it all began!

Let me introduce to you,
