ENGLISH

What can we say about this band? No other than it features three of Britain's most prominent and talented rock 'n' roll musicians, whose individual histories take in the best British Garage, Surf, Trash, Rock n Roll, Punk etc. bands of the last 20 years. Bandleader, guitarist and vocalist, Sir Bald has been described as 'The UK string king'(Kicks Magazine-Norton Records-US); in reference to his deranged Dick Dale-Link Wray surf guitar antics, He also plays with 'The Snags' (freaked out garage punk) and 'The Plus 4' (ska, rnb, funk etc. with Nass 'Big Boss Man' Bouzida). He is 'Britain's Best Kept Secret' according to Maximum RnR (USA). He has recently been playing with Holly Golightly (as heard on White Stripes 'Elephant' album). On slap bass is John 'Lard' Gibbs. He was a founding member of Scottish beat legends 'The Kaisers' and also plays with Holly Golightly and rhythm 'n' punk racketeers 'The Wildebeests'. Drummer, Bruce 'bash' Brand has been in more bands that you've had hot dinners! They include Milkshakes and Headcoats (both with Billy Childish), Masonics, Dutronc, Holly Golightly, Len Bright Combo (with Wreckless Eric), Dutronc, Clique and even played half the instruments on a Link Wray album. Needless to say their own brand of rockabilly, rock 'n' roll and blues is pretty darned hot!  Their set consists mainly of original compositions. However, if asked nicely and plied with beer they may play some Garage Punk, Link Wray, Frat Rock or Rock n Roll covers, probably swapping instruments and definitely having a bloody good laugh.  Influences include Gene Vincent, JohNny Burnette , Johnny Kidd, Link Wray, Benny Joy, Charlie Feathers, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, John Lee Hooker, Junior Parker and Johnny Cash.  

Recorded at the amazing Toe Rag Studios/ London by Sir Liam Watson

DEUTSCH

In dieser Band ist alles vereint was Rang und Namen in der Englischen Neo Garage Rockabilly und Beat Szene hat.. Allem voran SIR BALD DIDDLEY (the man with the golden guitar) der diese Truppe 1999 um sich formierte, eine Legende für sich mit zahlreichen Veröffentlichungen und Touren..  Dann JOHN GIBBS von der wohl besten Neo -Beat -Band ever, den KAISERS. Als dritter im Bund BRUCE BRAND, der wahrscheinlich in mehr Bands spielte als manch einer Haare auf dem Kopf hat. Bruce zählt als einer der Gründer der punk/beat Bewegung um 1977 herum in London... ...spielte bei den legendären Pop Rivets, Milkshakes und Headcoats (mit Billy Childish), Masonics, Holly Golightly, Len Bright Combo (mit Wreckless Eric), Dutronc, Clique, und auf einem Link Wray Album die Hälfte aller Instrumente.

Zusammen machen sie einen irrsinnigen Mix aus allem was sie lieben und kennen: Beat, Garage Rockabilly, Swamp Blues und so weiter...

Live eine Party Band par exelent. Denn wichtig ist: ROCK’N’ROLL muss Spass machen und

abgehen, und das meistens bis in die späte Nacht hinein.. Sicher, HipBone Slim ist LIVE-Musik; die aber auch auf Platte die entsprechende Atmosphäre schafft.

„Have Knees, will tremble“ist im Londoner TOE RAG Studio (Flaming Stars, White Stripes, etc.) aufgenommen worden. Als Gastmusiker sind u.a. Holly Golightly und Micky Hampshire vertreten...
