THE WRECKIN' BALL

THE WRECKIN' BALL at Fiddlers Sat 15 February 2020 from 7pm-2am

The Wreckin Ball - Psychobilly Extravaganza

This is your chance to catch three of the original 1980’s Psychobilly acts, who just so happen to be three of the greatest live acts in the genre! These veterans will share the stage with ’Knocksville’ who have been shaking up the psychobilly scene in the last decade. 

If you’re a fan of the Psychobilly, you will almost certainly know these bands, and if you’re new to Psychobilly, you are in for a treat! Not only have Frenzy, Batmobile, and The Long Tall Texans recorded some of the most influential albums defining Psychobilly, their live performances really come alive!

THE BANDS:

Frenzy
As one of the original pioneers of Psychobilly, Frenzy remains among the most influential bands in the genre to this day. Fans attribute their long lived popularity to their high octane live show; known for delivering a potent balance of complex and melodic compositions all the way to straight-in-your-face insanity. With a back catalog spending four decades they are not afraid to tailor a set list full of the classics spiced up with new compositions. 

Batmobile
These Dutch Psychobilly veterans have been rocking stages all over the world with the same lineup since 1983. For over 3 decades they have headlined rockabilly and Psychobilly events from the US to Japan, Brazil to Russia, and of course all over Europe. Last year’s album release, “Brand New Blisters” proves that they still got it! And now the high powered trio is bringing their “B-Music” rock’n roll to Fiddlers! 

The Long Tall Texans
If you’re in doubt whether The Long Tall Texans are a great live act, you only have to take a listen to their record “Five Beans In The Wheel”. In recent years the Brighton trio has come full circle back to their roots as one of the original Psychobilly bands from the 1980’s. With several world tours they have proven that they master covers as well as their impressive catalog of original material. The Long Tall Texans remain an institution of British Psychobilly. 

Knocksville
Eastbourne’s dirtiest blues-infused 3-piece band has been rocking stages all over Europe since 2009. With the addition of Jason Walder on double-bass in late 2014, the band received an energy injection before recording their second studio album, simply titled VOLUME II. Their raw, new sound has been part of redefining Psychobilly in the last decade, proving that the genre is as relevant as ever.

Fiddlers Nightclub is a 450 capacity, family run venue in a small back street in Bedminster.

Although slightly off the beaten track, Fiddlers has an impeccable layout and exemplary sound system. Mostly standing, with a few chairs and tables, the sightlines to the stage are excellent and the well-stocked bar is easily accessed.

Fiddlers is an over 18s venue unless otherwise stated. Doors generally open at 8.30pm and although most acts end around midnight, the bar stays open till late.

Parking issues since the Resident Parking scheme are better as the council have suspended the Double yellows at the club from 8pm – 6am to allow customers to park near the venue.
 

 

 

N.B. Like most venues, The Fiddlers operates a 'Challenge 25' policy. If you are lucky enough to look Under 25, BRING ID as Entry will be refused and you are not necessarily entitled to a refund
