This footage hosts a typical, solid live gig from THE CARAVANS, filmed at the first " Night Of The Long Knives " at the Hummingbird Club in Birmingham in July 1988. The exciting performance, backed by the accented use of two guitars and Mark Pennington's skills with the double bass, includes nine tracks, many of the band's earliest fan favourites. This is simply furious, wild uptempo Neorockabilly performed by one of its best outfits. Easy Money has not been re-released on DVD format up to this day. Highlights: That's Where You Were Wrong, Gipsy Girl, More Whiskey and Easy Money.
This video release captures another spectacular performance from one of the most exciting bands and live performers of the Psycho-rockin' underground. The gig of the masked men, that includes Graeme Grant on slap bass and Lex Luther on guitar to back up Mark Phillips and Ant Thomas, was filmed at the Princess Charlotte in Leicester in March 1994. Amongst the highlights included on the fifty minutes offering are live favourites House Of Blood and Brand New Corpse as well as Psychobilly anthems Holy Hack Jack and PVC Chair. Other highlights are One Sharp Knife and Surf Ride To Oblivion. Call Of The Wired was re-released on DVD format together with their debut video Sick Sick Sick on Cherry Red Records in 2003.
This is a real spectacular DEMENTED ARE GO! live show , filmed by the famous Jettisoundz crew at the infamous Klub Foot in 1987. The set contains all their early classics and features the In Sickness & In Health lineup, including brilliant Dick Thomas on guitar, Ray Thompson on the doghouse bass, all on top of their form. This is without doubt one of the most impressive Psychobilly footage from the heyday of Psychobilly. The audio stream of the set is also available as audio 12'' vinyl on Sick Sick Sick compilation album. 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 Transvestite Blues, that is listed as Midnight Blues on the sleeve of both, video cassette and DVD releases.
The Frantic Flintstones Story is a very interesting DVD from one of the genre's most prolific outfits. The 5'' was out on Cherry Red in 2006 and not only contains two very early live shows of the FRANTIC FLINTSTONES, filmed at Dingwalls (1987) and Nuremberg (1990) respectively, but also a short documentary film about Chuck Harvey and the band entitled " Too Sweet To Die". The seven-track Live At Dingwalls is a gig featuring one of the band's earliest lineups with electric bass while the Nuremberg set was filmed during their Germany Tour in 1990 when Chuck and mates were already one of the genre's most popular outfits. The documentary captures a well-done interview with front man Chuck Harvey with additional samples of live footage. Highlights: Ragin' Sea, Monte Carlo Or Bust, Alley Cat King, Alcohol Buzz , Please Cool Baby and Necro Blues.
This is the first video
offering from arguably one of the most popular Psychobilly acts of all-time. The
video cassette covers two different early live shows of the BATZ. The gigs were
filmed at the Nottingham Palais (1984) and at London's Klub Foot (1986)
respectively. The Nottingham gig features the GUANA BATZ with Mick White
on electric bass and „Ricochet“ Ginger Meadham as replacement for the
arm-broken Diddle Turner on drums. The Klub Foot performance captures the
Held Down... At Last lineup, including Sam Sardi on the double
bass. The Jettisoundz classic offers fifteen tracks from one of the genre's
most-loved crowd pleasers. Highlights: King
Rat, Shake Your Money Maker, Cannibal
Run and Guana
This DVD contains the complete footage from the two classic Guana Batz video tapes.

Still Sweatin'... was recorded at the Klub Foot in 1986 and at the Nottingham Palais back in 1984. The DVD also includes seven previously unreleased tracks, that didn't make it on the original VHS offering. Anyway you cannot fail having one of the most influential Psychobilly bands performing thirty-three live stompers at their peak, all released on hi-quality DVD format. Highlights: Loan Shark, King Rat, Night Watch You´re My Baby and Guana Rock.
Real spectacular sixty minute set from one of the most exciting rocking bands that has ever wrecked the face of earth. The gig starts with one of the band's typical on-stage drinking game (volunteer needed!) before finally crossing over into their furious classic Rockin' Kurt. The show was filmed in 1983 and includes the Ooh WallahWallah lineup, sweating bodies, ridiculous quiffs and sheer rockin' power . The original VHS video affair; that captures perfectly the wild rockin' mayhem of one of the most entertaining outfits, was re-released on DVD format by Cherry Red Records in 2006. Pure excitement! The best of the best are Destination Zululand, Wreck-A-Party-Rock, Horatio, Gather Your Limbs and Hound dog.
This is the first ever DVD offering that features THE KREWMEN, another well-loved U.K. act from the first decade of Psychobilly. The 5'' disc includes a sixteen-track live performance at the Billy's club from 1989, which was originally out on VHS tape plus the five video clips, that were originally out to promote their Plague Of The Dead album. At the time of the production, the band's original Psychobilly lineup had been long gone , with Tony McMillan as the only hangover now joined by Phil Oxley and Piper on drums and slap bass respectively. Highlights: Jungle Rock, Bar Room Fantasy, Nightshift Blues, Swamp Club Ball and Do You Wanna Touch.
This is a five track VHS video tape from the Krewmen, originally released to promote the band in the U.S.A.. All tracks were filmed are sort of video clips, but aren't quite impressive and even Tin Tin, wearing sexy underwear, lashing on the guys doesn't make it any better . The tape includes the two cover versions of Steppin' Stone and Do You Wanna Touch plus three more songs from Plague of The Dead era. Highlights: Legend Of The Piper and Do You Wanna Touch.
The DVD includes two outstanding sets, that were originally out on VHS video format, from one of the scene's best-loved crowd pleasers. Blood Sweat & Beers captures the Texans' performance at the Night of The Long Knives alldayer, held in Birmingham in 1988 and includes ten firm favourites from that era. The second part of the DVD, Wanted Alive, contains sixteen tracks, a gig at the Billy’s Club, Stoke On Trent, filmed in 1992. The footage gives you a great idea about one of the best live acts, spreading the word of psychotic Rockabilly. Highlights: Off My Mind, Get Back Wet Back, Right First Time, Indians, Should I Stay Or Should I Go, Long Tall Texan and Breakaway.
This is arguably one of the most professional DVD releases, featuring Psychobilly footage, that has seen the light of day so far. The twenty-eight-track offering includes cool menu navigation, many of their anthems, exclusive interview footage and more bonus material. There's just one hitch. The gig, filmed at Hobbits Niteclub, Weston Super Mare - 2004 doesn't capture- for whatever reasons- THE METEORS power and electricity well. Highlights: Maniac, I Don't Worry About It, The Crazed and The Hills Have Eyes.
This is the oldest Psychobilly footage available up to this day. Long rumoured to be in existence , the gig performed at The Gallery in Manchester, dated back prior to the release of Wreckin' Crew album, the video was tracked down and official released by Raucous Records in 2003. The Meteors live performance includes fourteen songs and 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 quintessential for everybody who's interested in Psychobilly footage. There's just a small snag and that is that the running time is too short for today's standard of a DVD release. With a little more extras, this DVD would have scored full points. Highlights: When A Stranger Calls, Psycho For Your Love, Get Off My Cloud and Graveyard Stomp.
This video tape was originally recorded on December, the twenty-first 1983. Live At The Hellfire Club features many of THE METEORS' early classic originals and well-known furious cover versions.

The video is also available on DVD together with their neither less spectacular Video Nasty, including four more songs from this set. Highlights: Graveyard Stomp, Blue Sunshine, I Don´t Worry About It, When a Stranger Calls and Mutant Rock.

This is THE QUAKES appearance at the Night Of the Long Knives Psychobilly festival at Birmingham's Hummingbird venue in 1988. The band has just started their mission to infect Europe with its brand of U.S. Psychobilly and the VHS video features the lineup from their self-titled debut album. This is some furious, wild-rockin' and raw Psychobilly music, all backed by a solid stage performance. The ten-track affair is also available on the Psycho Mania compilation DVD, released by Cherry Red in 2006. Highlights: Pack Our Bags And Go, Psychobilly Jeckyl And Mr Hyde, I´m Evil and Fishnet Stockings.

The set hosts many fan favourites and captures well the RAYS' idea of Rock'n'Roll mayhem and their on-stage enigma. The set, which is also available on the 10'' vinyl Live & Raw, out on Raucous Records in 1994, has been denied a re-release on DVD format up to this day. Highlights: Math Of Trend, Come On Kid, Joe Strummer's Wallet and Escalator.

Headlined by the Psychobilly creators The Meteors, who are included with three songs, the tape offers top-notch outfits like The Long Tall Texans, Frantic Flintstones, Skitzo and The Quakes to name a few.

Featuring 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 some (poorly) synchronized live clips and a lot of streams that we have all seen before. Plus factors are some 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, the solid running time of the 5'', as well as another gorgeous cover design..
