Tickets zu LONG TALL TEXANS Berlin
British trio Long Tall Texans make an exuberant mix of psychobilly, rockabilly, and eclectic punk. Formed in Brighton in 1985, the trio originally featured bassist/singer Mark Carew, guitarist Mark "Boggles" Denman, and drummer Anthony Theodotou.
The band initially built up a following playing high-energy live shows at the Brighton rockabilly venue The Klub Foot. Prior to their full-length, they also recorded two songs, "900 Miles" and "One More Time," for a local compilation, Sounds of the Southern Scene. In 1987, they released their debut full-length album, Sodbusters, on Razor Records. It garnered airplay on Radio 1 and helped boost their profile as they branched out into tours of Europe. Several more well-received albums followed including 1989's Five Beans in the Wheel and Saturnalia.
