This event takes place at The Georgian Theatre, Stockton
The Meteors started forty years ago as a reaction against the soft rockabilly that was popular at that time and they have now evolved to become the acknowledged “Kings of Psychobilly”.
Their audience has continually expanded, and includes not just psychobillies, but everybody from rockabillies and punks, to bikers, and most alternatives. They are the original creators of Psychobilly Music, and although they have spawned hundreds of imitations, The Meteors are proud to be the only pure Psychobilly band ever. Their songs are inspired by their personal experiences and interests; Horror, Perversion, and Death in general. They list their hobbies as motorbikes, Rock ‘n’ Roll, and burying the living; amongst their heroes are Michael Myers, Charles Manson and Mark Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon.
They have now made no less than official albums, and countless singles, not to mention dozens of compilations and re-issues. Many were made in their own recording studio, “In Heaven” a fully working pro studio used by ‘s of bands including some very famous household names and lead-man P. Paul Fenech has also released nine successful solo albums.
Their live show is wild and addictive, and has been seen in just about every country in the world, including Japan, several tours of America and every major city in Europe and Scandinavia even spending a sell out week in Israel.
They are supported by a flourishing fan base, with thousands of supporters worldwide, who are kept in touch by the website www.yendor.com which is updated daily with tours, band news and new merchandise, and there are several internet web sites devoted to them. And they receive daily emails from fans from the corners of the earth. Although there have been line-up changes over the years, (Paul Fenech being the only original member) the search for the perfect combination is now over.
