Just wanted to throw this in;

Zombie Ghost Train split up about 2 months ago. Or are taking a break at least. Whatever they're doing they played a farewell gig at the Annandale back in April or May.

I'll bring some tasty licks to the Sydney show.

Oz in canada
Seen the cats twice in Adelaide at the bridgeway and here in vancouver last year touring with zz top.

The exciting news for the aussie buddies back home, especially being at the thebi theatre, if my memory serves me right, the first concert was held at the Thebi theatre in 81, just around the corner from home in oz, where we torrensville boys grew up in the neighbourhood.

Come on Adelaide lets sell out the concert,
cheers
Steve

[Hey Chevvy5684,
I went last nite, around about 11 30 and brought pizzas for Lucky 7 & and Hoodoo Voodoo Dolls. Sat outside with the guys from Lucky 7 and had dinner with them. Thai Pumpkin soup and Salt and Pepper calamari, if ya go next time eat there, it's good! I kept an eye out for ya, but don't know what you look like! Couldn't see any Wild Cat heads with crowns on top of them! hahaha!!
When Lucky 7 got up and did an encore with Hoodoo, I was standing next to Dean the guitar player from lucky 7, infact when they did Johnny B Goode, he asked me if I wanted to get up and play. Should of! I don't know if ya know the guys from Lucky 7, but really great guys that appreciate their fans. Why didn't ya come up and introduce yourself? Maybe ya left by then. I heard alot of people left, maybe not into the Psychobilly scene, shame cause the Voodoo are 16-18 year olds with ALOT of talent.
Cheers Pete.

Hey Pete yeah I was there but may have just left as you got there, I really enjoyed Lucky 7.....um......voodoo were good too really appreciate there talent but not right into the psychobilly yet. I have seen Zombie Ghost Train a couple of years back at the Hwy Inn and liked them.

And as for the wild cat head......I'd love the hair style but aint got much left. hahaha

I thought you were actaully playing in lucky 7 coz I asked the sound guy who Pete was and he pointed to the bass player. Then it sorta didnt make sense but I went up to him after their second set anyway and said hello.

We had friends from out Barossa way come back to our place for a few more sherbets hence why we left around 11.30.....and had to work the next day but that wasnt the main reason for leavin a bit earlier than expected.

Anyways I bought 4 tickets for thebby.....and may go to brissy.....I got the rip it up newspaper and seen the full page add in there....and got a copy of the melb hearld last week and had the full interview and pics with chris cheney.

Will catch you again some time....so what band do you play in?????

Hey Chevvy5684,
That's cool man. Pete the bass player and myself had a few scotchs together over the years. You would have found him very approachable, like the rest of the band I guess.
Friends from the Barossa? Nice, good wine connections!! hahaha!
Our band is called "Salvy and the Hired Help". New to the scene, even though we've all played in other bands before and at the moment. August 16th should be going off!! Hoodoo Voodoo Dolls playing that night as well. Anniversary of Elvis' death!!
Cheers Pete.

Small world you say??
Our singer Salvy was his next door neighbour!!! Ask him if he remembers him.
I remember Bill because with his Greek surname they had to put his name from his chest to his shoulder on his soccer jacket!!
You might know Jason with the Plymouth and big Wally, cousin with my good mate Nino.
See ya at Adel Bowls August 16? I'm sure Bill was there last time when Lucky 7 played.
Cheers Pete.

Hey Steve,
Ange I'm assuming is Inglese?
Jason sings and plays trumpet in Lucky 7, Salvy used to live next door to Bill and sang in Funky Monks, Funk Me, Chain Winder and Stolen Waters. He used to have VC Valiant and a Torana.
Yep, Wally still has the Plymouth.
Like a dumb arse, I realized you're in Canada after I posted if you're coming to the gig!
Might see Bill in August, if I do I'll say hello, no doubt him and Salv will have some catching up to do.
Cheers Pete.

I know you can't believe everything you read, like the line that says the European tour will start the first week in July. But I am particularly intrigued by the writer's assertion that while there is no album to promote on this Aussie tour, the album will come out after the tour. If only...

Hi Rick.
.....Unless they are talking about a highlights album from the Aussie shows?
From just reading the set list of the recent SC gig, i'd guess that although there are a couple of
more unusual songs, there's no brand new ones.
Anyway, surely they would be promoting an album on the tour! Sounds like the press have got it
wrong...again!

Sorry i haven't been on here much guys. My site has kind of taken off and i've been neglecting the rest of the internet altogether. Great to see so much excitement regarding the Stray Cats and Setzer tours.

Hey Steve,
Yeah Satelites still playing, Billy Bob (guitar) has left and joined The Streamliners. Steve(bass) and Belinda(vocals) are married and expecting their first child I believe very soon, so the band is on a short break. Jad (drums) filled in for The Saucermen the last couple of shows. The Satelites are still Adelaide's number 1 Rockabilly band.
Thinking about it, we've probably met previousily some where. I heard that Bill is coming on August 16, Salv would love to catch up with him.
Cheers Pete.
