Bang Bang Bazooka is a Rockabilly band from Eindhoven, Rock City. These guys have been making great music since 1987 and have released four radical albums in the last 30 years! In the original formation, with Bartmann (Peter Pan Speedrock) on bass, BBB released two albums. Later on, Bartmann left the band as PPSR was taking up most of his time.
On the fourth album, “Red Hot & Horny” released in 2013, drummer Marc Burger (Liptease) and bassplayer Eric Haamers (Batmobile) were part of the line-up. Eric recently left BBB, to focus on Batmobile, as they have just released a brand new album (“Brand New Blisters”) for the first time in 20 years. As of now, Jesse van der Heijden (Liptease) is in charge of the bass lines.
Bang Bang Bazooka might just be the best Rockabilly band in Holland, and is without a doubt one of our favourite bands. We love this band so much, we asked them to play at our wedding back in 2011.
My favourite track on this album is the Buddy Holly cover ‘I’m Gonna Love You Too’ (1957). But ‘Cheetah Man’ and ‘The Blues That I Hate’ are also great songs!
‘I’m Gonna Love You Too’, ‘Cheetah Man’, ‘The Blues That I Hate’
If you find one, take it home! Even if it’s just for the Buddy Holly cover!
With Bartmann still slapping the bass, BBB released their second album in 1990. The album is called “True Rebel” and is dedicated to their loyal roadie Arno van de Wassenberg, who died in a car accident a year before.
If you’d ask me, the title track ‘True Rebel’ is one BBB’s best songs!
‘Frankenstein Rock’, ‘True Rebel’
You should buy this album, just to be able to rock out to ‘True Rebel’!
This is my favourite BBB album and features a lot of their best work, such as ‘I’m the Devil’, ‘Dragon Tattoo’ (a tattoo shop in Eindhoven, where Bang Bang Marcel worked in 2008) and the instrumental masterpiece ‘The Butcher’!
‘Burn Bobby Burn’, ‘Werewolf On The Prowl’, ‘The Butcher’
The best BBB record!
Red Hot and Horny… Just For You
This album is a little more Psychobilly than the previous three albums. This might be Batmobile’s Eric Haamers’ influence. The title track ‘Red Hot & Horny’ could have easily been written by Brian Setzer. Also the guitar parts and vocals are Setzer-worthy!
‘Pineda De Mar’, ‘Red Hot & Horny’, ‘The Devil In Me’
Almost as good as “Hell Yeah!!!”
