Just over 30 years since The Meteors played at their now infamous gig at The Gallery on Peter St, Manchester, just down the road from that other infamous gig with a certain well-known punk band, Darkside Dancehall promotions are proud to announce the return to Manchester after many years absence …The Kings of Psychobilly, ‘The Meteors’!

The Meteors started over thirty years ago as a reaction against the soft rockabilly popular at the time and they have now evolved to become the acknowledged “Kings of Psychobilly”.

Their audience has continually expanded, and includes not just psychobilly’s, but everybody from rockabilly’s and punks, to bikers, scooterists, goths and most alternatives. They are the original creators of Psychobilly, 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. 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 40 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 100s of bands including some very famous household names and leadman Paul Fenech has also released six successful solo albums. (They have also featured in many films and numerous TV shows).

Their live show is wild and addictive, over 5,000 live shows in the band’s career and they have toured 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. Everybody is welcome at a Meteors show, and the band make a point that The Meteors Live is a political or religious free zone. People should come to enjoy the music and to wreck if they are brave enough! It’s wild and sweaty, but nobody gets seriously hurt.

Tickets for the gig are on sale now £15 Adv.

However we are able to offer a pair of tickets for the person who answers this fiendishly difficult question:

Q. Back in 1981 The Meteors sound tracked a film short made about them and their fans by Zestcrest Films – What was the film called?
