The first incarnation of Thee Epileptic Hillbillys was created back in the 80s by founder members Billy Oxley and Paul Oxley. The band soon emerged to make their mark with a name that more people were familiar with – The Radiacs. That band was a core part of the Sheffield scene regularly playing the North’s equivalent of The Klub Foot – The Take Two.

The scene ebbed and flowed and Billy went on to play with many bands notably the Blue Devils, The Tritons and later his first band of the millennium Thee Chills. Meanwhile Paul is most well known for his part in The Krewmen alongside many other projects and session work.

After Billy wound up Thee Chills, he and Paul decided to get Thee Epileptic Hillbillys going again, drafting in Paul’s son Steve on drums. Steve had been playing in his own band Cosmic Razor and as he’d been bought up on a diet of psychobilly from a baby, he was the perfect addition. In 2010 they played their first gig at The Dove and Rainbow as part of Mosh & Go’s Psychobilly Sunday as support to Graveyard Johnnys.

They quickly became firm favourites in the UK and abroad with their cheeky mix of humour infused psychobilly, rockabilly and inbred hillbilly, bringing singalong anthems to the masses.

Sadly in 2012 Billy suffered major health problems which led to a short hiatus for the band, but they soon bounced back, this time with Steve taking over the role as bass player from his dad and Adam Steenson joining the band on drums. (Adam had previously played with Steve and The Raise, who were incidentally on the bill of that very first Epiletpic Hillbillys’ gig in 2010.)

Gigs came flooding in again and Epileptic Hillbillys were a worthy support for some of the scenes top bands such as The Sharks, King Kurt, Demented are Go & The Meteors; and also as a crowd-pulling headliner in their own rights playing many festivals home and abroad – Bedlam Breakout, Inkfest, Pineda Psychobilly Meeting to name a few.

During this time Epileptic Hillbillys have put out three cd albums – Tales from The Underworld, Insanity and Take 2 – and a limited edition vinyl 10” Atomic It’s The Bomb. All recorded with Alan Wilson and released on Western Star Records. A 12” vinyl version of Tales From The Underworld was also brought out by Crazy Love Records.

In 2017 Adam decided to hang up his sticks and new boy Paul Mummery got stuck straight in. (Paul has a background in psychobilly, punk and metal having played with Sin Kings, Boston Rats, Norm & The Nightmares, and The Gonads.) Their first gig at Kingston’s Fighting Cocks in July 2017 was a sell out and the band continue to be in high demand.

How to get the most from UK Psychobilly Gig Guide and Band Pages

Below are a few ways to make sure that you see posts from UK Psychobilly Gig Guide, the band pages that I run and any other band pages that you are interested in :

1. Bookmark this blog.
I generally update the Gig Guide once a week and the band pages as and when new gig dates or news comes in so keep checking back.

2. Like and Follow on Facebook
I share the Gig Guide and posts from the band pages that I run to my Facebook Page HERE  and my Facebook Profile HERE so give me a like or add me but follow the steps below.

Facebook algorithms mean that only a very small proportion of followers get to see posts, unless they interact with them. So, the more you like or comment, the more you are likely to see my posts in your newsfeed.  And the more you comment, the more other people will see them too, which helps me spread the word.

You can also opt in to “Get Notifications” from the Facebook Page (which means Facebook will tell you when I post) and “See First” (which allows you to chose which posts appear at the top of your newsfeed).

Desktop – “Like”, “Follow” and “Get Notifications”


Mobile – “Like” & “Follow”
Mobile – Then “Get Notifications” and “See First”

(This  applies to every Facebook Page that you “like and follow” be it a band, shop or blog so go ahead and like give a few previous posts some love ❤ )

3. WordPress
And of course, you can open an account even if you aren’t a blogger to follow me and others here on WordPress.

4. Submit gig info
If you are a promoter or in a band send in your listings and flyers. Check that it’s not already on there, then message me with your flyer AND the details in the format

“date – band name – venue”

Sorry but I don’t add written info from flyers or FB events you will need to send both if you want it on the written gig guide and flyer photo albums.  I can then copy and paste the info meaning it is correct.
