EPILEPTIC-HILLBILLYS-PROMO-ALCOHOLIC-RATS-PSYCHOBILLY500

BIOGRAPHY

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 are currently taking bookings for 2018. New recording material in the pipeline too.

Stomping at the Klub Foot Fan Page

Whether you were there or not, there can’t be a psychobilly in the land that hasn’t heard of the legendary Klub Foot.  Veterans recall it with fond memories, and the new breed can only hope to gain some sort of feeling for the atmosphere by reading old posts on internet forums.

It has been hailed as the Mecca for all things psychobilly, and would entice 100s of pilgrims to venture into West London of a Saturday night.  A sea of coloured quiffs and bleached jeans would form a queue around Hammersmith Broadway, waiting for the doors to open at 7.30pm.

The building itself was called The Clarendon, a disused hotel or ballroom I believe.  Truth be told it was a dive but what more could a drunken youth culture want?  It had a large bar and a good sized hall with stage – sorted! The Klub Foot was held upstairs in what was rumoured to be a 600-800 capacity venue, although reports suggest many more attended.  On the ground level there was a bar, and downstairs was a small venue called Broadway that also hosted many a gig, including lots of Garage Trash and Mod bands.

The Klub Foot was the brainchild of promoter John Curd which started in 1982 featuring a line-up of punk bands.  By the mid 80s it was predominantly psychobilly but often had line-ups which crossed over the scenes and incorporated goth, rockabilly and garage trash.  It hailed headliners such as Guana Batz, The Meteors, Frenzy, Restless and Demented are Go, supported by many bands which are still the staple diet of psychobilly today – The Coffin Nails, Long Tall Texans, The Caravans and Frantic Flintstones to name a few.

It provided a central place for gigs to be held on a regular basis, a chance to meet with fellow psychos from all over the UK and a few from Europe too.  You could have a laugh, see some great bands, drink yourself silly, then burn off a few pounds by wrecking in one of the largest, sweatiest pits you have ever, or will ever be likely to see again. Oh and if you had any money left you could always stock up on a new band t-shirt on the way out.

Unfortunately The Klub Foot had to end in 1988 as the venue was being knocked down for the redevelopment of Hammersmith.  It put a real dampener on the scene for a good few years.  Although there were still gigs happening up and down the country, and by now it had really taken off in Europe too, The Klub Foot was the main stay in British psychobilly.

There have been many threads on internet forums in the past which all end up lost in internet archives.  In 2008 I set up a page on Myspace as a place for people to share their memories and photos – to develop a site that paid homage to the legendary Klub Foot to be enjoyed by old and young psychobillies the world over. As the internet progressed and everyone abandoned Myspace in favour of Facebook, I moved as much of it as I could over to the new page. There’s lots of photos of bands and punters so check them out.  I do not own rights to any of the photos and where possible have tried to credit them back to their original sender. The page has nothing to do with the original promoter.

Klub Foot Memories and Comments

Below I have listed some of the old comments left on the Stomping at the Klub Foot FACEBOOK  page and now defunct Myspace page dating back to 2008. Feel free to add your own memories or comments and I will update in time.

…………………………………………………………………………………………

SIMON: My very first band, Shark Bait played the Klubfoot around six times including one live recording (volume 5) and the ‘Goodbye Klubfoot’ series of concerts (if I remember correctly we invited the Klingonz along to one of these without asking the promotors, who hit the roof, but let the guys play).. we were all under 18 years old and we used to make the overnight trek to the venue on the Dublin-Holyhead ferry, then onto the London train, changing a few times and arriving at the venue around lunchtime 🙂  Shark Bait disbanded when lead singer Dave Finnegan landed a starring role in Sir Alan Parker’s motion picture ‘The Commitments’ (he played the psychopathic roadie, naturally enough)

 

GARY DAY: Great idea for a page, brilliant!!! I spent many nights there as a punter, Iv’e still got loads of my ticket stubs.
all the best,
Gaz

 

MIKE SPLIFFS: hey nice one jo.its mike from wigsville spliff i still got loads of the adverts from music press advertising klub foot gigs and photos etc. we prob played it 20 times and got loads of stories

 

GRAHAM DAY: I know the Prisoners played there several times but I’ve got no idea about the dates, sorry. It would’ve been between ’83 and ’85 I guess.
We used to play downstairs before we got a bit too popular and had to move upstairs,although I must admit I preferred the gigs downstairs.

Good luck collecting the memories, unfortunately mine’s a bit shot away.
Graham

 

BEN COOPER: Hi,  Thanx a million for the add.  What a great idea this page is. I will try and remember some Restless stories to put on the blog.  Rockin regards  Ben

 

STEVE WHITEHOUSE: We would love to be actively involved in this page as the Klubfoot holds many memories for me . I have loads of cool piccies of the great nights we spent up there…it was a special place ! When I get my shit together ( we are up to our eyes in it at the mo with last minute stuff for the American tour )I will make sure you get some stuff sent to you .

Congrats on a good idea !!

Best Frenzy Wishes   Steve Whitehouse

 

VERGE WALTON: Ohh I remember the old days – just about! I was at pretty much all the Klub Foot gigs. That’s me on the back cover of the first live Stompin’ album wearing the home made Guana Batz t-shirt with cut off sleeves and looking young and skinny.
I remember an early gig when the stage was at the opposite end to where it ended up. The Guana Batz played and announced it was going to be their last gig, I think Mick White was on electric bass then. They kept playing for ages as it was their ‘last gig’ and were superb.
I’m looking forward to seeing them again this Summer!  Good work, keep up the nostalgia,  Verge Walton

 

THE TALL BOYS: THANKS FOR THE ADD & GOOD LUCK WITH THE PAGE JO TALL BOYS

 

PHIL: hi Jo, great idea for the site
you are right we have aged well!!…a few of us were just old enough to go, although remember being told quite firmly by security not to go near the bar….or we were out!
anyway have a few flyers,tickets etc which I shall try and sort out for you, although me and technology don’t get on so stick with me on this one.
used to go up with a fair few from aylesbury/buckingham where I grew up, every now and again would get a mini bus/coach depending who was playing
sad to see it go although the boston arms was a good venue, cool to see things have really picked up with lots of gigs and great new bands as well as firm favourites who helped build the scene see ya soon
