This is the second release of the band and it is a killer what they boys have recorded here. Not necessary to mention the cover-tunes, all are not just ´covered´, but played in the K.B.´s fantastic own style. Good rockin, powerful rhythms with a lot of melody, all danceable. Compare them with the Blasters or the Planet Rockers.
Since the end of the 80's the Rock'n'Roll infecTED Quiffs from Southern Germany have been touring the world with their motto "Rock'n'Roll is still alive". Gigs and tours in Switzerland, Austria, France, Spain and Italy have been part of their bandlife for a long time now. Also Norway and Finland are not safe from the Boys. And even Great Britain welcomes them every time (Teddy Boy Weekender, Rockers Reunion, Ace Café, etc.).
Appearances on the radio and on TV, as well as songs for the soundtrack of the movie Roadrunner speak for themselves. Already since their beginnings they have been on stage together with well-known bands like Matchbox, Crazy Cavan etc.
The Kentucky Boys' wild stage show even gave them the opportunity to support German stars like Ted Herold or Truck Stop, and also to see a prison from the inside - but, of course, only to entertain the inmates.... But how to describe their style....?
They prefer British Rockabilly – Rock 'n' Roll, but you can't just put them into the Teddy Boy category. Their unconventional Kentucky Boys style ranges from Country to Rhythm & Blues including a lot of their own songs, some of which have already been covered., The own songs Wild Cruisin’ Cat, TEDS, No Name etc., but also covers like Jack The Ripper, Passenger or Teddy Boy are well-established parts of Record Hops all over the world. The Boys are influenced by Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee Lewis, Cash, Elvis ..........The Blasters, Fabulous Thunderbirds , George Thorogood........... and even the great Revival R 'n' R bands of the 70's.
An excessive way of life and their spontaneous and funny characters drive audiences crazy, everytime and everywhere where Rock 'n' Roll is still alive!
