Drawn from experience with previous bands (The Shakers, Boz and the Bozmen), recordings (Wilko Johnson, Captain Drugbuster) and the example of an early hero (Chuck Berry), Hooker is a stripped down unit built to tour. He’s hit the high and low spots of France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Spain, New York and the U.K., been featured on the soundtrack of a rockabilly vampire film. This album contains unreleased, rare and alternate takes for the fans and collectors.     Audiences in France, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Spain, USA and the UK have all dug that ballroom twang with the Shakers, Polecats/Morrisey mainman Boz’s Bozmen and Southchurch rockers Rumble. Ex-Feelgood Wilko Johnson and Hemsby TV hero Captain Drugbuster turned on to the wild guitar for record dates as did film maker Lee ‚Burnin’ love‘ Sobel for his vampire soundtrack.
