The Beatpack: are back and on State Records

Originally formed from the ashes of two small-town garage bands, The Beatpack initially peddled their primal wares from 1987 to 1991, terrorising audiences with their distinctive brand of violent rhythm & blues, intense hessian-sack-clad live shows and acres of hair. Recording an EP, a 45 and an LP for Germany's Screaming Apple Records, aided and abetted by Billy Childish on production duties, the group burned out in a blaze of glory and its members scattered to the four winds.

Fast forward 20 years and the 'Pack are back. Reunited in order to complete their mission to bring hip-shakin', feedback-screeching, blues-wailing garage-punk R&B to the masses, and featuring original members Simon Harvey (lead guitar), William Bourton Esq. (bass guitar) and Hugh Dellar (screaming and harmonica) alongside new boy Adrian Smith on rhythm and the inimitable Ian O'Sullivan on drums, the band have already played a pre-Purple Weekend night in Leon, Spain, The Berlin Beat Explosion and Le Beat Bespoke in London.

Their first recordings since 1991 unleash the dynamism and tremolo-laden suspense of ‘I'm Walkin’’ (with its echoes of Oz ’60s punkers The Masters Apprentices and Dutch tongue-tied long haired R&B merchants Q65) along with the crunchy garage of ‘Hey Senorita’ (‘Farmer John’ meets ‘125’ with lashes of timeless testosterone fuelled teen abandon).
