BOMBERS AWAY

Since forming 11 years ago, The Delta Bombers have electrified audiences with their intoxicating fusion of 50s rock’n’roll, swamp blues and country. We spoke to their co-founder Andrew Himmler

” I’m not even sure if I can describe our music and I guess that’s a good thing; we’re a meat grinder of lots of old American music”

Formed in 2008 – and delivering from the get-go a rock-solid mix of swampy blues, country and rockabilly with a contemporary twist – this four-piece quickly rose to become one of the best bands out of Las Vegas, Nevada. Fulfilling their provocative promise as providers of “Rock and roll in all its raunchy, dirty, and wild goodness”, they proved a must-see, must-hear experience of substance over style. With an impressive 32K followers on Facebook, to date the wonderfully wild title track Wolf from their 2012 album has garnered 1,073,918 YouTube views. On the strength of this second LP, the band fast gained momentum and began headlining in Europe. In little over a decade, they’ve clocked up gigs in a staggering 26 countries and counting, and latterly, with bands like Reverend Horton Heat, The Blasters and the Legendary Shack Shakers, have covered every corner of the USA.

About Vintage Rock

In this issue of Vintage Rock we reveal our definitive Top 100 Rockabilly Tracks from classics of the genre through to lesser-known gems in the catalogue. With Halloween upon us, this issue we brush aside the cobwebs to step inside the spooky world of ghoul-rock pioneer Screamin' Jay Hawkins, and David West navigates his way through the zombie-loving ranks of Psychobilly with the help of The Sharks' frontman Alan Wilson and Dutch psychobilly giants Batmobile. 60 years on from it's release, Randy Fox investigates this month's classic album, Bo Diddley's big-selling second offering Go Bo Diddley, we hear from 21st century roots rockers The Delta Bombers who discuss their new material, and David Burke looks into the fascinating story of Hank Ballard, the rhythm and blues mastermind behind The Twist. Much more inside too, including the Jive Aces' Summertime Swing live, news – including an upcoming Netflix animation with Elvis cast as a spy, and all of the latest music reviewed! Enjoy the issue!
