The Wildkats The Wildkats Click here to hear them.
The band started about five years ago when "Big Al" and his band split up which was called Breathless at that time we had a bass player called Dave who used to stand in for Johnny Kid & the pirates in the 60's, we also had a drummer called Steve who was a college lecturer but was more of a 70's style drummer. We rocked around Liverpool a lot in the early days and started to get a good name but as all good things come to an end the lead singer and the drummer did not see eye to eye and the band decided to call it a day. Within three weeks and lots of itchy fingers later, the band reformed with a new line up, as Big Al the lead guitarist had had enough of all the bickering and lack of enthusiasm but Bob would not let it die, we ended up with Pete Barsdle from Manchester on lead guitar, Graham Brand from Ribchester (now in Vendettas) on Double Bass and Paul the Drummer from the Rhythmaires so we rocked around for twelve months having a good time. Until Paul the Drummer decided he wanted to leave to start his own project and in came Wayne our present Rock n Roll Drummer. Eventually the band split up "AGAIN". But Bob would not let it die again and his quiff started to fall out with the lack of Rock n Roll. So a phone call later and Big Al after a 12 month break returned to the band as lead guitarist and Dave his mate the Bass player came to. So nearly the original line up apart from the drummer, we rocked around again for quite a long while and unfortunately Dave the Bass player had rheumatism in his fingers had to hang up his bass after playing for 40 years "wot a guy". We still had gigs booked in for the coming months so we needed a bass player very soon and in stepped Geoff who played with the Winchesters for the last ten years with the nick name of "Horace". This had to go we call him "Big Slap Daddy" the granddad of the band and so the story ends for now as there are no arguments and we are all mates, with a bit of persistence Rock N Roll does live on.
