Wild wild Rockin' from the 50's, The Megatons

The megatons was created in Paris France in 2009 with the ambition to regain the wild sound of the wild rockin' bands that prevailed in the northern United States in the late 1950s. The adventure is attempted by men of experience, all real rockers and musicians since the 80's. In France in the early eighties while everybody was into rockabilly, some french young parisians known as the Jokers revitalized that forgotten style and in 2009 two of the deceased former band,bassist Stephane saxophonist Jérôme decided to start a new adventure with Didac on guitar, Lulu on drums and Charlie on guitar and vocals.

Influenced by the world of American hot rod 1950 made by coachbuilders such as Barris brothers, Darryl Starbird, Alexander brothers, Ed Roth and many others, their compositions talk abou,t stories of unhappy heart, detective stories, brief counter, epics mechanical ... They are traditionally mixed in concert with vitamin times rock 'n' roll in the late 1950s and early 60s. We are no longer in 1959 but the Megatons savagery still sounds as powerful in today's context of a bland musical landscape. Fact: Rock'n'Roll is fresher and more revolutionary than ever and Megatons are his weapons!
