|On The Roof - Tin Roof Cats
Jungle Room JR 34001
The Tin Roof Cats from Bremen Germany were founded in 1998 and started as a classic rockabilly trio. Edgar, Mike and Marc stumbled into each other while sneakin' through the dark and dirty alleys of their hometown and decided to give the whole thang a try! All three of them already had made their own band experiences before and played in several combos like The Stablemen, Rumble On The Beach, The Mufflers and Tav Falco's Panther Burns. Ed also backed up Willie Lewis while he recorded an album together with the Stablemen and Marc, the Rumble On The Beach member, already hit the drums at live shows with Rosie Flores, Ben Hewitt and Ray Campi.
Nearly two years ago, Faxe joined the band as the second singer and rhythm guitar player. He already played together with the Boppin' Whoppers and the Mavericks. A little later the bassman Mike had left the band, because of his job and two new family members and shortly after that a cat, named Flo, crossed their ways and became their new bullfiddler!! Since then, the cats got new power and started rockin' and rollin' through Northern Germany and played towns like Berlin, Hamburg, Bremen, Oldenburg and Wilhelmshaven.
A new album is planned, which is already recorded and will appear in the middle of this year on the No.1 Rock'n'Roll and Rockabilly label, Rhythm Bomb Records.
