the most highly influential and recognisable names from the English
Eddie & The Hot Rods have enjoyed a career that has now
spanned nearly 40 years.
Although often categorised as one of the founding fathers of the punk
era, they were simply interested in playing loud, fast, in your face
Rock ‘n’ Roll rather than bad mouthing the Queen or fermenting
The energy and attitude certainly endeared them to the punks, but
the hard and fast style that made Eddie &
The Hot Rods one of the most exciting bands of the era has
never really dated or gone out of style.
Eddie & The Hot Rods were included
in the Mojo Top 100 of most influential bands and they are often cited
as an inspiration for some of the high profile new bands – young
Irish rockers, The Strypes being one
Thanks to this enduring appeal, the band still tour all over the world
as well as find time to write and record new material that now joins
their classic back catalogue.
Lead as ever by Barrie Masters, the line
up of Simon Bowley (drums) Dipster
(bass) Richard Holgarth (guitar) and
Chris Taylor (guitar) has been on the
road almost continuously for the last 10 years, serving up a high
energy mix of those classic Eddie & The
Hot Rods songs including “Teenage Depression”,
“Quit This Town”, “Life On The Line”, “Gloria”
and the Top Ten UK “Do Anything You Wanna Do”,
alongside newer songs taken from their last two studio albums, including
“Better Without You”, “Bad Time Again”
and “Why Should I Care”.
Recently, Eddie & The Hot Rods have
been seen out and about with Status Quo
on their 2012 arena tour and often with old friends like Nine
Below Zero, Dr Feelgood and From
The Jam and as well as regular trips to Europe, will embark
on their 5th headline USA tour in Oct 2014.
Whether it’s in an Arena, Theatre, Club or Festival, Eddie
& The Hot Rods always deliver a blisteringly energetic
blast of good old Rock ‘n’ Roll.
