    Clarendon Ballroom Blitz CD

    Never-before-released great quality recordings featuring Batmobile, recorded live on stage at The Klub Foot - the legendary venue which became the centre of the Psychobilly scene.
    Batmobile appeared on Volume 3 of the Stompin' At The Klub Foot albums in 1986, and this album sees the first ever release of their entire performance from that night.

    Review by Frederick Turgis jumpingfrom6to6
    In 1986, three young boys from the Netherlands arrived in London to play on the stage of the Psychobilly Mecca, the now legendary Klub Foot. They played in front of hundreds of psychos who discovered that night one of the best, most beloved and most influential Psychobilly bands: Batmobile. For many years the tapes of this gig were considered lost or destroyed until someone found them and under the guidance of Alan Wilson (God or anyone else bless him) they were restored and saved. So here you have the whole set, 13 Batmobile classics from their mini-LP and "Bambooland", with a booming sound that does justice to the band energy and captures the excitement of their youth. Considering that Batmobile never released a live album (though they issued two live videos) this is definitely a must have. And the historical aspect of the whole thing will make you forgive the occasional out of tune and trembling voice. Keep in mind that was their first gig abroad, so you can imagine they were anxious. The package is completed with informative liner notes and interviews.
