Johnny Storm Band
Rockin' Machine CD
Johnny Storm made a name for himself in the early 1980s as a youthful Rockabilly singer.
He released two albums, Flame On and For Greasy Kids Only, both now regarded genre classics, and found TV fame as a regular on ITVs Oh Boy! on which he made more than a dozen appearances.
When the Rockabilly days of the 80s passed, Johnny Storm quit the music biz until 2005 when his original drummer called and arranged a one-off reunion jam.
That get-together was so good that it would have been criminal to leave it there, so The Johnny Storm Band is now back on the road, gigging regularly, and it must be said, sounding better then ever. Youth may have been replaced by experience, but there's certainly no lack of energy here, and the band plays with at least the same enthusiasm as it did first time around.
Rockin' Machine was originally intended as a 5-track EP of all-new material, but when some highly collectible, previously unissued material dating from the early 1980s was discovered, the project turned into a mini-album with a couple of bonus tracks which Johnny Storm fans old and new will love.
