- Catalog Number: GROOMETE010
- Availability: In Stock
The Rhythm Checkers were an exceptional
beat group playing a raw mixture of rhythm and blues and rock and roll
with a wild garage attitude. Maybe we can call them the european Sonics.
Formed by musicians native from France, Germany and Holland with Roland
“Bouboule” Bauer (vocal), the regretted Robby Sterheim (lead guitar)
Eddy Van Nelfen (rhythm guitar), Kurth Horbach (bass) later replaced by
Dany Gentner and Norbert Holweck (drums), they set the stage on fire
during their shows in France between the years 1966 and 1967.
It is in Strasbourg where The Rhythm Checkers release their first EP
with their powerful composition « Cause i need you » which is a real
classic of European garage- rock. Their second EP is a unique document
of their stage savageness thanks to these recordings captured live when
they opened for Chuck Berry in Paris on February 1967, it’s amazing how
these guys made it live....they make my wig jump listening on record, I
can’t imagine what could I do if I were there!!!!
The eight mythical tracks of their two rare records are present on this
LP, and as bonus, both sides of their single recorded in 1972 during
the reformation of the group under the name of Checkers in the prog pop
style of the time.
The record comes with an insert with all the history and never published
photos of the band, both in English and French. Limited release of 500
ATTENTION: Covers are dented a bit on the upper left corner - but its a hell cheaper!!!!
