started almost twenty years ago as a reaction against the soft rockabilly that was popular at that time and they have now evolved to become the acknowledged "Kings of Psychobilly".
Their audience has now expanded, and includes not just psychobillies, but everybody from rockabillies and punks, to bikers, skinheads and most alternatives.They are the original creators of Psychobilly Music, and although they have spawned hundreds of imitations, The Meteors are proud to be the only pure psychobilly band ever. Their songs are inspired by their personal experiences and interests; Horror, Perversion, and Death in general. They list their hobbies as motorbikes, rock'n'roll, and burying the living, and their heroes as Michael Myers, Charles Manson and the guy who shot John Lennon.
They have now made no less than seventeen official albums, (a complete discography is enclosed) and countless singles, not to mention dozens of compilations and re-issues. Many were made in their own recording studio, "In Heaven", and lead-man Paul Fenech has also released three solo albums. World-wide sales have increased steadily over the years, and they have toured almost continuously to support these releases.
Their live show is wild and addictive, (they have done it over thousands of times) and has been seen in just about every country in the world, including Japan, several tours of America, and every major city in Europe and Scandinavia. Everybody is welcome at a Meteors show, and the band make a point that The Meteors Live is a political or religious free zone. People should come to enjoy the music, and to wreck if they are brave enough! It's wild and sweaty, but nobody gets seriously hurt.
They are supported by a flourishing fan club, with thousands of members worldwide, each of who get free regular letters about releases, tours, band news and new merchandise, and there are several internet web sites devoted to them. (They have been voted Number One Band, and Number One Song, continuiusly for the last year and a half on The Psychobilly Homepage) and they receive daily e-mail from fans from every corner of the earth. Although there have been line-up changes over the years, (Paul Fenech being the only original member) the search for the perfect combination is now over. The Meteors are a known name, experienced, professional working band, with an established audience. Their most recent release is Bastard Sons of a Rock?n?roll Devil, which has been very well received by press & audience around the world.
