Long Tall Texans

"For the nine years that the Long Tall Texans have been together, they have proudly maintained an originality and element of surprise not normally found within the psychobilly style. Starting off as the opening act at the psycho mecca, London's Klub Foot ('..which was great to do as we didn't have to pay to get in!'), the Long Tall Texans slowly worked their way up the bill until they were the headlining act. On stage, double bass player Mark Carew, who looks like he hasn't had a decent meal for months, disrespectfully hammers his instrument at such a frantic pace it's no surprise that now and again it simply falls apart! They're a band committed to enjoying themselves and giving value for money, and have always kept a very close rapport with their growing number of fans, deliberately avoiding any superficial superstar arrogance.
     After thousands of U.K. gigs and numerous trips abroad, The Long Tall Texans release 'Singing To The Moon' on Rage Records. This album is the band's fifth and contains fifteen newly recorded songs. This album was also released on a limited edition picture disc!!
     Due to the popularity of this album and their previous material, Rage Records releases 'In Without Knockin', a compilation of old and new material. The Long Tall Texans are now recognised as one of the top Psycho/Rockin'bands on the scene. Following the release of this record Mark Denman left the band to be replaced by Doug Shepherd (ex-Rattlers) on guitar." Original press release 1991
