About Slapbacks:
Keepin? it simple? ?has always been the band?s credo: two screamin? guitars, a slappin? double bass and a soulful voice ? what else do you need? NOTHIN? ? at least from the band member?s point of view because this is exactly the cast of THE SLAPBACKS: 3 men ? 3 instruments ? pure music without compromises. Working with this formula for years it finally turned out to be the most uncomplicated way of performing, recording and having fun. It?s just the lowest common denominator to create a cool Rockabilly sound ? nothing else can be left out.


So what is Rockabilly? You may call it the Punk of the 1950?s: rough down-to-earth musical energy with the edgy ?I-don?t-give-a-damn?-attitude played with an almost primitive instrumentation (i.e. guitars and double bass). These are the ingredients THE SLAPBACKS pack in their dynamic stage shows and on their recordings.

Wot! No drums? That?s right! Real authentic Rockabilly is played without a drum kit but don?t worry: THE SLAPBACKS will kick your ass! To keep the beat pumpin? they customized a wooden box (a.k.a. the ?Beat Box?) as a substitution for drums. This makes the band not only an unique format but also independent of the size of the venue they?re going to rock.
