ivy room presents FRIDAY JANUARY 10TH — THE METEORS & SPECIAL GUESTS — Doors 7:30pm / Show 8:00pm $18 Advance* / $22 Door — IVY ROOM 860 San Pablo Ave, Albany • 21+ (rsvp on facebook) THE METEORS — The Meteors are back! The Meteors are an English psychobily band formed in 1980. Originally from London, England, they are often credited with giving the psychobilly subgenre — which fuses punk rock with rockabilly — its distinctive sound and style. About.com calls the Meteors "the first true psychobilly band," noting their blend of the "themes of horror, punk and rockabilly". They were the second band to use the term 'Psychobilly' as a description of their music. Formed in South London in 1980, they are considered the first verifiable psychobilly band. Their albums In Heaven (1981) and Wreckin' Crew (1983) are considered landmarks of the early years of the genre. "Starting in the neo-rockabilly scene, the Meteors were initially shunned for being too different. Excuses for exclusion from rockabilly concerts varied from the band having too extreme of a sound to their drummer having green hair. "The Meteors blended elements of punk rock, rockabilly, and horror film themes in their music. The Meteors articulated psychobilly's apolitical stance, a reaction to the right- and left-wing political attitudes which divided other British youth cultures. They have 25 official albums and countless singles and continue to record using their own studios based in an old church all overseen by original member, P. Paul Fenech.
