Big Black Cadillac, Neo Rockabilly from Norfolk U.K.
  

Big Black Cadillac began life in a sleepy Norfolk village in the UK some 3 to 4 years back. We started just for some fun and soon ended up in a local studio recording some covers. The original line up was Dale Beauchamp on guitar (formerly Dawghouse, Wild Flames & Restless Spirits), Slap Bass Mark Beckley (formerly Shock Therapy and went on to join the Rhythm Boys), Steve Medler on drums (formerly Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo later V8 Rumble) and myself Neil Thomas on vocals (Shock Therapy & Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo). We played a few gigs and had the privilege of supporting Slim Jim Phantom with Darrel Higham at a large Norwich venue but split almost the day after.

A year or so later Dale and I reformed the band and were joined by Del on drums and Paul Syrette (formerly Wild Band Snuff Movie Stars) on slap bass. We began playing again and the gigs just kept rollin' in. So much so that Del on drums couldn't make them all and was then replaced by Adam Kirlew (Speedkings, V8 Rumble and Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo). Adam plays stand up drums which adds a new look to the band. This year 2008 we will have played around 80 gigs in the UK, Rock n Roll clubs, Biker events, weekenders etc etc. We are going to record an album of originals early next year and have had some of our cover tracks released on the Vampirette label.
