… one of the finest jive outfits in decades. There just aren’t enough superlatives in the English language to properly describe the immense cool of this group and this disc. A simple “wow” is way too little. A simple “holy mother of pearl this band is so good it’s criminal” doesn’t even do the job.
– Michael Macomber, Retro Music Review (U.S.)”You only have to hear the first number to realise that you are in for a great, no fantastic, night of fast jumpin’ jive. At London’s Rivoli Ballroom and the 100 Club in Oxford Street, the joints are still jumpin’ from their performances. I can’t wait to see and hear them again.”

– Peter Stechman, London. (Independent Reader Review posted on the Evening Standard’s “thisislondon.co.uk” website.)

    Pretty old picture! That bloke left the Slammers 2 years ago, got a new singer now.

      Did you mean pretty as a picture?

      Hopefully my camera will be charged and I’ll remember to bring it along to take some new shots at the Slammers gig on August 21.
