Peter Parker’s Rock N Roll Club
July 20th NEW 7″ OUT NOW – Downtown Tokyo/Mama Stop Your Baby Cryin’
Peter Parker’s Rock N Roll Club are a two piece band based in Soho, London. Influences include The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, R & B, Soul, Big Band Jazz and more all wrapped up with a lot of Rock N Roll attitude. This is edgy, punky and vibrant music dealing with modern themes which makes for addictive and essential listening.
They have released several records on TOR Records, none of which is available on CD or download. The band have been featured in Rolling Stone (Germany) and have had excellent reviews in both Rolling Stone, Record Collector and many on line music websites.
Their first album “Straight To Vinyl” was a big success, predominately in Germany where the band have been championed by Wolfgang Doebeling (Radioeins, Berlin), indeed they have toured there and also supported Travis as part of a European tour. The album was recorded on a 1930’s cutting lathe at Lewis Durham’s (Kitty, Daisy and Lewis) vintage recording studio in London. Straight To Vinyl was released on 180gram red vinyl and sold out within weeks, it was subsequently reissued by TOR Records on black vinyl and very few copies of that pressing are still available.
The next release was Record Store Day 2013 EP released on blue vinyl. That has also sold out. That was followed by a 10″ release “The Revox Tapes” as all the tracks were cut using a G 36 Revox reel To reel tape deck. These recordings are the first that the band ever made so it brought their recording output up to date. Peter’s vocals on this album were recorded using a Douglas PA that once belonged to Steve Marriott.
Their new double A side single “Downtown Tokyo/Mama Stop Your Baby Cryin’ will be released in July 2015 and has already sold well on pre order. Lyric inner with the lyrics in English and Japanese, factory sealed with a sticker to the front. The first 50 copies will be signed by the band. The record has already had a great review in Rolling Stone, Germany.
