Wainwright Paul - The Resurrection of The Crazed (Kirjat)


The scene meant so much to so many and ‘The Crazed’ was there to document it.
This book recaptures how it felt at the time. After lying dormant for over 30 years ‘The Crazed’ has now been resurrected.

Join the author as he journeys back to those mutant rockin’, venue wreckin’, snakebite sodden days of the Psychobilly/neoRockabilly scene of the 80’s. His fanzine ‘The Crazed’ was right there, reporting on the scene as it grew and writing about bands such as The Meteors, GuanaBatz, Demented Are Go, King Kurt, Long Tall Texans and Restless.

Travel back through those articles and interviews and revisit the experience. Enjoy noisy nights at The Klub Foot, mecca of all
things Psychobilly, where many of these interviews were conducted after sweaty gigs. Read the bands own words, full of enthusiasm, excitement and optimism about what the future might hold, and discover what it was like to produce and edit a
fanzine back then.

In Paul’s teenage years during the 1980’s he was totally captured by the Psychobilly, Garage and Rockabilly scene. He couldn’t play an instrument and really didn’t have the patience to learn but really wanted to get recognised within the scene. He had an inquisitive mind and decided to attempt to produce a fanzine which would give him the opportunity to meet and question many of the bands whose records he was so religiously buying.

The first interview he conducted was with arguably the biggest Psychobilly band in England – The Meteors. This set-in motion a series of interviews with other bands and musicians within the scene, many of whom had not been given any exposure from the English music press.

His fanzine was called ‘The Crazed’ and lasted for just four issues, but featured interviews with quite a few of the leading 80’s
Psychobilly/Rockabilly bands, such as The Meteors, GuanaBatz, Demented Are Go, Restless and more.
