Psychomania features three of the biggest and best names to emerge from the Psychobilly scene,
performing at the legendary "Night Of The Long Knives" Psychobilly festival in Birmingham, England in
1988 - and together for the first time on DVD.
The Quakes are one of the best-known U.S. Psychobilly acts and gained a large and devoted European
following during the late 1980's. The band has continued playing until the present - influencing the scene
in their native USA, throughout Europe and in Japan and touring all three continents. Their popularity in
the Far East even resulted in a major label deal with Sony.
Skitzo are one of the most successful acts from the UK scene and made a massive impact at the time of
this performance. Skitzo released two albums - 'Skitzo Mania' and 'Terminal Damage' - and quickly
became a major band on the scene, particularly in London where they were based. The rumours of a
Skitzo reunion regularly circulate and their popularity remains undiminished.
The Klingonz hold a reputation as one of the most visually exciting bands on the scene and are still
gigging to the present day. The band appeal to the wackier side of Psychobilly, taking all of its elements
to the extreme. Crazier in appearance with bizarre hair-cuts, more offensive songs, and playing faster
than their contemporaries, they made a huge impact with their insane performances and album releases
which boasted titles like 'Mongo', 'Flange', 'Jabot' and 'Bollix'. Their popularity spread right across
Europe and into Japan, where a 'Best Of' album was released.
The DVD will be serviced to all Quakes / Clintons and Skits websites, along with all major DVD press
and general Psycho Billy websites and publications.
