Rockabilly Punks The Zipheads mark the release of their debut album with a party in Camden next Saturday!
Hailing from St Albans, UK, The Zipheads play Rock’n’Roll infused with Punk, Surf, Swing, Ska, Soul, Reggae and Irish influences.
Initially formed as a punk band around 2005, influenced by The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Descendents and the like, the band members eventually became more and more enamoured with 50’s Rock’n’Roll and Rockabilly, and The Zipheads was put on hiatus to form The Runaway Boys, a Rock’n’Roll revue band, playing every pub, town hall and social club in the south east.
The Runaway Boys saw the introduction of double bass as opposed to bass guitar, and it was in this band that the young musicians cut their teeth, bashing out 50s classics with a punk sensibility and more than a nod to the pub rock scene of the 70s.
2008 saw the release of an EP containing their first ever self-penned songs and a shift to focus on original material rather than covers. The band lay dormant for a while, then around 2010 The Runaway Boys moniker was dropped, and The Zipheads mantle was restored.
