Slim_Jim_Phantom_Adelaide_2006Slim Jim Phantom, stand up rockabilly drum beast from the famed Stray Cats and Gretsch drum endorsee is coming to town. Alongside band mates Brian Setzer and Lee Rocker, Slim Jim spearheaded the neo-rockabilly movement of the early 80s. With a love for 50s rock n roll the Stray Cats took inspiration from the bygone era and mixed with their youthful energy and aggression produced the updated hard-edged rockabilly sound that saw them conquer London, Europe and later the US, gaining fans among the likes of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Robert Plant along the way. During downtime from the Stray Cats Jim has worked with some of the world’s top artists and has played a part in many successful groups; notably “Phantom, Rocker and Slick” featuring guitarist Earl Slick which produced two popular albums, “The Swing Cats” featuring guitar ace Danny B Harvey and “Dead Men Walking” an all-star affair which boasted original members of The Sex Pistols, The Cult and Big Country among the line-up. Jim also enjoyed a stint playing with The Killer, rock n roll originator, Jerry Lee Lewis.
More recently, Jim has been creating musical havoc with roots-rock trio The Head Cats which features Lemmy and Danny B Harvey.
Slim Jim Phantom will be ably supported on his Australian tour by local rockabilly powerhouse Fireballs.
