Nigel Lewis is one of the godfathers of Psychobilly. Together with P.Paul Fenech he made up the Meteors back in 1979 and never stopped rockin ever since.
He left the Meteors after the first long player but his dark mind came to surface again in the Escalators and the Tall Boys. He was the mastermind behind these bands with his guitar and his unique voice. A few years ago Nigel decided to get a few guys together for a new project known as Nigel Lewis and the Zorchmen. The other band members were well known in our scene. Choppy (Caravans, Demented are Go and many other bands) playing bass, Ginger on drums (Ricochets and second drummer of the Meteors, Guana Batz) and Doyle (Klingonz) on guitar. They toured for a while and did some really good festival gigs. One of them on the 20th Satanic Stomp in Speyer, back in 2007. What a gig! In May 2009 Nigel played on Nutty Dave´s wake (see you in hell, old fella) at the Gaff in London. As Choppy was not available that night he decided to play bass himself. It was a revelation. To see the first bass player of our scene playing a double bass again was thrilling. Most of us even didn´t know what Psychobilly is when he did that on stage for the last time.
