Following in the tradition of albums like the Who’s Quadrophenia this is a ‘rocktale’ comprising of 15 new songs + 14 ‘rocktale’ story links making it a roller coaster ride of an album!
Set in 1960s swinging London the album, written by original Londoners Riff Regan and Steve Voice, is about Ricky Tanner, an 18 year old grease monkey survivor, and his short but eventful time spent as a member of the notorious ‘Hell for Leather Mob’ led by master criminal Lewis Beretta.
It’s our homage to the great British gangster films of the sixties. From The League of Gentlemen to Robbery, and The Italian Job. Films that starred Stanley Baker, James Fox, Michael Caine and others.
Best played at maximum “you’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off” volume.
