The Balham Alligators: Gateway To The South (CD)

(1996/Proper Records) 12 tracks

Since getting together back in 1983. The Balham Alligators have been 'kicking ass' in clubs. concert halls and at festivals all over Europe. At the tail-end of '95 they finished recording their third and finest album to date. 'Gateway To The South' is a spicy gumbo of rock 'n' roll. swamp-pop. country. cajun. zydeco and New Orleans-style boogie-woogie. that's served up with more energy and excitement than the Pistols could manage after a fortnight in Colombia.

Theirs is rockin' roots-music that's out to party. that doesn't give a damn about tomorrow's hangover. and vibrates with more good-time energy than is safe to be consumed by 9-5•ers not in possession of a valid doctor's note. The experts have dubbed The Alligators' sound 'Bayou Boogie'. but that's only half the story. Live on record, The Balham Alligators have something very special to offer. Find out what it is today. Your future happiness could depend on it.
