Twenty Fight Years – 20 Years Eddy and the Backfires!
What began 20 years ago near Hanover is now an integral part of the international Rockabilly scene. Eddy and the Backfires have fought their way through and have earned themselves a firm place with their own style of desperate rockabilly. They got the water boiling in every club and every hall, and the amazing thing is that they not only rock their wild sound live on stage, but also in the same way in a recording studio! This album is the proof! Eight fine original compositions and five cover versions tell the musical story of the band. Among the cover songs are such interesting titles as Slipped My Mouth, written by the unforgettable Carl Silva, originally released by Carl & The Rhythm Allstars on Wild Records. Or the classic tune A Cat Called Domino by Roy Orbison. Of course, the cover also contains the story of the band, written in words, as well as many photos!

Backfire Records artists Eddy & The Backfires are the wildest act on the German Rockabilly circuit! Their own unique brand of authentic Rockabilly sound in combination with their stage presence sets every audience on fire, not only in Germany but everywhere! It's a wildfire!
There's Eddy, the exciting and charismatic front man with his powerful voice, and in fact the band's only founding member in the actual line-up. The line-up changed a few times, e.g. Randy Rich joined the band on drums in 2008 and switched to guitar sometime later when Patrick joined in on drums in 2013. But it happened in 2015 when Eddy could complete his new line-up. With Patrick still on drums, Jared on lead-guitar and Christian slappin' the upright bass, the band's now hawg wild and ready to rock every audience!
If you like the sounds of Elvis, Carl Perkins, Link Wray and pure 50s culture you're on the right track and ready for a Backfires show and for buying their records! These men love 50s music, style and culture and that makes them able to create the unique Backfires sound by heart.
