Old School Psychobilly Formed in the summer of 1985, the ´Nails started out with Gra on bass, Toby on drums, Tony on vocals and Humungus on vocals and guitar. Everything was going well until February 1988 when Dave Ward´s untimely departure left the band singer-less. That was until Humungus, the band´s guitarist, stepped forward and found that his vocal talents and stage presence made him the ideal front-man for the band. So impressed were Link Records - a hugely successful alternative label - that a new record deal was offered and Fistful Of Burgers, the band´s second studio album, was released at the end of 1988. A steady flow of gigs continued, mainly on the continent, until 1989 when Gra left to concentrate on his metal band. A replacement was found in the form of Scott ´Mad Man´ Milsom, a young double bass player. This gave the band a new lease of life and a totally new sound. This really was a period of changing band members. Smurf left to play in a Ska band and was replaced by Fraddy for a short period during which Live & Rockin was recorded and released on Link Records at the end of 1989.
The bands first American shows were in California in 2005, then New York and back to California in 2006. 2007 started with an appearance at the ´Satanic Stomp´ festival in Speyer, Germany (where the band were joined on stage by the legendary Nigel Lewis - ex Meteors), and gigs included a headline show at a national UK Scooter Rally. 2008 and the band played for the first time in Italy and returned after many years to one of Europe´s best festivals ´Just For Fun´ in Spain. The year ended with a mini-tour of Germany and supporting Batmobile at the infamous Dingwalls venue in London. Song writing got underway with a new studio album in mind. 2009 has been a very busy year for the band, playing concerts across the UK, the Satanic Stomp in Germany, ´You Only Live Once´ festival in France, a headline show in Bremen and their first show in Finland. Clive leaves the band and Kris Rock-It joins on drums. A brand new album The Dead Don´t Get Older is released to rapturous reviews and even receives airplay on BBC Radio 1´s Punk Show with Mike Davies.
