The Hellboppers debut album ‘Hellectricity?’ is country Blues from the front-porch.
The love of the Blues brings together three old friends to capture the warmth of those live, analogue sounds that inspire summer lounge-room jam sessions... The result is ‘Hellectricity?’.
The Hellboppers are John Russell on lead and slide guitar, Ian Dittman on lead vocals, resonator guitars and mandolin, and Steve Trew is purveyor of harmonicas.
The Hellboppers beginnings were with a Sydney blues and swing band, The Bellhops, playing to every kind of audience from acoustic dinner functions to smokey pubs. This album of originals and renditions of the country blues that influenced their new project, draws the best from the trio.
Featured tracks include: “Can’t Be Satisfied” - Muddy Waters, “Walkin’ Blues” - Robert Johnson and “Hey Hey” - Bill Broonzy.
