|DESCRIBED excitedly as psychobilly, punkabilly, punk n roll, cowpunk, whatever...these guys know how to rock.|
THE TERMITES played up and down the UK and over in Europe, spreading their brand of fast and furious no-nonsense rock n roll. Building a good following wherever they travelled they became a popular act on the psychobilly/punk scene. The band were as notorious for their off stage antics as they were for their psychotic stage show. However hard living took its toll early in the bands career.
THE TERMITES were a short fuse that blew just as they were becoming one of the big names on the scene. The band were plagued by bad luck and numerous bust ups between band members. Just as a second album was being discussed it was all over. THE TERMITES grudgingly parted ways. There never was an official split!
Kenny tried to keep the band going since the original split, with numerous replacements, but to no avail. He then joined punk n roll band THE HATEVILLE HEROES playing live around the UK.
There was a brief TERMITES reunion in 2000 when they played a few gigs in UK but this was cut short when Kenny moved to the USA.
Then in 2005 THE TERMITES got their act together...at last...with the ORIGINAL LINE UP (and more!) They are back on the road promoting the re-issue of their album "OVERLOAD" check it out.
