LP - THE KREWMEN - THE BEST OF THE KREWMEN

Limited to 500 copies worldwide! THE KREWMEN was formed originally in 1982 by Tony McMillan: the bands sound at that time was pure Rock-A-Billy. From 1982-1984 THE KREWMEN played many gigs around the UK, mostly at small pubs and clubs. The start of 1985 the band was picked to play Elvis Presley''s early band in "Elvis - The Musical", which toured the USA, Canada and the UK for nine month. On returning from Canada two members of the band decided to leave to do other things. Tony then recruited Jimmy Fahy (drums) and Carl Sonny Leyland (guitar/vocals). With that new line up THE KREWMEN''s sound changed from pure Rock-A-Billy to a more Blues/Rock-A-Billy sound. Then they signed to Lost Moment Records in 1985 and released "What You Are Today" and "Ramblin''". Although the band had a great deal of success, with both: record sales and touring all over Europe. Tony decided he wanted the band to go in another direction. He was getting totally bored playing other peoples material. He wanted to record, write and play his own material, also Lost Moment Records wanted the band to record Tony''s material. In late 1985 Tony once again reformed THE KREWMEN. In came Mark Cole (vocals), Jason Thornton (double bass) and Dominic Parr (drums) with Tony going back on guitar. With this new line up Tony was at last able to write and produce the harder, heavier sound he had always wanted THE KREWMEN to play. That line up released the albums "The Adventures Of The Krewmen" (1986), "Sweet Dreams" (1987) and "Into The Tomb" (1987). Even with the band having a great amount of success all over the world with the sales of all three albums. Also they played several tours around Europe and tours booked for Japan and the USA. In the past THE KREWMEN have released 10 albums and several singles, all on Lost Moment Records. "The Curse Of The Graveyard Demon" album was released on The USA label Skyclad. They have toured Europe many times, the USA (east & west coast twice), Canada and Japan. In 1997/1998 Lost Moment Records released THE KREWMEN''s first three albums on CD - the originals were released only on vinyl. Now we haven''t heard something about the band for many years - this compilation will remember the good times of THE KREWMEN!
