The Violents - AT The Star Club Hamburg

The Violents - AT The Star Club Hamburg

Violents was a mainly instrumental guitar pop group formed in Stockholm, 1959. Their first record was an instrumental version of a traditional song, "Alpens Ros", that gave them a hit in 1961 on the Swedish charts. The first recorded songs were recommendations by their record company but they soon started to write their own songs more in line with their own musical taste. Violents started after a while to search for a lead singer to get more variations on their concerts, which could last for hours. They found in 1961 a talented young rock singer named Jerry Williams with a good reputation as a live act and who agreed to be member of the group. In that way started a cooperation who lasted to the split year of the group Violents, 1966. The first recording with Jerry Williams was "Liebestwist" in 1962. In the start, Violents were the main attraction but soon the spotlight was mainly on Jerry and the band became a backing group with a record career separate from Jerry's own solo career. The last lp album with Violents behind Jerry Williams was Action (1966). Among the group's highlights in their international career was to play at the Star Club in Hamburg 1962 with The Beatles and Little Richard. The Beatles were just second band to Violents at that time and it is rumoured that George Harrison was test playing for a membership in Violents because he was tired of The Beatles, but that the Violents didn't want him.

The Roadrunners emerged in 1962, having previously played as the Tenabeats. In those days, there was no white R&B scene in / Liverpool, as there was in London, centred on the activities of the rather older jazz-blues guitarist Alexis Korner.

For a short period, the Roadrunners cornered the R&B market in Liverpool, as we were the only group playing the same sort of Chicago/Muddy Waters style copies as our metropolitan counterparts - very different from the sound which came to be known as "Merseybeat". Thus we became the band of first choice for University and College gigs as the "trad" jazz bands which were popular at the time were swiftly replaced by something a bit more "a la mode".

The Roadrunners' spiritual home was the "Everyman Club" in the basement of the Everyman Cinema (now theatre) known as "Hope Hall". Four hundred yards from the Art School, and backing onto the university campus, the club was the hang-out of many local poets, painters and arty types, and so we became components of many diverse "events" arranged by Adrian Henri and based on Allan Kaprow's New York Happenings.

John Willett (arts correspondent of the Guardian newspaper) described one of these "happenings" as including: "Some really good things especially by Roger McGough, accompanied by an electric-guitar group, the Roadrunners: the first time I've heard poetry and jazz that really came off... Also a very effective turn with all three poets (Gorman, McGough and Patten) reading verses to a tune of the group's, which then let its own vocalist loose... There really was something there. "
