The Fretz formed about 20 years ago a psychobilly band and now features none of the original members. As the original members slowly grew older they were replaced by juvenile delinquents from outer space who knew and loved real rockabilly. Their mission was simple to spread the rockabilly word across the entire planet (or at least East Anglia).
The Fretz formed about 20 years ago as a psychobilly outfit. It now features none of the original members.
Over the years one by one the members have slowly migrated to pastures new, grew up and their wives told them that they can’t play with zimmer frames, new and more youthful young scallywags came unto the breach.
Each new member brought his interpretation and style slowly bringing the music back to a more rock-a-billy audience. The Fretz have gone through many a musical change – mostly for the worst. We now have Four guys who all seem to be on the same musical wavelength and are now going the the right directions with no conflicts.
