Gina and the Rockin’ Rebels
ALL 102 – 1978
Rockin’ on down the line / Thinkin’ on you
Gina and the Rockin’ Rebels were Gina Wall (vocals) Johnny Wall (rhythm guitar) Paul James (lead guitar), Lol Lewis (bass) and Billy Sloane (drums). They recorded their debut single in 1978 for Alligator Records a British rockabilly label based in North London, active between 1978 and 1980. The songs were recorded at BTW Recording Studios in Wood Green, North London.
Gina Wall had a really great voice made for Rockabilly and the band provided the perfect backing. Penned by Gina and bassist Lol Lewis, Rockin’ on Down the Line sounds like a mix between “That’s All Right” and Buddy Holly’s song of almost the same name.
Thinkin’ of You is equally good, mostly acoustic with just a little electricity on the guitar.
They later evolved into Gina and the Strollers, and continue til this day, minus Gina, as the Strollers.
