gina and the rockin rebels

Alligator Records (not to be confused with the blues label of the same name) was a British rockabilly label based in North London, active between 1978 and 1980. With only four singles and one lp, it’s the perfect example of quality over quantity.
The Kool Kats who backed Johnny Key and Gentleman Jim, were Nigel Owen (guitar), Pete Pritchard (bass), and Terry Earl (drums) from Flying Saucers.
The songs were recorded at BTW Recording Studios in Wood Green, North London.
