Hip Hop Baby / All Day, All Night
Another German Rockabilly band. The Marvenells were Bernhard Ballweg on vocals and guitar, Thilo Pieper (Firebugs) on vocals and guitar, Ralf Becker on upright bass, and Michael Larisch on drums.
A side is a swingin’ Rockabilly with a hot double bass solo. All Day All Nite is more rural bop with nice vocal harmonies and nice pickin’ too.

The Firebugs were a German trio from Bielefeld formed by Jörg Plachetka on double-bass, Martin Schwedes on drums, and Thilo Pieper on guitar.
They recorded their debut single in 1990 with two original songs.
Bikerboots & Leathejackets is a super-fast neo-Rockabilly with a clean and sharp guitar solo as good as anything done by the Nitros. The B-side shows some jazz ingredients and could be seen as a neo-Rockabilly version of a song from The Threepenny Opera.
