Biography

The Krewmen was formed originally in 1982 by Tony McMillan. The bands sound at that time was pure rockabilly. From 1982-1984 the Krewmen played many gigs around UK, mostly at small pubs and clubs. The start of 1985 the band was pick to play “Elvis Presley” early band in in “Elvis the musical”. Whitch toured the USA-Canada an the UK for 9 month. On returning from Canada the Krewmen had several offers from labels from UK, France, Holland, Sweden and the USA. They were about to sign with Lost Moment Records, when two of the band decided to leave the band to do other things, like car-washing and playing in local pubs.

Tony then recruited Jimmy Fahy (Drums) and Carl Sonny Leyland (Guitar/ Vocals). With the new line up the Krewmen’s sound changed from pure rockabilly to a more blues/rockabilly sound. They then signed to Lost Moment Records in 1985 an releases what you are today and ramblin’.
Allthough the band were having a great deal of success, with both their record sales and touring all over Europe. Tony decided he wanted the band to go in another direction. For he was getting totaly bored playing other peoples material. He wanted to record-write and play his own material. Also Lost Moment Records wanted the band to record Tony’s material. But Carl and Jimmy were only interested in playing covers. So they had to go. So in late 1985, Tony once again reformed the Krewmen. In came Mark Cole (Vocals), Jason Thornton (Double Bass), and Dominic Parr (Drums) with Tony going back on guitar. With this new line up, Tony was at last able to write and produce the harder heavyer sound he had always wante the Krewmen to play. This line up releases the albums The Adventures of the Krewmen (1986), Sweet Dreams (1987) and Into the Tomb (1987).
