Biography

Northern England (early 80's – 1987)

The Sting-Rays (UK). Formed in the early 80’s, they were based in Northern England. During a six year span they issued five albums, six singles, appeared on several Psychobilly compilation albums and toured all over Europe. Their live performances were legendary, highly energetic and chaotic.

Often labeled under Psychobilly, but they were more than that. They had original sound and style and often progressive lyrics. On “Cryptic And Coffee Time” (1987) they were evolved and the “psycho” was replaced by a more melancholic sound. Unfortunately they split up after that album.
