This New York band merges punk, with a Teddy Boy, rockabilly sound. Breakfast Special, released in 2008, contains 18 original recordings from the beginning of the eighties, a more recent version of Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog and a bonus track.
The opener Rockabilly Bop is just that: a rockabilly bop song, including background vocals. The second song, Wheels Start Turning, is the original eight track recording from the 4 song vinyl EP Innercity Rockabilly, released in the summer of 1981 on Rebel Records, and features Jimmy's honking baritone sax. A limited edition of only 1500 at the time, this EP is now a collector's item. It was later re-recorded and released as a 12" and 7" 45 RPM vinyl single on John Hammond's short-lived HME Label.
It garnered some airplay and was played on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand".
The one on Shark Therapy was recorded at Power Station and released on HME in 1985 as a single picture sleeve.
Bopper's Palace, the third track, was recorded in 1982 at Nyack Sound and previously unreleased. The CD also includes a studio version of At The Crossroads, which appears on Shark Therapy as a live at CBGB’s cut. The song Rhythm 'n' Ruin, recorded at Nyack Sound in 1983, has not been released before either. The Robert Johnson style bonus track is an outtake from their 2007 Built to Last album.
This CD includes many danceable tunes, sounds a bit like the Blasters or Robert Gordon and comes highly recommended for all those raw Rock’n’Roll appreciating rockabilly fans out there.

If you were around in the late seventies and early 1980's you probably were aware of an energetic neo-trend that grew up along side and within the Punk and so-called New-Wave Rock’n’Roll scene. It was a revival of what might be considered the first real rebellious teenage music genre that arose in the 1950's. It was called Rockabilly and right in the heart of it all was Finn & the Sharks. The band had a reputation for rocking hard and had an enthusiastic following whenever and wherever they played. They recorded a four song EP entitled "Innercity Rockabilly" on their own label, Rebel...
