Pierre Lavendel

 

 

Born: 1971

The amazing PIERRE LAVENDEL is a crude mix of Brandan Behan and Elvis Presley. He was born in Oblivion a few decades ago and joined "PERFECT" in 2004. He also played for psychobilly legend "Frantic Flintstones" between 2005 - 2007 and has several strange projects moving, including "The Cokeras" & "Treue Bergvagabunden" (Infos can be found on Facebook!)

Pierre has brought a punky Rockabilly touch to "PERFECT"

and he loves his bandmates...ahoi...xxx

 

 

Johnny Rebel

 

on the Fender Bass guitar.

Johnny is the Scarlet Pimpernel of the band, cooly working the stage - now you see him, now you don't - but you can always feel this french kid groove. When he was a young boy back in Gaul, Johnny accidently fell into a magic cauldron of wheat. Instead of giving him super human strength and powers, it just meant that he can never, ever, EVER again drink beer. Fuck that sucks !

 

and "Nein man, er will noch nicht geh'n..."

 

Andy "Bloody" Brown

 

plays power accordion from the crypt, creepy as hell, his dulcet tones will mesmerise you and will you to move towards the stage and sway to the beat. Andy is Rumanian but prefers schnapps to blood. He has been playing on and off as a guest star for PERFECT since the spring of 2015.

 

Andy brings the schnapps, humour and über-cool dance moves to the band.

 

El Diablo - Sebastian Sanchez

 

Drums

...ay caramba!!!...

 

Mister mexico city 2008..simply the best mexican drummer we know! Rocksteady,cool as ice, loud as fuck...and kicks like a mule ! He has been playing with Jamie and the boys since October 2015, completing his initiation that December with the ceremonial cutting of hair. Well done Sebastian, you made it !

 

He plays a stand-up silver sparkling cocktail-kit !
