The Ricochets were definitely one of the first Psychobilly acts, mixing Rockabilly with some Punk attitude . The lineup included the brothers Steve (g) and Sam Sardi (b) and Dave Jones (v). As time went on, the trio decided to a drum and find a guy called Steve Meadham (d). They were the backing band for Marney Webb and were named » Pink & Black » at the time. They went on to change their name and recorded some tunes. After the positive response from the two tracks released on « Hep Cat Hop » the quartet produced an album under the guidance of Roy Williams. « Made In The Shade » (1982) became an all time classic that had a huge impact on the Psychobillly and Rockabilly scene .
However the lads decided to go their own separate ways. Sam Sardi gained fame with the Guana Batz and Steve Meadham joined The Meteors. The Ricochets were done until 1992 , when a second album followed. In 2004 the Ricochets started to tour again all over Europe.
