P. Paul Fenech

P. Paul Fenech

P. Paul Fenech (guitar and vocals), started The Meteors in 1980 with Nigel Lewis (upright bass/electric bass and vocals), and Mark Robertson (drums). This is considered as the definitive line-up by some fans. Fenech and Lewis had played in rockabilly bands before, but left their former band, Raw Deal, in order to experiment with a new sound that mixed horror and science fiction lyrics with a punk rock / rockabilly crossover (as distinct from the slower, psychedelic rockabilly sound of the Cramps and The Hillmans). This sound would later be called psychobilly. What made them unique was that Fenech & Lewis each sang lead vocals on their own tracks. Their vocals were so different it was like having two bands in one.

P. Paul Fenech has also released six highly regarded solo albums and plays in many side projects including, the Legendary Raw Deal (rockabilly), The Surfing Dead (instrumental), Cherry and The Devil (rockabilly), The Outsiders (rockabilly). He is also a prolific and successful writer of horror film music and has written extensively for television and many other films (using a pseudonym). He is also a keen gardener and writes a weekly column under the pseudonym Helmut Fungus.
