Description:
Ellery Bop were an 1980s Rock/indie band with Liverpool/Irish roots.

Lineup

  • Jamie Farrell : vocalist/lead guitarist (ex-English Opium Eaters
  • Steve Johnson : guitarist
  • Robbie Butcher : bass guitar
  • Kev Connolly : percussion
  • Mark Parry : drums (later Thunderboots, Steppin’ Razor, Western Promise)


Career

The band toured infrequently but recorded several sessions for the BBC with John Peel and Janice Long. They produced a much more energetic sound than contemporary bands but seemed unable to capture the volume and energy of their live performances on record. A John Peel session recorded live at the London I.C.A. came closest to capturing the band at their best. The band claimed bands such as MC5, Stooges, Ramones, Heartbreakers and The Clash as their influences,something heard more on later recordings although early tracks show a more rockabilly and punk influence.
