I have but one song from today’s band, courtesy of its inclusion in the 5xCD Big Gold Dreams box set, issued by Cherry Red Records in 2019. so I have to rely on the info provided within the accompanying booklet:-
Close your eyes, and you could be in a Hamburg cellar club circa 1958, listening to the slicked-back sounds of Styng Rytes, led by vocalist George Miller, aka Kaiser George. This debut three-track EP tapped into a then burgeoning wave of retro rock and roll and garage band psychobilly, which retained a vintage purity through frenetic live shows. Miller kept up appearances with his next band The Kaisers, who released umpteen records over their decade-long existence, and continues to do so with The New Piccadillys.

The EP came out on the band’s own Snaffle Records in 1985. The following year would see the release of a second EP, Night Cruising, issued on DDT Records, which was based in Edinburgh.
