STEVE HOOKER’S SHAKERS – Really Gone [1984]/ The Missing Link EP [1986]/ This Stuff Gonna Bust Your Brains Out [1986]/ Back In The Day [1988]

 

This is a collection of Steven Hooker’s 80’s recordings, Lp and Eps with The Shakers and Wilko Johnson. As you know this UK cat shared stages with Chuck Berry, Johnny Thunders, Robert Gordon so you can get the story. His style is a mix of rockabilly, rhythm & blues of pub rockers Dr.Feelgood and Johnny Thunders “pirate love” guitar. My favorite is ’86” The Missing Link” Ep and great tunes as ”Prisoner D’Amour”, ”(Like A) Stake Through My Heart”, ”Everybody Knows” or ”How Did You Know (Paris Mix)” from ”This Stuff Gonna Bust…” where he xeroxed that Johnny T. sound from ”In Cold Blood”/“Que Serra” period. Don’t miss it, it’s pretty rare stuff. Vinyl Rips, Dig!!!

  1. Great post Mister. I saw him in the 80’s maybe around 86-87 because i bought the missing Link EP and the split with The Cobras. In my opinion, Steve Hooker was a sort Johnny Thunders but with less popularity. Anyway he issued some good records and it’s enough.
    Thanks for the post.
