Artist Biography by

Powerful blues-based rock quartet from Roxbury, Massachusetts, USA, who sparked to life briefly in the mid-80s but disappeared just as quickly. With a line-up of Jack Hickey (guitar), John Hovorka (guitar, vocals), Fred Nazzaro (drums) and David Shibler (drums), the Turbines occupied a space somewhere between the frenzied rockabilly of the Cramps and the mannered dark élan of early Nick Cave. It later transpired that the band were close allies of the Blasters, whose country punk experiments constituted another comparison invoked over the course of their two albums.
