The Dancehall Racketeers was formed in June 1981 by Rick Dempster and my older brother Andy Baylor. The original line-up (which included Paul Neuendorf, Graeme Thomas and the Andrews brothers, Mike and Steve) made a big impact on Melbourne and Sydney, but unfortunately broke up after only seven months. After a twelve month hiatus, Rick and Andy sought about keeping it going, knowing that it still had unfulfilled potential.
Rocket 88 is an album recorded live in Germany in 1981 by the boogie-woogie band Rocket 88. The band had a casual line-up, and d-member Ian Stewart in his liner notes makes reference to the other "permanent" band-members who were not present for that particular recording. Although it is rumoured that there are numerous bootleg live takes from other concerts, it is the band's only officially released album. It was recorded using the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio.
