Tennessee Wankers – three musicians based in Belgrade, Serbia, who have played and lived rockabilly all their lives, though good and bad times alike. Eight songs included therein were recorded in a single session on 23 February 2020 at Commander Adam’s studio in Sremska Kamenica – the boys jumped in an old Ford straight after a gig played at Belgrade’s Metropolis Club the previous evening, and rocked up to the studio to record the album in the morning.
The result is before you to judge. The idea behind the project was to record early Elvis material the way he could have done had he stayed with Sam Phillips, and had the Sun studios had the benefit of modern clarity and contemporary ideas. Thus, all songs were recorded the Sun way – three acoustic instruments and vocals played and recorded live in a single room – however with the benefit of modern digital recording and processing, which secured a larger sound picture than Sun’s RCA radio console.
The Tennessee Wankers are:
Nikola Dragovic – vocal and acoustic guitar
Sasa Jovanovic Jovandeka – lead guitar
Andreja Milosevic – double bass
