The Deadbeats were formed in London in the early 1980's and were the brainchild of US born singer and songwriter Suzy May. Influenced by a mix of Rockabilly, 60's Soul, Country and greasy British Rock & Roll the core line up of the band was Suzy, Tony Berrington on guitar and Kevin Green on bass. Tony and Kevin hailed from Nottingham where they had played together in various groups since their school days. In London the group frequented the rocking scene based around Dingwalls Night Club and the Hope & Anchor. A number of drummers occupied the drum stool including Parker, Keith (from the Darts) and Gary Long (Tenpole Tudor). Finally Mark Robertson (ex Meteors) was recruited. The band recorded an independent single "Crazy Hound Dog/Crazy when I hear that Beat" with their management company at the time - Blackhill. Gary played drums on the A side, Parker on the B side. The band then signed to New Rose Records in France for who they recorded the LP "On Tar Beach" from which the single "New Girl" was released. The recordings were made at Jacksons Studios with the late great Vic Maile producing. The band toured sporadically in the UK (supporting the Stray Cats and Pogues amongst others) and undertook an eventful two week tour of France.They began demoing songs for a second album but split around 1987.Currently Suzy lives in Liverpool, Tony in London (he is the guitarist for Girls on Top),Kevin between Florida and the south coast of the UK and Mark in France.
