At the time of writing, they have completed well over 5500 live shows (many times two or three performances per night, such as the now famous OTMAPP Festivals). Paul Fenech has also released ten highly regarded solo albums and plays in many side projects including The Legendary Raw Deal (rockabilly), The Surfing Dead (instrumental), and The Murder Brothers.He is also a prolific and successful writer of horror film music and has written extensively for television and many other films (Under a pseudonym).This, coupled with Fenech's ritual of spitting (chicken) blood during performances, led many clubs into believing the band was dangerous and refusing to book them.The band began playing at punk rock clubs alongside UK punk bands such as The Clash, The Damned, and later Anti-Nowhere League and the UK Subs.However, unlike many punk bands, The Meteors would (and still very much do) insist that their shows be "a politics and religion free zone" in order to focus on having a good time instead of allowing disputes between fans to break out.
Originally from London, England, they are often credited with giving the psychobilly subgenre—which fuses punk rock with rockabilly—its distinctive sound and style.The current line-up includes Hendrik Corleone on bass and Wolfgang Hordemann (who, though not from the original line up, is the longest serving member by far after Fenech) on drums.They have 25 official albums, countless singles, and numerous re-issues and compilation appearances.They continue to record using their own In Heaven recording studios, based in an old church—Fenech is a fully qualified sound engineer and producer—and also Maddog Studios (a 58-metre-high (190 ft) tower in Germany), both professional studios used by many bands from around the world.The Meteors have extensively toured Japan, Europe and Scandinavia, South America, USA, and Canada.
The tracks were also issued as a rare 12" mini-album called The Meteors Meet Screaming Lord Sutch.
