The Kaisers TV Appearance - Hip Shake Shimmy Kitten

While I am reluctant to claim that the beat sound of the 60's has ever left our friends over in jolly ole England, there have definitely been resurgence of popularity over the years. None have captured that sound quite like the Kaisers. Hailing from Scotland, the Kaisers made a name for themselves within the beat scene in the early 90's that eventually lead to a US tour in the mid 90's. The Kaisers have such a hold of the invasion sound that they have been mistakingly put on 1960's compilation albums. Their last album "Shake Me" was released in 2001, and the members have since gone on to other projects. Kaiser George has his own work as well as occasionally lending his vocal talent for Los Straitjackets, the Hi-Risers and the Neanderthals. Occasionally, two other band members will join with two members of the Rapiers and play as the Ravemen. While the Kaisers have no official videos, here they are in their first TV appearance performing a song off their first album "Squarehead Stomp", a 1993 release from No Hit Records...
