The Godfathers originally formed in 1985, emerging out of the ashes of The Sid Presley Experience. They dressed liked The Mob and sounded like Johnny Thunders' bastard English offspring, quickly establishing a fearsome reputation for their no-holds barred high energy live show. In the dark days of Eighties Britain, The Godfathers were a beacon of Rock'n'Roll light in an otherwise bleak time. They scored a US Top 40 Billboard hit with the storming rocker "Birth School Work Death" in 1987 and became a mainstay of US college radio.
After years of speculation and expectation The Godfathers reformed earlier this year and played onstage together in London for the first time in nineteen years. The band delivered a blistering set at a St. Valentine's Day Massacre show in London that rocked the house ragged and proclaiming the show the #1 Live show of 2008 by Music News Magazine. The momentum has continued with a series of European festival appearances over the summer that has seen the band accelerate from strength to strength.
To celebrate their return they reissued their classic debut album "Hit By Hit" in an exclusive collectors 2CD set released through the bands own independent label Corporate Image.
