Rock ‘n’ roll harmony trio THE REBELLES have made a new video for their upcoming debut single and are launching it exclusively with Vive Le Rock!
Comprising Tracie Hunter, Elizabeth Westwood and Phoebe White, The Rebelles deliver unique, heartfelt takes on classic tracks from the punk and glam eras, often with a little help from the folks who made the songs famous.
Their timely take on the BOWIE-penned / MOTT-recorded glam hymn ‘All The Young Dudes’ hears them joined on backing vocals and acoustic guitar by Ian Hunter, who revisits the track he and Mott took to number 3 in 1972. Bass is provided by the SEX PISTOLS’ Glen Matlock, while James Stevenson (THE CULT, GENERATION X), and Neil Gabbitas lend their guitar skills.
The accompanying video was filmed by Billy Boyd Cape during the star-studded recording sessions for the single, and captures the intuitive vocal interplay, intense chemistry, and infectious sense of fun, which lend the Rebelles’ special guest-filled live shows the feel of an intimate jam session crossed with an all-star stage invasion.
‘All The Young Dudes’ is released on 18 March via Turtle Recordings, and is the first single to be taken from a forthcoming album that’s set to feature cameos by Mick Jones, Clem Burke, Chris Spedding, Slim Jim Phantom and Kenney Jones (readers may like to hazard a guess at the tracklisting based on those names). Tracie says, “expect to hear ten songs on this album that you already love, that will make you smile when you realise what it is, expect to hear a punk attitude draped in silk with a few sharp edges. Expect to escape for a while with us”.
