JOHN LEWIS HAS BEEN A STALWART OF THE UK ROCKABILLY SCENE FOR MANY YEARS. THIS CD WAS SO NAMED AS MUCH OF IT WAS RECORDED IN THE BILLY BANKS, A COUNCIL HOUSING ESTATE IN PENARTH, WALES. THE BILLY BANKS ESTATE WAS CONSTRUCTED IN THE LATE 1960’S WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS OVER CARDIFF BAY THE ESTATE PROVIDED HOUSING FOR AROUND 600 PEOPLE. ONCE DESCRIBED AS THE “HEART AND SOUL” OF PENARTH, IN ITS DERELICT YEARS THE SITE CAME TO BE SEEN AS AN EYESORE AND “MONSTROSITY” AND IN 1998 THE DECISION WAS MADE TO EMPTY THE FLATS AND BUILD A WHOLE NEW COMPLEX. “THE BILLY BANKS SESSIONS” WAS LARGELY RECORDED LIVE IN ONE OF THE REMAINING OCCUPIED FLATS IN 2011. GOOD MODERN ROCKABILLY ****
