In the early 1970’s a young Adam Tinley, as he was then known, spotted a Teddy Boy in a flamingo pink drape suit strutting down his aunt’s London street ...” I wanna be a teddy boy when I grow up” he exclaimed to his less than impressed father.... now he has certainly ended up on the Teddy Boy spectrum!
Inspired by Malcolm Mclaren and ‘The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle’ he formed his first band The Stupid Babies in 1979 when he was 11, with a release on Fast Product Records "Babysitters”.
Fast forwarding to three decades down the line spent in the nightspots of the world providing sci-fi beats for hedonists, and even longer as a consumer of all the best sounds from glam rock to grime, Adam is now spurting all his creative juice into his Cyberbilly alter-ego SONNY ERIKSSON - a self-styled Teddy Boy Timelord armed with a laptop and a mean Gretsch guitar, while swaggering down the information superhighway to source the most rockin' elements from 1955-2025. Fusing rockabilly and psychobilly styles with the hypnotic, strange and robotic sounds of today and beyond....
