FANG IS BACK! That’s right! The former original bass player and singer for the 60’s rock legends PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS, Phil “Fang” Volk, is making a stunning comeback on the musical landscape with a powerful new CD entitled: FANG REVERES THE RAIDERS. You guessed it. Fang is going back to his roots and paying tribute to his old band with his new band, FANG & THE GANG. That’s not all. Fang is writing new material that’s also included in this package, along with 5 bonus tracks that will rock your socks off. In all the CD includes 18 tracks.

According to former original manager of the Raiders, ROGER HART, “...this is possibly the best remake of the Raider discography that I’ve ever heard. Same hits, different voice – Same songs, different millenium. Here’s the “other voice” of the Raiders – the other “teen idol” if you will. Phil’s voice is powerful & convincing. His bass playing bridges the years since the originals were released, giving these new tracks a unique yet haunting kinship and familiarity.

His band lives up to the daunting task of capturing the spirit of the old hits, then takes them to a new and exciting level that, frankly, has never been heard before.” In a nutshell: “FANG STRIKES BACK!” His band ROCKS!
Fang & the Gang
THESE ARE ALL NEW RECORDINGS, never heard before, embracing the spirit and glory days of 60’s rock, but the substance and spin of the new millenium. Here’s a genuine garage band rocker who refuses to get old. Fang still sounds like a kid, and his bass chops are second to none in this rock genre. It’s only rock & roll, but don’t underestimate the message: this is real music, made by real musicians, playing their own instruments – TOGETHER! Consider this: In the mid 60’s & early 70’s the Raiders garnered 16 hit singles and 7 gold albums, and were seen everyday on Dick Clark’s TV show “Where The Action Is.” Add to that The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show, The Smothers Brothers Show, Hullabaloo, and even Batman, and you begin to see a musical legacy where Phil “Fang” Volk played an integral part. This new CD could easily be considered essential listening for those who beleive that the rock & roll of the 60’s is the foundation for most of the music we’re hearing today. Fang was there, living it, working it and creating the framework for those who would follow. Here’s a true pioneer of rock & roll re-inventing himself by recording some of the most compelling and memorable songs of that early rock era. You won’t be disappointed. This is the real deal, and it’s about time someone stepped up to the plate and hit a grand slam for the “boomers” with 18 fabulous new rock tracks that will make you feel young again. New listeners will be quick converts when they hear this rock legend at work...FANG FOLLOWERS UNITE! IT’S TIME TO ROCK!!!
