The Del Lords

The Del Lords

The Del-Lords are an American rock and roll band that formed in New York City in 1982, founded by The Dictators' guitarist Scott Kempner. The band combined elements of 1960s garage rock with country, blues, and folk influences to become one of the initial progenitors of urban-roots-rock. The band members were: Scott Kempner, Manny Caiati, Eric Ambel, and Frank Funaro.

History
Though praised by critics as one of the best rock bands of the 1980s, the group was derailed by label mismanagement and a Catch-22 situation at radio. Modeled on British bands of the 1960s that used several singers – The Kinks, Beatles, The Who - Kempner's vision was to create an act featuring four singers, that some said was like an "East Coast Beach Boys".

The band took its name from Del Lord, director of many early Three Stooges shorts. The four Del-Lords studio albums, released between 1984 and 1990 – Frontier Days, Johnny Comes Marching Home, 'Based on a True Story and Lovers Who Wander – were released on CD in 2008 by the American Beat label.
