The Rydells formed in 2001, from preaviously experiences with Torquemada (1998, Ramones addicted) and Hotel Mathaus (second half '90s, hardcore).
Their influences are like a blend of the powerful sounds of bands like Social Distortion, Ramones, Misfits and the energy of Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison and most of the rock'n'roll artists of the '50s and '60s; songs about girls, parties, rock'n'roll, but also about unsatisfaction, boredom and fighting against the everyday life.
During this years they've played with bands like Misfits, Manges, Peawees, Groovie Ghoulies, Huntingtons, Bad Luck Charms, thee S.T.P., Hormonauts, Miles Apart, Forty Winks, Los Fastidios, Retarded and so on.
In 2003 Be Nice To Mommy Records put out their first release, "Borin' days & borin' nights."; new ep "Loaded dice" - mixed by Herve' from the Peawees - out in spring 2006 on San Martin Records.
After some line-up changes, they came back with a new powerful record called "Vow to Defend" in 2008, out on Knowhere Records.
