The Rockin Vicars were based in Blackpool and were active from 1963 to 1968. They are widely know for being ‘Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister’ from Motörhead’s first professional band. They were originally called Reverand black and The Rockin Vickers but later abbreviated it to just Rockin Vicars.

Their shows saw them dress up as vicars and coupled with their entertaining live shows they were able to tour Europe as well as being very popular on the northern UK circuit.
Their last single was a cover of Dandy by The Kinks.
