MONSTER ZERO SUMMER MASH WAS THE BEST TIME EVER!
If you were there, you know I'm right! If you missed out, believe me. A mega cool pre-party, 15 bands in two days, burgers, beers, dancing, singing, friends from all over the place and a true celebration of the genre. Thanks to Otis, Edoné, all the bands and all the punkrockers for the best of times. Let's do it again sometimes, maybe in Madrid, 11/12 December?
NEW MUGWUMPS & RICCOBELLIS RECORDS IN THE HOUSE!
They have arrived! The new LP's and Cds by The Mugwumps and Riccobellis. Poppunk to the maximum, nothing but hits, Ramones obeyin', Euro style classics. You know the deal, get your copy before the other cool kids have it.
NEW RECORDS BY MIDRAKE, PONCHES AND RATCLIFFS OUT SOON!
It's a never ending stream of greatness, this Euro poppunk scene! At the moment we're waiting for the new records by the Ponches from Italia, the Ratcliffs from Austria and newcomer Midrake from Switzerland. Expect some fantastic new records for your collection.
ANDREA MANGES IS GOING TO HAWAII!
The Striped man is going back to his favorite island and here's what he has to say about it:
“I'll play a couple of solo shows as Andrea Manges. Backing band: Flamingo Nosebleed! The set will be one-third The Manges, one-third The Veterans and one-third cover songs. We're also going to be on the air in Hawaii on Oct. 4th! Guests of the radio show Home Grown Music Hour, at 6.00 pm on K-Rock 101.5 FM. Flamingo Nosebleed are going to raise some extra money to buy flight tickets with a merchandise special offer and a new song called "Radiation Love": https://flamingonosebleedpunk.bandcamp.com/merch”
DEECRACKS CHINA TOUR!
The boys from Austria just can't get enough of the road! From 11.9 till 3.10 they will be touring China for the very first time. Back on board is there Chines bassplayer Zhong, so he can translate and order beers for Matt. Transportation will be done by train, so Mike has hours of Gameboy fun ahead of him. Let's hope they don't get deported and show the Chinese how good Euro punkrock is. Dates in the shows section!
