LOMBEGO SURFERS (CH) – on the road

Trends often wash new bands to the shore only to drown them again with the next wave. But not The Lombego Surfers. For over twenty years now, the three rockers from Boston and Basel have sailed through Europe. They have never been bothered with current trends, following only the Jolly Roger flags painted on their bones by Dirk Bonsma. There often is no gold where they land. A cask of rum, whisky or beer is reason enough for the trio to start a hearty surf’n’roll mutiny. Too sweaty, raw and dirty? Eat shit and die!
Armed with guitar, bass and drums they grapple every place, from cities to the country, for which reason the press has recently called them «legends of passion» or «The Gods of the underground». Ooohh, spooky – but not unmerited. In times when other cult bands like Dead Moon strike sail, the Lombegos’ mission becomes ever more important: keep it real and stripped down to the bones!
And they have a new record for you, HEADING OUT LP/CD (2018, Flight 13 Records), available at the merch table.

SKA SKA SKA – DISTEMPER – on tour!!

Distemper are one of the oldest active and well-known ska-punk bands of Russia. The band started in 1989 as a hardcore punk band. But with the time they integrate a brass section in the band and their style changed into ska-punk. Today Distemper play very good danceable ska-punk. The emphasises is on both styles in the same time. Fast powerful punk rhythms are in a perfect unity with danceable ska elements. The hoarse singing and the russian language give the songs supplementary charme. The band released 15 albums, 7 of which have been published in Germany. After some changes in the line-up the band consist of drums, bass-guitar, guitar, trumpet, saxophone and trombone. Especially because of their great live performance Distemper is now not only well-known in Russia.

LOS PEPES FROM LONDON ON TOUR!

A power pop explosion and strict rock and roll combo, thats this international operation based in London, called Los Pepes.
Los Pepes formed in London late 2012. Cooked up by Ben Perrier and Seisuke Nakagawa. They were brought together by a mutual love for forgotten 45s from the 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond. Starting life as a fast “Testors-esq” high-energy punk rock operation, Los Pepes have quickly evolved into something else where melody is the priority and punk is the delivery. For three years now Los Pepes have been putting out records and touring the UK and Europe as a relentless DIY operation.
Their new record “Lets go” was released in April 2017 on Wanda Records. And in 2018 they are gonna be on tour again!
