210 (RUS) – on tour!

210 is an Antifascist hardcore band from Moscow, Russia. Formed in 2009 by members of bands like Razor Bois, Old Style Values, Feeding The Fire and Maskit, 210 soon became the voice of the militant Antifascist scene in Russia. The band was named after the infamous Law #210 of a Russian Criminal Code which the authorities usually employ to prosecute Antifascist activists. One of the core principles of the band was to use its music to collect funds in support of jailed Antifascists and the victims of Nazi attacks.
The band developed its own style of aggressive skinhead hardcore with angry lyrics dedicated to Antifascist struggle, working class pride, street fights, rugby, football, martial arts and unity. The straightforward message of 210 gained it many enemies, especially among Neo-Nazis who attempted to physically attack the band numerous times. But despite all the problems with the authorities and boneheads the position of the band still remains the same: strong opposition to any forms of fascism and discrimination and call for international friendship!
210 has released 3 albums: “First Blood”( 2009) ,“Not One Step Back”(2010) and Generation (2014) and played countless shows across Russia, Ukraine and Belarus – most of them were benefit events in support of the Antifa movement. Check them out in April 2018!

Since 2016 the girls have also been releasing their own original material. Their debut EP ‘You Asked For It’ is out now via their website and iTunes and in September 2017 they launch their debut album ‘First World Problems’!

LOMBEGO SURFERS – on tour with a brand new album!

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.
And the band just released their brand new album “HEADING OUT” as LP/CD (2018, Flight 13 Records) which you gotta grab at one of their shows! No excuses!

Kurt Baker Combo – on tour!

After many years playing up and down, coast to coast, over the pond and beyond with his group The Leftovers, and solo group The Kurt Baker Band, rock n’ roller power pop musician Kurt Baker decided he needed a new change of scenery and packed his bags for the city of Madrid, Spain. Landing there in 2013, the Kurt Baker Combo was formed.
While continuing in the tradition of the power pop sound Baker has been known for, the Combo also brings in elements of Pub Rock, Garage and no holds bar wild rock n’ roll a la The MC5, The Remains, Eddie and the Hotrods and Redd Kross.
The group presented their first full length in 2015, a live album titled “Muy Mola Live”. In the summer of 2015, the group began to prepare songs for their first studio full length “In Orbit” released on Little Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records in the fall of 2016. By October 2017, the band was ready to recored their follow up LP for Wicked Cool records, titled “Let’s Go Wild”. A combination of all things fun and rock n’ roll, the album sees the Combo explore and expand on their many influences. “Let’s Go Wild” will be released on May, 18th 2018, with the first single “So Lonely” out on March 30th.
And the band is constantly touring all over the world since then. And they will be back touring in April 2018 again. Don’t miss your chance!

THE FLESHTONES (USA) – SUPER ROCK at its best!

The Fleshtones are one of the most active playing American garage rock bands ever. They are from Queens, New York and were formed in 1976. Their musical influences are rooted in the Rock’n’ Roll music from the 1950s and 1960s.
Their first hit single was the song “American Beat”. Their debut album “Roman Gods” hit the US album charts in 1978.
Since 1987, Keith Streng, Peter Zaremba, Bill Milhizer and the only new guy in the band, bassplayer Ken Fox who joined the band in 1990, constantly release new albums and tour the world.
In September 2016 The Fleshtones released their 21st album called “The band drinks for free” (Yeproc) to celebrate their 40th band anniversary.
And in April 2018 they are back on the road with their new album “Budget Buster” (Oct 2017) [LP/MP3 (YepRoc)], a compilation of all their b-sides and rarities they’ve put out over the last ten years, many of which are out-of-print and difficult to find, plus two tracks that have never seen the light of day! Not to mention, Budget Buster arrives on explosive red and yellow splatter vinyl!
