Chelsea (UK) – on tour with a new record!

Legendary punk band Chelsea was formed in 1976 by front man Gene October. Spearheading the punk movement, their debut single ‘Right To Work’ was released in 1977 which brought the attention of the music press. Gene October was responsible for starting The Roxy Club in Soho where many of the early punk bands started playing and Chelsea began playing alongside the likes of The Clash, The Damned, The Police, Sham 69. Featuring in Derrek Jarman’s punk film ‘Jubilee’ Chelsea also featured on 2 John Peel sessions and the Old Grey Whistle Test at the BBC promoting their self titled first album.

After a succession of singles and release of a 2nd album Chelsea toured the U.K & America releasing their 3rd album ‘Evacuate’ in 1980. The Evacuate album saw them touring again in the U.S and in the U.K with Anti Nowhere League on the infamous ‘So What’ tour.

Through various line-up changes over 4 decades, October continued to tour with Chelsea releasing 17 singles and 10 studio albums to date. Their most recent album ‘Saturday Night Sunday Morning’ released in 2015 was hailed in the music press as one of their finest.

Celebrating their 40th anniversary with dates throughout 2016 many of the Chelsea albums have been re-issued on collectors limited colored vinyl. The release of Chelsea’s complete recordings feature in the new anthology box sets 1 – 3 which include demos, previously unheard tracks, a historical biography through the albums, pictures and lyrics to all the songs.
And in 2017 they will be back with a brand new album „Mission Impossible“.

SUPERSUCKERS (USA) – on tour!

Supersuckers started in 1988 and were originally signed to Seattle’s Sub Pop label where they released their debut punkrock album “The Smoke of Hell” in 1992. The group stayed with the label throughout the 1990’s until their final greatest hits release in 1999 “How the Supersuckers became the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll band in the World”. By then the band already changed their musical style from Punkrock to Country and RocknRoll.
Forming their own label Mid-Fi Recordings the band continued to release great albums up until 2015’s “Holdin’ the Bag”, their latest album.

FUZZY VOX – rocking around Europe

fuzzy-voxFuzzy Vox are a hook-heavy trio who’d easily pass for The Hives’ s younger French cousins. While there’s no doubt about the influence of garage-rock greats, their songs are full of the swinging beat of boogie-woogie and the boom of rockabilly bass. There’s street-punk gang vocals too, and even a few moody, heavy-rock numbers. The band is pushing a kind of power pop that’s heartfelt, but endearingly immature.
-No Landing Plan-, the latest Fuzzy Vox record, now out on Kidnap Records, is the american cruising life revisited, a teen baby-boomer way on a friday night on a low rider trip. Kids travelling from flipper to milk shake with the only hope to get laid and have a cool tune poping up on the radio. Garage Rock and Roll ahead of the time before punk and power pop. Blue-Eyed Soul when the radios were still segregationists.
The Fuzzy Vox as nobody would expect from a french power trio get their roots from the deep magic noise exactly where the youth, the fashion, the manners seem timeless and never change with no ending.
And now its time to send the band out to your favourite venue to get YOU going! Don’t miss these lovely boys at a town near you!
