LOS PEPES – on tour with a new single

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 seven years now Los Pepes have been putting out records and touring the UK and Europe as a relentless DIY operation.
Their new sinlge just got released on Wanda Records. And they are gonna be on tour again!

LOMBEGO SURFERS on tour

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.
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».

30 years of Total Chaos (USA)

30 years ago (Sept.-Oct. 1989) in Pomona Valley, CA was the birth of Total Chaos. Total Chaos along with many others started organizations such as- UVP (United Valley Punks), OCP (Orange County Peace Punks) and AGC (Alternative Gathering Collective)- holding social events like – Food Not Bombs – giving support to the Big Mountain Indian Reservation and helping to open the Los Angeles Anarchist Center.
The idea of social responsibility was a significant thing- from organizing peace punk picnics- to protesting against the Gulf War- their music had meaning and stood for something.
In 1991 Total Chaos recorded their first demo. In the summer of 1995 the band does their first European tour- which was bigger than anyone expected- with sold out gigs all across Europe- ending up at the legendary Chaos Days in Hanover, Germany.
The rest is history.
Today TOTAL CHAOS has seen many things come and go – but they have stuck to these ideals all this time.
Their last two albums, „World Of insanity“, 2016, and „Street punx“, EP 2017, are both again released by Total Chaos Frontman Rob’s own label Chaos-SOS records.
In 2019 the band will be back touring and celebrating their 30th anniversary!! Come join the party!
