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!

GRINDHOUSE – craziness from Melbourne!

In 2014 Melbourne garage rock’n’roll band Grindhouse was born. Heavily influenced by heavy hitting Aussie proto punk forefathers The Saints and Radio Birdman, Grindhouse forged its reputation with influences from Australian production cars and a high octane proto punk sound.
Grindhouse, thats four sexually misguided punk rock outlaws on a mission to deliver low down, cheap seats dirty garage rock action at all costs.
With three studio albums under the belt and having worked with Steven McDonald (The Melvins, OFF! and Redd Kross) on recording and production for the most recent long players, Crazy Pussy and Can I Drive Your Commodore. The boys are set for a blistering 2019, with Melbourne garage label Off the Hip on board, Grindhouse are set to deliver album number four. They’re hard, they’re dumb and they’re fast… but are you ready?

RAMONAS on tour in July!

As the name suggests The Ramonas are an all female tribute to the iconic New York Punk Rock band Ramones. Originally conceived back in 2004 with multiple different lineups, The Ramonas have evolved into a fully fledged, razor sharp live band in their own right! Touring, Touring is never boring and these girls are guaranteed to play high energy, full throttle one hour shows that’ll leave you buzzing for more of that 1976 spirit. These four lovable cretins rarely even stop for a quick sip of water and a hello…. It’s 1234 and they’re onto the next hit, and the great thing is that they do it all in their own unique way…. wherever they play, from the UK to Europe to the USA!
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’ !
In July 2019 The Ramonas will be bringing together a live set combining the very best of the Ramones back catalogue combined with their own high-energy original material. RAMONAS GO MENTAL will be a relentless and explosive show that will have you singing along from start to finish!

HEAVYBALL from England on the road!

Heavyball are a self titled “new tone” 4 piece band originally from Nottingham; formed in 2011. They describe their sound as ‘new tone’, a modern interpretation of two tone and ska.
Influences include Viz, Shane Meadows and the story writing traditions of country and western.
Their second album „When Can You Start?“ was released November 1st 2017. It recounts a week in the life of an ordinary office worker. The diary of a nobody who represents everybody. He doesn’t know it, but this week is different. Because this week is his last on earth. Storytelling, humour and everyday observations wrapped up in sharp melodies.
An extraordinary band you shouldnt miss!
