POWERSOLO (DK) – Donkey Punk on tour

POWERSOLO is a rock and roll band which formed in 1996 in Aarhus, Denmark by Vocalist/Guitarist Kim “Kix” Jeppesen. Their sound- termed by the band as “Donkey Punk” is characterized by an often frantic and raucous blend of Garage, Punk, Psychobilly, Surf, and World Music. Never a band to be put into one box, these influences bounce back-and-forth on every record, displaying the groups versatility, whilst still always carrying a retro-rock vibe to all of their compositions. Ace!

THE OUTCASTS (NIR) – on a short trip

In early 1977, a band of brothers became just that: a band. Sick of not being allowed into clubs – and getting barred from five in one week – because of the way they looked, three brothers and a few friends became a clique known as The Outcasts. Within months, they were one of the hottest bands on the emerging Belfast punk scene.
A band that still wants it and gets it. Great to watch live with probably their best years still ahead of them, this band is a legend and a true punkrock unit that wont retire any time soon.
The current line up of the band consists of Originals Greg Cowan on bass and vocals and Martin Cowan on guitar; Buck Defect on guitar and JP ‘Dear Boy Moonie’ on drums are the newbies.

THE YUM YUMS – POPPING UP AGAIN

LOOK OUT! One of Europe’s longest standing power-pop / pop-punk / good-time-rock’n’roll-bands has once again decided to launch a new album on us! They will also take their sugar-filled show on the road, and will be rippin’ it up at a place near YOU!
THE YUM YUMS started in 1993 and they wanted to put a little sunshine and fun back in rock’n’roll by combining the classic sounds of The Ramones, The Beat, The Rubinoos, The Real Kids with the sound of their heroes at the time: The Devil Dogs, The Vacant Lot, Psychotic Youth… and top it off with sprinkles of 60’s girlgroups, surf and even a little bit of 70’s glam.

After some 7″ singles, The Yum Yums released their debut album Sweet As Candy. The album was released on several labels around the world, and received raving reviews! In Norway, the album even got nominated for a Grammy for best rock album. Didn’t win, though…
And their new album «Poppin’ Up Again!» will be released for their spring tour in 2024!

Supersuckers – on another Euro tour

The greatest rock and roll band in the world, the Supersuckers, were founded in 1988 and released their first album “The Smoke of Hell” in 1992 on Seattle’s Sub Pop label. Having arrived on Steamhammer over time, the band’s 13th album, “Play That Rock ‘n’ Roll”, was released in 2020.
After excursions into the cowboy and country realms in recent years, they have returned with snotty rawk ‘n’ roll, with a raised middle finger and the typical Supersuckers sound – a bit of country and a lot of Motörhead.
Now traveling as a trio, they will also delight fans with a European tour in 2024. Songs from the last album, old classics and one or two country songs are part of the program. And lots of coolness.

If you don’t like the Supersuckers, you don’t like Rock-N-Roll.
-Lemmy Kilmister from Motörhead
