DEAD BOYS EURO summer tour 2024

Formed in Cleveland in 1976, the Dead Boys were one of the first American acts to combine the proto-punk fervor of bands like the Stooges and the New York Dolls with a new level of intense energy. The 1977 debut LP, Young, Loud and Snotty was a landmark album in the birth of hardcore punk and produced one of the first great punk anthems, “Sonic Reducer.”
After one more album, the band split in 1979. They reunited for a few gigs in the 1980s, but following the death of lead vocalist Stiv Bators in 1990, the band members went their separate ways except for two brief reunions in 2004 and 2005. The return of the Dead Boys began with guitarist Cheetah Chrome.
“I’ve had my solo band for the last ten years, and Dead Boys songs have always been included in my shows and over time the right mix of people came together to pull off and at times enhance the Dead Boys sound.
A solid band that can interpret and deliver the performance and sound needed to maintain the authenticity of the Dead Boys.
I’ve been singing the Dead Boys songs myself for 20 years because I couldn’t find another singer I trusted enough to hand it to,” Chrome says.
“The first gig with Jake, it was like, ‘You got it, man!’ I think Stiv would be very proud of our choice.”

Cyanide Pills – „Soundtrack to the new cold war“

The Cyanide Pills may just be the greatest band in the world… Four full length albums and a live 10″ plus ten 7″ singles so far, the fourth full length album „Soundtrack to the new cold war“ got released on 4th of August 2023, on Damaged Goods again. Think of The Boys, Buzzcocks, The Briefs, Ramones and you are getting the idea.
They call themselves a bunch of dysfunctional misfits, outsiders, people with ‘baggage’ and untrustworthy losers. But they make a great sound, so forget this biog crap and go listen to them. It’s the only thing they do well!

The Turbo ACs (USA) celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album “Automatic”!

The Turbo ACs are back in Europe! And this time the band will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their 2003 album “Automatic,” which was produced by Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves. To mark this occasion, Concrete Jungle Records released a special remastered edition of this album on April 26, 2024.
The Turbo ACs was formed in the shabby alleys of New York City at the beginning of the 1990s. After releasing numerous EPs and sampler contributions on various labels, their debut album “Damnation Overdrive” came out in 1996 on the New York record label Blackout! Records and made big waves, especially in Europe. With the unmistakable voice of frontman Kevin Cole and elements of Dick Dale, Ramones, Misfits and Motörhead, they have been chosen as the favorite band of many rock and roll fans.

GUITAR GANGSTERS from London

Following Guitar Gangsters’ 35 the anniversary in 2023, the next chapter of the bands history is about to be written. 11 album releases and tours in 28 countries just isn’t enough! Guitar Gangsters continue to produce stunning live shows and new releases which remain true to their melodic punk roots – slices of suburban life, failed love, failed ambition and social politics packed into three- minute power punk gems.
In 2019 this London three piece became a four piece with the addition of Ed Sonsino on guitar – the big sound got even bigger! In a post pandemic 2022, Guitar Gangsters made a return with the release of their 11th studio album, “Fortune Favours The Brave” and gigged throughout 2022 in UK and Europe. 2024 sees the release of the vinyl EP “The Faithful”, the title track for which is a salute to all those that have found punk to be the place where they belong. To mark the 35th anniversary of the release of the band’s first album “Prohibition”, a new vinyl live studio session performance will be released in May.
Guitar Gangsters will always stick proudly to their inspirational punk rock guns with more than just a hint of rock’n’roll attitude. With a formidable back catalogue and a swagger that is only achieved through years of experience, there’s never been a better time to see this band live and to be part of the next chapter.
