BERLIN BLACKOUTS (D)

This is Punk Rock … it started in late fall 2014. Since then two albums were released on LP, CD and MC, mostly sold out. They also released a split-7” with “Gang Zero” on a Swiss Label (Lux Noise) and in ‘19 they put out a split-7” with the canadian band Streetlight Saints. The current full-length “NASTYGRAM SEDITION” followed November ‘19. All physical copies (MC/CD/LP) were sold out by summer 2020. “Anticap. Messiah” and “Imagination” (video clips can be found on youtube) are the first two singles from “NASTYGRAM SEDITION”. The third single “Make Punk Rock Great Again”; a 5-track-EP on limited 12” Vinyl will come out January ’21, the video is already available on youtube. The line-up was changing constantly, they started as a 5-piece and it’s only Bev (vocals, guitar) and Katja (bass, vocals) left as originals. Since 2019 the new drummer Chris Kotze is gunning the engine as if they just started yesterday, since 2020 Timi Tribiani is slinging the lead guitar. Punk Rock explains their entire world. Mid-tempo songs with a pissy mood about the state the whole world’s in. Melodies against slavery, harmonies against Gleichschaltung. Their “The last few years are too precious to waste ‘em. Use your brain – it’s not forbidden yet.”- attitude runs like a golden thread through all their doing. If you like it rough and real and can’t get enough of stuff like Sex Pistols, Ramones and The Clash, you’re damn right with those guys. About 200 shows are to their credit so far … A rerelease of their first record “Bonehouse Rendezvous” came out August 2020 on their home label Wanda-Records. Album number 4 was entirely recorded in December 2020, has no title and no release date yet.
