THE FLESHTONES (USA) – SUPER ROCK at its best!
The Fleshtones are one of the most active playing American garage rock bands ever. They are from Queens, New York and were formed in 1976. Their musical influences are rooted in the Rock’n’ Roll music from the 1950s and 1960s.
Their first hit single was the song “American Beat”. Their debut album “Roman Gods” hit the US album charts in 1978.
Since 1987, Keith Streng, Peter Zaremba, Bill Milhizer and the only new guy in the band, bassplayer Ken Fox who joined the band in 1990, constantly release new albums and tour the world.
In September 2016 The Fleshtones released their 21st album called “The band drinks for free” (Yeproc) to celebrate their 40th band anniversary.
And in April 2018 they are back on the road with their new album “Budget Buster” (Oct 2017) [LP/MP3 (YepRoc)], a compilation of all their b-sides and rarities they’ve put out over the last ten years, many of which are out-of-print and difficult to find, plus two tracks that have never seen the light of day! Not to mention, Budget Buster arrives on explosive red and yellow splatter vinyl!
