“WHY I LOVE THESE BANDS” – a personal reflection on why I think all these bands are awesome, by Jimmy Trash.
Friends for my entire Berlin life, I’ve seen this band evolve into maturity, putting together smarmy and creative songwriting with pure rock and roll abandon and spirit. One of the few modern German garage groups who have proven to have popularity outside of the country while still singing in German, and have excelled themselves with their latest record and a host of killer film clips.
Ever since I was a teenager, I loved the DICTATORS. And, ever since I was 22, I loved New Jersey’s HOME BLITZ. Well, this is a New Jersey band that sounds like the Dictators with a bit of hippy psych invested in the sound that Manitoba probably would have hated, plus the singer was in HOME BLITZ, and I’m gonna have to show him my HOMEBLITZ tattoo which is pretty embarrassing. SUPER GOOD ROCK AND ROLL.
KRISTY AND THE KRAKS
OH MY GOD! DREAM BAND! These two Vienna girls sound like a doowop version of The Shaggs, with lotsa fuzz and singalong fun. I’ve been to Vienna, and the girls have to be SLY there, and that’s the only reason I have for their AMAZING sound. CHECK IT.
These Italians jumped on the bandwagon as a late inclusion, but Italian psych garage rockers have been some of my best drinking buddies in the past and their shit seems really tight, I’d say they fit the family perfectly….
Wildcard entry, supercute videogame music, allstar members of Batalj, ZHOD, PISS, Grinni and the Grinsters.
We will update you with how many tickets left!
DON’T BE LAZY, BUY NOW!
