Archei and the Bunkers (Cleveland, USA /// Dirty Water)
+ TheMurderChord (NZ)
Archie and The Bunkers are an American rock’n’roll duo formed in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2013. The group consists of brothers Emmett (drum/vocals) and Cullen O’Connor (Organ/vocal). The pair began recording music in their basement self-producing their first 2 EPs (Comrade X. 2013, and Trade Winds, 2014.) The band’s raw garage punk sound draws heavily from Cullen’s melding of divergent musical styles. Influences range from jazz organ greats like Jimmy Smith, and Richard "Groove” Holmes, to punk icons Dead Boys, The Stooges, The Screamers, and more.On stage, the siblings attack their songs with an energy that whips the audience into a frenzy. The unique growl of Cullen’s whirring, overdriven organ and the driving beat of Emmett’s 4-piece drum kit, leave concert-goers in shock at the sonic assault levied by only two.
2015 marked the release of their first full-length album on Dirty Water Records. It’s 12 songs were recorded at the storied Ghetto Recorders in Detroit. Legendary producer/engineer Jim Diamond captured that unique Archie sound that’s been dubbed ‘HI-FI Organ Punk.’ Emmett describes their sound as, "rock’n’roll that’s been peeled back to it’s raw foundation.”
The band kicked off 2016 with a tour that spanned 7 countries. They also self-released a vinyl-only, 6-song EP titled, "Mystery Lover.”
Emmett plays exclusively cheap vintage Japanese drum kits and is endorsed by splintered drumsticks.
Cullen is endorsed by various organs and keyboards found on Craigslist.
God's America (Grindcore/HC, USA)
+ Cancer Clan (Grind/HC/Punk, Potsdam)
More than anything else, I like punk bands with personality and vision. I dig genre exercise bands when they are good at what they do (or genres that I like), but even more, I like bands that have their own informed and aware way of doing things. Bands that sound like they know what the fuck they're doing. GOD'S AMERICA is a great example of that, for kind of playing this middle road of grindcore, modern hardcore, and fast hardcore. They navigate these ideas to produce a totally seamless and cohesive vision of fast and brutal punk music, match that to their instantly recognizable aesthetic and you've got a GREAT band.
CANCER CLAN, unholy blast punk straight outta Potsdam Beach. Formed in 2005 out of the ashes of CRUDE BE. Toured europe with WEEKEND NACHOS. Released a couple of demos, one 7", one split 7" w/ OVERPOWER and one new LP on 7 Degrees/Merciless Records. Since 2016 teamed up with Sebi from 244GL on guitar.
Listener (US) + '68 (US)
Describing the group Listener, a few years ago, would have involved discussing two guys, a guitar, a macbook, and a washing machine; an explanation that would turn the head of even the most avante-guard fans of music. Listener has now evolved into a full fledged rock and roll power trio with vocalist Dan Smith playing bass and brass, guitarist Jon Terrey, and drummer Kris Rochelle pounding the skins as if the ghost of John Bonham haunted his dreams. With thought provoking stage banter, music that keeps your mind busy, and words that quickly take hold of your heart, Listener is a near perfect balance of what words and music are supposed to be.
If you have followed his prior bands, Norma Jean and The Chariot, you already know this. You have seen things set on fire, death-defying jumps from the rafters and swinging guitars that could take your head off if you were too close. Scogin spent more time in and on top of the crowd than on stage during their wild shows!
When ’68 became Scogin’s new mode of expression, one would think the chaos would die down. He might be too busy onstage to think about jumping around. The subversive element of ’68 became something more subtle… the attitude. There is clever repartee between Scogin and the audience, wild interplay between Scogin and his ’68 bandmate, Michael McClellan and music that will stun audiences of alt/indie rock and hard rock varieties.
ANARKIA TROPICAL Cumbia Punk (Chile)
Anarkia Tropikal wurde 2005 in Santiago de Chile geboren. Es heißt von vielen, dass sie die ersten waren, die Cumbia mit Punk mischten, aber das glauben sie selber nicht.
Diese Band mischt Afro-Amerikanische Klänge sowie psychedelische Cumbia, Cumbia Villera, kolumbianische Cumbia, Ska, Dub, Chicha, Salsa, mit anderen Rhythmen und Stilen wie Punk, Hardcore, Thrash Metal und sogar Rap.
Das Ergebnis ist eine Band voller Energie, Enthusiasmus und Freude, die Karneval und das soziale Engagement als Essenz in seinem Ganzen umfasst.
