The Spamabilly Borghetti

Monday, January 11th, 2010


The Spamabilly Borghetti are a rockabilly/psychobilly/rock’n’roll combo from Mutonia, near S. Arcangelo di Romagna. They stand apart from other acts in the same genre by several important factors. Mainly, the heavy influence of salsa, swing and country offset by what must be a serious case of dementia.

In their own words:

Everyone of their follow a personal project , derived from their capacity to enliven in gaudy way their performances with mechanical drags, burning robots, the components painted from the head to foots or the most of times improvising strip-tease with the involvement of people in profusion of beer and others incredible situations, leaving an indelible trace in the heart of fans

The thing I really like about their music is that when you first hear it, it sounds the way a radio does when its picking up two signals at the same time. It’s like everybody in the band is playing the same song, but somehow what comes out has been warped, beaten, and abused. The result is what I imagine the sound would be if you inserted a Buddy Holly record in an alleycat’s ass, stretched it across a turntable with furry handcuffs, and used it’s teeth as the needle. In other words, good music.

From hangover records:

Spamabilly born on spring ’93 in Mutonia, near S. Arcangelo di Romagna. They play a fabulous mix of rock ‘n’ roll and psychobilly, but they are distinguishable by country, swing and salsa influences and by his dementia. Spamabilly have played very numerous concerts all over Italy and in Switzerland, France, Croatia, England and Scotland. Everyone of their follow a personal project , derived from their capacity to enliven in gaudy way their performances with mechanical drags, burning robots, the components painted from the head to foots or the most of times improvising strip-tease with the involvement of people in profusion of beer and others incredible situations, leaving an indelible trace in the heart of fans. Now two members of this band play in Los Bovaros (crazy psycho-rockabilly) !!! they quit to play in 1999 and they still remain one of the most greatest band live for his mechanical robots on stage and also for his naked party full of beer and insanity funny fiesta !!!!

Shit Grinder

Sunday, January 10th, 2010


They’ve been described, by themselves, as ‘three bored retards making noise in a garage.‘ The groundbreaking Shit Grinder turtle headed an intense new form of music, a sinister combination of grindcore and fast hardcore which has come to be known as Grind Poop. Influenced by the sounds of Cryptic Slaughter, Napalm Death, Bathtub Shitter, Assuck, Vomit for breakfast, Spazz, Repulsion, Gauze, and Nausea, this new music was destined for…failure.

Unfortunately for the world the short-lived grind poop movement has become not only irregular, but completely constipated. It seems no amount of laxative will flush their creative juices again. When asked what brought about this strained decision the band refused comment, replying only with the ominous statement, “we are no longer a band, its dead. we were horrible anyways. don’t message us about shows, we wont be playing any.”

If you want to relive the glory and magnificence of this Virginia Beach outfit you can still hear memorable compositions such as Poo Poo Vagina VS Retro Hippie and Shit Storm of X on their official site:

HAMBURG RAMÖNES

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010


Originality is the key component which sets this groundbreaking group aside from the crowd. Their unique style, vision, and sound are completely new and destined to influence countless artists for generations to come. This new form of music, which I’ve named ‘punk rock,’ will undoubtedly change the face of modern music.

Rocking out of Germany, this band was founded in 2001 to play a wedding party. A few years later they released their debut album Free Phil Spectre, which not only galvanized their unique sound, but single handedly convinced a US jury to pardon Spectre of his murder charges, allowing him to walk away a free man.

In 2007 Axel and Hansi Ramone quit the band. They band recruited the legendary Jenzzzi Ramöne to fill in on bass duties and are still breaking new ground with the lineup of Tommy Ramöne (vocals), Ecki Ramöne(guitar), Marky Ramöne (drums), JayDee Ramöne (guitar).

The only way to get a true taste of these visionaries is to hear them. Since the music is impossible to describe, I recommend starting with their song Merry Christmas, which can be heard on their official myspace site (beware of imitators): http://www.myspace.com/hamburgramnes

Here comes another Christmas
Snow is falling down like kisses
All is come down on magic street.

Die Schlimme Band

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Die Schlimme Band (not to be confused with Die schlimmen Finger – a band full of pre-pubescent kids who play angstful power pop punk…or some such crap) roughly translates as The worst band. They are apparently a talent less group of drunkards who play awesome music and have the greatest logo ever.

Their recordings are reminiscent of what it would sound like if you were in a basement with your head in the toilet bowl, losing a stomach full of cheap draught and Jagermeister while Iggy Pop from 1971 was playing upstairs to a crowd full of angry Oompa Loompa’s. This band sings and performs in German, so I’ve had to rely on the google translator thing for the following information:
It all started with two drunks on two bar stools at the counter in a bar between gum machine and traffic lights in the Bielefeld west. Aus den zwei Barhockern wurden vier – und die standen plötzlich auf der Bühne! From the two bar stools, four – and suddenly stood on the stage! Dann kam noch ein Barhocker dazu – dann noch zwei – und irgendwann nach 2 Jahren wurde es zu eng, und die Schlimme Band musste das Lokal verlassen … Then came another bar stool will – then another two – and sometime after 2 years, it was too closely, and the worst band had to leave the restaurant …

Das ist lange her. That was long ago. Auf Hockern wird nur noch selten gesessen. On stools will only rarely sat still. Die Gitarren wurden Lauter. The guitars were louder. Der Sound Fetter und der Sänger Dünner. Bold and the sound of singers Thinner. Und es soll sogar schon Auftritte gegeben haben, wo man ganz, ganz hinten in der Ecke ein leises, verhuschtes Flüstern vernehmen konnte: „Wieso? And it should even have given performances, where you very, very backward in the corner a soft, whispering verhuschtes could hear: “Why? Die sind doch gar nicht so Schlimm!“ But they are not so bad! “

The worst band …
… ist eine Band voller Missverständnisse: is a band full of misunderstandings:
1. 1st Missverständniss: Der Gitarrist versteht den Sänger nicht weil der Schlagzeuger zu laut ist! Misunderstanding: The guitarist sees the singer not because the drummer is too loud!
2. 2nd Missverständniss: Der Sänger versteht den Schlagzeuger nicht weil der Bassist zu laut ist! Misunderstanding: The singer understands the drummer is not because the bass is too loud!
3. 3rd Missverständniss: Der Schlagzeuger versteht den Bassisten nicht weil der Sänger zu laut ist! Misunderstanding: The drummer not understands the bassist because the singer is too loud!
4. 4th Missverständniss: Nacher haben alle blaue Flecken – und das versteht dann nur der Gitarrist! Misunderstanding: After all the bruises – and then only understands the guitarist!
