Let’s start the new year with this nice collection of butt rocket fails. Does the soundtrack sound familiar? It should.
2010 is almost over, time to sum up our annual achievements.
Concerts: We played only 10 gigs this year,which is a negative record, even if the Stustaculum gig in Munich was one of the best moments of our history. We’ll need to improve this next year, and with a Czech mini-tour already booked for January, hopefully we’ll be more active in 2011.
Videos: We came up with 5 videos this year (Koheed & Kembra, All Day In The Car, Wave Of Bankruptcy, Agony Bay, Sidewinder), which is a positive record. They’ve got a total of about 13,000 views so far on BlankTV and our YouTube channel, which is not a lot, but not too bad either.
Songs: We haven’t written any new songs since Razor Wires And Neon Lights, which is a shame. We should definitely come up with something next year.
Website: We’ve launched the new WordPress-based website, and now we have about 5 times more daily visitors than before. We should have done this earlier, but better late than never.
So that was 2010 for us. Now let’s move on to a more eventful 2011…
Updating the lyrics of classic punk rock songs to reflect on current events usually doesn’t work. As for the Dead Kennedys, MP3 Get Off The Web was nothing short of a disaster, but Jello trying to adapt California Über Alles to Schwarzenegger at recent live gigs wasn’t the pinnacle of his creativity either. The good news is that the lyrics won’t have to be changed any more as the original protagonist, Jerry Brown will be back in office from January. Continue reading
We’ve compiled a bunch of classic Christmas punk rock songs for you. Enjoy! Continue reading
Headliner.fm is a service enabling bands to send messages to other (similar) bands’ fan base on MySpace, Facebook and Twitter. You need “band bucks” to send promotion messages to other bands and you get band bucks when you accept posting other bands’ messages. The idea is good, the user interface is slick and easy to use, but currently the selection of punk and poppunk bands is quite limited and since we’d only post messages from bands that we like, we can only hope that more good bands will join soon. So, if your band is interested, sign up here.
