2018 was a turbulent year, and our drummer troubles continued in 2019. By March, we had to realize that another change was necessary. We were in a tough situation with a strict deadline to record 2 songs for Cleopatra Records and get ready for important gigs. Luckily, Danny came to the rescue and he even turned out to be able to book gigs, which was a much needed superpower in this band.
In August, we released Come Back Joe Strummer, a fundraiser song for the Joe Strummer Foundation, who even shared the song on their website.
2018 has turned quite good despite being our most turbulent year ever. After 18 years, we had to change drummer. Twice. But we survived. (See more about this here.)
We’ve released 4 new songs. We shot an official video for Happy New Year (see below), while Paranoia, Panic, Propaganda and Need Your Brain got mash-up videos. (Green Light, Blue Lambo will get a video too, don’t worry, we just need to catch up.)
Paranoia, Panic, Propaganda has made it to two official Spotify playlists, New Punk Tracks and Punk Unleashed. Our songs got airplay on punk and alternative radio shows in Germany, Spain, the UK and Canada. The Hungarian version of Creepy Stalker has been played in rotation on Budapest-based radio station Magyar FM.
We played 9 gigs this year with 3 different drummers. We returned to Munich in December and played the best venues in Budapest, including playing to a crowd of over 1,000 people supporting major indie act Péterfy Bori & Love Band at Budapest’s Barba Negra club.
We already have some shows booked for 2019, as well as more new songs to record that will eventually be released together with recent tracks as our 5th album. Stay with us! Happy New Year!
A lot of good things happened to us in 2017, here’s a brief summary.
We came out with 6 new songs this year. Endless Halloween was featured on Cleopatra Records’ Punk Rock Halloween compilation alongside bands like the Dwarves, Reel Big Fish, UK Subs, Vibrators, Calabrese, Guttermouth and many others. This release means a lot to us. (We were also part of Cleopatra’s Punk Rock Christmas comp in 2015, but that was not an original song but a Cheap Trick cover – which has gathered 18K plays on Spotify since then.)
Sid & Nancy Do NYC got featured on Spotify’s official New Punk Tracks playlist among the most important punk releases of August.
The video of Happy Birthday, which we released the year before, exploded on YouTube in 2017, getting over half a million views and becoming our most viewed video. (Never underestimate the power of tits!) Continue reading →
For us, 2014 started with the release of War and Peace, which ended up as our most popular track on Soundcloud so far, and its Hungarian version got a high number of spins on local radio stadions. Continue reading →
