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!
The Season’s upon us and we have the visuals for it. After so many mash-ups, we’ve decided to shoot an official music video featuring a Sexy Nurse, a Bloody Surgeon, a Full Plaster Cast Patient and Death. It turned out good, just check it!
We have a brand new year-end punk rock party anthem with a touch of Celtic influence. It’s called Happy New Year. It’s available on all major digital stores like Spotify as well as Bandcamp.
We’ll shoot a video for it next week.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome our new drummer, Greg! He’s been the drummer of Dorog city skatepunk heroes Link-X since the beginning, while also serving time in bands like Macskanadrág and Kötelező Közhelyek. We’ll record two new songs with him 3 weeks from now.
In the early years we had to change drummers quite often. We started out with Peter, then came Tibor, who was soon replaced by Attila. Attila played the drums on our first album Listen, and he helped us out a few times later as replacement drummer. He’s currently the drummer of Ghymes, a renowned world music band.
From Nov 2000 to May 2018, we had the pleasure to have Shorty in the band. He was the definitive Bankrupt drummer, who contributed a lot to our sound. We’d have never wanted to play with any other drummer if it was up to us, but after 18 years, he decided in May that he’d leave the band. His last gig with us was on the A38 boat in Budapest.
Then we found Will, the ideal replacement. A really cool, easy-going young guy and a solid punk rock drummer. It would have worked out perfectly, but unfortunately, Will dived into a home construction project that consumed all his time and energy so he had to leave us in October. His last gig with us was an amazing show at the Robot in Budapest.
Fortunately, we have managed to find another really good drummer, who’s such a fast learner that he already knows our set list, and we’ve already booked studio time with him to record one or two new songs in November. So who’s this guy? We’ll announce his name very soon, stay tuned 🙂
