ECKE'S CONTRA-PUNKROCK CORNER #98 engl. Version
Back with another issue of the CONTRA NEWS CORNER!
Neverending Story: The Oi! Sampler which is compiled by Garry Bushell is in it's final stage. Sometimes I believe in miracles! At the moment we are trying to come up with a special gimmick for the first customers, maybe we will announce more about this next week!
The DROOGIEZ / LAZY BASTARDS split single is also ready in the next weeks:
DROOGIEZ / STOMPER 98 Bass Player Lars Resort - nice Shirt!
The next album by australian street punk kings MARCHING ORDERS will be released sometime in mid-2012, but the boys are working on new songs! we are looking forward to it, maybe there will be a 7" before…who knows…
The spain compagneros from SECRET ARMY will also coin a new album, which has most of the songs written. The album will be in stores early 2012. the boys also want to conquer europe in early 2012. If you wanna set up a show with the boys from barcelona, drop us a line!
We got a message from JOHNNY WOLGA, who is actually lives in Manchester, UK. He was attending a show from THE SPECIALS, where he was on the V.I.P. list because the bouncer had commission with JOHNNY because of his small size. He enjoyed the show, although he could not see the stage (because of his small size) and told us that he got an offer to play Gollum at the next movie by Peter Jackson. Besides this, the vinyl version of JOHNNY WOLGA's Debut-Album should be available during the next few days!
One of our next releases will be the debut-7" of the side-project of TEMPLARS guitarist French Chris, named PROWLER. I promise a rough Skinhead-masterpiece!
Do you remember a band called THE POVERTY BAY SAINTS? Their Drummer Kenny joined our label band NOI!SE. Another switch on drums: New in DOG COMPANY: Ron Riot, formerly of RIOT SQUAD and THE STAGGERS!
We also have a new band on the Contra band rooster: Please welcome HOUNDS AND HARLOTS from San Francisco! They will be releasing their debut album on our label, maybe there will be a teaser before….stay tuned!
RECOMMENDED RECORD OF THE WEEK:
Some of you may have recognized our fable for the italian glam-rockers of GIUDA, the record of the week is the last 7" of their former band TAXI
Speaking of GIUDA, this brilliant band joined the line up for 2012 issue of Berlin's Punk & Disorderly Festival beside such great bands as THE GONADS, INFA RIOT and HAVE NOTS.
The festival season in germany is over, but after the festival season is before the festival season, here are the first confirmed dates:
+++ 17./18. Februar, Oberhausen: SON OF A BASTARD FESTIVAL +++ 13.-15. April, Berlin: PUNK & DISORDERLY FESTIVAL +++ 20./21. Juli, Glaubitz: BACK TO FUTURE FESTIVAL +++ 9.-11. August, Torgau: ENDLESS SUMMER OPEN AIR
New at our shop: We are now offering the brand "Spirit of 69", please take a look:
The headlining band for next years Rebellion festival will be none other than RANCID. We hope for some more shows in Europe! Rebellion also just confirmed our label mates of BOOZE & GLORY. The creativity of the RANCID guys is unbelievable, so Frontman TIM ARMSTRONG will set up a "Punkrock Musical" under the name of "TIM TIMEBOMB". Starting the 21st of october on the internet channel VEVO. In part 1 we see band mate LARS FREDERIKSEN and AFI singer DAVEY HAYVOK. Some other well known faces will be added soon in the next issues!
Yesterday with Dr.Martens & Fred Perry, now starring in a musical: LARS FREDERIKSEN
The side project of LARS FREDERIKSEN, THE OLD FIRM CASUALS will do a split 7" with an new german band called INSANE DOGS. This is the new band of STOMPER 98 singer Sebi. STOMPER 98 will be on a german tour next month along with THE RUCKERS, THE LAST RESORT and EVIL CONDUCT. There will be an new STOMPER 98 album out in mid 2012 and a small tour of the OLD FIRM CASUALS with STOMPER in early 2012.
WALLS OF JERICHO joined the Persistence Tour along with bands such as TERROR and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES
Carlo, formerly the bass player in DISCIPLINE just joined MELANIE AND THE SECRET ARMY. There were some rumors that DISCIPLINE had a (hidden?) show somewhere in western germany last weekend with the singer of HARDSELL on vocals…
Hostage Records, which is probably the 2nd best label in the world besides Contra, just announced that they will release a new BONECRUSHER 7" with original singer Raybo on vocals. But who knows, it's BONECRUSHER….
There will be a show of our friends form ON THE JOB this weekend in Delitzsch:
