From Burning Heart Newsletter: World, put your helmet on and get ready for the weekend!
From the number one oil nation up north, Chris Summers, Happy Tom, Hank Von Helvete, Euroboy, Pl Pot Pamparius and Rune Rebellion are back to sprinkle their new album “PARTY ANIMALS” over the world.
Whether they suit you or not the Norwegian death punks has made one hell of a punk rock record to follow-up on the comeback album “Scandinavian Leather” (2003).
“Most rock’n’roll bands start as a riot but end up as a parody. We started up as a parody but ended up as a revolution”Happy-Tom, 2005.
“We got 11 hits, all of them beautifully negative switchblade serenades” Euroboy, 2005.
Yeah, it’s been a long time coming since Turbonegro started shaking up the punk scene in Oslo in the late 80’s. A brief history of time: Legendary punk album “Ass Cobra” (96) gave them instant fame on the worldwide underground punk scene, “Apocalypse Dudes” (98) was the last great rock album of the 90s, and then there was the infamous tale of vocalist Hank Von Helvete collapsing in the emergency
ward of a mental institution in Milano in 1998, leading to the break up of what used to be the unstoppable punk rock juggernaut Turbonegro.
Four years later, in 2002, a reunited Turbonegro played their biggest shows ever at Scandinavian and German festivals, performing for over 100.000 enthusiastic Turbojugends. The band then signed to Swedish label Burning Heart, and released the highly anticipated album “Scandinavian Leather”, complete with artwork from
legendary “Revolver”-designer Klaus Voorman. A US tour with Queens Of The Stone Age proved that the American Turbojugend contingent had grown completely out of control, and almost 150 shows later, Turbonegro finished the “Scandinavian Leather” campaign by selling out the House Of Blues in Los Angeles two days in a row in December 2004.
Now, people, its 2005, and Turbonegro must be called the worlds biggest underground rock band. Get ready for the best rock album you’ll ever fall in love with: the dark, beautiful, catchy and dangerous punk rock epic that is “Party Animals”.
