“Autogramm is not afraid to show their influence and their influence is that exact point where Punk and New Wave merged in 1978. Taking the minimalist hooks from the Cars and the slightly sinister buzz of Tubeway Army, Autogramm crank out a catchy number that not only would fit right at home on an I love the ‘80s soundtrack, but would also put about half of the songs on that tape to shame.” – John Gentile, Punknews, NYC
“Considering how long this band have been going it’s incredible how much energy they still display when they play live. Frontman and lyricist Dick Lucas is still an absolute inspiration. Somehow he doesn’t seem to have aged a bit proving that the anarcho punk lifestyle is obviously good for your health. Incredible band.” – Caughtinthecrossfire.com

The Dizzy Brains from Madagascar will tour through Europe and play some great festivals this year! Don’t miss them.
The Dizzy Brains are a garage rock band, inspired by The Sonics, as there are many around the world, except for Madagascar, one of the poorest and most corrupt countries in the world and the birthplace of the quartet. Founded by two brothers, Eddy on vocals and Mahefa on bass, the group fights injustice, lack of possibilities and freedom restriction in the everyday life of the islanders. Their passion for life shines off during their concerts.
After almost 10 years of working on my own I am pleased to introduce my new co-worker Martha!
She starts working with five great bands, The Empire Strikes (Action Rock from Helsinki, Finland, video see below) and their friends Stacy Crowne (High Energy Rock’n’Roll from Cologne, Germany), The Gentlemens (Blues Garage Punkrock from Ancona, Italy), Grande Royale (High Energy Rock’n’Roll from Jönköping, Sweden) and The Dirty Denims (Rock/Hardrock from Eindhoven, Netherlands).
Please contact Martha, if you are interested in organizing a show.
Turbo Booking is proud to work with IDestroy. It’s no secret that the three girls love to play live and throw every last drop of energy into doing so. In their short time together they have nearly 200 gigs under their belt. From big stages such as Bristol Pride and Rebellion Festival to acoustic sessions for BBC introducing, Sofar Sounds and Glastonbury Festival, proving there’s not a single thing that can faze them. Their 2019 Europe tour guarantees to be a hell of a lot of fun and most importantly, loud!

This year started really bad. Jonny, the very talented P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. singer and former actor and vegan restaurant owner and above all the nicest guy you can imagine, died yesterday. He has certainly experienced a lot in his 33 years, but he died far too young. We will all miss you, Jonny.
“It is with heavy hearts and saddened minds that we announce the passing of our dear friend and singer Jonny Jewels, AKA Jon Paul Steuer. The addition of Jonny to our dysfunctional band family was one of the best choices that we have ever made, and he brought a much needed sense of fun and lightheartedness to everything we did. He was only with us for a little more than a year, but we managed to cram a lifetime of great experiences into his tenure as our singer: dozens shows at home in Portland and across several states, an amazing European tour, and our best full-length release yet.
We’ve lost our singer, but far, far more than that we’ve lost a friend.
Rest in peace, Jonny…we love you.
Jon Paul Steuer March 27, 1984 – January 1, 2018″
