“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.”
The Jenny Don’t And The Spurs Europe tour is fully booked! No day off!
Jenny Don’t and the Spurs are Portland’s hottest new roots-country four piece. Featuring Jenny Don’t, Kelly Halliburton (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Pierced Arrows), Christopher March and Sam Henry (Wipers), Jenny Don’t and the Spurs bring a variety of musical styles and a formidable wealth of experience to the stage. Drawing from a long background of playing in some of Portlands best and most well known independent bands.
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.
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!

Check out Detroit 442 – old school punk from Detroit on their tour from March 10th – 25th in Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Italy and France!
The Anarcho Punk legend Subhumans will tour in February 2017 in Germany and the Netherlands followed by lots of festivals in summer in whole Europe.
Eric “Vegetable” Olson (Poison Idea) and Kelly Halliburton (Problems, Defiance, Pierced Arrows etc.) joined Don’t (Rockstar Records, Germany / Doomtown Sounds, Portland), the band of Wipers-drummer Sam Henry and singer Jenny Don’t. This Portland Punk Allstar band will tour in May and June 2017 through Europe and bring their new 7inch.
Dominik from Canal Terror and Molotow Soda is the new guitarist for the popular punk band F*cking Angry from Bonn, Germany (Rilrec). They will play as much as they can in 2017!
Detroit 442 (angry oldschool punkrock from Detroit, one of the most violent cities in the world) will tour Europe in March 2017.
After her successfull first tour with a full band Louise Distras will come back with her girls and boys in April/May 2017.
Pete Bentham and the Dinner Ladies are back! After a small break the only Kitchen core band in the world will be back in April 2017 with their new 4 track vinyl EP “Pychedelic Village” (Antipop Records)!
The Ghost Wolves from Texas were signed by Hound Gawd! Records (Berlin, Germany) and will publish their new album “Texas Platinum” in spring 2017, followed by a 3-week European tour.
I can’t believe that the Jenny Don’t And The Spurs and the Louise Distras tour both are over. But Jenny will come back in May/June with Don’t (including their new band member Eric “Vegetable” Olson from Poison Idea) and also Louise will come back in April with her band! 🙂
Thank you very much, people, who organized shows, people, who promoted shows and people, who came and enjoyed these two amazing bands!
Don’t be sad when the summer is over – because in fall the wonderful singer-songwriter Louise Distras will tour with a full band in Europe! Louise Distras channels her anger, hopes and fears into anthems of love and fury for yet another let down generation. Ticking both the post-punk and pop boxes with explosive lyrics and riotous sonic disposition, Distras’ live shows are “high energy face rippers that stand out like a meteor”.

Exciting news! Cheetah Chrome, the original Dead Boys guitarist, will come to Europe for a few shows in August and then again in October 2016! Turbo Booking is happy to help. 🙂
Cheetah Chrome’s explosive songwriting and raw tone influenced an entire generation of players and has been reflected in some most revered and popular bands including The Hellacopters, The Darkness, Powder Monkeys or Supersuckers.
From cutting his chops and being an architect for the US punk rock sound in Cleveland, Ohio with Rocket from The Tombs to relocating to New York City as a founding member of one of the most prolific punk rock bands of the genre, The Dead Boys.
In Fall 2016, Cheetah Chrome will be returning to Europe to embark on a tour across mainland Europe. With “The Knobs” Cheetah has recruited a quality cast of band mates who have aligned themselves with his style and have brought his influence to their country, Tony Leewenburgh aka “Tony Slug” (BGK, Nitwitz, The Hydromatics, Loveslug, The Spades), Theo Brouwer (Lords Of Altamont, The Nitwitz, The Hydromatics) and Ries Doms (The Kik, The Hydromatics, Powervice, The Spades).

Portland’s hottest new roots-country four piece “Jenny Don’t and the Spurs” will come back to Europe after only six months, because we all had too much fun with the country experience! Featuring Jenny Don’t (Don’t, Ladies Of The Night), Kelly Halliburton (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Pierced Arrows), JT Halmfilst (Thee Headliners, Audios Amigos) and Sam Henry (Wipers, Rats, Napalm Beach, Don’t)! While the sound of the Spurs is original and draws from deep wells of personal experience, the band pays stylistic homage to the greats of the genre – Patsy Cline, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams Sr., Loretta Lynne, and all the rest of the real players from the 1940s and 50s…

Thank you all for organizing and watching the alltogether 63 shows of Don’t and the P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. from January till March! Luckily Jenny (Don’t), Kelly (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Dead Moon etc.) and Sam (Don’t, Ex-Wipers) are staying for 19 more shows with their fantastic roots country band Jenny Don’t and the Spurs!

Luckily I found some new places where they can play – many thanks to all the local promoters!
I’m stoked to announce that Turbo Booking now helps the terrific Steakknife (Hardcore Punk from Saarbrücken with legendary singer Lee Hollis from the Spermbirds) with bookings outside Germany!
Let Lee Hollis speak for himself: “We‘ve been doing this forever. 22 years I think. At least long enough to put an eight year distance between ‘One Eyed Bomb’ and our last record ‘Parallel Universe of the Dead’. So yeah, forever. Steakknife has always felt like ‘the right thing to do’. Even on the worst day of the shittiest tour in the middle of winter and ‘Fuck everyone in and OUTSIDE of this BUS!’ we were all in that bus because it was ‘the right thing TO DO.’ Because the music we make is the music we listen to. I wrote that about fifteen years ago and it‘s still true today.”
Turbo Booking is busy as a bee. I’m preparing eight tours right now for Portland’s admirable and adorable Don’t, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. and Jenny Don’t & The Spurs, also for Feral Kizzy‘s wonderful wave/dark pop which always reminds me of the B-52’s, another tour for the very special all-girl post punk/noise pop band Punčke from Croatia and last but not least for the Veggers, Reddot and the Dead Buttons, the first Korean punk bands ever touring in Germany!
Sorry, I have to increase the price for the tour van rental from December 1st, 2015. At the moment it’s not even possible to cover the costs for insurance, maintenance and repair from 75 € per day let alone making any profit. As it is really important for me that the vans always are in a very good condition, I have to take 80 € per day in future and see how it is going from there. There are still no extra costs for navigation device, additional drivers, fully comprehensive insurance, winter tyres, fine processing and final cleaning!
These four fantastic bands will be on tour in a few days!
***On tour in October/November 2015:***

Jenny Don’t and the Spurs will tour Europe in April 2016. Jenny from Don’t, Sam from the Wipers, Kelly from Dead Moon, Pierced Arrows, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. etc. are Portland’s hottest new roots-country trio. They bring a variety of musical styles and a formidable wealth of experience to the stage.

Check out their awesome new video “Rattlesnakes and Dogs”:

Exciting news! TrueTrash Records will release the Room Full of Strangers album “Bad Vacation” on tape and as lathe cut 7inch on October 23rd, 2015. Grab your copies here: truetrash.com/room-full-of-strangers-vinyl-and-tape
RFOS will be on tour in Germany from October 22nd – November 7th. Ask for free dates!
“Room Full of Strangers werden in der Live-Präsentation wohl ein Heidenspaß, die Band kommt im Oktober nach Deutschland, wir sehen uns in der ersten Reihe” sagt das Ox Fanzine!
Und das Trashrock Mag schreibt:
“Ich bin wirklich schwer begeistert. Jedes der zehn Lieder auf “Bad Vacation” ist ein kleiner Hit, der in die Beine geht und dich tanzen lässt. ‘Bad Vacation’ ist ein wirklich klasse Album, das sich in einem Rutsch durchhören und den Finger ganz schnell zur Repeattaste wandern lässt . Im Herbst kommt die Band auf Tour nach Europa. Wer kann, sollte sich das nicht entgehen lassen. Ich bin mir sicher, live sind die eine Granate. Geile Band!”
The new Jenny Don’t and the Spurs album will be out in September! They will play three release shows in September in Portland:
In November 2015 the sect will enlighten Europe with the radiance of the guru’s knowledges: an end to wars, diseases, sadness, and all things that hindered the greatness of humanity.
The Guru and his apostles created Sects Tape as a musical branch of the sect. The result is a mix of surf and garage rock riffs, with a punchier rhythmical section and of course the message and habits of the sect.
The Flicts Europe tour starts today!
The Flicts are an antifascist punk band from the Brazilian megacity São Paulo with Jef and Arthur from Agrotóxico playing bass and guitar.
Sad news: Besserbitch had to cancel the RosRock festival on July 4th. Singer Elin broke her arm and bassist Klara has decided to leave the band.
