G.F.P. / Scheisse Minnelli – Split

Geez. Do you remember the skateboard legend Tony Alva? Or that bald dude from Bad Religion and Circle Jerks (to be fair, Greg Hetson used to have hair back in the day)? Do you know what that singer from Dead Fucking Last, Crazy Tom, has been up to lately?

Well, let me tell you! Together they formed General Fucking Principle a while back and have since been playing quite a lot shows. And now it’s time to put some of that raging Punk Rock on vinyl for the first time! That’s right. Our buddies from Scheisse Minnelli are going to release a split 12″ with these 4 guys from L.A. this summer and it’s gonna be wild. We’ll keep you posted!

Furthermore, we will release a newalbum from Scheisse Minnelli soonish. It’s gonna be packed with fucking cool punk rock & hardcore tunes, That’s the record you will be listening to while skating through the city this summer…so watch out for that one, too!

If you want to listen to these new songs even before they are officially released, make sure to catch them playing the crossbone fest on friday or at the Baracke in Münster on saturday! According to their recent post on facebook, they will be playing almost every new song…

Komplikations – Video & new Single coming soon

AlenKomplikations have been busy as a bee! They just shot their first music video at Le Cafe Central in Brussels for the song “Apathy” which appears on their second release “Poverty“. I guess that was even a first time for any Rockstar Records Band to make a video…I’m not sure though. Well, who cares.

Anyway, here’s even more news from your favourite non-guitar band. There’s a single in the making. Hooray! We are going to release a brandnew 7″ by this great trio in the near future. And let me tell you, these new songs …wow! More infos on that pretty soon…

CHIP HANNA & THE BERLIN THREE, LOUDERDALES

chip-poster-mittel-miniImmer nur auf Blech und Plastik einzuprügeln wird irgendwann langweilig. Früher oder später greift dann jeder Drummer zur Gitarre um auszuprobieren, was dieses “Melodie” ist, von dem alle reden. Chip Hanna, der Drummer von U.S. Bombs & One Man Army, hat seine Sticks schon länger gegen eine Gitarre ausgetauscht und sich auf seine Wurzeln konzentriert, die er in Baton Rouge, Louisiana mit der Muttermilch aufgesaugt hat. Diesen Country/Western Charme der Südstaaten könnt Ihr Euch ab 16.00 Uhr im Plattenbau ansehen (Eintritt frei!), wo Chip einige Traditionals und natürlich eigenen Kram spielen wird.

Damit aber nicht genug! Am Abend steht er dann wieder einmal vereint mit seinen Kollegen Tex, Valle und Andy von Mad Sin aus Kreuzberg, den ‘Berlin Three‘, auf der Bühne im AZ. Wer sich bei der stilsicheren Mixtur aus Countrypunkabilly nicht bewegt, muss wohl schon tot sein.
Ab 21.00 Uhr werden Euch bereits die Lokalhelden von Louderdales mit ihrem mitreißendem Americana/Cowpunk einheizen und außerdem dem Abend noch einen multimedialen Anstrich verpassen: Die Jungs haben eine Videopremiere zu feiern! Hell yeah! Kommt vorbei und trinkt günstiges Bier mit uns, spielt umsonst Kicker und gönnt Eurem gefrorenen Herzen ein wenig Wärme – von der Bühne direkt in Eure schwarzen Seelen!

Markiert Euch den 24. Januar also rot in Eurem Kalender. Der Tag wird der Hammer!´Wir sehen uns!

Quader – s/t LP out now!

Did somebody say stoner rock? Well, here’s a new band from our buddies in Cologne who managed to do some mischief with SE SICHELZECKEN. This new record however is an 8 song monster and has nothing in common with the aforementioned band. Think QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, think TOOL. It will grow on you!
Limited to 100 copies and out today! Buy LP here!

Komplikations – Poverty LP out soon!

We’re happy to announce a brand new LP titled POVERTY which will be out in october. Dark synthesizers, pissed vocals (one track in german!) combined with the well-known straight drumming. Killer!

Mark your calenders boys and girls! On October 12th, Komplikations are gonna play the Release Show at the Musikbunker Aachen. If you can’t make it, shame on you! But still you will be able to purchase one of those rare Preorder Edition Vinyls…soonish.
