Can You Help? Two Overseas Bands Coming Round To Tour
OK guys, there are these two bands who have contacted me about touring round Malaysia, Singapore and the region. I’m pretty busy at the moment which means that I can help a bit here and there but a few cool organisers getting together would be better, so I wonder if you guys can help.
1. SCHEISSE MINNELLI | myspace.com/scheisseminnelli | Date: March 2009
Old-school early-80s American hardcore of the skate kind! Shit hot fun stuff. Features one American and a bunch of Germans based in Aschaffenburg, Germany. The band’s tour scheduled for March 2009 is now being planned with the help of Kunx Krass Kepala in Indonesia.
Those who wanna help with local dates, please contact the vocalist Sam (thedeadsmurfs at engineer dot com), please CC your email to me so I can see what’s happening and help out with what I can.
2. DIAS FELICES | myspace.com/diasfelices | Date: 2009
A 5-piece “melodic-hardcore” band from Buenos Aries, Argentina which have been touring the US this year. Listening to their songs on the band’s myspace really made my day. Beautiful pop-punk without the commercial gloss which reminds me of the late great FUN PEOPLE and bits of HARD-ONS without the speedy parts. A nice mix of excellent power-pop songwriting encased in melodious gritty punk rock, just like the classic FUN PEOPLE’s Steve Albini-produced “The Art(e) of Romance” album.
The band’s looking for a local label to release their recordings here and also looking out for a tour here next year. Those who wanna help with local dates, please contact the vocalist Milhouse (contacto at dias-felices dot com dot ar), and again, please CC your email to me.
BTW; two other bands are coming soon! WAR ALL THE TIME is again coming to tour in November this year and also, wait for it! CONQUEST FOR DEATH!
and to those who are curious on the majestic beauty of FUN PEOPLE’s The Art(E) of Romance LP, go download the songs here – trust me, you’d never regret it!
