Mad Sin
Mad Sin
MAD SIN were born in 1987 out the hard rockin’ street fighting, heavy drinking, seedy gutter of the rockabilly/punk underworld that flourished in a Berlin still entombed by the Eastern Bloc. Not even the Iron Curtain could stop the spread of the sickness that spewed from the first incarnation of the band, Koefte, Stein and Holly when they blasted headlong into the thriving European Psychobilly scene with their first full length album “Chills and Thrills”. 25 years on and 10 albums later the band have grown from the angry psychobilly trio playing squats and back rooms of dingy bars to a full-sized chart-bothering multi-genre embracing globe-trotting behemoth of a band. MAD SIN now happily straddle festival stages looking the crowd straight in the eyes just as they did in 1987 though are still as eager to dive headlong into the audience at a club gig as if the past quarter century had never happened.

“25 Years – Still Mad” is the band’s first ever DVD release and are quite rightly very proud of it. Running for approximately 160 minutes this audio CD/DVD set features their anniversary show in their home stomping ground of Berlin recorded in 2010, interviews, and previously unreleased rare footage from 1987 onwards. In addition the set includes video clips from earlier singles, a tour documentary, private tapes and a photo slideshow. In a nutshell, “25 Years – Still Mad” is a near complete audio-visual celebration of the MAD SIN’s hard-fought rise to mainstream album chart success doing it entirely their own way, a fitting tribute to a band that have fought adversity every step of the way and still came out swinging.
Stellar Corpses
Stellar Corpses
Stellar Corpses is a band hailing from Santa Cruz, California. Their sound is an uncompromising blend of punk, psychobilly and rock-and-roll, borrowing inspiration from timeless acts such as Social Distortion, The Damned, The Misfits or Chuck Berry, among others. The group dives head first into a dark, gritty and frantic mood with edgy songs that are as timeless as they are unpredictable - from the staggering blast beats of hardcore derivation to the band’s horror punk aesthetics, their songs are in-your-face and direct, yet unpretentiously sophisticated. Throughout the span of their career, Stellar Corpses has had the opportunity to tour throughout the world, sharing the stage with some of the most influential bands in the genre, including The Misfits, Demented Are Go, Mad Sin or Tiger Army.
The Strikers
The Strikers
Hailing from San Diego California, The Strikers sound is a mixture of aggressive punk rock, metal and psychobilly. Joey (guitar/lead vocals) and longtime friend Donovan (drums) were tired of trying to force their musical styles into bands that did not share their vision. They began writing songs for a straight forward rock band that would not compromise its sound for anyone. Almost by luck they found Rob (upright bass/backing vocals) who also shared their vision. The trio began writing and performing, mixing their own, very different, musical styles into one aggressive “kick-in-the-neck rock n’ roll band".
