Puta Madre Brothers 08.03.2011 Laab München


Puta Madre Brothers

Was für ein Haufen durchgeknalleter Jungs: Puta Madre Brothers aus Australien (Anto Macaroni, Pikkle Henning, Renato Vacirca) Zuviel Ozon oder heftige Drogen; wer sonst verkauft am Merchstand selbstgedrehte Zigaretten? Im gut gefüllten Laab in München gab es die mexikanischen Australier aus der Garage mit wildem Mariachi Surf Garagen Rock Mix. Im Sitzen werden von den Puta Madre Brothers 2x Gitarre, 1x Bass, dann noch Tamburin, Snare und 3x Bassdrum + 2x HiHat bedient, sehr interessant und mit den leicht verwirrten Ansagen auch ein großer Spaß. Definitiv ein Hingeher und zur Info, die 7“ Single habe ich auch gleich gekauft. Jetzt noch ein doppelter Dank an Trümmerbooking, fürs Buchen der Truppe und dass ich auch Fotos machen durfte und auch ein schnelles Interview mit Renzo.

What a crazy bunch these Puta Madre Brothers or did you ever see some Australians dress up like Mexicans and selling self rolled cigarettes at their merchandise? The music is a mix including Mexican mariachi style with a bit of surf and garage rock in it and is live lots of fun! The crowd was amused and after the show I had to buy the 7” vinyl single, all because of the good live event.

Puta Madre Brothers 08.03.2011 Interview Renzo

Who knows about the Puta Madre Brothers? I didn’t until today when I went to see them live and afterwards I got hold of Renato Vacirca (Renzo) or Chocolate (that’s what he called himself at the moment I have asked him), seems to get a good silly interview, great. Three crazy ones from Australia playing a quite interesting music style with lots of Mexican influences, too much ozone…
What is written on the flyer and on the 7″ vinyl single? Three men – no mission!

Puta Madre Brothers, Renzo is the one with Rock The Cam on his face

SPERMBIRDS – Tour – Rookie Records noballs Records

Rookie Records RR091 noballs Records NBR038 (2010)

Geile Motivsingle, sieht echt klasse aus. Darauf zu finden gibt es das Lied Columbus Feeling, welches vom aktuellen Album bekannt ist. Dies geht komisch los, wird dann aber eine typische Spermbirdsnummer – Just Be Yourself!
Und dann gibt es noch als exklusiven Verkaufsanreiz den Song Jobless Gun Collector: schnell, immer drauf und Lee’s Stimme, haben die Spermbirds mit Lee Hollis jemals was wirklich schlechtes rausgebracht?

Und jetzt noch für die Sammler:

Three copies vinyl in black – test press
100 in clear vinyl, silkscreen sleeves and hand numbered B-side
172 like mine (see photo), black vinyl silkscreened B-side without sleeve

Spermbirds -Tour -Vinyl picture

Great piece of vinyl artwork, the Spermbirds 7” tour single. Including two songs: Columbus Feeling is known from the album: starts a bit strange but ends up like a Spermbirds song. Then comes an exclusive one called Jobless Gun Collector, like all songs from Spermbirds with Lee, it is a good one. I have a copy but unfortunately just the looser format…

Spermbirds 26.06.2010 Jahninselfest Regensburg


Spermbirds

Für mich ein glückliches Wiedersehen mit der deutschen Hardcore Punk Legende Spermbirds. Lee Hollis meinte zwar er ist auf Antibiotika wegen einer Krankheit, davon war beim Auftritt aber nichts zu spüren. Mit Americans are cools ging es los und ab ging das Spermbirds Feuerwerk. Viele Jumps auf der Bühne, lustige Zwischensprüche von der Bühne und ein Pogo-Mob vor der Bühne. Einfach schön mit einer Band zusammen älter zu werden, welche auch nach Jahren Ihr Ding durchzieht. Fazit: ein klasse Gig von den Spermbirds auf einem tollen Jahninselfestival im sonnigen Regensburg.
Unter anderem gab es diese Songs hier zu hören: Americans Are Cool / Set An Example / You’re Not A Punk / Common Thread / Neighborhood Relations / Bed Tool / Stronger / Texas Cowboy / Say It Loud / Bloodstains / Nothing Is Easy / Try And Stop Us / My God Rides A Skateboard / Knife Thrower / Only A Phase / Try Again

Finally I was able to catch the Spermbirds again. I was happy to get some concert pictures from their gig at the Jahninselfest in Regensburg. And it was a good show during a good open air. Spermbirds with Lee Hollis is always fun to experience spiced up with some Jump action on stage!
