"New Punk Sensation" Barb Wire Dolls release debut album Slit recorded by Steve Albini, Split Vinyl Single with OFF!, & Tour US & EU
"Barb Wire Dolls are the most explosive and exciting new punk band I've seen in decades!" - Mickey Leigh/brother of the late Joey Ramone and ex-tour manager for the Ramones. Being heralded as "the most important punk invasion to the U.S. since the Sex Pistols" (PMP) and receiving the "Best Live Punk Act" award in 2012 (Indy PRN), Barb Wire Dolls have rapidly become the critics and fans new choice as leaders of today's new punk explosion. "Like a shot heard around the world, Barb Wire Dolls are a true-to-the-genre punk band, connecting with audiences around the world." - Guitar World magazine.
After getting non stop airplay on Los Angeles' KROQ, Barb Wire Dolls were invited by the radio station to the U.S. for a series of concerts where they stormed L.A.'s music scene by selling out the Roxy Theatre, packing monthly residencies at the Viper Room, and attracting to their shows members of the Sex Pistols, Black Flag, L7, Flogging Molly, D Generation, Murder Junkies, and Frances Bean Cobain. "As the world is experiencing a new punk rock renaissance, Barb Wire Dolls' music carries a message, much like the anarchy of the Sex Pistols, but without the 'no future for you' aspect of it." - Mudkiss UK. Originally from the crisis-ridden Greece - and currently based out of Los Angeles - Barb Wire Dolls is a politically-charged blast of melodic high energy rock and roll that combines first wave punk, grunge, and metal riffs. "Barb Wire Dolls are the new face of Punk. The Dolls deliver “Real” authentic punk rock with 70's CBGB style and fashion with an oversexed frontwoman who makes Debbie Harry in her 70’s prime look downright homely, while singing like Patti Smith channeling Johnny Rotten. Punk’s not dead...not as long as Barb Wire Dolls have breath." - Music Entertainment magazine.
Fronted by the wild and out spoken blond bombshell singer Isis Queen, along with guitarist Pyn and drummer Krash, the band takes the idea of "duo-plus singer" to new sonic levels. "Barb Wire Dolls are out for blood, with real swagger, real attitude and real punk chops. Pyn’s downstrokes are of epic Ramone-esque “buzzsaw” proportions, the sonic freight train engineered by his dual guitar/bass cabinet assault is brutal alongside the battering ram-rhythms" (Music Ent.). After playing over 300 shows across America, playing direct support for Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedy's), and headlining festivals in several U.S. states, Barb Wire Dolls entered Electrical Audio studios in Chicago for two nights to put their music to tape with legendary sound engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Stooges, Pixies). In November of 2012 Barb Wire Dolls released their much anticipated debut album, Slit "the best punk record since Nirvana's "Bleach" (Music & Riots magazine) with a record release show at the Bowery Electric in New York City.
In January 2013, a split vinyl single with OFF! (Keith Morris/Black Flag & Circle Jerks) was released and coming soon is the "Barb Wire Dolls live at Tremont Music Hall" DVD. The band is currently on their third U.S. national tour and will head to the U.K. in June for the first time to tour alongside punk legends GBH, 999, & The Lurkers. Barb Wire Dolls will be headlining festival and club dates into early 2014 as they venture into most European countries by year's end.
###################################### ### Interview with Isis Queen, singer of Barb Wire Dolls ### ######################################
Do you think the role of "punk rock" has changed in the last decade or so? Naturally, the issues punk rock rallied against in the 70s/80s aren't exactly the same issues of the people of this society. What are your thoughts on this?
The voice of the people will always be punk rock. And punk will always mean rebellion. At one point, the hippies spoke up but were too stoned to destroy. When punk started rearing its ugly head, it was first about the music scene - and the lack of raw, simple, chaotic rock bands and music. The Stooges, Ramones, and New York Dolls created music that did not immediately identify with mainstream audiences for example but they were all setting the stage for other changes that would eventually change everything, and after many decades, these bands also have finally received the recognition they deserved in the first place. MC5 really should get the most credit for bringing the voice of the people into a "punk" attitude though, but they too were brought down by the "man" before they could make a massive difference in awareness to the youth of the world. It took the Sex Pistols with massive hype and publicity to literally destroy to its core the music world. They get the highest honor in my book for taking it to the "man" and defining what punk and rebellion still stand for. The Clash took this ideal started by the Pistols and made it authentic and important. The Dead Kennedy's, with the genius Jello Biafra fronting, opened up the minds of the youth as did Black Flag who forced it even hard down with a hard core approach; both creating a vital DIY "business" movement in the process. Only in the '90's did joke bands like Blink 182 and Sum 41 dishonor the genre by becoming bubble gum shite, singing about farts, snot, and dating break-ups. These "Pop" punk bands were fueled by millions of dollars by the major record labels and to many, this type of "punk" is all they know. The times have changed and because of the state of the world: musically, politically, and socially - a new punk explosion is happening all over again with bands bringing back punk to the roots of it all. There are more punk bands from the original wave getting back together in the last two years than ever before. Even Black Flag is reuniting to perform again. What does that mean? It means there are millions of fed up people out there with the state of the world: musically, politically, and socially!
You said that you're "fed up with the current state of the world musically, politically, and socially". Can you explain this statement and what would you do to change things?
We are fed up with the system. Fed up with how people have become enslaved beyond recognition. Almost everyone has become boring passion-less zombies doing whatever the system tells them to do, watches what they are told to watch, listen to what they are told to listen to, act the way they are told to act, go to Church when they don't even believe, etc etc. This humankind of today is hooked on whatever is put in front of them and they have lost their souls' emotions and power to follow their dream. Society has corrupted for thousands of years the free spirit of humankind and now with so many toxins put into our foods and water, there is no other escape but to revolt, destroy, and re build it all. There is a revolution going on that is not televised and everything is in motion to combat the greedy power bankers of the world who have accomplished a lot in the last century. Greece - were I and the other two band members are from- will be overtaken by the citizens soon enough and once other countries wake up to the reality of it all, there will be a world-wide takeover by the people, for the people with representatives in Governments that will serve the people. For example, the American president John F. Kennedy was a pawn for "them" when he said the people should ask what they can do for their country. It is the totally opposite: the country should ask the people "what can we do for you?!" The 99% will rise up once they get off of their couches and stop watching TV relentlessly, and stop playing video games when they could be making love, playing or experiencing music, when they could be communicating, when they could be exploring! Once they start thinking and then start acting - they will come to know that they can live a fulfilling life even if governments will still rule society. Just watch the people of the world destroy the hypocrisies and lies of the Church and Governments and "freedom" will be a word that is actually experienced in reality, not in "hope", "Heaven", or in another life. Life is NOW and will always be. So wake up!
Barb Wire Dolls have been awarded the "best live act" and have been called "the best punk band since The Ramones", and your move to Los Angeles was likened to when the Sex Pistols invaded America in '78 . Which bands/artist have had the most impact on you?
The Doors had the most impact on me early on as a child. It wasn't until I watched "The Song Remains The Same", the Led Zeppelin concert film that I was immediately inspired to become a singer but that was only a few years ago. The Slits changed my life too. Ari Up was vital to me understanding a "girl's" place in rock and roll. She told me about her life and her history in the London punk scene along with The Sex Pistols, Clash, and Damned and after singing with her and The Slits on stage; I was a new woman! I owe the most inspiration to her. She opened the door to me that anything is possible with positive action and commitment.
How was it working with Steve Albini?
Effortless. He is the master of recording a band like it really sounds. In time, he will be regarded as the most important recording engineer to have ever lived. Only Steve can capture the true, raw energy of a band without using any digital equipment and convert that sound to a 2" tape reel. Even though his bands Big Black, Rapeman, and Shellac are massively important to the history of Rock, nothing really sets him more apart than his technique of recording a band. He has some mystery about him and that adds to the legend of his recorded albums, from Nirvana's "In Utero", Pixies "Surfer Rosa", to so many more great seminal albums. If you can imagine that Jimmy Page produced all of Led Zepellin's albums and when he and Robert Plant decided to record together again; they hired Steve and trusted his process to produce a magical sound above any other producer or engineer in the world including themselves. I mean, if U2 offered him over 3 million dollars to record their new album - and he turned them down because Bono wanted to "track" everything (and spend many months in the studio), - only shows his pure and humble devotion to the "art" and "realness" of rock music.
In regards to the Music + Riots magazine quote about your Barb Wire Dolls debut album SLIT being "the best punk record since Nirvana's Bleach", that's all tall order. What do you make of that? And what sort of influence was Nirvana on you ... I hear touches of Nirvana on "Revolution" and "Devil's Full Moon."
If you were to read the full review you would see that this critic is serious about this album and his claim of it being that "important" of an album. We don't compare albums, but as far as the last two decades are concerned - I personally have not been moved by any new music especially in the Punk genre. I know our album SLIT destroys as does our live sound. As for Nirvana being an influence, somehow that influence just came out spontaneously during the recording. We were all shocked when we heard the album back and could also hear the touches of that band. There will never be another Nirvana, Black Flag, or another Sex Pistols, or whatever. And I wouldn't say that this quote compares us to Nirvana, it is more of an observation by the magazine's editor and his opinion of punk rock releases of the past 20 years or so.
It's good to finally hear a punk record that actually sounds raw. In these days of Pop Punk, everything is so polished. Were these songs recorded live or at least close to live? They have that sort of feel.
We recorded it in two nights and recorded all live including my one vocal track. Pyn (guitarist) added some guitar flourishes afterwards. All it takes is one or two nights to make an album. Not years like Linkin Park or Coldplay and budgets in the many millions. Rock and Roll is simple, raw, honest, and inspiring. You cannot fake it like an orgasm or a "promise". Everyone knows what is real. It's time to start being real again. But then again the zombies out there live in a false reality, and they may remain "comfortable" living like un-knowing slaves...until the fire reaches their couch.
Press (more quotes below):
“Every few years or so a band comes along that changes the music landscape. They are different from the other bands that are out there. They bring something new and exciting to an otherwise generic music scene that the public has grown tired of. The Beatles did this, The Sex Pistols did this, Guns N’ Roses did this, Nirvana did this. But for the past 20 years no band has been able to stand out from their predecessors. No band has been able to re-ignite the music scene, to bring back the energy it once had….that is until now. With their sound, their look and their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls are going to do what no band has been able to do within the last two decades…take the music industry by storm.” – Sugarbuzz magazine
"Barb Wire Dolls 'Slit' is the best punk rock record since Nirvana's "Bleach" - Music + Riots magazine
"Barb Wire Dolls are the most explosive and exciting punk band I have seen in decades! A powerfully great fuckin' band, and also just great fuckin' people. I can tell you with certainty that what you've heard about this band is true." - Mickey Leigh/brother of the late Joey Ramone and ex-tour manager for the Ramones
"Barb Wire Dolls are the most important punk invasion to the U.S. since the Sex Pistols" - PMP
"Barb Wire Dolls are the new face of Punk. The Dolls deliver “Real” authentic punk rock with 70's CBGB style swagger and fashion with an oversexed frontwoman, Isis Queen, who makes Debbie Harry in her 70’s prime look downright homely, while singing like Patti Smith channeling Johnny Rotten. Punk’s not dead...not as long as Barb Wire Dolls have breath." - Music Entertainment magazine
"The best punk band since the Sex Pistols" - Tremont Music Hall
"Leading the pack for today's generations of punk bands, the Barb Wire Dolls have attracted a legion of fans and famous followers, including Black Flag and the Sex Pistols, thanks to its high energy rock and roll that combines first-wave punk, grunge and metal. Fronted by bombshell vocalist Isis Queen, the band recently released its debut album Slit, masterminded by legendary producer Steve Albini." - Goldstar
"Barb Wire Dolls are a Los Angeles punk band. If you were bummed that you missed out on the Sex Pistols and Black Flag because you were only one, or not even born yet, here’s your chance to catch one of the best bands playing that style today. From their music to their attitude, Barb Wire Dolls embody that same spirit of the late ‘70s punk scene." - Washington Times
"Clear the way for the new hottest and explosive trio Barb Wire Dolls and make room in the hall of fame of Punk ´cause history is already being made and it´s about time to listen to real fucking punk music again… period! They are the first punk band emerging from Crete, Greece and to unleash rebellion in the USA (where they currently remain on tour until June 2013). With the charisma and strong personality of the hot singer Isis Queen, with the riffing energy of Pyn Doll, with the full-throttle drumming of Krash Doll along with the thirst to bring back to life the sleeping old school punk movement they began their own revolution! Barb Wire Dolls is certainly one of the best bands of the genre out there and they have it all, sound, look and an attitude that electrifies wherever they play. The live performances are truly outstanding with Isis claiming the stage and the space of the public to interact with the crowd, to mosh and sing loud to the sound of raw music, it´s like losing ear virginity in a 70´s rock show with sensuality and violence in the mixture. Dolls blend the good old sarcasm of their roots with the strong message “Do something with your life, start a revolution” and of course with punk, lots of punk with a grunge taste, ready to set everything on fire! You can and must acquire their debut album “Slit” that was released in November 2012. “Slit” described in some word is destructive, a pure massive H-bomb, a nuclear sound wave, probably the best punk album of the last two decades with a ravishing, catchy, refreshing and revolutionary face. Like in 1981 Punk´s Not Dead!" - Heavy Hard MetalMania
"One band that is on fire, is challenging the masses to wake up and making a shit ton of noise around the world is Barb Wire Dolls. The band is getting noticed by everyone past and present, the original artists that were telling the world to go to hell and die along with the new; The Ramones, The Dead Kennedy’s, Black Flag, and Flogging Molly and on. The band is fronted by a sexy blond assault weapon that makes Debra Harry, Wendy O-Williams, all of them look tame by comparison to Isis Queen. Guitarist Pyn has a dual guitar/bass cabinet set-up that shatters the usual band line-up and shatters a lot of windows along the bands endless touring trail. The brutality and final trigger in all of this is drummer Krash who attacks the kit with aggression." - New England Examiner
"L.A.-by-way-of-Greece DIY punk trio Barb Wire Dolls drummed up enough funds on Kickstarter.com to record their 2012 debut, Slit, in Chicago over two days with legendary sound engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Iggy Pop, The Pixies). The result is a grungy first wave punk-influenced rock record as ring-led by fierce and feral frontwomen "Isis Queen". Video finds the bleached blonde force coiling and springing and thrashing and singing commanding, politically-charged lyrics to the crunchy power chord riffage of "Pyn Doll" and battering-ram rhythms of "Krash Doll." - Creative Loafing magazine
"Barb Wire Dolls are a true-to-the-genre-punk band." - Guitar World magazine
"There is a punk band from Greece called Barb Wire Dolls. They moved to LA a couple of years ago and they are talking a lot about the occupy movement and the corporate greed on Wall Street and the destruction of our freedoms and liberties. Greece is in a really bad situation so they are speaking from the heart and the singer, Isis Queen has a lot to say on the subject. A kind of a new, young, punk rock band that I kind of like because they’re really outspoken and they’re really trying to be true to punk rock. True to punk rock attitude. You know, being like real rebels. Greece is in really bad shape, so they know what they’re talking about and they’re not just doing it to get attention. They really mean it. There’s a lot of really really really great music out in the world." - Stephen DePace/Flipper
"Barb Wire Dolls throw down the gauntlet to today's pre-fab rebellion, pointing a middle finger where it so clearly belongs." - Blank TV
"The hardest thing to do in punk rock today is make an impact. A band HAS to have it all --great songs, great sound, balls, and excitement. And it has to be real. Barb Wire Dolls has it all. And like the punk rock I grew up on, the impact is rare and special." - Francis Duane Rollick/(GG Allin's) The Murder Junkies
"Punk’s not dead and it never went away. It has been pushed underground for decades by the media because it speaks of the truth and exposes hypocrisy, but with the political climate of the world rapidly changing, a new female oriented punk resurgence has created a movement across the globe. One band in particular is shaking things up with their debut album. Hailing from the birthplace of Democracy, Barb Wire Dolls is a politically charged female-fronted Punk trio from Greece that combines the furious raw elements of first wave punk and grunge rock into a modern melodic sound that decimates hearts and minds." - Fixe magazine
"The hottest punk band since the Ramones!" - Christopher Stets/Spin magazine photographer
"As the world is experiencing a new punk rock renaissance, one punk band in particular has taken the city of Los Angeles by storm. There is a raw energy to their performances that make you want to sit up and pay attention to what they are saying, because for them, it’s not just about music. It’s about all aspects of existence. Their music carries a message, much like the anarchy of the Sex Pistols, but without the “no future for you” aspect of it. They preach free love and freedom to do what they want without being harnessed by society and ancient moral limitations." - Mudkiss fanzine
"Barb Wire Dolls prove that Punk is not dead. Combining the raw elements of Punk into a fast, furious, melodic sound." - Verge magazine
"In the late 70′s Joe Strummer wanted a riot of his own. In the 80′s Henry Rollins promised us we would rise above. Later in the 90′s NY street punks like The Casualties encouraged us to believe that “Tomorrow belongs to us.” Today, as many are plugged into a hologram prison of false reality, we have the Barb Wire Dolls, creating the architecture of the militant battle cry for your escape. Lead singer Isis Queen is pure operatic cataclysmic liberation. Her appeal is sexy and savage together in one identity. It would almost be as if you took the “dolled up” sex appeal of Debbie Harry (Blondie) and combined that with the sexual savagery of Wendy O Williams (Plasmatics), giving you what Isis Queen delivers on stage." - Walk The Plank mag / New York City
"Following in the footsteps of such rock vixens as Blondie's Debbie Harry, Nena Hagen, and Joan Jett is Isis Queen, trendsetter for a new generation." - Jerk Of All Trades magazine
"From an artists' commune in Crete to The Roxy in LA, the Barb Wire Dolls have embarked on a punk rock pilgrimage, drumming up hype and approval from people with names such as Bingenheimer and Biafra along the way. Isis Queen, the anarchic force at the front of Greece's Barb Wire Dolls, tells me that society is broken and punk can fix it. Barb Wire Dolls are looking at punk from the outside. The US-based Greek three piece ignores anything the genre has to offer post-1989, instead focusing on punk's golden age, from the Circle Jerks throwback 'Your Escape' to the Germs-inspired 'Walking Dead'. BWD embrace genre conventions. Their debut (Slit) is fast, messy and socially conscious. Targets are banks, the media and religious groups, best illustrated in 'World on Fire' and 'Shut Up Slut'. Slit is a record that sounds both relevant and like a 30-year-old forgotten gem that has been consigned to the shelves of a secondhand record store. Produced by noise guru Steve Albini and recorded in just two days, Slit embraces the DIY punk ethos of generations past. A fantastic mission statement for a band that wants to save punk." - veri.live magazine
"With raw power and pure source, primal force Barb Wire Dolls are shaking and waking up US audiences with their electrifying live show and have a big buzz about them. With a mix of Blondie and The Sex Pistols, the time is ripe for a major change in the music world - and this band has got all the goods to do it." - Juice magazine
“Who says punk is dead? Not Barb Wire Dolls, the Greek girl-fronted “street rock” band that is cranking up Los Angeles. Tune in to KROQ, the world-famous Los Angeles radio station that launched the careers of bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and you’ll catch their single “California” which has been on the playlist for well over twenty weeks–and counting. DJ Rodney Bingenheimer, an arbiter of rock tastes who has helped the public discover bands from The Clash and Blondie to Nirvana and Coldplay, says the band is “really good” and pronounced the song “a hit”. – Odyssey magazine
"This is just what the world needs now, a good girl-fronted punk band." - Charlotte Cooper/The Subways
“Where did the music go? In a time of transparent music and artists, one could say music sucks. In my opinion, it does! What does not suck, is the new movement peeking its head out in Southern California called, “the Street Generation”. I have not seen a band with such drive and confidence in a long time. No matter what stage they stand on, they play as if there are 10,000 people in front of them. Barb Wire Dolls are leading the Street Generation into battle. Confronting a scene that many would have considered dead and stale until they got here.” - Pancakes and Punk
“This band is really good!" - Rodney Bingenheimer aka Rodney on the Roq/KROQ
"Barb Wire Dolls is essentially a fiery, raging punk band with hints of ‘80s metal and thrash flourishes. Barb Wire Dolls are certainly one pissed off band, and that anger certainly translates into something big and crunchy." - Pop Matters
“Barb Wire Dolls are the real fucking deal! The most excited I’ve been about music in 15 years!” – Bryan Carlstrom/producer (Offspring, Alice In Chains, Social Distortion, Anthrax, PIL, Billy Idol)
"They just may ignite another punk revolution." - Chicago Examiner
"They’re loud, they’re in your face, they give a fuck about what’s going on today, and they’re on a mission to rise up against whatever it is that holds you down." - Nanobot
“There are plenty of bands playing the Sunset Strip every night but no band has had such an impact as quickly as the Barb Wire Dolls have had on the scene in recent times.” - The Viper Room
"Fronted by growling, purring sex kitten Isis Queen, Greek trio Barb Wire Dolls resuscitate the exhilaration and abandon of 1970s punk. Forsaking their troubled homeland for the glitz of L.A.’s Sunset Strip, the Dolls have embraced a hail of hype. It’s not hard to see why. Anchored by cavernous drums and churning riffage, the group delivers solid if uninspired backing that recalls old-school second-string punk bands like The Lurkers. Whirling like a dervish, rolling on the floor and fellating the mic, Isis Queen is the show here, copping the low-register hard-assery, if not the poetry, of Patti Smith and Chrissie Hynde. The lyrics revel in tease and sleaze, but it’s refreshing that unlike many of their puritan ’70s punk models, the Dolls embrace sexuality whole-heartedly." - Creative Loathing/Charlotte, NC
“Grecian imports the Barb Wire Dolls have taken The Sunset Strip by storm, building an exponential word of mouth buzz after their stunning debut performance at The Roxy Theatre.” - The Roxy Theatre
"LA-by-way-of-Greece DIY punk trio Barb Wire Dolls drummed up enough funds on Kickstarter.com to record their 2012 debut Slit in Chicago over two days with legendary sound engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Iggy Pop, The Pixies). The result is a grungy first wave punk-influenced rock record as ring-led by fierce and feral frontwoman ‘Isis Queen.’ Video finds the bleached blonde force coiling and springing and thrashing and singing commanding politically-charged lyrics to the crunchy power chord riffage of ‘Pyn Doll’ and battering-ram rhythms of ‘Krash Doll.’" - Creative Loathing/Tampa, FL
"Barb Wire Dolls could become huge, they are kinda like a girl-fronted Green Day." - Michael McDermott/Bouncing Souls
“Barb Wire Dolls, a female-fronted punk band from Greece, have caused quite a buzz in L.A. since moving here in 2010. Lead singer Isis Queen is one half Wendy O. Williams, one half Brody Dalle and all attitude. They’ve played the Punk Rock Picnic and opened for the Bouncing Souls. They’ve appeared on the cover of Punk Globe, and Rodney Bingenheimer has played their music on his show. That’s not bad for a band that was living in a commune in Greece a year ago. The band’s ballsy performances and in-your-face marketing campaign may be a bit much for people used to mopey indie bands, but true rockers will appreciate it.” - The Slums of Hollywood Boulevard
“They are hitting Los Angeles with a powerful force. And they have only just begun to unleash their immense talent… Look Out America.. Here come the Barb Wire Dolls!” - Punk Globe magazine
“There is a buzz on the streets of L.A., it’s loud, it’s nasty and it’s hitting the region like a tornado. The music they played was so refreshing and full of an energy the Punk scene needs desperately.” – Big Wheel magazine
“This band is breaking audiences out of zombiehood with electrifying live shows. Raw, wild, loud, and very R-rated sexy.” - Biker Notes
“For 16 consecutive weeks and counting, Rodney on the Roq has been playing Barb Wire Dolls music on KROQ. He has declared them as “really good” and has said their song “California” is a hit. Rodney Bingenheimer has been instrumental in launching careers of such bands as The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Clash, Blondie, Nirvana and numerous other popular ‘take it to the street’ rock bands.” – Hollywood Weekly magazine
“Punk Rock Goddess and the coolest fucking band I’ve seen in over 20 years! Thank god they are here to put things straight! Barb Wire Dolls are going to take over the world. The world needs their music and attitude. Everything is so lame and boring and these punks are a breath of fresh air. Take it from me, I’ve been around and experienced and lived all the scenes from the past 30 years from London to Seattle. I feel the change and it’s called Barb Wire Dolls! They are the next fucking Nirvana!” – Dainty Seventy Seven

Vadonatúj és egyedi szurkoló nóta készült az Újpest szurkolói számára: a Nadir a FAT szurkolói szövegét interpretálta. A feléneklésben oroszlánrészt vállalt a zenekar néhány, az Újpest FC iránt szoros kötődést érző ismerőse, barátja is.
Aki 99,9% tervezi,hogy jön a a rendezvényre az 18:30-ig érjen oda a helyszínre ,hogy be is férjen ! Sajnos a West-Balkanos tragédia óta mindenhol klub szigorítások vannak a nézőszám miatt ! Ha nem akarod lekésni a GUTTED zenekart(ők kezdenek 20:00-kor pontosan) akkor jó előre időben legyél a Dürer-...Kertben ajtón belül. Ez a vidéki fanoknak is szól ! A hely(aula kocsma rész) 17:00-töl nyitva "elvileg".

Az Atari Teenage Riot visszatérését idén márciusban jelentették be; egyelőre koncertekről van szó, amelyeken a régiek mellett új számokat is játszanak, egyet (Activate) letölhetővé is tettek. Alec Empire mellett most Nic Endo szerepel a zenekarban, valamint CX KiDTRONiK amerikai zenész-énekes-producer. Az eddigi koncertek a beszámolók szerint elképesztően energikusak és sikeresek. A tavaszi - nyári turné során a Európa legjelentősebb klubjaiban léptek fel, Japánban pedig egy 60.000 fős arénában rendezett fesztiválon.
Tagok: Alec Empire - ének, billenytűs hangszerek, dobgépek Nic Endo - ének, hangminták, zaj effektek MC KidtroniK - ének, elektronika
