18 JANUARI – AGENT SIDE GRINDER + RADIOHIMLEN

Den 18 Januari presenterar vi stolt synth/industribandet Agent Side Grinder.

Agent Side Grinder is an electronic band from Stockholm, formed in 2005.

Their first two albums, ”Agent Side Grinder” (2008) and ”Irish Recording Tape” (2009) were rooted in post-punk, industrial and dark electro. The band quickly gained an underground following throughout Europe.

Their third album ”Hardware” (2012) showed a bigger and more textured sound and was met with universal acclaim. It was named ”album of the month” in Vice Magazine, topped several annual ”best of-lists” including Dagens Nyheter, Metro and Time Out Paris and won the Manifest-award (Swedish indie-grammy) for best synth album in 2013.

In 2015 they released their magnum opus “Alkimia”, a dramatic and melodic album that exceeded the success of “Hardware” (another Manifest win) and cemented ASG’s position as one of Europe’s leading synth-wave bands.

Now they are back with their fifth album ”A/X”. This is the first record with their new singer Emanuel Åström and the follow-up to the award-winning album ”Alkimia” from 2015.

From ”A/X” we have been treated with two singles: ”Doppelgänger” and ”Stripdown”. The latter quickly became an underground hit and has been frequently played on Swedish National Radio this winter. It was named ”song of the year” in Release Magazine, Synth.nu, Synthguiden and Elektroskull to name a few. Well-known music journalist Fredrik Strage praised the song on TV4 (National morning TV).

The singles introduced a more electronic and danceable sound, but all the elements that have made ASG a genre standout are intact on ”A/X”: Metallic beats, infectious basslines, sweeping synth melodies and extremely strong tracks.

”A/X” holds 9 tracks produced by Jon Bordon and contains guest appearances by Gustav Bendt (Club Killers) and the Danish-Canadian coldwave-singer Sally Dige.

ASG has a reputation of being a powerful and mighty live band. They have done seven European tours and played festivals such as Wave-Gotik Treffen, M’era Luna, The Great Escape, Eurosonic, Les Transmusicales de Rennes, Entremurahlas, Bimfest, Drop Dead Festival and Arvikafestivalen. They have opened for bands such as Suicide and Laibach and collaborated with artists like Dirk Ivens, Kite and Henric de la Cour.

28 Februari – Papa Dee + Starvibes

Den 28 Februari hälsar vi Papa Dee välkommen tillbaka till Garaget.

Papa Dees största hits är: Ain’t No Substitute, First Cut is the Deepest och Island Rock

Det är en härlig blandning av olika stilar som reggae, ragga, hip hop, ska, rocksteady, soul, funk, pop och allt som låter bra.

Papa Dee, född som Daniel Wahlgren den 13 Juli 1966. Hans mamma är Svenska och hans Pappa från Ghana. Efter att ha inlett sin karriär som sångare/rappare med Stonefunkers och Titiyo, så tog hans solokarriär fart med hits som ”Competition is None”, ”Microphone Poet”, ”Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” och ”Ain’t No Substitute”. Debut albumet, ”Lettin’ Off Steam” sålde guld i Sverige. ”Shabba Ranks, eat your heart out”, skrev TimeOut Magazine om albumet. Papa Dee lämnade sedan Sverige, först för att turnéra i USA och England. Där han öppnade för Ziggy Marley, Shinehead och Steel Pulse. 1993 flyttade han från London till New York där han blev medlem i Brooklyn Funk Essentials. Efter 5 år i NYC flyttade han tillbaka till Sverige, men han är fortfarande medlem i bandet.

Han har även släppt dub-albumet, ”Dub-Check”, inspelat på Jamaica och i New York och arbetat med bl.a Leftfield, Arthur Baker, Mad Professor, Mafia + Fluxy, Papa Levy, Shelley Thunder, Lady Saw, Richie Stephens, Degree, Danny English och Tanya Stephens.

Han är även med i rockbandet Ringo Franco.

13 Mars – Entombed A.D. + Interment

Fredag den 13 Mars presenterar vi stolt Entombed A.D. välkomna till Garaget.

If you don’t know ENTOMBED A.D., the deadly sonic force fronted by former Nihilist/Entombed vocalist L-G Petrov, well, then you’re either no metalhead, slept under a rock since the late 80’s or have already gone the way of all flesh with crawling swarms of maggots deliciously peeling every single bit of meat from your sorry bones.

ENTOMBED A.D.’s legacy goes way back into the year 1987 when the band originally formed under the name Nihilist. In 1989, the group changed its name to Entombed and together with Morbid (for whom singer L-G played drums), Treblinka/Tiamat, Grave, Unleashed, Dismember, they established themselves as masters of Swedish death metal before flavoring the trademark “Stockholm sound” with a more punkish, rocking edge that culminated in the ultimate death ‘n’ roll classic “Wolverine Blues” in 1993, an album still very much present in the band’s current sound.

Inspired by such diverse acts as Autopsy, Motörhead, Discharge or Kiss, over the years Entombed did not shy away from thinking outside of the coffin resulting in a style some fans called death’n’roll but in the end it was, is and will just be a band with a style and impact entirely their own.

With two full-length album under the new persona, Back to the Front (2014) and Dead Dawn (2016), ENTOMBED A.D are poised to return with one of 2019’s most devastating, deathly statements. Their new album “Bowels Of Earth” represents a huge leap forward for these gnarly veterans. Faster, tighter and more viscerally crushing than anything they have produced before.

Interment

Som uppvärmare får vi old school dödsmangel från Avestas finest Interment.

3 April – Supersuckers (US)

Fredag den 3 April presenterar vi stolt Supersuckers välkomna till Garaget.

If you don’t like the Supersuckers, you don’t like Rock-N-Roll.
-Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead

”You’ve heard our name, you’ve seen our records, our t-shirts and our stickers. We’re probably the favorite band of someone you know and yet maybe we’re still a mystery to you. Well my friend, that’s okay, you’re at the right place to get to know the greatest rock-n-roll band in the world, The Supersuckers.”

”And the next time you see the ‘Supersuckers’ name, whether it’s in the record store, online somewhere, or on the marquee at your local rock club, know that there’s some quality, honest, ass-kicking, hard working individuals behind it all trying to make your life a little better through the “Evil Powers Of Rock-n-Roll” (and the occasional detour into the country music, of course) and we’d love nothing better than to have you there with us as! Just remember to wear clean underwear, because we’re gonna rock your pants right off of you.”
– Eddie Spaghetti, Rock Guy
The Supersuckers

They played my birthday party. They rock!
-Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam

One of the few outfits that can call itself “The World’s Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Band!” and actually get away with it, the Supersuckers eat Marshall stacks and cowboy hats and s**t out high-volume ass-kickery, Motörheading country music and Willie Nelsoning garage-punk better than virtually anyone else, ever.
– Philadelphia Weekly
