This year, Turbonegro celebrates its 30th anniversary, Turbojugend was founded in 1996. Hence: an old man´s county club?
Nope. We sure do recruit newbees, Generation Y is an established part of our club. But there are differences, when boring old farts merge with the young guns. And believe us, it´s not only the flabby sagging flesh on our rear ends. This is social, as TJ Denver´s president THE JOAQUIN DEAD eloquently lays it down.
No other than THE B.Engel goes down under and digs into the sweaty, hard rockin´ lap of our new RnR darlings GRINDHOUSE from Australia. Give a hard listen to the band that perfectly fits our flabby sagging view of manly flesh and you will have all your dreams (and pants) filled with more than the usual vanilla cream. TJR has definitely jumped on this bandwagon.
We all know that Hank von Hell is back, spirit and middlefinger up in the air and arse. But guess what, enter Harry Neger, Turbonegro´s singer for the "Hot Cars and Spent Contraceptives" album. His new/old band Turbonecro zonkes out on Hashish, gives hard Librium Love and re-introduces us to brutal, raw Deathpunk to take Satan and the gaypunk community back to 1992.
Hank von Hell is back on stage. TJR didn´t waste any time and talked firsthand to TJ Karlstad´s president DJ MoB about his experience in Stockholm on Nov 2nd. How did Hank do? How is the band looking? Info on the Setlist? It´s all in there, take it all in.
It´s Tommy Manboy time again! Turbojugend Kyrkslätt´s president and TJ Ambassador Jyrki joins the TJ Radio staff and talked to Turbonegro´s sweatheart Tommy Manboy LIVE after a Turbonegro gig and yes, this includes the history behind Tommy´s makeup.
Plus, we´ll feature a legendary story about an even more legendary MVP from Central Valley, CA. “Thumbs” up, even if it hurts.
We´ve heard all the great and inspiring stories about the magic Guadalahamburg weekend in Mexico just a few weeks ago. Back to the heart and soul of Deathpunk, that´s what we hear. TJR asked CocoCaine, Tony Misfit and Commodore Strychnine to jump onboard and tell the eager audience about their wonderful personal experiences. Of course, these include Lucha Libre and Tequila.
Weltturbojugendtage 2018 is in the books and was –again- a true blast!
B. Engel and Tschebesta strip down to their Scandinavian Leather and review it for all the sad suckers out there, who couldn´t make it to the city of Hamburg. Plus: Hank von Hell´s new single!
What´s even hotter than this summer? Yeah, sweet-sweaty Turbonegro tunes, especially when gallantly guided and picturesquely structures by a well-handled electronic guitar. To make it short: Euroboy is in the house and talks at length about his style of music, the ways of Turbonegro and why he chose to wear a jump-suit during the current “R´n´R Machine" tour.
Besides the annual mandatory event Weltturbojugendtage in the Deathpunk capital of the world, Hamburg, a music festival in the US has emerged as a Denim drenched get-together for Sailors from overseas: the Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas. TJR took the chance and talked to El Mosquito of TJ Cologne, who gives an interesting overview over this year´s extravaganza in the desert plus an in depth comparison of PRB versus the WTJ
T. He even reveals Nevada´s delicious version of the Schlemmereck. Tune in.
TJR provides support in all aspects of life. Besides Denim and Deathpunk related help, we sure know how to get wasted. But what about the day after? TJR went out to start a new series about hangover food and travelled to Montréal to get a first bite into one bona fide culinary treat: the magic Poutine, the Jesus Christ, the premium savior of hangovers. With or without Coke. Have it your way.
