The Vibrators (UK) + Frau Blücher and the drünken horses
THE VIBRATORS :
First wave U.K. Punk Rock since 1976. Still touring and recording.
With a career lasting thirty-three years, vocalist/guitarist IAN « KNOX » CARNOCHAN, bassist PAT COLLIER, guitarist JOHN ELLIS and drummer EDDIE originally formed the VIBRATORS in February 1976, and their first gig was supporting THE STRANGLERS at Hornsey Art College in North London. They supported THE SEX PISTOLS at the 100 CLUB and were one of the bands playing at the now legendary 100 CLUB PUNK ROCK FESTIVAL, where as well as doing their own set they supported guitar hero CHRIS SPEDDING. CHRIS recommended the band to his then record company, RAK. The band’s debut single « WE VIBRATE » came out in November (one of the first punk singles) and was followed two weeks later by CHRIS SPEDDING’S « POGO DANCING » single with the VIBRATORS as the band on that.
Frau Blücher and the drünken horses :
Frau Blücher and the drünken horses are a female fronted Punk N Roll band from Brussels, Belgium. The band started in 2011 from what was initially meant to be a one-time jam.
The band released three full-length albums made of original material only: « Quick & Dirty » in January 2013, « Lethal Pill Cocktail » in October 2014 and « Über Fenomenal » in March 2017(all on P.O.G.O. Records). Frau Blücher’s songs are written in the vein of the 70’s/80’s Punk & Heavy Rock and inspired by the likes of the Ramones, L7, Motörhead, Vice Squad, Plasmatics and many others.
Frau Blücher and the drünken horses use to play around twenty gigs a year from small pubs to larger venues. Lately the band was chosen to open for The Addicts, The Lords Of Altamont, Nashville Pussy and The BellRays. The concerts of the Frau are direct, powerful, restless and highly participative!
For the record, the name of the band is taken from a character in Mel Brooks’ movie « Young Frankenstein », a woman who has a strange relationship with horses.
