Theme song for Ramasjang Rally

We can’t imagine anyone else better for the job than Powersolo. The guys have made the theme song for the television program Ramasjang Rally (a soapbox derby for kids – so cool!). You can catch the song and video on the Danish channel DR Ramasjang these days but if you don’t own a TV (God knows why) or ain’t a Dane you can watch the pretty amazing video right here. And for all English speaking fans: the song is in Danish but you can still watch the rockabilly styled kids and their soapbox cars – so cute!

Ramasjang Rally will air Friday 31st of August 18.30 at DR Ramasjang right before Disney
Show (you Danes know what we are talking about). Until then go out in your garage, look behind your old dusty boxes, take your soapbox car and get ready for a speedy soapbox derby!

The life of an extraordinary man

Everyone who knows Powersolo knows lead singer Kim Kix, a man with a story so very different from the stories of “normal” people that listening to him talking is really pas mal. And now you can. If you understand Danish, that is. Take a bike ride into this beautiful interview directed by Jakob Printzlau.

Crunchy Club @ The Wheelbarrow in Camden by Kristoffer 20. January 2012

Crunchy Frog will bring Powersolo, Lars & The Hands Of Light, Thee Attacks and loads more to London for a three months night club residency

Over the coming months we will be presenting af new wave of signings to the UK. We will be doing so at a little something called Crunchy Club at The Wheelbarrow in Camden.

We will bring over two bands from our roster on each date along with a choice selection of DJs spinning brilliant tunes all night. Over the course of the three months residency, theacts performing will make our crunchy presence felt.

Crunchy Club has been put together in collaboration with esteemed London promoter 5000. Entry is free and the lineups are as follows:

Snake & Jet's Amazing Bullit Band

Buzz Human

Crunchy Frog has a whole new wave of bands coming to the UK and they are all grade A high caliber touring acts, as previous Crunchy Frog bands such as Junior Senior, The Raveonettes, 18th Dye and Heavy Trash.

We are a home brew kind of label where the people working at Crunchy HQ are deeply involved with the artists and their albums and actually there is also a lot of connections between previous Crunchy acts and the ones we will be presenting over the next couple of months. For instance, members of Powersolo and The Tremolo Beer Gut – another brilliant Crunchy act – have been part of Heavy Trash’s touring band for years and have played on UK tours several times.

Lars Vognstrup from Lars & The Hands Of Light was also in Junior Senior – he actually grew up with those guys and in Lars & The Hands Of Light they channel similar influences, however, in a slightly less mainstream but equally addictive way.

Thee Attacks are no strangers to London as their debut album was produced in the Toe Rag Studios by the very crunchy Liam Watson (White Stripes’ Elephant). Thee Attacks have also repeatedly been praised by Mojo Magazine and found themselves on Mojo’s “7 best bands at SXSW 2011”-list, and the boys will be going back to wreak more havoc in Austin. Keeping it familiar, Ritchie Attack often plays the live drums for Powersolo by the way.

Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band are very crunchy. They are an edgy and groovy duo from Copenhagen and they feed  the fire of their sparsely vocaled funky cocktail with screeching guitars and vintage synths creating a very unique retroish modern style. It will please your educated ears as well as move your feet slightly beyond a gentle tapping.

Label boss Jesper ‘Yebo’ Reginal, co-founder along with Sune Wagner from The Raveonettes of The Tremolo Beer Gut, reminisce some of the crunchiest memories of previous London gigs: “I was a drummer with Junior Senior back in their heyday and have a lot of great memories from smaller venues, TV-shows and bigger venues. The five star treatment is certainly nice – especially when your’re not used to it – however, I’m a rock ‘n’ roll kind of guy so i guess the best stuff comes from just being in town a lot and making new friends and discovering crunchy record stores and after hours clubs like a fine ‘snooker club’ with an open bar. Someone took us there after a Powersolo gig a few years ago. I felt like we saw a side of London tourists never get to see, and that’s what it’s all about innit? Getting your kicks and enjoying the stranger, crunchier fruits.”

“Business wise of course, the success of Junior Senior and The Raveonettes tops everything, but going out and playing shows with Heavy Trash in rock clubs was just as much fun and a real eye opener in many ways.”

“London goers at the Crunchy Club shows can expect a top notch, crunchy performance from brilliant bands. In fact, if they weren’t awesome and rocked on stage they wouldn’t be Crunchy Frog material. So it’s satisfaction guaranteed or you get your money back! Did I mention admission is free?”

“Also, be on the lookout for The Malpractice, a new addition to our crunchy family. All the members also play in Beta Satan, a cruncy band for years (checkout their album “Girls”, it is truly amazing). The Malpractice however, is a friendlier but still fairly evil incarnation of that band: bad ass, depressing, angst driven indie rock you can get your groove on to…if your family is the fucking Manson family…to quote James Ellroy”

The Malpractice

Yesterday, the brilliant new “Teach You Fun” music video from Powersolo premiered with what seems like shocked, surprising, positive and a bit confused feelings all over the line. Oh well, it is a rather thought provoking video in several ways, we think, and definetely worth waiting for. But what is your opinion?
