The 405 Magazine has premiered the psychedelic new video for COSMIC ARC from Snake And Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band. Yet an awesome piece by band member Laura Rathschau.
If you listened to Det Elektriske Barometer last night it’s not a big secret – Barometeret loves Crunchy Frog! A couple of weeks ago Lars and The Hands of Light were on The Barometer List. And now it’s Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band’s turn. They are one of the ‘Boblere’ this week with their new single “Stalker”.
It’s Friday, J-dag (a day where all the Danes act crazy and drink beers with blue hats on their heads) and it’s the day where Gaffa announces the nominees for this year’s GAFFA-Prisen. Among all the nominees Crunchy Frog are proud to have Thee Attacks and Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band – that’s pretty cool! The two bands are actually nominated in the same categories and that’s “Danish Rock Release of the Year” and “Danish Band of the Year”. We’re gonna give you a big fat kiss if you’re voting for them – all you need to do is click right HERE!
Crunchy Frog loves Christmas. So we have decided to throw you all an amazing Christmas party. It will take place at Pumpehuset, the 8th of December, and we´ve got a whole bunch of cool stuff going on. First of all we will give you 9 bands including “Apparat Organ Quartet”– coming all the way from Iceland,“Powersolo” and even “Beta Satan”. We will give you awesome DJ´s and you will also receive a free beer when you enter the doors of Pumpehuset. Furthermore there will be extremely cheap n´crunchy merchandise for sale, so if you are looking for a awesome Christmas present to give to your mother in law, you may find it here as well. All this fun, and christmas joy will only cost you 150 danish kroner.
Ohhh – and if you have children we suggest you drag them to Pumpehuset in the morning – because we´ve also arranged at Crunchy Kids Xmas Manité, were Hr.Skæg and Ramasjang Rally stars Powersolo will be performing.
And speaking about fun, we have a competition for you as well. Answer the following question, and win 2 tickets to this awesome night:
“The Raveonettes, Sterling, Powersolo and Thee Attacks have all released a Christmas song on Crunchy Frog. What’s the name of these 4 songs?”

This Thursday there’s only three places you should be (if you’re in Copenhagen) – either at Blågårds Apotek, Harbo Bar or Understellet. You may wonder why and that’s what we’re going to tell you now. Thursday it’s Spil Dansk Dagen (you Danes know what we’re talking about) and to celebrate the day three bands have decided to play three concerts at three pubs.
Now you may have a bunch of question but just lean back and listen – the bands are The Tremolo Beer Gut, Tempomatador and Snake & Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band and they will each be at one of the pubs 9 pm and after a concert switch places and play another concert etc. (see the schedule HERE) Yeah, that means you can catch three concerts with your favourite band or three concerts with three different bands – we hope you will play along and enjoy the alternative pub crawl.
A little week ago we posted the video for “Black Egg” by Snake & Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band – a pretty dizzy video that almost makes you puke up your breakfast! Now you can get a look behind the scenes for the shooting of the video. The production team M&E have uploaded a video where you can see how they made the spinning video. And they actually didn’t add any effects to the footage in post-production – a true DIY video!
If you’re eating then put your food down on the plat, lean back and hold on! After a couple of months Snake & Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band are finally ready to show you the video for their first single “Black Egg” from the album “Stuff That Rotates” – and that’s pretty much what’s happening in this video for more than three minutes. So if you wanna start your week with a spin take a look at this video – we dare you to see it in full screen!
Here at Crunchy Frog we’re overly excited by this amazing review from SUNDAY TIMES:
Snake & Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band’s newest album “Stuff That Rotates” receives recognition from many others…
Here are some examples:
SPOT 2012 is over. Thanks to all who came out to the concerts with Shiny Darkly, Snake & Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band and Thee Attacks. We enjoyed you enjoying them, yes. Below is some kind words about the release parties Friday and our official Crunchy Club SPOT showcase Saturday.
British CLASH MUSIC joined us at the release party and they liked what they saw:
“Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band boast groin-friendly psychedelic grooves and a mesmerising dynamic between the gawky frontman and supercool Agyness Dean-alike on bass. They’ve got the full package: style, songs, sublime riffs – do catch them next time they darken your neck of the woods.”
“Thor, Thomas and Laura delivered a set that oozed of energy, groovy basslicks, and a lovely playfull guitar, all delivered with a confident smile.”
Junk De Luxe
“The combination of guitar, bass, drums and vocal is not easily made exciting – but Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band manages it to surprisingly great extent.”
Shiny Darkly had their sort-of-first-concert-outside-CPH-debut at SPOT. With no less than four concerts during the weekend, it is only fair to say that they made a depressingly beautiful first appearance in Aarhus. Gaffa, Soundvenue, Clash Music and Drowned in Sound agree:
“Every note and every beat sounded as if it was a matter of life and death”
“The ability to repress the anger and the smouldering gloominess without ever letting it explode is the core in Shiny Darklys expression”
“Shiny Darkly are one of the acts we’d been tipped about in advance, a youthful outfit from Copenhagen who play punky shoegaze, led by a chap who looks like Alex Kapranos’ younger brother – they’re wonderfully, chunkily energetic.”
“Singer Kristoffer Bech holds court in the centre of the stage, asking repeatedly “Who’s suicidal?” before launching into the band’s Bunnymen infused anthem ‘He’s Suicidal’. One song even sounds like The Horrors covering ‘Anarchy In The UK’ (no, we aren’t kidding). Sure, it may have been done before but judging by the trio’s cold demeanour, Shiny Darkly sincerely mean it, man.”
DROWNED IN SOUND
Once again Thee Attacks tore SPOT apart. Not that we expected anything less. If you missed the show, you have to read this review (if you were there, you should still read it, of course). It’s good. And funny. And every word is very true. Thee Attacks is the combination between a modern-day-Danish-Elvis and an old-school porn star with a unruly moustache. Yes.
“intriguing and down right impressive as they delivered a flawless, confident performance that radiated maturity and experience.”
Indie Rock Reviews
Hopefully everyone has just as good a time as we had. But of course you had – with SPOT, Aarhus and all this crunchiness, who could ask for more? With all this said: thanks again for a great festival, see you next year!
Speaking of the new Snake & Jet release, you can stream the whole damn thing over at Soundvenue and in WiMP right now. It’s a beauty, so, honestly, it’s beyond us that you’re still reading this… go listen!
See you at the release party, which is highly recommended by the fine folks at Jägerland!
