HIGH-SCHOOL MOTHERFUCKERS
Vign_High_School_Motherfuckers_FB_COVER

High-School Motherfuckers played their very first gig as a tribute to the RAMONES along with Jean Beauvoir (Kiss, Ramones, Plasmatics, Little Steven...) himself. Encouraged by that gig and the few shows that followed that were all a success, the band went on recording the 5-track E.P. "Want some ?!". The C.D. was well received by the public and got good reviews and fanzines worldwide started circulating the band’s name.

HSMF —as fans dubbed them— then took one more step. They were featured on various compilations and they brought their compelling punkrock all over Europe, in countries ranging from Switzerland to Hungary through the Netherlands and Denmark, playing along with such bands as the New York Dolls, Gilby Clarke (ex-Guns n’ Roses), Nashville Pussy, The Quireboys, L.A. Guns, Kip Winger, Lizzy Borden, Vains of Jenna, The Joystix, Punish Yourself, Black Rain, American Dog, Adam Bomb, Black Halos, Black Rain, Sticky Boys, Dirty Penny, Psychopunch, Adam West, Turbo AC’s, +44 (ex-Blink 182).
More determined and motivated than ever, the four punkrockers, raised on the Ramones, Motörhead and other Sex Pistols then embarked on recording their first full-length album "Backseat Education", 11 tracks made out of the raw energy and sheer intensity of the band’s live performances. It was then time to hit the roads of Europe again, not forgetting to work on new material at the same time.
Back into the studio and, proudly announced by the "Jesus ep" single, the HSMF’s new album of 11 brand new songs is now available. "Say you just don't care" offers tracks that are finely carved, yet retaining as always and once again, the explosive and joyful frenzy, now a hallmark of the band’s music ; high-powered rythms mingle with heavy riffs and catchy melodies, in the manner of fellow
Scandinavian bands like The Hellacopters, Backyard Babies, The Bones or even Hardcore Superstar.
In 2016 with old partner in crime Blondie they decided to make a split cd with his band :The JOYSTIX ! 10 brand new tracks, 5 rn'r treasure of punk/rock/hard/glam (call it what you want) per band ! With that new opus in hand, the four punkrockers are back on the road and they can hardly wait to meet you there to share with you those genuine rock n'roll moments that are their live performances.

So, are you ready !!? Let’s go !!!

RAKEL TRAXX
Vign_groupe_logo_fond_noir
Rakel Traxx is more than a band, it’s a bunch of friends, hanging out together since they were kids and for whom Sex, Drugs & Rock n’Roll is not just phrase but a real credo. The band started in Marseille (french riviera), their hometown, where they were used to messing around in the few clubs & bars. One of these nights, they decided to create Rakel Traxx, a Sleaze rock band tainted with punk & metal, as a tribute to LA’s 1980 glam scene.

Their influences go from Guns n’Roses, Motley Crue, Vain, Pretty Boy Floyd to ST or Metallica. Their vision of glam rock goes with powerfull guitar riffs, bonecrushing drums, a sreaming voice and killer melodies.

In 2008, they record their first EP and hit the road in France & Europe with bands as Hardcore Superstar, Pretty Boy Floyd, Adam Bomb, Gemini Five Blackrain and Dagoba. Their shows are a precise mix of raw energy & glitters, their live reputation is no longer to be made, and fans are already asking for more, they simply rock the stage out.

In 2010, the band is back in studio for their first album « Bitches Palace » released on Shotgun Generation Records in 2011. This album will, without a doubt, write their name within the Sleaze rock legends. Stay tuned, they’ll be back on the road pretty soon.

NASTY KIXX
Vign_nasty_2
The story of Nasty Kixx started at a party one hot summer night back in '98. Partygoers and pals Bastard, Fabio Esteban and Dr. Rowdy stepped outside for some air and some more liquor, accidently bumped into this longhaired dude, which they quickly baptised Trashcan Dan. Inviting the guy in, sharing drinks and discovering a shared taste in fine rock n' roll. The band was a fact!

After massive rehearsals and gigging they recorded their first offering titled "The greatest hits and the nastiest kixx", in May of 2000. The recording featured the underground classic; "Mrs. Bottle", still a fan favourite. Two demos, "Still kickin'" and "The Pirates of rock n' roll" were recorded in 2001. Pretty unpretentious rock n' roll w. poppy hooks. "Pirates…" also marked the last performance by Dr. Rowdy. Reportedly lost on a cruise to Finland. Rumored to be tired of the rn'r lifestyle. No one knows.

Enter Dr. Denial! A mutual friend w. a "don't give a hoot" attitude, was an obvious choice as a replacement for the other "Doc". The 2002 "Just another day" demo showed the "Kixx" were now leaning towards a more dark, melancholic sound. Yet maintaining their dogs' nose for a good riff and chorus. The word was now spreading. The band recieving great reviews on websites and in magazines worldwide.

Nasty Kixx spent a sweatsoaked weekend in July of 2003 recording an excellent selftitled disc. Crammed w. great hooks and harmonies supported by the sweet backup vocals courtesy of the Nasty Dolls. This also showcased the first appearence by new member and organmeister Burt Backfire, making the band a rocksolid unit.

A bright light shone through the winter darkness in February of 2004. "Hometown Blues" is a ten song blast of whiskey and cream, melancholy and upbeat partyanthems! Except for the four new hits and a rendition of "Bastard Song", the recording features four older tracks spiced up with Mr. Backfires excellent keywork. Let's not forget a quite sped up version of the Hanoi Rocks classic masterpiece "Tragedy", ending it all. Tasty! In May of 2005 this record was released as a "real" album on French label Shotgun Generation. The praising reviews instantly came flooding in, leaving no one disappointed. The world of rock n' roll had a new favourite pet to cuddle & love!

In the winter of 2006 bad news once again arrived, and this time Doc Denial had to jump ship for reasons unknown...Rumours said he dipped his 'stache where it shouldn't be dipped.... At about the same time fretboardrunner Fabio decided he'd switch locations and hit the big city. Burt just vaporized after the news 'bout Doc. He apparently moved to the city and no longer fingers the ebony and ivory.. The Kixx now had their balls in a vice and had to put 'em on ice, at least 'til they find a new bassplayer fit for the job! SO....the Story Continues....
