PowerSolo may be a power duo, but in this case, the prog-metal acrobatics of Rush are replaced with something they call "donkey punk." Two tremolo-loving chicken-scratch rail-thin guitarists, Kim Kix and the Atomic Child. It would've been well enough had Powersolo hailed from the Land of NASCAR, but the fact that this exercise in B-movie punk-a-billy is coming from Aarhus, Denmark, adds plenty of delicious cognitive dissonance.

What do you think of when you hear the name "PowerSolo"? 'Round Denmark way, the moniker apparently conjures the trash-rock psychobilly legacy of Hasil Adkins, the Cramps, and Southern Culture on the Skids So far they have been the masterminds behind five albums, a soundtrack, a 10”-split with Heavy Trash, two 7”-singles and several contributions to compilations. They are hardworking and dedicated people who wake up every morning just to play music. Maybe that’s why PowerSolo never stop touring but always have a new gig planned somewhere in the world.


POWERSOLO are two tremolo-loving chicken-scratch rail-thin guitarists, Kim Kix and the Atomic Child, who hail from the Danish town of Arhus and conjure up the trash-rock psychobilly legacy of Hasil Adkins, the Cramps, and Southern Culture on the Skids, delivering a string of catchy tunes with crazy lyrical hooks that could have been one hit wonder seven-inchers back in the 1950s, ’60s or even the ’70s. They are the type ofype of songs that could be found on the Las Vegas Grind and Nuggets compilations, music you can dance to, prance to, rock and roll (in the biblical sense) to, and get into some serious trouble to, celebrating a time when music had a sense of fun, sex and danger to it.

“Massive and mobile, revved-up and smirking wired manic relentlessness with polished precision musicianship and plenty of gratuitous sonic elegance and refinement within their genre-shifting role playing. But no matter what they try these guys can really make it come to life (..)
So good it’s ridiculous!”
- Dream Magazine, USA

“People were just losing their shit all around me, it was infectious.(..) At any rate, they are seriously talented musicians and the crowd was really having a great time at this show.”
