POWERSOLO: Danish 'Donkey-Punk' Legends Pony Up USA Tour Dates Ahead of SXSW Showcase & New LP/EP Release

Press release   •   Feb 12, 2019 02:30 GMT

Heads up Muthafuckas!

Danish rock and roll legends PowerSolo are bringing their circus over to the USA to support the brand new 7-inch “Transfixing Motherfucker”  just out via Slovenly and a newly pressed USA edition of their 2018 killer long platter offering "Bo-Peep" which officially comes out in March on Dirty Water Records USA.

BO-PEEP was conceived, written and partially recorded during an extended weekend of solitary recluse at the Waikiki of Denmark. One man. One guitar. One kick drum. One microphone. Two bottles of absinthe. Once back in the big, bad, Jutlandian metropolis of Aarhus Kix added more guitars, drums, organs and his old secret weapon: The tripple bass. He even met up with his Railthin Brother Bo who laid down a few dope beats on a couple of songs for Christ and old times’ sake. Mixing was achieved through the divine intervention of Mr. Nik Heyman, and a final layer of dirt was shoveled into the woodchipper by Emil Thomsen at ET Mastering. 17 songs in total. The ones too strong for unlimited release were chosen to comprise the 7-inch 45rpm wonder that is PEEK-A-BO. Released to a limited USA pressing of 300 copies on green vinyl.

The Power of Solo

2019 is the year of the SOLO. The Atomic Child that so many many years rode alongside Brother Kix on a horse called Mule and defeated audiences across the Globus with his mighty axe decided to take a load off and lay his barking dawgs to rest by the fireplace at Casa Railthin. Enjoying his PowerOtium looking at all the platinum records, Grannies and other prestigious awards and sparkling trophies from two decades of confrontational badassery on stage and record both, Brother Beaueserves nothing but our utmost respect and praise for his lifelong dedication to rock’n’roll and beyond.

But The PowerSolo forges on. A juggernaut through the big, black narcotic night, Kim Kix and his merry band is once again setting sail towards the clubs, festivals, dives, concert halls, your mother’s house, bars, ball rooms and other entertainment establishments. And this year they’re armed with fresh kick-face material taken from  Both releases that will be available on all futuristic megapixel bitcoin platforms in due course, but you can skip that and order them HERE and  HERE from both establishments. But, why not kill two birds with just one donkey-punk and go see the band LIVE and give them your shekels for BOTH of these fine wax offerings instead?

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.

Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, Country Teasers, Black Lips, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers, The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.

Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
