Deadbatz & The Psychonauts
Two musicians, three instruments, zero guitars: The DeadBeatz are the most compressed blues-punk band in the world, with the energy of two V8 engines! Not only do the two Austrians do without a guitarist. They have also opted for the anything but ordinary combination of harmonica, double bass and drums. Thereby David Karlinger operates the gunpowder mainly with his feet, while he is busy on the harp. Bernie Miller is responsible for bass and lead vocals. The result is a straightforward groovy mix of blues, punk and a pinch of rockabilly. While they’ve made every crowd dance live so far, the rockers focused on producing a new album during the pandemic. „Meet Us At Dawn“ is the name of the new long player, which will be released in November 2021 on the punk rock label SBÄM Records. Meet Us At Dawn will be in bright red and blue not only visually an eye-catcher: David and Bernie worked with various producers and songwriters to exploit the full range of their sound. Thus, the quiet blues number „Oh Evening“ (video premiere on Rockabilly Rules) stands in stark contrast to songs like the stompy rock n roll song „Cold Nose Bleeds“.DeadBeatz, that’s two of a kind and it’s pretty powerful – hopefully they’ll soon be back on your bikes to race onto the stages of this world!
Since autumn 2009, The Psychonauts have quaked venues with their "Hoochie Coochie Trash'a'Billy" sound. Their explosive mix between 50's Rockabilly, 60's Garage Trash, 70's Punk and 80's Psychobilly sounds like it may have come from outer space. But The Psychonauts actually hail from Basel (Switzerland) and have taken their name from the patients of the discoverer of LSD, the Basler Albert Hofmann. Soon after the band formed they were playing with such Psychobilly legends as: Demented Are Go, Mad Sin, The Frantic Flintstones, The Klingonz among others. Tremendous T. (Vox/Guitar), Caruso (Bass) and Oily (Drums) have been on the scene for many years and know what's what. Their live show is especially impressive, consisting of original material and a couple of cover versions of Rockabilly classics, enhanced by their own unique style. Right from the first second, The Psychonauts let loose their "Hoochie Coochie Trash'a'Billy Stomp" on the audience, with the motto "Wreck it and shake it up
