Batmobile - Biography and Releases:


Batmobile was founded 1983. After several months of covering Elvis Presley, Johnny Burnette and Gene Vincent, Jeroen Haamers (vocals/guitar), Johnny Zuidhof (drums) and Eric Haamers (double bass) decided to start to write their own material and all of a sudden people started to call the mental Dutch threesome 'psychobillies'.

In 1985 the first Batmobile album was released, which led to international recognition. For the first time a non-british band headlined all international psychobilly festivals.

The second half of the eighties and the first half of the nineties the band is touring through Germany, France, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and England. The band is headlining numerous times in the legendary KlubFoot in London.

The releases of the band are consistent in the concept of sounding different every time. The band hates to cover itself so the Batmo gents are always in search of new sounds within the rockabilly/psychobilly spectrum. This leads to the very first (and ever so often copied) metal-sounds within the scene on their 1988 realease Bail's Set...... but ofcourse also to the back to basics release Amazons from Outer Space (1989) and the massive concept mini-album Batmobile is Dynamite (1990). If ever there's a band ahead of things within rockabilly/psychobilly it's Batmobile.

In 1997 the band waves psychobilly goodbye and introduces their own brand of Rock n Roll B-music. Like in a B-film, B-music stand for B-musicians, bad (read: funny) jokes, horror, nakid women and having the time of your life. So theres not a big difference with decent psychobilly.

The second half of the nineties Batmobile does a lot of concerts in the Jukebox Tour in which the audience decides what the band should play. Their first concert in New York is being taped and released on film and will be the last concert before a 3 year break.

In 2001 the album titled A Tribute To Batmobile is released on a Japanese label. On the album all kinds of bands from all over the world play Batmobile songs. Batmobiles own contribution on the album is called Baby Go Back Home. In 2003 'A Tribute to Batmobile part 2' was released and the band recorded the song Deep Down for it.

In 2003 the band makes one live appearance in Germany which makes Batmobile decide to start doing more live performances again starting 2004. Since then they have been doing concerts in the Netherlands, Japan, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Brazil and the US/Hollywood.

Now the band just contributed a live version of Kiss Me Now on the Kaiser Records 'Soundtrack to Oblivion' and has recorded the old Warren Smith classic Ubangi Stomp for the Stray Cats Tribute record 'Go Cat Go' for Baseline Music.

Guana Batz - "Nightwath"

- Nightwatch

Well there's a house on the corner, looks really bad
The people who live their, they is all mad
They're yelling at the windows when no ones around, and all eat carrots and spit on the ground

You wouldn't believe the things that i see's
On the nightwatch

Well you crushed on my baby, looking at the sky
All the things i see, they make me wonder why
The things i do, the things i say
Well the people i know i wish they would fade away

You wouldn't believe the things that i see's
On the nightwatch

Well you maybe walking, on your way home
You get a feeling, your not alone
You can't feel a noise, you can't see a thing
Well i'm watching you with an evil grin.

You wouldn't believe the things that i see's
On the nightwatch
Oh no, you wouldn't believe the things that i see's
On the nightwatch
Well, you wouldn't believe the things that i see's
On the nightwatch

Torment - "Time To Think"

Time To Think

Why do you keep on chasing me?
Why won’t you let me alone?
Stumbling in from peak to peak
Your feelings have been sown

Oh well I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Now I know I’m out of control
Won’t you give me another drink?
I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Don’t you let me sink?

What the hell gives you the right to look at me that way?
What makes you so perfect?
There’s nothing left to say

Oh well I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Now I know I’m out of control
Won’t you give me another drink?
I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Don’t you let me sink?

Why do you keep on chasing me?
Why won’t you let me alone?
Stumbling in from peak to peak
Your feelings have been sown

Oh well I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Now I know I’m out of control
Won’t you give me another drink?
I just need time to work things out
I just need time to think
Don’t you let me sink?

The Quakes - "Planet Obscure"

E o Paul Roman continua brilhante e genial,como sempre! Em seu novo trabalho, o padrão de qualidade do Quakes continua mais forte do que nunca. No álbum anterior, o excelente "Negative Charge", a banda chegou em um ponto alto de sua carreira com um trabalho primoroso, um disco que ganhou somente elogios da mídia especializada em todo o mundo.

"Planet Obscure", o novo álbum, tudo continua se mantendo em alto nível, onde o Quakes consegue dosar com muito sucesso todas as influências da banda como o rockabilly,psycho,new wave ou pop. A melodia, que é sua marca registrada, segue presente em todas as canções, que ficam "grudadas" logo de cara quando você escuta, e se tornam novos "hits" e clássicos imediatos para os fãs da banda!

Não espere nada como o primeiro disco,canções rápidas e furiosas. Isso é coisa do passado,bem distante. Nem letras "psycho", falando de tópicos tão "originais" no estilo como zumbis,filmes-b ou monstros, nada disso. Paul Roman segue ainda como o mais original escritor no estilo, preferindo abordar temas mais realistas ou diretos em suas letras, fugindo totalmente dos clichês abordados pelos grupos rockabilly/psycho em sua maioria. É difícil destacar canções em um disco tão bom! Mas mesmo assim fico com "Dark Shadows","Promisse","Streets Are So Lonely" ( fantástica!) e "This Night" como minhas favoritas no momento.

Um ponto curioso no disco para os brasileiros é uma versão um tanto inusitada para uma música da Xuxa (!) chamada "Festa do Estica e Puxa"!! A gravação é de primeira,e foi produzido pelo Paul Roman - ele também gravou as linhas de baixo em todo o disco - e o formato é digipack,com todas as letras e demais informações no encarte. Você pode também comprar o "Planet Obscure"" diretamente com a banda: www.thequakes.com
