A Tribute to Turbonegro
Twenty-six bands pay tribute to one of Norway’s best hair metal heavy stoner death punk bands, Turbonegro. This music may not be for everyone, but to those inspired, they were a force to be reckoned with and remembered. Bands ranging from Nashville Pussy to Therapy? to The Supersuckers (my personal favorite — a Ramonesy riffing take on “Get It On”) throw themselves into the ring with bands like HIM from Finland, Germany’s Denim Girl, Brazil’s Ratos De Porao, and even Motosierra from Uruguay. Queens of the Stone Age throw out a hair-shaking rave-up, while Zeke delivers a quick ultra-punk “Midnight Nambla.” The liner notes make for a good read, the art is Frank Kozik, and like Spacebitch sings, “Don’t say motherfucker•” — no, say Turbonegro!
