Sometimes they still
come out crawling out of the holes, those old english punk relicts, who
once upon a time revolted against politics and soiety. Although it
didn't help much, they were so beloved at the end Seventies youth,
becouse they wanted to be different to the conservative adults. And that
again, only to become the same some years later...
Those icons back then were named Sex Pistols, the Clash, Toydolls,
Exploited, Sham 69, The Dead Kennedys, just to name a few and the one's
we've got here tonight, named Peter & The Testtube Babies. They
never reached a popularity status such as the Sex Pistols or the Clash,
but they certainly belonged to the punk scene with songs like 'Banned
From The Pubs' and 'Elvis Is Dead'. The group around Peter Bywaters has
released 13 albums since 1978 and 3 EP's and 3 compilations. And
although the Testtube Babies have never split inbetween, they had large
breaks inbetween most of all between 1998 and 2005.
And for six years Peter, meanwhile a father of four, is still touring
happily through the world always including some dates in Germany around
christmas time. And so Santa Claus from Brighton, England
pops around just before christmas, to our Backstage Halle here in Munich
to beat the hell outta us with their punk.
But before Peter gets the place boiling, - opener Armstrong starts
to get the oven heated.....
