The Carburetors (NOR)
The Carburetors is a hard rock band from Oslo, Norway. The band was formed in 2001 and the music is based on boogie rock'n'roll and metal. Their music has been said to be a mix of Chuck Berry and Motörhead.
The band released their first album “Pain is Temporary, Glory is Forever” on Facefront Records in 2004 after several CD singles and 7" vinyls. Two video-tracks were produced from the album, and the one for “Burnout” was the second most aired video on Norwegian television in 2004.
Their second album “Loud Enough to Raise the Dead” was recorded during the summer of 2005, and a video was produced for the single track “Rock'n'Roll Forever”. The Carburetors released their third album “Rock'n'Roll Forever” on Bodog Records in 2008. In 2011 The Carburetors signed a new record deal with the German label I Hate People Records and a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing.
The Adolescents (USA)
The Adolescents are an American punk band formed in 1980 in Fullerton, California. It is a punk supergroup, made up of early members of Agent Orange and Social Distortion. They are often credited as one of the leading bands of the 1980s hardcore punk scene.
For more than 30 years after its inception, the Adolescents have had many member changes. The band broke up and reformed twice, sometimes with different guitarists, bass players and/or drummers. Their first break up was sometime after the release of their 1981 heavily influential self-titled debut album, when some members of the band were involved in their own projects, including Agent Orange and D.I.. However, the Adolescents reunited in 1986 and released two more albums (Brats in Battalions in 1987 and Balboa Fun*Zone in 1988) before splitting up again in 1989.
The band once again reunited in 2001 for a 20th anniversary tour and has continued performing ever since. They released OC Confidential, their first studio album in 17 years in 2005, followed by 2011's album “The Fastest Kid Alive”.
The band has influenced many notable punk, alternative and hard rock/metal groups, including Bad Religion, NOFX, Face to Face, Good Riddance, The Offspring, Pennywise, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fu Manchu, Mudhoney, Blink-182 and The Vandals.
The Adolescents created fast, energetic music that was at the forefront of the Orange County punk music scene.
Big D &The Kids Table (USA)
Big D and the Kids Table is a third-wave ska/punk band formed in October 1995 in Allston Village, Boston, Massachusetts signed to Springman Records. Members of the band also run the Boston, Massachusetts area record label, Fork In Hand Records, which has released numerous albums from Big D and the Kids Table and other local Boston artists. Their music often reflects members’ personal lives, especially the financial difficulties that many members have faced in the past.
In 2000 the band recorded a gangsta rap album, Porch Life, and distributed it unofficially via cassette tape. In 2003 the album was officially released on CD through Fork In Hand. They have also recorded splits with Melt Banana, Brain Failure and Drexel.
