We have moved: Please change your bookmarks!

Hey peeps!
As you might have noticed there's not much happening here and that is because I kinda separated the CRKO Fanzine and Timmeheiehumme Records (aka THH Records) and made up new pages for both of 'em a while ago. You can find all important infos on those pages, so please change your bookmarks and feeds etc. to those pages:
Thanx a lot, keep on rockin'! :)

If you need further info, here you get it:
DIGGER & THE PUSSYCATS is just a dumb-arse 2-piece rock and roll band who have aged considerably since their first P.Trash Record way back in 2005. Their waistlines and man-boobs have developed, but their music has not. They haven't tried to re-invent the wheel with these new tracks, but they're definitely DIGGER songs that could easily slip onto any of their previous albums/singles. If you like the band you'll like the songs. If you don't like them, then save your money for the next Timmeheiehumme release, which will probably be a whole lot better than these two singles.
What do the new songs sound like? Consider it rock and roll with a bit of shabang! Moronic lyrics feature in the two songs drummer Andy sings. The two songs that guitarist Sam sings have slightly more intelligent lyrics, but not by much. Lyrical subject matter includes being taught by your father how to seduce women in the same way that he seduced your mother / taking a trip to Italy and being fortunate enough to find yourself at a Bunga Bunga party at Berlusconi's house / following Jesus' wishes to do unto others' bodies as you would have them do unto your own body / having inappropriate relations with your best friend's sister and hoping the he'll still let you stay at his holiday house.
On the pic above you see the front cover for each of the two tour-7"s. When they sit side by side, you can see the words "digger" and "pussy" running through the artwork to make it join up like the puzzle!
The artwork was done by Vanessa Imberger and features Andy's daughter's Grandmother in a bikini on a motorbike holding up a dead snake that she killed with a shovel. True story. Now if that ain't Australian, I don't know what is? They're all Crocodile Hunters down here. DIGGER & THE PUSSYCATS is about to come over to Europe on tour too, so check out our dates below and have a beer with the guys at a show somewhere near you. And if you don't like them, you can come down and bash 'em in the toilets…but only if you buy both of these new records.

THH Records - New Release: THH006 Mother's Children: See the Other Guy 7"

THH006 Mother's Children: See The Other Guy 7"
Euro-Tour-7inch (co-release with P.Trash Records)
Releasedate: Spring 2012
250 pieces green vinyl (Timmeheiehumme edition)
250 pieces clear vinyl (P.Trash edition)
Check their Euro-tourdates at the end of this post and see 'em live with MONDO RAY!
Hot off the release of the highly praised "Are You Tough Enough?" Mini LP, comes 2 brand new Power Pop crunchers from Mother’s Children. Since the release of their 2010 debut LP "That’s Who", we’ve seen Ma’s Kids go from stomping Glam Rock, to bubblegum smacking Pop, to pub-rocking proto-Punk and back again without skipping a beat. On this teaser of a single, they achieve pure Pop perfection 1979-style, bringing up comparisons to 20/20, The Plimsouls, Twilley/Seymour, The Shoes, Stiv Bators, and Gary Valentine.

Mother’s Children are coming out with a caliber Power Pop, unlike any other band in Canada right now, and they have all the amazing hooks, the brilliant harmonies, and the necessary skills to be the best in the business. Mother's Children have toured U.S.A. and Canada with Paul Collins’ Beat, The Biters, and The Barreracudas, and In May 2012, just in time for their new single, they embark on their first European Tour with Germany’s Mondo Ray. TermBo sez: "Absolutely bursting with exuberant hooks, liberal sprinklings of glitter and power-pop with some actual power."

THH Records - New Release: THH007 Brat Farrar: From Paris To Kabul 7"

THH007 Brat Farrar: From Paris To Kabul 7"
Releasedate: Spring 2012
400 pieces red vinyl
100 pieces clear vinyl (exclusive for P.Trash club-members)

THH007 - BRAT FARRAR: From Paris to Kabul 7" - In the middle you see the regular version on red wax. To the left one of the 100 copies in clear wax, for members of the P.Trash Records club only! To the right the testpressing of the record. Each copy will come with a sticker of the mighty CRKO Fanzine.

BRAT FARRAR is the new DIY-project/band of Australian wunderkind Sam Agostino. You know him from awesome outfits like DIGGER AND THE PUSSYCATS, KAMIKAZE TRIO or RUSSIAN ROULETTES! After sculpting his debut record (released on P.Trash Records) for several months BRAT FARRAR returned to the studio to smash out "From Paris to Kabul" his first ­follow-up single! This 7inch is also the tour-record for the BRAT FARRAR European tour from March 22 until April 30!

The song "From Paris to Kabul" shows a more metallic yet melodic edge than BRAT FARRAR’s previous releases and is yet another step in the evolution of BRAT FARRAR. Dig that punching bassline and freak out! On the flip "I Don't Care" shows BRAT FARRAR drawing his line in the sand and giving a solid middle finger salute to just about everything. A perfect bone-dry garage-rocksong, like only Australians can do it. The chorus will follow you for weeks! When your boss bullies you ... your girlfriend ran away ... and your beer is empty ... I don’t care!!! You can listen to the songs of this release here:

THH Records: More reviews from "High Heels Slut" Fanzine #11

I Remember How/Born On A Saturday Night (Timmeheiehumme / P Trash-7”)
RU Mental/Please Write (Dirtnap-7”)

Lotsa bands that embark on a tour together end up selling a split record between both of ’em. Very few bands though have two different split records for sale, and that’s quite exactly the fact with the Mean Jeans and White Wires. On the Timmeheiehumme/P Trash 45 both bands dive head first into a hit song by the other band. It doesn’t necessarily beat the original, but it gets a-movin’. The Dirtnap 45 have the Mean Jeans storming through “R U Mental”, a great tune that could have been a cover song of a Marked Men track that somehow fell off their debut album. Just to say it’s fucking great!! “Please Write” by the White Wires is a slower to mid tempo kinda power pop song that still has enough grit to please our dirty mind. Good song, but overall the Mean Jeans beat the Canucks though.

European Tour 2011 (P Trash/Timmeheiehumme-7”)

When both Canadian bands toured Europe earlier this year they brought along this piece o’ wax to their merch stand. Steve Adamyk Band sounds a lil’ rawer on these recordings than on their previous releases and it suits ‘em pretty well. Next to a neat original they also do a cool job on “Eternal Isolation” off the great Idle Hands debut 7”. More powerpop is to be found on the flip with the Sonic Avenues, though the stress is more on the pop here. Also one original and a cover for them (a Sweet Baby tune). Not bad, but I guess I’ll play this only when it’s around 30 °C outside. SAB gets my preference.

Sleeping With The Stereo On (Timmeheiehumme-7”)

Sleeping with the stereo on, well, that happens from time to time, though in my case it’s mostly with the TV on, but let’s not get into that. The Zygoteens hail from Milwaukee, WI and feature Jake from the great Gut Reactions on guitar. Zygoteens crank out some highly energetic, catchy punk tunes, bringing to mind the very first Manikins 7”. There’s also a constant Undertones feeling, that really surfaces in the opening riff of “Wait And See”. All of this shit was captured on tape in a powerful way by Bob Burns (from the Breakups). The label is by the way run by the guy from Corporate Rock Knock Out zine, so this guy is totally in the right shit. And thank god I’m not American to pronounce the name of his label correctly! But, what’s most important, this is a cool effort all over that for sure could cause some turmoil in the underground!
