21-09-04 12:02 FRONTKICK 39 Guns By MIKE

FRONTKICK was born in December 1999 as, Marti Neurotic and Victor Bisonte moved away from Mallorca island and landed in Berlin, they split up with their old band “OI! The Arrase” and decided to form a new band in their new hometown, after a couple of meetings with “musicians” they met Rassel, who introduced to them Veit, old fella of him and used to play together in bands such as “Muckefuck” and “Mutant Family”, so was formed the first Frontkick line-up: Veit at drums, Victor Bisonte at vocals, Marti Neurotic played guitar and Rassel did his job with the bass. Two months after their first rehearsal they recorded their debut demo-tape “Streetpunk Rebels”. It was rough and hard streetpunk with lyrics in Spanish and English, this was engineered by Hard H. from “Scattergun”, this demo was released on CD afterwards by Italian label. The demo brought ’em in contact with Bad Dog Recs. and startet to deal for their debut 7”, after a couple of weeks they recorded the “ Berlin Rejects” recorded in Wild At Heart Studios, it was going on the same way than the demo and containing also songs from this one, released in the year ’00 on vinyl by Bad Dog Records (Germany) and CD by Bronco Bullfrog Records (Spain), they did a bunch of gig’s in Berlin city and across Germany supporting bands such as: One way System, Angelic Upstarts, Leatherface, Menace and they took part of the first edition of the “Holidays In The Sun ‘00” in Berlin, becoming the first band in the story of this festival singing in Spanish-English and sharing stage with bands such as: Dropkick Murphy’s, Reazione, The Crack, The Casualties, Stiff Little Fingers and more dinosaurs of punkrock. Also they had a lot of fun by touring with friends such as Scattergun, Slamtilt!, etc….. After an Italian tour Rassel decided to quit and by the time their friends “Slamtil!” broke up, so…they didn’t have a bass player and Stephan was unemployed, he was the greatest Frontkick fan anyway, and decided to join them, which was a great success for the band, they did some gig’s with this line-up, supporting bands such as: The Forgotten or Sixer, and they were working on new songs for what should be their first long length, but then…. Victor Bisonte quit the band and went back to Mallorca, so the only way that they could go on was that Marti would carry on with the vocals, and so they did, surprisely the band got a brand new charm and finally recorded their debut album in summer ’02, the album was called “Guitars and Crime” and included 15 songs of fresh and wild punkrock. The album was released in Germany by Bad Dog Records on CD, by Nasty Vinyl on Vinyl, in Spain by Bronco Bullfrog Records and in Brazil by Rotten Records. The band toured Germany, Switzerland, and went to Mallorca for a festival, they supported: G.B.H., Angelic Upstarts, The Distillers, Discontent, Los Fastidios, Klasse Kriminale, Down and Away, and friends like Scattergun, Oxymoron or ZSK. At the end of ’02 they recorded a split 7” with “Voice Of A Generation”, a limited edition to 555 copies, recorded and mixed by former Slamtilt! Guitar player Kim Krüger and released by Bronco Bullfrog Records and Band Worm, also in December of that year Scattergun broke up; and as Frontkick was looking for a rythmic guitar player, they decided to pick Hardy up, and then the band toured with ONE MAN ARMY on their European tour. Frontkick have been playing in several Punk festivals and shows this year plus recorded their brand new album “Underground Stories” in Sonic Temple Studios from Mallorca may 04, this album will be released by Bronco Bullfrog Records on CD and has been licensed to Knockout Records for the vinyl edition. Frontkick have also recorded a videoclip for the song “36 Guns” and will appear in a good number of compilations from Rusia, USA, UK, Germany, Spain….
