BIKES s/t LP (III)


new album out on 4/6/19 by Berlins stallions of jamming at the gas station! With a blowout facing no service the next two days.

Totally stripped down, early 70´s rock in the ridiculously enough tiny parking lot between NATURAL CHILD and ROLLING STONES. In a matter of course, it´s the perfect album to live the moment of now. How much mototard smoke can you take at the station? Ten songs, all dry as the atacama desert, no fuzz, no thrills, no cocktail umbrellas and of course no buttons at the jacket. You just want to get time-trapped in this perpetual motion BIKES groove. Since years the berliners say the BIKES are a nuke. Forbidden to take off, stone cold outside. Everyone is partying hard their secret hidden powers and their proximity of short-lived stardom and armageddon. So, this s/t album # III and third release on ALIEN SNATCH! REC. Recorded analog on four track tape by Nene Barrato, first press on 180g black vinyl, limited bunch of copies on matt grey vinyl. How many BIKES albums fit in a nuke shell?

BIKES s/t LP (II)


Imagine a party on Doctor Moreau's island where the dance band is made up of four giant chain- wielding, beer guzzling, leather-clad parrots... suddenly, out of nowhere, Keith Richards shows up high on his father's ashes and joins them for an encore.

After hard touring around the globe, Berlin thug-rockers BIKES finally found the time to lock themselves into their East-Berlin rehearsal space and record their next album, tactically avoiding the sophomore slump. We're more than honoured to bring you their new, and yet their best effort! It's chock full of hits, equally influenced by both kinds: Rock AND Roll, guaranteed to move your bones! Songs about bars, being locked up behind bars, motorcycles – things you can relate to! Steady, no-bullshit caveman drumming! Vicious bass! Thuggish guitars with some wild monstro/mongo Chuck Berry riffs thrown in! That's right! No wimpy shit here! The return of pub-rock? Maybe? I hear they drink beer for breakfast! Record comes housed in great John Pasche inspired artwork handmade by the band!

BIKES Two Mice / P.P.O.D 45


The Berlin street zoo of garage birds has two main attractions being worth your nuts: It´s the two funky peacocks (you may heard of) named KING KHAN & BBQ (on loan from the Montreal Zoo a decade ago) and four leather parrots named the BIKES, on lifetime loan of the employment office.

You can go to any show and whatever mood your are - you get stroke by the spark to move your bones to the over-the-top groovy, doo-wop soaked harmonies put on top on a non-"psychedelic", primo-garage thud! The band has been kickin' around since the summer of nothin' and features ex, ex- ex-, and current personnel of DIE ERSTEN MENSCHEN, CCCANDY, HELLSHOVEL, DEMONS CLAWS, MODERN PETS. They've been drinkin outta the same r'n'r puddle as the NERVOUS EATERS, CHUCK BERRY and the STONES! This is their second 45 after a LP on BACHELOR and a 45 on GOODBYE BOOZY, both sold out. The 7" is sleeved in their already überfamous art and is strictly limited to 500 copies, 100 of them in powdery white vinyl. New LP out this year on ALIEN SNATCH! Meanwhile, BIKES recommend to spin this 45 and enjoy the simple things in life (e.g. eating peanuts, waking up drunk, complain about dog shit in Berlin). Keep you eyes peeled, kids!
