"Playtime" has tons of attitude, adrenaline and pop sensibility, sitting on the end-of-the-70´s borderline between punk and pop that we love to death here! Imagine if ELVIS COSTELLO had only an hour of studio time to boil up an album and he wants the middle seat between SWELL MAPS "New York" and NICK LOWE "Heart of the City"more here.
06/06/17 Added reviews of the new releases, had fun shows in Berlin with the COCKTAILS, SUSHICORNER and LAME.
28/04/17 COCKTAILS - Hypochonadriac LP ist out now! San Francisco’s devout pop purveyors – are back with a new batch of expertly crafted buzz-pop songs! There are 100 copies (out of 500) in lemonade red colored clear vinyl, you can either buy in our mailorder section or directly thu paypal here. Melodically, in addition to some of the band’s late 70s punk and power pop heroes (Nick Lowe, Cheap Trick, The Nerves) Cocktails bring inspiration from the catchier side of 90s guitar bands - think Teenage Fanclub! Hypochondriac is a quick gut-punch of a record - it draws you in with brief moments of sweet and fuzzy feelings, and then drops a chorus that will keep your head spinning for days.
06/05/17 SUSHICORNER Konichiwow debut LP ist out now! It´s a great record from Singer/Guiarits if LOVE BOAT, THEE OOPS and member of the RIPPERS as well as UNDISCO KID! Read more here.

MARVIN GAYS LIVE
HEX DISPENERS LIVE
06/06/15 OUT NOW! THE HEX DISPENSERS "III" LP/CD!! The HEX DISPENSER return with a new album packed with their hypnotic darkness rock! Their previous releases got terrific feedback, they´re largely considered as the iconic band of angst ridden, raw haunted garage punk. The shadow-y tension-filled voice of Alex Cuervo is absolutely remarkable and makes any of their song an easy go at yer music jeopardy. The HEX DISPENSERS give you the creeps with killer down-toned guitars and paranormal pop hooks as if RAMONES would have only played bat caves, the SPITS got stuck in black java and DEVO felt the cold touch of the MISFITS. They took all their latest singles hits and brand new songs into the Cool Devices Studio of Mark Ryan / Jeff Burke (MARKED MEN, RADIOACTIVITY) to record album "III". You get the most rocking HEX DISPENSERS album to date, a bass driven catacomb exploration with some winks of Alex' solo works and a doom-ish, sinister synth track "Hypersleep" - sung by Alyse and Rebecca. Brilliant artwork and inner sleeve by the band itself. Mastered by Mikey Young (EDDY CURRENT SUPPRESSION RING). Worldwide exclusive release by ALIEN SNATCH! stream of the album here and there is a great NOISEY write-up and here a awesome CVLT Nation Interview!

our own information highway. Check

SNATCH!071 is the long awaited BRAIN TRAPS debut album of the new german LOFI gang, check the BRAIN TRAPS page here.

SNATCH!073 yeah, new kind of super star band from Turino, Italy LAME it´s kind of MOVIE STAR JUNKIES going to a pop hike in the country side. Debut album out now, with great atwork my Tim Kerr and Mastering by Tim Warren! check the LAME page here
27/02/15 Be aware of the BIKES tour starting in few days! E Bene!
TRAPS & KÜKEN
02/02/15 SNATCH!070 there is no better way to start the year then unleashing this killer 45!! HITS,baby HITS! BRAIN TRAPS are from cologne, Germany and we think this debut Single will be on any top ten for fans of LOFI Rocknroll and razorsharp punk scatter bombs! Limited 500 copies! Debut Album out soon also in ALIEN SNATCH! and upcoming tour with KÜKEN. "The TEEN TRASH series is back! LO-FI or bust! Teenage angst driven garage PUNK! Four early recordings from 2013 - a spawn of boredom and basement dirt which could be best described as a hornier INFECTIONS, or high on glue METROS, a smarter BUCK BILOXI & FUCKS or a dumber version of the CARBONAS! These scatter bombs were captured live on 4-track and stayed unedited until RIP OFF RECORDS mastering miracle JIM KUCZKOWSKI put his magic hands on it. As "too-hot-to-press" it was aging in our attic until now and here they finally come! The wildest LO-FI R'N'R thing out of the motherland since DEAN DIRG! Strictly limited to 500 copies. 400 copies black wax and 100 copies clear orange wax (mailorder only or from the band!)."
27/01/15 Great new reviews for IMPO & THE TENTS and TESTORS and THEE MARVIN GAYS!!

23/11/14 Great new reviews for ZHOD, IMPO & THE TENTS and TESTORS from RAZORCAKE Magazine! IMPO & THE TENTS finished their Tour and it was one of the best shows in 2014 and definately in my all-time-live power pop list!
18/11/14 SNATCH!069 Second album by this 4-piece (3 dudes and a lady) from beer 'n waffle land. Yep, that's Belgium! Twelve gritty, hook-laden tunes about confusion, nightmares aaand good things! Evil pounding drums! Stinging treble-y guitars! Growling bass! Real music, y'know! Ranging from cool jangle rockers to manic guitar freakouts they manage to master the Nuggets/Pebbles formula in a modern way without sounding like another dull copy. Throw in some fire of love-era GUN CLUB for good measure and dump the surf powerpop BARRACUDAS into the belgian sea and there ya go! Imagine the STANDELLS setting the MUNSTERS show on fire! But ya know, they're not into recreating an old era or following current trends, they're rather interested in creating original music! No silly garage rock uniforms! No STANDELLS wigs! No drone-y faux psych! No moronic joint chompin' tie-dye "take-it-easy-brooo" flower-rock BS! After awesome previous releases SLEEPLESS NIGHTS is a upbeat and catchy garage pop sensation as we love it at ALIEN SNATCH! The twelve originals sound just right, we could have never mixed the album any better than this. Stunning artwork (check!), crazy band name (check!), perfect catalog number (check!), limited coloured vinyl (check!).
15/11/14 more Tour Dates added for ZHOD check them out here

22/10/14 IMPO & THE TENTS Germany tour is ready to go!
& THE TENTS
rock and roll candyland has opened it's doors again! The IMPO
& THE TENTS is the top attraction, a rollercoaster ride with 12 firecrackin
soda cans while everyone is seated in spinning bananas! The top show are four
not-formerly-known-sons of the OHIO EXPRESS, rumors say they toured Sweden in
hope to free villages full of of blonde girls hold by the ABBA sect. Expect
60´s bubblegum blood splattered tracks, instant remarkable punk singing
as DICKIES and UNDERTONES on the speed parts and thrift store rock and sticky
power pop with the SHIVVERS, REAL KIDS, RASPBERRIES on the tapedeck telling
stories about first turn-ons, sneaky looks and yesterday's girls on the two
minutes rides. The wagons are equipped with endorphine popgun shots of early
YUMS YUMS or RED KROSS, totally electrified & buzzing as the Atlantas' BARRERACUDAS
and square & weird as LOVE BOAT islanders will splash at the last curve.
Adrenaline filled, addicting flatterin´voice & the hooks to massage
any moustache wins definately the sing-sing-songwriting-contest of they year.
// nonsense? genius album title, the no.1 douche band name
and the two
weeks photoshooting to come around with the most hairy NERVES 45 sleeve ripoff ever //dance? the sideway helicopter! moronic smiles and spit blueberry sirup thru tooth gaps, white-blue chinese kung-fu shoes kicking rolls of toilet paper //toughness? recorded by Stefan Brandström of HENRY FIATS OPEN SORE, mastered by Dave Rahn of the CARBONAS //dog and pony show? on tour in Europe in November 2014 - get in touch with Bazooka Ben. Free weed icecream and kim-chi cream cheese!
30/06/14 SNATCH!067 - the garage kraut sultans ZHOD slam their debut album onto our planet! ZHOD finally have their debut album out! Would you rather? is packed with instro-garage weirdness and freight train surge! tied deep in the garage, the love to shift your grooves with noncyclical waving instro sound-convoys back to a furious attacks of hypnotic, guitar punches and catchy choruses and freight train bass lines. Imagine ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT get pulled in the gutter by MAN OR ASTROMAN. KING TUFF commanding a cobainy submarine and the OH SEES' are detailed doin' service in the engine room. In a nutshell, just put TY SEGALL downhill on a bike with no brakes. How come? Hiding in deserted Berlin backyards ducktaping broken windows and enriching their art progress with pharmacy bags of medical weed and cheap liquors, they onboarded reel-to-reel recording mastermind Nene Baratto (MOVIE STAR JUNKIES, Outside Inside Studios) to finally knock it out! It´s ten songs of fuzz-soaked, dreamy garage rock of this never-resting german four piece. They just put the cream on their european tour for the flippin´ festival summer and heading back to any basement weirdness or BYOB party right after to the Liverpool Psychfest! doing laundry is yesterday, stay dirty with ZHOD! They already got some reviews and a brand new interview at Foggy Girls Club french and english --> ZHOD

18/03/13 What a great SXSW-write up about the GOLDEN BOYS: Even after the disaster that was “Shortcut to Memphis”, The Golden Boys are still a stunning example of rock’n'roll from the heart. Separate The GOLDEN BOYS and you get 5 destructive tornadoes of law defying drunkenness and self loathing (especially Schmitz) bring them together, and they form a sub-par action squad of stumble-drunk sweethearts who even at their worst…are the best band in the world. We really, really hate them for that. Formed in 2000 in between Bryan Schmitz’s (bass) Matt Hoopengarder’s (guitar, vocals) and John Wesley Coleman’s (guitar, vocals) stints in jail and on drugs, the boys have formed something tangible through 5 LP’s worth of material. Through the addition of drum beater Pat Travis and total asshole Nay Nay Arbietman (keyboards) the band has cultivated a truly Texan sound. Their songs are Texan in their drunken reverie and Texan in their tender heartache. Despite Pat being the 2nd drummer, Nay Nay being kicked out 3 times, and Matt breaking up the band about a dozen times, they’ve managed to pull it together for a couple of disastrous, yet well received U.S tours. They even got a European tour under their sweaty belts. Well done, Boys. All in all, The GOLDEN BOYS are a fun group of grouchy sweethearts that will come to your house, charm your girl, drink all your booze, then dip out of there. Yeah, they’re fun to drink with. Spot Long and JJ Ruiz – Trailer Space, Austin, TX

21/01/12 We have news to tell! By end of March we have a new record to release!! SNATCH!057 - The GOLDEN BOYS new album entitled "Dirty Fingernails" will be a blast of their great songwriting and their soulish garage folk. Mike Vasquez from SWEATBOX Studio catched a lot of their live experience on tape. We get a special mix for that release. Rough and loud. We´re psyched! Isn´t that a reason to to fly to SXSW just to see them hopefully five times singing their new hits like "We´re Young", "Party Jesus" or "Older than you". !!? We´re there. Hopefully soon in Europe again.

18/01/12 Hi folks! Yes, w´re still alive and running. Is record business a fly-ny-night collaboration? We doubt that. So take it easy when there isn´t a release every month. We´re looking for outstanding recordings, and they´re rare and there will be more catches by 2012. But December brought a nice stream of fgood bands in Berlin. We had the DWARVES, TOTAL CONTROL, TERRIBLE FEELINGS, BARE WIRES, MARK SULTAN, DIÄT! Fun times.

30/12/10 this went via email but here again: Dear bookers & friends,thanks again for having the GOLDEN BOYS! You made it happen!! They made it thru the whole tour, they played all shows which is nearly unbelievable with all the snow. Tons of other bands cancelled all over the place. The played killer shows, double sets, exceed our high expectations and many of you got back with overwhelming feedback. Here and there more people been expected but with icy streets it was quite a hassle for everyone to travel around. It worked out in the end and the band want to thank each of you for all the efforts. The GOLDEN BOYS want to come back maybe late autumn 2011, which would be fantastic. We´ll see what time will bring. So we have upcoming tours in 2011 of WHEELS ON FIRE and GOLDEN BOYS on the US-Side and we sure see tours of the MOJOMATICS; VERMILLION SANDS and KIDNAPPERS.
