DEMENTED ARE GO!(UK, psychobilly)
28 years on stage, more than 15 albums, an infinite number of gigs all over the world... And now the greatest Rock’n’Roll monsters of our time are finally coming to Kiev! They've been announced to headline the 6th Bang in 2010, but suddenly broke up just before the festival... Now they are back up, going from strength to strength and working on a new album. So this time Demented are ready to hit the stage of the Ukrabilly Bang #8 and perform their ass-kicking show!
The Swampy's(Belgium, psychobilly)
The Swampy's are probably the most famous Belgians (after Manneken Pis and Tintin) and one of the brightest representatives of oldschool psychobilly . These guys have broken into the psycho scene at the end of the 80’s, released the powerful album and jumped in to the last part of the legendary compilation "Psycho Attack Over Europe". In the early 90's the band has toured a lot, but one day they suddenly broke up... And the same way they suddenly re-united after 20 years of silence, recorded a demo and played a couple of big festivals. The time has come for Kiev to see this great band!
WiseGuyz(Ukraine, authentic rockabilly)
WiseGuyz are the best Ukrainian rockabilly band. During their 12-years history guys won the hearts of many of Rock’n’Roll fans all over Ukraine and abroad, released 4 albums, filmed an outstanding video clip, toured across Spain, Poland and Germany, were signed by the big label El Toro... and this is just a small part not all the achievements of this wonderful band! Don't miss them live - this is always a great fun!
Mosquito ara one of the coolest Russian psychobilly bands. They were formed in 1994 and they completely devoted themselves to the psycho-music: they wanted to "play faster than Meantraitors", "scare Mad Sin" and "outwit Krewmen". They've managed to do most of these things! At the end of the 90's the album "Mosquito Wants Your Blood" has been released and at the beginning of 2000's the band has called it a day. Now Mosquito reunited again to please their fans with old classics and some bloody fresh songs!
Spoilers(Russia, surf & billy)
Spolers are Yekatrinburg-based legends, founded as psychobilly outfit they gradually moved on to surf. They played more than 500 concerts all over Russia, their compositions were represented on many compilation albums in different countries.
Director Azovskogo Morya(Ukraine, rock&roll, rockabilly, jump-blues)
Band Director Azovskogo Morya is from small but glorious town of Krasnodon. Plays rock'n'roll since from year 2009. Pure east-southern rockabilly. Bordering jump-blues. Intelligent boogie. In hard conditions, in the atmosphere of complete ignorance the guys proudly and honestly carry their Rockabilly flag. Debut album has been recorded.
Lucky Bar(Ukraine, rockabilly)
Lucky Bar is a new name on the Kiev rockabilly scene. The band appeared at the end of 2010 and started active gigging in the capital and other cities. Initially playing mostly cover-versions on Rock'n'Roll and Rockabilly classic hits, guys are gradually adding more of their own material. Their progress is very impressive!

The band was formed by Mark Harman in 1978 and from those days has issued more than 20 albums and toured across the whole globe. Their success was very fast – the very first album became bronze (more than 25000 copies were sold) and further the band only increased the pace. Nowadays Restless are playing not so many concerts and we have the unique opportunity to see living legends of Rockabilly for the first time in ex-USSR!
Pitmen(Germany, melodic psychobilly)
Pitmen are well known masters of melodic psychobilly. The band has started its career in 1995 and after only a year has presented its first single "Misfits.

On the edge of the centuries Pitmen toured extensively and appeared on many biggest 'billy festivals. In 2001 the last studio album has seen the light – 4-songs EP and in 2003 Pitmen has played their "last show". But after 5 years to the delight of numerous fans the band renewed their concert activity and now will visit Kiev for the first time ever!

At the end of 2010 they released their debut full-length album on Crazy Love Records.
Hot Dozzer(Ukraine, rockabilly)
Hot Dozzer is young rockabilly band from Zaporizhzhya. Guys have started with a great pace and at the moment they are touring a lot all over Ukraine. Recently they issued their debut album full dirty rockabilly sound, no sign of sweat sugar melodies at all. The album is recomended for all fans of authentic and wild rockabilly sound.
Strait Jacket(Ukraine, psychobilly)
Strait Jacket are psychobilly-trio from glorious city of Odessa. Guys play hard psycho in the best traditions of Brazilian school. However it doesn't sound like "metal or punk with doublebass", but rather like very individual view on rock'n'roll. Great material and arrangements along with high level of performance are unarguable strengths of the band.
