In existence for almost 15 years now, The Peacocks are Switzerland?s finest and most popular punkabilly export. Crunchy, adrenaline-fueled guitar work paired with well rounded upright bass slapping and an undeniable knack for songwriting gives The Peacocks a genuine edge in the wide world of punk and psychobilly. Sprinkle some ska and pop in the mix and you?ll realize why The Peacocks caught the interest of Asian Man Records, who have been releasing Peacocks albums in the U.S. for the last 10 years. With thousands of albums sold over the years, The Peacocks have played with the likes of Bad Religion, No Means No, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Snuff, Dwarves, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Slackers, NoFX, Rancid.. With over 400 shows in the last three years, The Peacocks have toured Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Holland, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Slovenia, UK, Hungary, Czech Republic, Canada, and the USA. Catch The Peacocks back in the USA touring throughout May 2006 in support of their new CD collection on HairBall8 Records, titled Greatest Hits and Misses, a collection of the band?s best songs plus three previously unreleased tracks. This CD is a goldmine for true Peacocks fans and should also please any fan of The Clash, Stray Cats, Green Day and The Living End.
