Mars Attacks


Wild, authentic rockabilly is what you’ll get from the Swiss/Austrian formation called MARS ATTACKS. In February 1998, these musicians who have all been active in different rock´n´roll/rockabilly bands for years, came together.

Wild, authentic rockabilly is what you’ll get from the Swiss/Austrian formation called MARS ATTACKS. In February 1998, these musicians who have all been active in different rock´n´roll/rockabilly bands for years, came together. Mars has launched its attack and the invasion is hitting spots all over Switzerland, Austria and Germany as well as Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, Portugal and Spain. The Mars Attacks rockabilly invasion even made its way to England (twice at the Hemsby Rock´n´Roll Weekender & twice at The Rockabilly Rave - where they backed “Arkansas Wild Man” & SUN Records legend Sonny Burgess) and the USA (in April 2005 2 weeks tour of the mid west and east coast, incl.

the Rockin´50ies Fest II in Green Bay, WI…). Their debut album “...run for your life!“ (available on CD and 10“ LP + 7“ EP Vinyl) was released in July 1999. In order to achieve a sound that suited their style, all of the songs were recorded live on vintage equipment in a specialised studio in Montreux (JCR Recording Service www.bluelake.ch). Following this success, a further record was released in May 2000 (7“ Vinyl EP called “Snatch It & Grab It”). In November 2003 “DIRTY TRICKS” was successfully released on 12” Vinyl & CD, the latest release “CIRCLE OF LOVE” (also on CD & LP) saw the light of day in March 2006, at the 10th Rockabilly Rave, where they boys backed up Sonny Burgess again.

Lots of gigs followed this release on Blue Lake Records, incl. an US-west coast tour (incl. Rhythm´ Bound Festival in Los Angeles/Pomona in January 2007) and a tour from down south Texas up to Green Bay, WI, to the Rockin´ 50ies Fest III in May 2007. MARS ATTACKS is an energetic live band featuring a “classic” line-up that is sure to please: Roland Riedberger (lead vocals, trumpet, acoustic guitar,) from Switzerland, and the Austrians Oliver Pfanner (double bass, vocals), Martin Telfser (lead guitar) and David Karlinger (drums). The hot stage show and varied program – mostly made up of self-composed songs (including the meanwhile famous trumpet songs) and a well-chosen selection of rockabilly hits - transform each live performance into a special encounter – or should we say a special encounter of the third kind...
