and their first full-length album, Bananas hit the stores, these guys had already established themselves as the true kings of rock ‘n’ roll in the sonic wasteland that we now refer to as the late eighties. What Mötley Crüe did to the LA rock scene, The Paranoiacs did for Belgian rock. Except these guys didn’t have to dress like old tarts. The next decade brought more highs (Pukkelpop 1990 with Faith No More, Nick Cave and The Cramps - new albums, Thirteen and 7 Day Weekend).
Meanwhile, The Paranoiacs showed their evolution in the new millennium through the rare six track mini-album, Mini Countryhead: Paranoiacs Go Country, including their celebrated version of Johnny Cash’s (Ghost)Rider in the Sky that was also released in Japan. Love Junks is the band's lament for their unbridled love for women, but simultaneously for their respect and true devotion for their sonic masters who showed them the way throughout all those years in the rock 'n roll jungle. The band succeeds to blend these two totally different, yet at the same time, very similarly powerful driving forces into a spectacular new and last masterpiece. Think of one hell of a party with blonds, redheads and brunettes entangled with Cash, Ramones and Masters of Reality and you're not even close. Bring 50's blues ’n roll, 60’s garage rock, 70’s punk, 80's hard rock, 90's punk rock and zero bullshit into one room and the result is raw, wet and exhilarating. The Paranoiacs' love odyssey that started with We’re the Teenage Lovers will be sealed off with the appropriately titled Love Junks.
Raf & Hans have been suckers for love for the last 25 years and celebrate their silver wedding in style: with one last surge from their inner volcano of rock that will never be silenced. Twenty-five years of brotherly love (not Kane & Abel, Remi & Romulus, nor Liam & Noel managed to survive this long of a stretch together). The secret? The teenager in these guys just never died. http://paranoiacs.de http://www.facebook.com/pages/Paranoiacs/391147515715 http://myspace.com/paranoiacs666 Read more on Last.fm.
