Pink Steel


There are at least two bands with this name 1) a canadian punk/powerpop band that released a couple of EPs in the early 80s 2) a novelty band: The hardest music recorded since Jonny McGovern's "Soccer Practice." From the PINK STEEL Website (www.pinksteel.com): "Hanson Jobb and Udo Von DuYu are two of the city's funniest fellas devoted to 'fighting with metal and loving with wood.'" --Daphne Carr, VILLAGE VOICE BEST OF 2003 "Oh, yes." --BLENDER Magazine Read more on Last.fm

From the PINK STEEL Website (www.pinksteel.com): "Hanson Jobb and Udo Von DuYu are two of the city's funniest fellas devoted to 'fighting with metal and loving with wood.'" --Daphne Carr, VILLAGE VOICE BEST OF 2003 "Oh, yes." --BLENDER Magazine PINK STËËL IN 30 SECONDS: PINK STËËL make heavy metal gay, and gay heavy metal funny as hell--blurring the lines between music, comedy, Motley Crüe and Mary Poppins to create a fabulous, fist-pumping arena rock concert experience that will leave you singing tunes like "We Fight For Cock" "I'm Comin' Out (All Over You)" and "Sausage Party" for days--whether you want to or not. Their crossover comedy-rock cabaret co-mingles gay culture and heavy metal bluster with punch-line songwriting--giving every audience front row seats to a stadium-style rock show unlike any other. "Outlandish performanance and inspired bitchiness." --TIME OUT NEW YORK " The gays from hell." --NEXT Magazine THE HISTORY: Born in Bremen, Germany, Hanson Jobb and Udo Von DüYü have made good on their sacred pledge to "conquer the world, one bath house at a time." But PINK STËËL's rightful place in the great book of Gay Heavy Metal has been 20 years in the making. "The two have made gay heavy metal history." --INSTINCT Magazine The flashpoint of this journey was September 1983, when founding members Udo Von DüYü (guitar, vocals) and Hanson Jobb (vocals) encountered each other in a smoky Rotterdam bathhouse/nightclub. Hanson had just finished "chatting" in the back room with several Nigerian wrestlers. A forlorn Udo was smothering his sorrows at the bar after his lover had left him for a cantaloupe with a hole cut in it. The two natives of Bremen, Germany immediately recognized each other from high school swim team.

And the rest--as documented in the power ballad "Two Men Enter, One Man Loves"--is Gay Heavy Metal history. PINK STËËL have spread the gospel of Gay Heavy Metal ever since, covering the eastern U.S., northern Europe, and parts of Estonia. With the seminal albums Mouth Full of Magic, Creaming for Vengeance, and the upcoming Out at the Devil, PINK STËËL have duly carved their names into men's room walls and into hard rock legend. "Their hysterical and catchy songs meld Ozzy Ozbourne with Oscar Wilde. " --HX Magazine UND WHAT'S THIS ABOUT A DRUMMER? Still reading? Good. Hanson and Udo met drummer Helmut Bang at the 1999 Atomare Schreie von den Homosexuellen art exhibition in Mannheim.

Bang, a part-time Audi mechanic and successful ice sculptor, impressed the duo with his four-meter phallus. Sure enough, the three got to talking--or rather, "talking." And the rest--as documented in Helmut's out-of-print chapbook Schlagen Meine Häute ("Banging My Skins")--is bad, indulgent German poetry. And history. "They will have your sides aching from laughing all night." --BUST Magazine PINK STËËL: Gay Heavy Metal at its Hardest! YET MORE PRAISE FOR THE PINK & BLACK BAREBACK ATTACK: "German accents, feather boas and a lot of bitchy gay banter." --INSTINCT Magazine "You guys rage like boners." --PLAYGIRL Magazine "The logical next step." --TIME OUT NEW YORK "Raucously Sexy." --Rachel Kramer Bussell, VILLAGE VOICE "Very funny and very nuts!" --Ron Poole, host, "Poole Party" Read more on Last.fm.
