After the successful European tour the band was full of vitality and creative energy to capture the vibe and the power of their hard hitting rock ’n’ roll in their new record. With this 10 new songs they also wanted to show the world their musical diversity and dug way deep down to their roots of 1970’s R’n’R / Glam/Punk rock movement . Started the recordings in 2007 November with the leading of Blondie as a producer the band has reached the goal.

You can find a wide spectrum of musical moods on this record. Sing-a-long catchy tunes like the Ramones inspired Backseat love and Banana Bar or really dark, psychedelic journeys through songs like Medicine man or Handful of hate gives a complete picture. Also they show their respect to their Punk Rock/New wave heroes with a great version of Lord Of The New Church classic Russian Roulette In 2008 November the band had the chance to open to one of their biggest favorite the Backyard Babies in Budapest, and also they gained plenty of new fans with their rocking live performance. In late 2009 the band went through some personal changes. Brownstone and the guys said goodbye to each other and 2 new members joined the band.

Zoli Marton on bass and Andras Greff on guitar. With this line-up the band’s stronger than ever, in the rest of 2009 they already scheduled several live performances in the Hungarian scene, and they also start to prepare to the recordings of the new joystix album which planned release date is 2010 april-may.
