Turbonegro To Re-Release Five Albums

Monday 5th November sees the re-release of five classic Turbonegro albums, namely Darkness Forever, Apocalypse Dudes , Ass Cobra , Never Is Forever and Hot Cars And Spent Contraceptives.

Each of the re-issues has been re-mastered and features the original artwork except for Hot Cars And Spent Contraceptives, and Never Is Forever, which have the artwork from their 1999 reissue versions.

Below, Happy Tom succinctly describes four of these Death Punk classics (Darkness Forever is a live album, recorded in Oslo and Hamburg in 1998) :

On Apocalypse Dudes:
Apocalypse Dudes, man. Fucken APOCALYPSE DUDES, man. That's all I can say.

On Ass Cobra:
Without doubt one of the meanest punk rock albums ever released, at least pegged so by Steve Albini, this dude with glasses. Post-teen nihilism at it's scariest, but in a sexy way. Our first denim record, and how!

On Never Is Forever:
We recorded this basically as a big FUCK YOU to the lo-fi aesthetics that ruled the planet in 1993/94. We tried to make a 2.000 dollar record sound like a million bucks, and succeeded, as always. Through the haze of beer bottle-doubling-as-ashtray fumes and amyl nitrate it comes your way on a unicorn, beautifully.

On Hot Cars And Spent Contraceptives:
Sounds like Slayer performed by a bunch of very irritable and not very talented hash smokers. Which was what it was, basically. A climaxing fountain on the town square of the world's most negative city.

Turbonegro will be hitting the road as special guests for Marilyn Manson in December on their UK Arena Tour.
