In a world ruled by fabricated pop-music, reality TV talent, and flavor-of-the-minute hipster bands, it’s rare to find an act that exudes the essence ofwhile maintaining integrity and originality in thought. But, every so often a band comes along that pushes boundaries and defies the monotonous mainstream standard. One such band that is currently electrifying the UK’s underground punk scene with their brash brand of unique sci-fi infused rock is Turbogeist.
Inspired by ’70s era punk rock, ’80s hardcore, comic books, and the end of the world while taking cues from The Replacements, The Damned and The Misfits, Turbogeist have set out to carve their own path melding their influences into an amalgam of twisted sci-fi laden punk rock that explodes with raw aggression and attitude on tracks like their first single “Mermaid’s Revenge.”
Turbogeist will celebrate the release of Ancient Secrets at SXSW with three performances this week.
