The Barbecuties Bio:
After our first musical attempts (Ninja Sushi and The Wiggums) didn't work out too well, Wayne and I decided to start a pop punk band, playing all the Queers hits and so on. So we asked Han Solo, former lead-singer of the semi-popular skate-punk band Spyhole, to play the drums for us. That was around April 2001. We needed a name and we thought The Barbecuties, after a picture by - hell, who cares who painted it - was a good idea. After rehearsing a couple of times, we saw the potential in our new band and started to write some new songs and played some old Wiggums hits. But we realized that we needed a second guitar player, so we asked Old Nick to join us, and, immediately, he fell in love with our music. Wayne and Nick still played in another band called Push Button For Jets, but they split up after a while and we were able to concentrate on The Barbecuties, writing new songs, playing some shows and recording a CD, Planet Of The Babes, which was recorded in September 2002. Since then we've played shows with The Apers, Backwood Creatures, The Mansfields, The Manges, and the Sonic Dolls and we had a few songs on various compilations. Our second CD, Showdown d'Amour was released in 2005. Our third CD Promnight Heartbreak was released in 2007. Then in 2009 we recorded ...Scared The Shit Out Of Me at the Popakademie in Mannheim, which was completely crazy. It was released by Bubblegum Attack records, a very short-lived "free-download-internet-pop-punk-label". What the future will bring? Who the fuck knows!
