"THE TONY SLUG EXPERIENCE" ALBUM
RELEASE DATE: MARCH 22, 2024
This upcoming album is an homage to the legend of Amsterdam punk pioneer and rock 'n roller Tony Slug. Featuring over 30 players/writers, including Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Jennifer Finch (L7), Nicke Andersson (The Hellacopters), Jerry A. (Poison Idea), Happy Tom (Turbonegro), and many more!
“And this is what we know: Tony Slug is hands-down plain & simple the most bad-ass rock’n’roller to ever emerge from the European Continent” — Happy Tom (Turbonegro)
Tony Slug has been shaking the earth with his riff-driven punk rock since 1978. He has tirelessly toured with his bands BGK, Loveslug, The Nitwitz, and The Hydromatics.
Throughout his crusades, Tony has built a vast network of friends in every corner of DIY rock'n'roll. As a tribute to his legacy, this international group of friends has contributed to what would unfortunately become his final record; right after all recordings were on tape, Tony died at the age of 60 after a brief battle with cancer.
More than just an album, this release is a testament to years of enduring friendship, encapsulating the musical artistry and camaraderie that define THE TONY SLUG EXPERIENCE. Created with love and a shared history, it pays homage to the legacy of Tony Slug.
