Kraftwerk in Rock Hall of Fame!


If you consider Daft Punk to be the father of the American EDM boom, then it’s time to vote for Grandpa. German electronic music visionaries Kraftwerk have been nominated for entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the first electronic act to be up for such honors.

In addition to recording ten groundbreaking studio albums, Kraftwerk quite literally helped invent many of the innovations that the music we love takes for granted today. From the vocoder to the drum pad and beyond, Kraftwerk were analog pioneers that were light years ahead of their 1970s contemporaries. Cited as influences by multiple generations and genres of artists, ranging from the French robots to Depeche Mode, Björk, and every single techno DJ, with unimpeachable longevity (they played Ultra Music Festival and swiftly sold out eight nights at New York’s Museum of Modern Art earlier this year), it is no exaggeration to say electronic music would not be the same without them.

You can (and should) vote to support Kraftwerk’s nomination for entry here.

Bangs featured at Hot Damn!

Every so often we get the opportunity to do some really cool things at the club. This is one of those weeks. We’re flying Bangs in for a special one off exclusive midnight club appearance in Vegas. This is the night you’ve all been waiting for since about 2009!

Headlining the band room on the night are Sydney favourites CAULFIELD. We’ve had a heap of people asking for the Post-Hardcore rockers to play lately so we figured we’d give it to you in headline form so you can rock a longer set!

Supporting them on the night are:

Once the band room wraps up in Spectrum, Bangs will take the stage in Vegas. If you aren’t familiar with his works, you need to get with it. Check out the video below to familiar yourself with some of his work


Supporting Bangs are:
RG Wings
Sleepwalkers (Chrispy)

The Hot Damn! DJ’s will be playing nothing but the best Punk & Party jams all night until way late into Friday AM. Punk / Party in 34B, Party / Electro / Hip-Hop in QBar.

We’ll have a shit raffle on the night, which is exactly what you’d expect. We always hear kids saying “I never get the giveaways” or “why don’t I ever win anything”. Well, now that problem will be gone, and we’ll be buying an absolute shitload of cheap shit from just about anywhere and giving it away on the night. Don’t say we never do anything for you!

IWRESTLEDABEARONCE are touring and we have a double pass to the show at The Annandale on November 24th thanks to Taperjean.

ALL THAT REMAINS have a new one out titled ‘A War You Cannot Win’. Come party on the night and you could score a copy thanks to Shock!

DEFTONES have a new record out ‘KOI NO YOKAN’ and Warner Music have hooked us up once again with a stack of copies. Being the good dudes we are we will be giving them away on the night.

Doors are at 8pm.
Come Party at Sydney’s most notorious nightclub.
