Berserkerz, The

fotograaf onbekend

If it would have been possible to get Dead Boys, Marc Bolan and Ike Turner together in one recording studio, then the result might have sounded the way The Berserkerz sound nowadays. Swinging and footstamping rock 'n roll and soul, to which singer and guitarist Paul Phoenix adds his teardroppin' voice in a way that would make Linda Ronstadt cry! Paul and drummer Rocketdog met six years ago when Paul was being attacked by real scumbacks, just around the corner of the pub in Arnhem where he lived. Rocketdog wanted to help him, but the majority of hooligans was so enormous that Paul decided to pull his gun.

At that very moment the police arrived and thought that the victims were the vandals, and so our heroes ended up in jail. And that's where they met a guy called Mark, who sometimes used his fast fingers to play the bass. The Berserkerz broke out immediately and started to rehearse. Anno 2003 the trio has become a quartet, after some people had to be kicked out and two well-known rockers from Amsterdam had been invited to join the group. Oekel Knoekel (guitar) and Olå Carbona (bass) became infamous a few years ago, when they stole a bob from an Swiss team and almost managed to qualify for the Olympics in Calgary with this vehicle. In this line-up The Berserkerz recorded their second album last summer in the Rocketdog Studio. It's entitled River Deep, Action High (the studio is situated under the dike of the river Rhine, and that's were Paul had a successful night with the girl of his dreams!) and has been released early.

Goh, heb ik vier of meer jaar bij deze band gebast en de eerste elpee en een beetje de tweede vol gespeeld, word ik nog geeneens meer genoemd. Getuigt van waardeloze mentaliteit bij de rest van de leden van de `band`.
