“Perennial garage rockers” (SPIN), The Fleshtones—Keith Streng, Peter Zaremba, Bill Milhizer, and Ken Fox—will celebrate their 40th anniversary with the release of their 21st album, The Band Drinks For Free. Out September 2 on Yep Roc Records, the album is now available for pre-order with an instant download of “Love Like A Man.”
Recorded at Florent Barbier’s CCP Sound Studio in Brooklyn, New York, The Band Drinks For Free features 12 songs that take stock in the band’s remarkable career, and is a testament to surviving with a great attitude at great odds.
Dubbed “America’s Garage Rock Band” and “The Kings Of Garage Rock,” The Fleshtones debuted at CBGB in May 1976, and were the first band to play at Irving Plaza and Danceteria in Manhattan, Maxwell’s in Hoboken, New Jersey, and the first to be booked at the original 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C.
Well into their fifth decade of making believers out of the most jaded naysayers with their mongrel stew known as “Super Rock,” The Fleshtones have been the subject of books (Sweat by Joe Bonomo, Continuum Press 2007) and movies (Pardon Us For Living But The Graveyard’s Full, 2009) as well as amazement from fans and detractors alike.

At the time of this demo session (1990) we didn't have any words for it so Slim Harpo's "Tee Ni Nee Ni Noo" was used for scratch vocals....

Preorder the new EP HERE
Finally a North American release for "Solna"! Career Records http://www.careerrecords.com/ will release a special "Loaded Deluxe Edition" LP on September 1 with the added bonus of a download card featuring all of the songs from the "Solna" sessions plus the four tracks from the new EP. Here's what label boss Ron Sanchez has to say about it:
I first heard the Nomads when my wife Karen ordered a copy of the Swedish comp Real Cool Time and the famous bootleg Stagger In The Snow. I was fully impressed. Not too much later I formed the first Donovan�s Brain line up. In reaction to the �anyone can start a band� philosophy of the mid 80�s I figured a band playing the songs my bands had played in the 60�s would be a good idea. The other half of our set was taken from the Nomads catalog. It seemed to work.
A few years later we finally had the chance to see and meet the Nomads at Garage Shock. We found much common ground and developed a deep friendship. In 1999, the Nomads booked some free days on a tour to stop in Montana. Between drinking and grilling steaks we recorded the original version of Top Alcohol, a track for a Donovan�s Brain album and the still unreleased collaboration, No Cops, Haul Ass.
Career Records is not a full time operation. When Deniz Tek and I have records to release we turn the lights back on. In March of 2013 we opened the shop to release the new Deniz Tek and Donovan�s Brain albums. A few days later a message came through from Nix Nomad asking if we�d like to do an American release of the fab Solna album. My wish for some new songs was easily accommodated, as the band would be recording some track for a Swedish Record Store Day ep. The Career Records release of Solna � Loaded Deluxe will distill the best of these two records. A 12 track vinyl release and 16 track CD will please all Nomads fans, and mark the start of what could be a very interesting future for all parties involved.
New EP - "Loaded Deluxe" - out April 20. Read More>> (In Swedish)
The Nomads and Staffan Hellstrand together with Stockholm Strings:
Time to summarize 2012! Many thanks to everybody who bought/downloaded/streamed "Solna", our first new album in eleven years. Extra Special Thanks to Universal Music Scandinavia and Devils Jukebox Records for getting it out there, it's been a pleasure working with you guys.
Mega thanks also to everybody that came out to any of the 17 shows we've played after the release in april, we haven't done that many in one year since 2003! In 2013 we hope to be able to play some places we haven't been before, Japan, for example, is on the wish list.
All the best from The Nomads - Happy New Year!
