11. mai får vi besøk av noen vaskeekte legender. Siden de debuterte på CBGBs i 1976 har The Fleshtones knapt hatt en fridag. I tillegg til en lang rekke klassiske album og en sinnssyk mengde konserter har The Fleshtones vært gjenstand for en av tidenes beste rockebiografier («Sweat» av Joe Bonomo) og en strålende dokumentarfilm («Pardon Us for Living But the Graveyard Is Full», 2009), og har velfortjent rykte på seg for både å være tidenes mest hardtarbeidende band og et av verdens beste liveband.
The creators and key advocates of their own genre -- super rock -- the Fleshtones have been one of America's greatest rock & roll showbands in a career that began in 1976. While they were often lumped in with the garage rock revival movement, their formula was significantly more complex than their peers. Though '60s garage sounds were a major influence, so were rhythm & blues, soul, hard rock, psychedelic rock, and even disco (the group cited the excitement of a packed dance club as an inspiration for their over-the-top live shows). The band plays rock & roll suitable for energetic parties and frenetic dancing.
