Repomen might seem to crash into the scene from outta nowhere, but collectively these music buffs have decades of experience to build on. After the demise of Borehole three of its members – including the hardest hitting lady from the Lowlands – started jamming for fun. Joining them on bass and lead vocals was Peter, singer/guitar player of Holland’s premier rock’ roll band Peter Pan Speedrock. Before they knew it the riffs started to roll and songs were born. This was all too good to keep for themselves, so Repomen played their first major show in hometown Eindhoven, supporting the illustrious Hermano in front of 1300 unsuspecting, yet electrified rock aficionados.
After that sublime night the buzz got going. The promoter of the world-renowned Roadburn festival didn’t think twice before booking Repomen, and Dutch rock label Suburban Records, also home to The Hydromatics and Hermano, signed the band. So here it is: Roadkill (2008), the first Repomen chapter, shining unpolished in sonic glory. Eight massive groove monsters lay down the law like early Motörhead playing blues for the red sun. Roadkill rocks like there’s no tomorrow, boasting an authentic thunderous sound which will give every modern day Pro Tools prick a run for his money.
