Peter Pan SpeedrockFor the first time in a decade, the Netherlands prevalent group of balls out/motherfuckering rock n’ roll Peter Pan Speedrock will service their North American fan base in late Spring with their latest offering entitled Buckle Up And Shove It! to be released on CD and limited vinyl through Self Destructo Records.

Peter Pan Speedrock is hands down the hardest working band to come from the Dutch rock n’ roll scene.  That can be said with absolute confidence on our end.  The band derived their name from a condition called “Peter Pan Syndrome” (a popular psychological term regarding male social immaturity) and have a career together spanning nearly twenty years which includes 1800+  shows, eleven full lengths, a handful of E.P’s and split releases with appearances by fellow neck breakers Zeke, V8 Wankers, Batmobile, Gluecifer and Danko Jones.  They’ve done transcontinental tours (Europe, Russia, Australia and USA), played to massive audiences at some of the largest festivals in the world (Pinkpop, SXSW, With Full Force, Dynamo Open Air) and organize/curate their own festival called Speedfest, which happens annually in their hometown of Eindhoven “Rock City” and draws 5,000 + from around the globe to the festival grounds.  They’ve done tours with Turbonegro, Zeke, Honky (to name a few) across Europe, toured the US with Nashville Pussy and have opened up for Motörhead and Anthrax during tour stops in the Benelux.  At Speedfest, they’ve shared the stage with some of the biggest names in underground hard rock (i.e. Monster Magnet,  Suicidal Tendencies, The Fuzztones, Red Fang, The Reverend Horton Heat, ..And You Will Know Us By Trail Of The Dead, Doomriders, Napalm Death and TONS of others.)

Buckle Up And Shove It! consists of thirteen blistering tracks that blur the lines for anyone attempting to categorize them as a punk or metal band. Just a pure sonic assault on the ears. For 37 minutes, these cats exhibit their love for Motorhead-like heaviness, AC/DC like riff structures, the speed and ferocity of Zeke and conjure the swagger of The Damned. Recommended tracks like “Murdertruck” and “Get You High” bring out exactly what any hard rock fan wants: Illegal activity praise, POUNDING drums and down strokes on the strings on a Les Paul and Fender Jazzmaster through Eindhoven amplifiers (these dudes support as much local Nethelands business as possible). The album will be released on CD and highly limited vinyl in a first run flaming translucent beauty for North America. Buckle Up And Shove It! will be made available through Shop Self Destructo, Shop Turbojugend and wholesale through Cobraside Distribution.


As mentioned earlier, its been a decade (and countless amounts of Grolsch consumed by these lads) since a Peter Pan Speedrock album has been picked in North America for a release (last one being Pursuit Until Capture c/o Prophase Music).  The last time Peter Pan Speedrock made a presence in North America was at the turn of the century with two appearances at SXSW (2001 and 2003) and a 25 date tour through the US and Canada with Georgia based sex, riff n’ whiskey thumpers Nashville Pussy.  We here at Self Destructo Records have been avid fans of these guys for years and the opportunity to work alongside Suburban Records to push these guys in North America is something we’re not taking lightly, we’re proud to have Peter Pan Speedrock be a part of our roster alongside The Meatmen, The Hip Priests, Against The Grain, Razorbats and the rest of our brothers here.

Press Quotes:
“Has a SPEEDEALER meets ZEKE vibe, with some metal guitar solos thrown in for good measure. I dig it!” (Bob Balch – Fu Manchu)

“This rough n’ ready trio from the land of wooden shoes and fingers in the dikes, spanks it hard on this new platter with track after track of sonic fury.  Conjuring and summoning the beastly combos like Motorhead and Chapstik but still blazing original vapor trails across my cranium.  How 3 cats make this noise is a wonder for the ages! Me likey..alot!!  Check out Peter Pan Speedrock Weenbags.”  (Tesco Vee – The Meatmen)

“It’ll leave you crippled, knock-kneed, decapitated and impaled on a stick, you’re gonna love it.”  (Danko Jones)

When the band refers to its sound as a Top Fuel Dragster, they ain’t kidding. The entire album is a non-stop, NOS-boosted, adrenaline rush for a quarter mile (or in this case, 40:16 minutes).  It’s a brutal, slam-dance-inducing, motherfucker of an album from a band who rightfully owns the Dutch rock n’ roll scene – and they should, after nine albums and a career spanning nearly the last twenty years. (Cassette Culture – 5/5 stars)

” Okay it might not be doing anything new or ground-breaking, but nine albums in I wouldn’t have been expected anything other than a cutthroat rock ‘n’ roll from Peter Pan Speedrock, and whilst the likes of their now label mates Nashville Pussy and The Supersuckers have both released ‘more mature’ sounding albums this year these Dutch bitches might just be steaming up the inside looking to steal both of their crowns in the race for dirtiest punk n rollers in the world right now (ah but wait here comes Blag Dahlia in the The Arkansas Chuggabug….oh you see what I’m getting at here, don’t you?)  – (Uber

Motörhead, Turbonegro, AC/DC, The Hookers, Nekromantix, Zeke
