Gig in Oslo
On June 27 Taikes will play at Skuret in Oslo! It will be an awesome evening with three bands making a journey from 70's rock through garage rock to grunge. A couple of new songs will be played as well so don't miss it! Check out the event on Facebook!

Två spelningar i helgen: Uddevalla och Göteborg
Till helgen har Taikes två spelningar tillsammans med Lack of Loud och Boneman (DE). Det blir grym musik med stark grunge-stämning hela kvällen!

Fredag 28:e juni kl 21 på Kulturhuset Bastionen, Uddevalla. Mer info på Facebook-event.
Lördag 29:e juni kl 19 på Café Fängelset, Göteborg. Mer info på Facebook-event.

LACK OF LOUD är fyra killar från Uddevalla som älskar att spela rock och har gjort det tillsammans sedan ett år tillbaka. Genren är alternativ rock där de har influenser från band som Foo Fighters, Queens Of The Stone Age och Biffy Clyro med flera. LOL är även aktiva med att färdigställa sitt debutalbum som ska släppas sommaren 2013 med titeln 'Glimpse Of The Light Above'.

BONE MAN is a grunge/psychedelic rock group from northern Germany. The band has been shaped in times of pervasive teenage angst, and has ever since been about the corrosive hardships of life that contaminates the soul and the people in a world of mundane welfare and growing mental poverty. During our 5 year-life span we have released two EPs, two split records with a German and an Italian band and one single on mini CD, the release of our first full-length album on vinyl is scheduled for spring 2013. Since 2009, we have been touring on and off through Middle Europe, including Germany, Austria, Denmark, Belgium and Italy. This is all about raw fuzz rock, anger, human deficiencies, the spiritual abyss and the inner swamplands. To hell with it!
