Cybergenic Rock Star by Wade - imported from Sweden by Listening Post Music
The band started up in the waves of big Grunge time. And both their first album "Full Circle" and their second "Evidence" had some kind of Grunge sound to it. But from their third album "Odd Man Out" they got rid of the heavy rock sound and become a pop punk band with lovely chorus tunes (some even said they've become a power pop band). Songs like "Super Ball" and "Elvis" made it to the radio charts and soon after that Wade went to the U.S. of A for a big exploitation. Unfortunately some gravel came into the machinery. Still, they released a fourth album on West Side, the "Cybergenic Rockstar Profile". The album-included loads of hit material; just listen to the excellent single "Freak Or A Star".
Q: Who's in the band?
Freddie: Fred Really -Bass lead voc, Robbie and Richie Foor (Twin brothers)-Guitars
and back voc. and Peter Shell -Drums.
Freddie: I dunno if I would call us THAT Skate Punk, but yeah, we all
relate to Skateboarding/ Snowboarding and that way of life...Robbie used
to dominate the local skate scene back home. he even claimed the throne
as Swedish MiniRamp champion once..but only got second place..hehe..
Robbie: Yeah, I try to ride as soon as I get the chance, but unfortunately
in that case, we don't really have that much time off..It's hard to stay
on top of things if you don't get the time to practice and ride all the
time..but we all have our skateboards with us when we tour and sometimes
we even have some time to hang with our fans and visit some skatepark
Freddie: Well, ofcourse..growing up we used to listen to pretty much
the same music as we play, we kinda live the life of the music we play,
and our fans live the life of the music we play, so I guess you could
Freddie: Yeah, we were on the US leg of the tour, unfortunately we were
unable to join up for the Australian leg, because of the upcoming Blink-182
tour. If Kevin Lyman, the guy who runs the tour wants us back, We'd be
more that greatful. It's such a party man, all the bands, the crowds and
the traveling..it's just a killer!
Freddie: Yeah, there was this one time, in New York, we were getting
ready to get on stage after one of the other bands..I won't say the name
of the band though...any how..they were about to round up their show,
and the moshpit was going crazy..all of a sudden the lead singer shouts
to the crowd -"Hit the guy standing to the left of you"
Freddie: This last month we've been laying down some new tracks for our
the album. June through July we just reherse and record, then we plan
on visiting Australia in August, do some touring, learn how to surf and
