If you ever hear someone telling you that punk is dead, do us a favour and tell him to kick his future up his past. Punk has simply just become older and uglier. We give to you: The NimbWits!
After founding the legendary Danish thrash metal band ARTILLERY in 1982 with guitarist Jørgen Sandau, releasing several albums and touring the world, Carsten felt he had to close the circle and go back to his roots playing good old punk rock as he did back in 1979-80.
He gathered four of his good friends from back in the days and The NimbWits came to life; an ugly, old school stage wreckin' punk rock machine!
Even though punk literally has become older and uglier, make no mistake! These five punks from Copenhagen, Denmark are as dedicated to the music as they were back then, still sticking it to the man who tries to control peoples lives and their freedom of speech.
Early 2013 The NimbWits checked in at Wolf Rider Studio and recorded the demo EP "Punks not dead – just older and uglier" and gave their first interview for the biggest Danish music magazine Metalized.
Until now, The NimbWits have played a couple of gigs including their latest appearance at this year's Metal Magic Festival, been featured on a couple of punk rock compilations and have gotten radio air play in the USA, UK and France.
As for the future, the old school punk machinery hope to record a full length album and play as many live gigs as possible showing the world, that punk is not dead. It has simply just become older and uglier.
A big shout out to Søren Crawack who was an important asset to The NimbWits' early life and who wrote the awesome tune: Killer Mind. Best of luck to you and your ass kickin' band IMPALERS!
