BETWEEN THE LINES IN HAMBURG AND OSLO !!
GREAT live album recorded at two different locations during their '98 European tour: at the Fabrik in Hamburg on may 10th, 1998 and at their (then) last ever show at Mars, Oslo on december 18th, 1998 !
Just as a little reminder on the greatness of Turbo's live performances let's quote the promo sheet for this release: "If ABBA were all guys, had been born 30 years later and had grown up on Black Flag, Phil Spector, The Stones, pornography and speed, this is what they would have sounded like. This is the real thing: No promo budgets, no 18 month old tattoos, no bullshit, just one of the most powerful bands in the history of rock'n'roll !"
The artwork of the front sleeve was culled from a beautiful 70's poster advertising for "The Magic Show" of American magician Doug Henning, and put into turbo context by american illustrator Frank Kozik.
The first 3000 copies of the vinyl edition featured a sleeve with embossed band name and included a large-size poster for their European "Darkness Forever" tour with Nashville Pussy while a limited number of the CD came with a free "Turbojugend" sticker.
Very limited quantities of the Bitzcore LP were pressed transparent blue as well as gray vinyl.
Line-up on this recording:
Hanky (vocals), Euroboy & Rune (guitars), Happy-Tom (bass), Pål (keyboards) + Chris Summers (drums)
