Teenage Kicks of My Generation
Nostalgia for an age yet to come…
It is all about the "rebel music" of surfers and punks from the early sixties till today. What started off with the violent guitar licks of Link Wray and Dick Dale in the early 60's laid a foundation for generations of garage and punk-rock bands to come. Teenage Kicks of My Generation is a party with live bands and dj's for anyone that has some kind of punkrocker spirit and loves to dance to distorted guitars.
What kind of music to expect?
60’s bands like The Stooges, The Who, The Trashmen, The Sonics, The Kinks…
70’s bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam, The Undertones, Buzzcocks…
80’s bands like The Fuzztones, The Nomads, The Cynics, Chesterfield Kings, Lyres…
90’s bands like The Hellacopters, The Pixies, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Jane’s Addiction…
00’s bands like The Strokes, The Hives, Queens Of The Stoneage, Arctic Monkeys…
The genres (according to Allmusic.com):
Surf Music (early 60's)
Surf Rock was one of the most popular forms of American rock & roll of the early '60s. Distinguished by reverb-drenched guitar, rolling instrumentals that were designed to sound like crashing waves, and simple, three-chord songs, the music may sound similar on the surface, but it was revolutionary music for its time, exploring sonic territories previously unheard in rock music. The first wave of surf rock was kicked off by Dick Dale and his single "Let's Go Trippin." The single was a local hit in California, but it inspired countless bands to form — groups like the Chantays and Surfaris, who had national hits ("Pipeline" and "Wipe Out," respectively)… The sounds of the instrumental surf rock echoed throughout the sonic experimentations of '60s guitarists, and the genre remained popular into the '90s, thanks to the efforts of several generations of surf-rock revivalists.

Garage Rock (mid 60's)
Garage Rock was a simple, raw form of rock & roll created by a number of American bands in the mid-'60s. Inspired by British Invasion bands like the Beatles, Kinks, and Rolling Stones, these midwestern American groups played a variation on British Invasion rock. Since they were usually young and amateurish, the results were much cruder than their inspirations but that is what made the sound exciting. Most of the band emphasized their amateurishness, playing the same three chords, bashing their guitars and growling their vocals. In many ways, the garage bands were the first wave of do-it-yourself punk rockers. Hundreds of garage bands popped up around America and a handful of them — the Shadows of Knight, the Count 5, the Seeds, the Standells — had hits, but most were destined for obscurity. In fact, nearly all of the bands were forgotten in the early '70s, but the Nuggets compilation brought them back to the spotlight.

Proto-Punk (late 60's)
Proto-punk refers to a small group of groundbreaking, largely uncategorizable bands who began to emerge in the late '60s, up to the point when punk itself became a phenomenon (around 1975-76). Obviously, none of these artists could be classified as proto-punk until long after the fact; it was never a cohesive movement, nor was there a readily identifiable proto-punk sound that made its artists seem related at the time. What ties proto-punk together is a certain provocative sensibility that didn't fit the prevailing counterculture of the time. Proto-punk challenged not only mainstream rock conventions, but the utopianism and general positivity of the hippie movement. It was consciously subversive and fully aware of its outsider status — sometimes because the bands had arty ambitions, sometimes for the thrill of thumbing their noses. In terms of its lasting influence, much proto-punk was primitive and stripped-down, even when it wasn't aggressive, and its production was usually just as unpolished. It also frequently dealt with taboo subject matter, depicting society's grimy underbelly in great detail, and venting alienation that was more intense and personal than ever before. The first proto-punk group was the Velvet Underground, for a variety of reasons: their boundary-shattering lyrical content, their use of feedback, distortion, and white noise, their unpredictable (yet song-centered) experimentalism, their amateurish technique. Emerging around 1969, the raucous, almost amelodic rock of the MC5 and the Stooges did more to set the sonic blueprint for punk than any other bands.

Punk (late 70's)
Punk Rock returned rock & roll to the basics — three chords and a simple melody. It just did it louder and faster and more abrasively than any other rock & roll in the past. Although there had been several bands to flirt with what became known as punk rock — including the garage rockers of the '60s and the Velvet Underground, the Stooges, and the New York Dolls — it wasn't until the mid-'70s that punk became its own genre. On both sides of the Atlantic, young bands began forsaking the sonic excesses that distinguished mainstream hard rock and stripping the music down to its essentials. In New York, the first punk band was the Ramones; in London, the first punk band was the Sex Pistols. Although the bands had different agendas and sounds — the Ramones were faster and indebted to bubblegum, while the Pistols played Faces riffs sloppier and louder than the Faces themselves — the direct approach of the bands revolutionized music in both the U.K. and the U.S. In America, punk remained an underground sensation, eventually spawning the hardcore and indie-rock scenes of the '80s, but in the UK, it was a full-scale phenomenon. In the U.K., the Sex Pistols were thought of as a serious threat to the well-being of the government and monarchy, but more importantly, they caused countless bands to form.

Garage Rock Revival (mid 80's)
An indie-label movement that emerged in the mid-'80s, garage rock revival bands aimed to recapture the wild, rowdy, raucous spirit of '60s garage rock. Of course, where the original garage rockers were concerned with imitating their favorite British bands, the revivalists imitate the garage bands themselves — so their music was full of fuzz-tone guitar, Farfisa organ riffs, and sneering vocals. Like the similarly timed rockabilly and surf revivals, garage rock revivalists also appropriated the original music's sense of style, self-consciously playing up their personal favorite qualities — toughness, sleaziness, brashness, manic energy, rebellion, party-hearty spirit, what have you. Since it was self-conscious, it was sometimes done with a knowing wink and a bit of exaggeration, but regardless, many of the revival bands shared an underlying assumption that garage rock's virtues embodied the true spirit of rock & roll. Garage rock revival never achieved a wide audience, but after the first wave of '80s bands — including the Chesterfield Kings, the Mono Men, the Lyres, the Fleshtones, the Fuzztones, and several Billy Childish-led groups — it did maintain a devoted cult following into the '90s, with numerous bands on the Bomp, Estrus, and Sympathy for the Record Industry labels.

Surf Revival (early 90's)
Surf revival was a small indie-label phenomenon featuring chiefly instrumental bands who were dedicated to recreating the twangy, echo-drenched sound of '60s surf guitar. Some bands used the sound to create a mysterious atmosphere, but more often than not, surf revival didn't quite play it straight, adding campy humor and kitschy references to '50s and early-'60s pop culture (for example, the scores of sci-fi, horror, and Western films). Many surf revival bands had better chops on their instruments than their predecessors, and could thus play their music at breakneck punk-rock speeds if they chose (usually with a knowing wink). Surf revival first appeared at the tail end of the '80s and continued on through the '90s; its biggest artists included Man or Astro-Man?, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, Laika & the Cosmonauts, and the Mermen.

Garage Punk(early 90's)
Before the punk-pop wing of America's '90s punk revival hit the mainstream, a different breed of revivalist punk had been taking shape in the indie-rock underground. In general, garage punk wasn't nearly as melodic as punk-pop; instead, garage punk drew its inspiration chiefly from the Detroit proto-punk of the Stooges and the MC5. Attitude and noise were far more important to garage punk than catchy melodies, and the attitude was reflected in the sound of the music: dirty, grimy, sleazy, angry, menacing, and just flat-out ugly. Some of the first garage punk bands who appeared in the late '80s and early '90s (Mudhoney, the Supersuckers) signed with the Sub Pop label, whose early grunge bands shared some of the same influences and aesthetics (in fact, Mudhoney became one of the founders of grunge). Although garage punk never came close to hitting the mainstream, bands like New Bomb Turks and the Humpers helped maintain a cult audience for the style through the '90s. Additionally, several bands in the stoner-rock revival movement (Nebula, for instance) began crafting a slightly psychedelic variation on garage punk.

with the coming of a the millennium a new generation of bands brought along a wide array of styles and influences heavily leaning on the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. All bringing their own neo-retro style to the table they have the same punk-rock roots and spirit breathing through their music.
