Hola Amigos! It's
been a busy autumn at the headquarters. Mr. Toto
is now completely integrated in the 5 headed Troll
of Null$kate$nylterne, and this autumns concerts
have been a total blast.
In Ås we had the pleasure of participating
in the "Pubdagene"-festival. Close to
400 people squeezed in at the local Pizza Parlor
to see and hear us kick in the overdrive. Due
to a few minor drum technical problems - that's
the way it goes when your blessed with a hard
hitting' drummer like Tommy - we had to postpone
our stage entrance with approximately 40 minutes.
Anyway, when we finally hit the stage we had an
absolutely great time. Reports from our beloved
audience after the show told us that several glasses,
t-shirts and even bra's where lost during our
set. Not have we only played some stunning concerts
this autumn, we have also had the opportunity
to taste some of Norway's fine fast food kitchens.
In Moss we ate an absolutely delicious dish made
of noodles and shrimps. Together with our fellow
companions; the Carburetors, we were all stunned
by the extremely good price-quality ratio that
the restaurant were able to deliver. 50 NKr. for
a tasty and complete dinner, what more could you
ask? So fans and other fast food lovers - the
gourmets of Null$katte$nylterne strongly recommend
you to explore the dining facilities in Moss Rock
City as soon as possible. Talking about recommendations
we would also like to remind you about our new
release on HappyRape Records. We have put 2 tracks
on their superb sampler Norwegian Nihilism. If
you are (once again) late with your present buying
for Christmas - we strongly recommend you to check
out the sampler. Containing 19 tracks of fine
family entertainment it is this years recommendation
and a suitable gift for mom, dad, other family
members and of course friends. If you would like
to improve your chances on a potential girl/boyfriend
the sampler is an absolutely must, success is
about to come your way if you are the thoughtful
giver of this fine item.
Dear website readers, We have yet another
confession to bring from the headquarters. Micke
has decided to leave the combo. The decision was
taken after our furious show in Copenhagen in
June. The argument for retirement was the hard
work and lifestyle that life on the road with
a hard rockin' band lead to. He now wants to spend
more time at home playin' cricket, tennis and
polo with his kids. Micke will also have some
additional time to spend on songwriting and producing
in his brand new, fully equipped 48 - track recording
studio based in the basement of his mansion. In
addition Dirk von Schneider and Nosebleeder Records
has offered him a position as Senior Talent Officer
in Schneider's organisation. "I have to think
it over, but talent development is something I
definitively would like to spend more time on"
is Micke's comment to Schneider's offer. In a
statement regarding the retirement Micke says
"I have to confess that it not is an easy move
for me to make the step I’ve just done. It has
been a lot of fun working with the highly qualified
and talented young men of Null$katte$nylterne.
For sure I will miss them, and together we were
able to create moments of pure passion and pleasure.
Both in the studio and on the stage I felt that
we all were able to get out the very best in each
of us. That made every stage appearance or day
spent in the studio with these guys incredible
fun and exciting. I will also save all those precious
memories from time spent with Null$katte$nylterne
on airports, train stations, backstage, around
the dining table waiting for some overcooked pasta
to be served, in the van with hours and hours
of endless driving, soundchecking with crappy
PAs and all those other band things that can turn
out incredible boring if you not are surrounded
by such great guys. In addition I would of course
like to thank all the nice people we've met along
the way. A cheers goes out to all you dedicated
people at record labels around the world we’ve
been lucky to work with. Promoters and stagehands
on all the venues from Tromso to Peesten - thanks
for all your kindness and professionality - it's
been a pleasure collaborating with you. Last,
but definitively not least, a big hug goes out
to YOU - a part of our dedicated audience. THANK
YOU". "Of course it's a pity that Micke is leaving,
but that's the way it goes sometimes" says Tommy
- Null$katte$nylterne's hard-hitting and good-looking
drummer. "I am convinced that our best is yet
to come. We started immediately working with a
replacement for Micke and I am sure we've found
the right guy. We've spent some warm summer weeks
intensively rehearsing with our new frontman and
I am proud to tell you that we got a hell of a
stallion coming up. He's got the voice and the
moves, and it's gonna be with great pleasure we
are presenting the new guy in front of a live
audience. First in the end of August in front
of a local motorcycle gang and then in the beginning
of September he will come along for the Safety
Pin Festival in Oslo were he will be joined by
the one and only Kike Turmix for a couple of songs.
In addition we are really looking forward to present
some new material for our beloved audience. The
notorious Eirik the Viking has made some romantic
experiences during the light Nordic summer nights.
Those experiences has materialised into some really
great tunes - like his romantic life nowadays
they are quick and catchy - we all love them and
it's gonna be great to kick out these songs on
stage in front of you. Reviews from around the
world on Alpha Motherfuckers are now tickin' in
at the headquarters and they are all quite good.
Check for example this one in German http://www.brokenviolence.de/mb/reviews/punk0601.htm
U$ citizens who wants to spend their hard earned
bucks on a fine piece of wax filled with high
quality artists and good songs might order the
Alpha Motherfuckers album at Hopeless Records
Null$katte$nylterne showed up in a radio show
at NRK P3 called "Kaliber" ....
The newspaper "JP København" (Copenhagen,
Denmark) awarded Null$katte$nylterne for the
weeks best band name, cool.....!
Null$katte$nylterne has just returned from their crusade to the very north and
Germany. The gigs on Fuckin North Pole Ska & Punk Festival in
Tromsø were a complete blast. We did our very best not to be tempted by the dangerous
combination of goodlookin women and hardkickin booze in the polar capitol of
Europe. Our inner concentration and strength proved once again to be successful and by
concentrating on our main mission in the city we were able to deliver two high quality
sets of that good old P-råkk music.
In Germany we had the pleasure of meeting our colleagues from Canada; the Real Mc
Kensis. As they like us - are playing Sailorman on the Turbonegro
tribute album Alpha Motherfuckers we had decided to kick their asses quite
hard and then invite them for some fistfighting. But when we met them they turned up to be
even better equipped physically than we are. We therefore made a quick change in our plans
and invited them for a sip of Rum in the next door bar. Talking to them was very
interesting and we had the pleasure of exchanging useful information with the Canadians on
sailing, navigation and other maritime issues.
Record buyers please check out our new release on HDP (Heavy Drinking Productions) from
Gothenburg, Sweden. Our version of long time Spanish underground legend Paralisis
Permantes Autosufficienca is included on A collection of great
dance tunes vol. 1 together with several other European and North-American bands!
Attention world - news from the headquarters:
Rumours and pressure are growing and we have to declare the following statement for you:
Yes it's true - Eirik the Viking is involved in well-paid and lucrative jazzprojects.
We know that this might be a serious shock and a major disappointment for some of you. We
all tried to keep this a secret - but his TV appearances the last days (he even appeared
on cult programme # 1 in Norway; Påskenøtter with his double bass) and
growing attention from the media has lead us to the conclusion of telling you the truth.
We know how you feel - we have also asked ourselves the same questions as you -
how can such a talented, attractive young man - known for a gorgeous sex appeal
(attracting both femmes and hommés) be involved in that kind of entertainment?
In a short press communiqué received by fax at the headquarters last night, Eirik the
Viking clearly spells out that rock is cooler than jazz. In addition he admits - "my
stage appearances with the double bass hasn't
lead to much female attraction - even though some petting have taken place backstage after
a few gigs".
This comment made us a bit more tranquillos and signs are saying we'll have him back in
line before too long.
It will be great to have him at home - his presence at stage are able to stir up a riot at
every venue and we
are looking forward to get him back in line.
Check out the gigs section in a few days - if our too well paid managers are able to
move their asses - things are looking quite bright for concerts both above the polar
circle and on the European continent in the near future!
The band also appeared at NRK1s Miitnyyyyyitth (Midtnytt)
Juha Mieto EP getting good reviews, the band were also interviewed by TV-Norge!

Rumours from the headquarters at Nosebleeder Records tells that the JUHA MIETO EP is on
the way to the pressing plant. The record is about the hit the stores in the end of
January and contains four brand new songs recorded by Null$katte$nylterne. One of the
songs is a tribute to the king of cross country skiing Mr. JUHA MIETO.

12Oz Rebels, The Hymans, Trailor Park Riot.....
Null$katte$nylterne have recently spent some more hours in the well equppiped mansion of
"Hit even Harder Studios". Three brand new songs were recorded and the result is
to be released later this autumn. The vinyl compliation "Fuckin´ North Pole Punk
Rock Collection Vol.1" on Underground Records in Tromsø has just hit the streets.
It's a fine piece of colored wax filled with high quality punkrock made above the Polar
Circle. Reports from the barentsregion tells that it's freezy to wear a mohawk-haircut
when it's 20 below, but due to great progressions in the technology of long underwear acts
like Null$katte$nylterne, Nikkeby Lufthavn, Nihilists and Nagazaki are able to deliver
even in temperatures below zero! Truly a great bunch of vikings! Chances are good that
this record will be a perfect companion in the dark and cold evenings of autumn. Lit up
the fireplace, tell your mummy to make you a big cup of hot chocolate, put on the sampler
- turn the volume up and let the good time roll!! "Muga 16 anos 2000"
compilation is out in Bilbao,Spain distribution Safety-Pin records (Madrid).

A collection 7" is on the way, Null$katte$nylterne´s "Harmoni" is
included, stay tuned!.
After numerous requests from the international part of Nosebleeder Records and a strong
urge to conquer the U$ of A; Null$katte$nylterne included their brand new song "kom
igjen" for the "rock em suck em vol2." compilation. The sampler is released
by the mighty label Evil Midget Records based in Dallas, TeXas, U$A.
Null$katte$nylterne has once again hit the studio. Due to minor technical problems in the
now legendary "Hit Hard Studios", the band decided to move the battleground for
the new recordings to the comfortable mansion of "Hit Even Harder Studios". The
sessions were as usual guided by the "Wizard of Sound" Mr. Geir Vector behind
the wheel. After 48 hours of champagne & sound extravaganza it seems like the boys
have been able to put pure highlights on tape. Rumours says that during the session new
instruments like horns, organs and saxophones were added to the energic music of
Null$katte$nylterne. Hopefully we'll be able to hear the final result during this autumn.
The music magazine "Backstage" gave 5 out of 6 for the Prudence tribute:
"shake hands and be friends with prudence"(split Null$katte$nylterne/tugboat).
The biggest Spanish music magazine Ruta 66,had an article with Null$katte$nylterne.

Member" on the Rockgalla in Namsos, Norway.
