Norwegian rock band originally started around christmas 1989. Always surrounded by scandal and controversy, they have broken up, retired and changed members several times - their aliases include Turboneger, TRBNGR, and Stierkampf.These guys saved rock n' roll all on their own. Props on the parody of The Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" album cover. "Ass Cobra featured a move towards mid-70's punk & glam territory - in the spirit of proto punk pioneers á la The Dictators, The Ramones or late Iggy & The Stooges - plus a bit of New York Dolls' travesty thrown in. Ass Cobra paves the way harshly, with a sinister wash of cymbals, loud guitars and articulate riffs - think Poison Idea meets Alice Cooper. It is here, also, where Turbonegro developed their signature look: sailor caps, denim from head to toe, mustaches all around, and decidedly butch homoerotic accoutrements".
