If anyone could equal the MC5 and Stooges at their insane best, it’s Nixon Now. There’s so much fuzzed-out, punked-up riff-crazy power on this disc that you’ll feel like brother Wayne Kramer or Fred “Sonic” Smith, whirling with their guitars like dervishes at an early MC5 show, convinced that rock was going to change the world and that the lifestyle would simply PREVAIL.
From the starz n’ stripes bellbottom-clad chick on the front to the song titles to the friggin’ group name, Nixon Now are the Compleat Package, classic underground white-knuckle hard rockers with guitars set on kill. This is all packed into 15 easy-to-swallow short sharp dollops of distortion and excitement, a mere one of which could provide enough energy for an entire album by most bands, not to mention light up the city of your choice on New Year’s eve.
Kevin McHugh,

Hamburg´s hipshakers Nixon Now are one such example of the MC5 legacy and, to tell you the truth, they do the two-minute-and-change supercharged fuzzbomb better than the originals. The one thing that can be said for Nixon Now is that the exude that rare rock n´ roll energy that is so friggin´ hard to capture on a studio recording. Altamont Nation Express actually sounds like the band going Chernobyl in front of a rabid, sweaty and panty-throwing audience. It´s all stun guitars with Kamikaze divebomb solos, Keith Moon-like percussive abandon and pre-Punk snotty spit n´fuck you attitude. You´ll most certainly dig Nixon Now if the MC5 appeals to you.

NIXON NOW: Altamont Nation Express (Elektrohasch EH 109) 2005 This long awaited piece of fury rocks even harder than Solution Revolution. It contains 15 raging tracks such as “”Revolver”” or “”Today Is The Day””, trippy instrumentals like “”Electric Teenage Nurnberg”” and “”Altamont Nation Exppress”” and relentlessly snotty covers of “”Car Wash”” by Rose Royce and Thin Lizzy’s “”The Rocker.””


15 tracker of rough, mean and filthy hard rock & roll / stoner rock. Provokative and right in your face. Got fans from MC 5 and HELLACOPTERS, which should give you a hint of what NIXON NOW is about !!

Nixon Now snarls like early Stooges, time tripping back to a time when Detroit had the most dangerous Rock and Roll music on earth. Full robust Iggy on steroids kinda sound – rips like stonerrock on speed with a growling groove driving home thee irresistable power of loud, forcerful uptempo and heavy Rock and Roll fury. This is one German band that definetely knows how to put the jackboot into some butt. I can..t get enough of Andi Schmidt..s nasal sneering vocals belting out the most incredible rock life lyrics. Pure punk legend stuff. Every song is a killer. Get ready to be nixonized.
