The A.C.'s have been smacking the listener around in the well worn dark alleys, still crusty with the puke and blood of street punk's heroes and villains. “ (Alternative Press)
“Very few bands have the gusto or talent to continually release good material on a consistent basis, but the Turbos somehow do it every time, each album being leagues ahead of the one before it.” -NY Waste
THE TURBO A.C.'S: — The world is on the brink of everything bad. Lead singer Kevin Cole has narrowly escaped his collapsing home of New York City to Puerto Rico, only to have his punk rock pizza shop choked drowned by Hurricane Maria. What better time and place to write the perfect surf laden punk rock record for a new generation of kids who despise the government, their parents, and each other.
Enter: Radiation. Perhaps the most pronounced rock n roll document since The Ramones, with classic outcast hooks like, «There's something wrong with everyone I see, but baby, there's nothin wrong with me.» Radiation will sweep the land, the kids will be infected, and The Turbo AC s will be the cockroach that just keeps charging in a time when there are no signs of life.
It all started on the streets of New York City where the A.C.'s released a number of EPs and compilation tracks on various labels before issuing their debut full-length on NYHC pioneer Blackout Records. Damnation Overdrive showcased the A.C.'s adrenaline-soaked punk rock n roll, a sound called Dick Dale + Motörhead + The Misfits, which equalled touring both dingy clubs and enormous Warped Tour stages.
The A.C.'s returned with Winner Take All. This album expanded more into the surf guitar elements, catching the interest of Nitro Records, who released Fuel for Life produced by Roger Miret of Agnostic Front. Then came Automatic, produced by Blag Dahlia of Dwarves and mixed by Billy Milano of S.O.D., and it was widely hailed as the band's most intense work yet. The Turbo A.C. s supported the effort with an exhausting run of live dates.
Avenue X next appeared in June, followed by Live to Win one year later, then followed by Kill Everyone, their biggest album yet, which brings us up to Radiation. Throughout all of it, they were constantly touring America, Canada, Europe, and Australia, feeling right at home doing major tours with a diverse and impressive group of artists like Flogging Molly, The Dwarves, The Dropkick Murphys, Turbonegro, Boss Hoss, The Hellacopters, and others.
«Where most NYC punk bands have trouble gigging outside of the tri-state area, The Turbo AC's are touring Europe on their own dime, sleeping in squats, crashing tour vans and then fixing them with duct tape — true story, I swear. Put that in your nose and sniff it.» James Lee — Punk Magazine
