Inspired by their love for 50’s B-movies, The Satelliters started in 1993 with a nasty romp of drunken, three-chord garage punk for the intentions of “freaking people out.” Accompanied by their masked stage presence and the garb of aging hipsters, the band’s debut full-length Hi Karate was released in 1996 with the financial assistance of Dionysus Records.
Dipping into their huge discography (which includes a number of singles and EPs on Demolition Derby, Pin-up and Screaming Apple Records) Dionysus released four more CDs in the States over the next eight years, including Wylde Knights of Action in 1997, Shake, Shake, Shake in 1998, Sexplosive in 2001, and Hashish in 2005. Continuing to add to their overflowing catalog of psychedelic 60’s garage rock, the label put out The Satelliter’s self-titled EP in 2006, which would be followed with Where Do We Go? in 2007. ~ Mike DaRonco and Jason Lymangrover
