1990 – present (28 years)
Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands
Power to the anarcho rockpunk-movement of Human Alert. For years this hard-boiling punkband from Amsterdam, Holland is rocking all over the world and is famous for their political awareness and great live-shows. The ‘Bravo Boys’ tear you apart with their humour and cynical irony while they march against fascists, commonness, hypocrisy, kapitalism and 9 to 5.
April 2005 they released their fifth full-length album ‘Ego Ego’. It’s another chapter in the handbook of ‘How To Make Great Rockpunkmusic’ and will kick your head again. On this album we’re talking about Hard-Punk, Hard-Rock, Dark Irony, Political Statements, Hilarious Humour, Uncommon Sense and Egomaniac behaviour. It contains a lot of different songs in various languages(English, Dutch, French and even German!). So, Europe, here’ they are again!!
And as far as their live-performance concerns, man can say Human Alert
really beats out the shit of it. The band is famous for their outrageous Rockpunk-shows. This Theatre Of Hate squeezes all its frustration and anger through a tiny hole which is too small for this load of junk and blows it right in ones face. Their show is chaotic, wild, it's Hard As Fuck, it's hilarious and unpredictable. A great number of people all over can assent to that… "Plus rock n roll que Turbonegro, plus disco que Village People. Alors Pogo! " (as seen on Lyon poster) "You guyz are inzane!" (a Leipzig punk.)
The band performed their last show in 2012 at OCCII Amsterdam.
