Psychopunch (1997-present) is a Punk band from Stockholm, Sweden.
ust before Christmas 1997, Mumbles (Real Name: Matte), and Hojan came to Joey's workplace and asked if he still played guitar and if he had something going on. J.M., former front man of the classic punk act TNT, and Joey had been talking about putting a band together for some time. Sometime in January 1998 they all got together to make it happen. The still unnamed act would practice TNT and Wild Bunch songs to start, but within a short time were writing their own material. Within a few days they had some original music, and their name Psychopunch vst. ("vst"meaning Vasteras the Swedish Industrial town where they lived) came to be. In early 2000, they released their premier album, We Are Just As Welcome As Holy Water In Satan's Drink, and a brief tour of Germany, Belgium, France and Switzerland ensued before embarking on their second opus Bursting Out Of Chucky's Town (2000). It was this second opus that saw them trying to capture the original vintage punk style of Generation X, The Dead Boys, etc. Indeed, the album did catch some of that spirit, but lacked some of the honesty of the era; it came across as contrived. A new outing, now planned, may prove to correct that.
