Biography

Skrolujte na dole za srpski!

Atomic Sunset is a rockabilly trio formed in 2003 in Belgrade, Serbia. Music roots vary from rawness of 50's Sun stuff to modern day rockers. The band combines rockabilly, surf, punk, swing and everything that takes to create unique and energetic modern rock'n'roll sound. They have been touring few times across Europe.

Atomic Sunset is a brainchild of one of the world's best upright slap bassists Djordje Stijepovic (Deke Dickerson, Lemmy Kilmister, Slim Jim Phantom, Scotty Moore band, Wanda Jackson). Accomplished guitarist Drazen Skaric (who was a co-leader of Havana Whisper with Djordje) is also a founding member of the band. The great recent addition is the drummer Atomic Alek (Soulfly, Bloodbath), well known for his long membership in one of the most famous Serbian rock bands Eyesburn.

Their debut album "Hot Rods & Pin-Ups" has been released in Serbia for Automatik/Mascom Records (Warner) in November 2007, and in the US for Ceklin Music in December 2007. It's available through the w-site www.atomicsunset.net, CDBaby, Interpunk, Itunes, Rhapsody and other fine retail stores.

Enjoy their tunes on this presentation and look out for title song video that has been aired on TV stations across Serbia (including
MTV). You can check it out on http://www.youtube.com/atomicsunsettv
