Norwegian ďdeath-punkĒ rawk ní rollers Turbonegro will reunite for a performance at Norway's Quart Festival in July. Bassist Happy Tom (a.k.a Thomas Seltzer) reportedly told a Norway newspaper that ďamong the bands that played on last year's Quart Festival there were three that did Turbonegro covers: Queens Of The Stone Age, The Hives and Mayhem. Since then the organizers of Quart have approached us. And after an offer with the appropriate amount of money, we were convinced."

Although it is still not confirmed, it appears likely that the denim demons will play several other high profile gigs around Europe. "We have received lucrative offers from Germany, Italy and Sweden as well," said Tom.

Turbonegro played their last show on December 18th, 1998 at Mars in their hometown of Oslo before breaking up at the peak of their popularity in Europe and the beginning of their initial buzz in America. The band has since been the subject of a tribute album on Hopeless Records that includes Queens Of The Stone Age, Zeke, The Supersuckers, The ADZ, and many more. The band released four official albums, including the critically acclaimed 1999 cult classic Apocalypse Dudes and became mega-stars in Norway, where they even appeared in levis ads (due to their penchant for being clad head to toe in denim). A film titled Turbonegro: The Movie was released immediately after the bandís demise and was a underground smash in Norway. It chronicled the bandís rise to infamy, the insanity of their frontman Hank Von Helvete, the bandís flirtation with gay behavior, and their spectacular live show, which included Helvete launching fireworks out of his ass on stage.
