DANGER!INFO

DANGER!MAN is a Punk/Hardcore – band from Oslo, Norway.

DANGER!MAN started in 2009, but all members have a long history of playing with norwegian bands in the 80’s and 90’s. (So Much Hate, Life… But How To Live It?, Bannlyst, Barn Av Regnbuen, Drunk, 2:20, Bøyen Beng,… etc etc)

DANGER!MAN’s music finds their roots in 80’s hardcore, but they also take good care of the early punkrock heritage. Whenever DANGER!MAN play live, it’s bottoms up, full speed ahead, and it ends up in a great party for everyone 😀

DANGER!MAN have released 4 albums so far.

  • “The Blame Game” – 2010 (Sjakkmatt Plater / Boss Tuneage) available on CD. LP is sold out.
  • “Kaos Conspiracy” – 2012 (Sjakkmatt Plater / Rookie Records) LP and CD are sold out. This is a split LP with The Bone Idles from Karlsruhe, Germany.
  • “Handicap” – 2016 (Sjakkmatt Plater / Boss Tuneage / Tonehjulet Kräftpest) available on LP with free CD. This is a split LP with Lucky Malice from Halden, Norway.
  • “Weapons of mass-distraction” – 2019 (Boss Tuneage / Sjakkmatt Plater / Kong Tiki Records / King Kongsvik – Dis-æsters våjs)

All these records can be downloaded for free from from the releases and music sections on this page 🙂

DANGER!MAN is a live-band! Playing live is their reason to still play in bands after 30+ years of punkrock!

DANGER!MAN enjoy their beer! If you’d like to have a beer with DANGER!MAN… Come down to the gig and do so!

All DANGER!MAN gigs this spring are cancelled

Yeah…. no big surprise I guess… but we’ve sadly had to cancel all our gigs planned for spring 2020. I guess we’re going to have to listen to this guy… and spend the next few months indoors, writing new songs for better times.

Looking forward to re-scheduling our UK tour + german dates as soom as possible… and can’t wait to see you all again. In the meantime… stay safe!!!

Cheers from TEAM-DANGER!MAN

DANGER!MAN & LUCKY MALICE @ Siste Reis – Halden

We decided to tear Siste Reis Pub in Halden apart together with our sistes in arms, Lucky Malice the other night. A truly memorable evening. Lucky Malice performed their brilliant backup vocals on the songs from the new DANGER!MAN LP, “weapons of mass-distraction”, live for the first time!!! Wow!!!

Great little venue + super-nice crowd! We really hope this punkrock-festival will become an annual happening…

Just to make things clear…

Just to make things clear…

As some of you might have noticed, DANGER!MAN’s participation at a pro-Palestine concert in Oslo a couple of months ago has caused quite a bit of controversy with some of the concert-groups organizing gigs for us, in alternative youth-houses in Germany on our tour next October. These houses apparently support Israel, while similar places in Scandinavia normally support the people in Gaza/Palestine in the ongoing conflict. This is why the level of commotion our participatian caused, really has taken us by surprise. It’s been quite dissapointing and even shocking actually, and we have now realized we have to make a public statement on this before rumours take completely over.

First of all… We, as all members of DANGER!MAN, have all been anti-racist, anti-facist and NEVER anti-semitic our entire lives, in both words and action. Therefore being accused of going against any of these pillars of our beliefs is definitely taken as an insult. We are proud to have been part of the leftwing part of the punkrock-scene since the mid 80s.

We do NOT regret having played at a pro-Palestinian festival. It’s never been a secret that we have done so in the past,… and we will most likely also do so in the future. If your concertgroups can accept that we feel this way about these issues, and agree to disagree with us… we’d be happy to discuss these subjects in a friendly manner over a beer after our gig in your place. If you can not accept this, and find our views and beliefs too offensive, then that’s just too bad. We are who we are, and those who know us know where we stand.

A lot of the controversy has from what we’ve been told, been about a couple of pictures posted on the website/twitter of the Norwegian Commity for Palestine. There’s one picture of DANGER!MAN in front of a Palestinian flag, along side another picture collage, showing German soldiers in Norway during WW2 and Israeli soldiers (most likely in Gaza). The text on the image is in Norwegian, and can be translated into: «Norway was occupied for 5 years. Palestine has been occupied for 72 years». We have been told that Germans find it unacceptable to show German soldiers from WW2 alongside Israeli soldiers from recent times. We however do not find this image collage offensive, as this image was found on a Norwegian website, and not intended for Germany, where the interpretation might be a bit different. This is NOT an attempt to normalize and marginalize the holocaust in any way. Just a reminder to the people in Norway, telling them that even if it’s a long time since the occupation of Norway ended, a lot of other people are not that lucky.

The concert in question was arranged by people who have been our trusted friends for decades, and there was absolutely NO antisemittic or racist context to the happening. Idealism, hope and focus on human rights was the theme through the whole festival. Boycot of the European Song Contest was another. To us that’s not all that important, as we always boycot the European Song Contest every year anyway, no matter where it’s arranged… crap festival!

But jokes aside… we totally accept the state of Israel’s right to exist, but only within its original borders. At the same time we also accept the Palestinians’ right to their own national state. This does NOT mean that we uncritically accept and support every action of HAMAS. They also will have to be held responsivle for their actions. This is definitely not a situation that can be seen as black and white.

We’d also like to point out that we think disagreeing with, and criticizing the actions of the state of Israel as an occupying millitary power has absolutely NOTHING to do with being anti-semitic. Israel is a national state, and must be held responsible for its actions as such. Criticism of the national state of Israel’s actions is NOT criticism of jews (neither as people of jewish descent or as a religious group) in general, and has therefore nothing to do with anti-semitism.

If you’ve managed to read through all this, and still want to have us come and play at your house… we look forward to seeing you in september/october.

Cheers!
