Plainride sign with Ripple Music!


That is right. We are indeed out of control. As of Summer 2016, Plainride, your local Colognian Riff Dealers, are stepping up their game big time: We’ve teamed up with the hottest, fuzziest, highwayiest label in the history of labels: Ripple Music! Worshiped by its fans and feared by the industry’s fat cats. AND ALSO STRAIGHT OUT OF MOTHERFUDGIN’ SAN RAMON, CALIFORNIA! We can’t begin to describe how rad this is. Which is why we won’t.

Instead, you should head on over to Ripple HQ and buy their entire discography, because it is AMAZING!

We’ll be following up with a re-release of Return Of The Jackalope and fantastic news for all the wax-heads later this year. Prepare your wallets, FOR THERE WILL BE VINYL.

Tons of Jackalove, talk soon y’all crazy beautiful people, share the news, and RIDE ON!



Heads up, Fuzzalopes!

It’s been a while since we attempted shooting a music video and – as some of you may remember – it didn’t end well for our beloved Fabe. On this day however, we’re proud to tell you that the Plaintrain prevailed at last and finally managed to ban some of our shenanigans on tape for you.
Ladies and Gentlejacks, we give you: Warpdrive!

This bad motherfuzzer of a video was planned, shot, directed & edited by and together with our good friends at Kreativrudel – Bonn’s most badass creative agency! We raise our horns to you!

The guys from Deaf Forever were kind enough to lend us their website for our vile purposes. So head over here to check out our brand new vid!

To top things off, here’s a bunch of GIFs from the video we put together for you to use when- and wherever you deem it applicable.

Cheers & FUZZ ON!

Return Of The Jackalope

This is it.

As of today, we’re unleashing Return Of The Jackalope on the world and we’re a proud ass bunch as you can see on this totally real and physically accurate picture!

You can now find our album pretty much anywhere on the internet (any service that’s not already covered should follow in the next few hours or so) but if you wanna do us a favor, go get it on Bandcamp here.

We’d like to express our utmost gratitude to all the marvelous people, who have helped us make this happen: Andrew, The Jackalope, Franz Abendroth, Artur Bäcker, Sophie Holtz, Timon Menge, Sven Röbel, Andy Seibt, Szymon Swoboda and Saimon Galus, our parents, pets and roommates, our van, all the gallons of beer that were consumed during the process of this release and last but not least all of you magnificent bastards out there!

Now bask in the fuzziness of the Jackalope and GO SPREAD THE ROCK!
Plainride Over & Out

Jackalope Fuzz Review [GER]

Jeder Gitarrist kennt sie, die Suche nach dem “Holy Grail”, dem perfekten Fuzz. Schon einmal vorweggenommen: Meine Suche endet erstmal hier.

Zu meiner Person: Ich bin Mitte 20, spiele Rhythm-Guitar und bin ein Pedal-Geek!

Ich hatte schon reichlich Kontakt zu Fuzz-Pedalen, von Bodentretern von der Stange, bis hin zu edlen Boutique Pedalen, auf meinem Brett haben sich schon zig Zerren getummelt, unter anderem auch der Fuzzly Bear von KMA-Machines und der kommt da so schnell auch nicht mehr weg. Denn gerade als Rhythmus Gitarrist hat man mit Zerren immer ein Problem: Akkorde! Continue reading
