TIME FOR A LITTLE VACATION
For over six years, we've been gigging, writing, recording, shooting, screwing up, fighting, partying, working our asses off and having the time of our lives.
All at the same time! We've had some amazing shows, wrote a bunch of songs we're still proud of, met interesting people and pissed them off.
We feel that it's time to do things a little differently. So for the next 12 months, the Shagging Ponies gigging machine will be turned off. That means we won't be playing live for at least a year, except for maybe when they invite us to play at the Coachella festival or something. We'll delete this message when that happens, but it might not be wise to hold our breaths.
That's right, we have a modest side!
Don't worry, we're not gonna dissappear altogether! Gonzo, Flying Vinnie V and Dr. Fill have a bunch of other bands they'll be enjoying themselves with and Paolo and Lou will probably sit around, drink beer and write songs. GREATEST tITS won't be the last shit you motherfuckers get to hear us play! We'll keep you up to speed, we promise!
Our well deserved vacation starts on Halloween, which means our last gig will be on the 29th of Rocktober in Wormerveer. You should be there to wave at us as we board the plane of relaxation.

FLYING VINNIE V.
After Johnny Bronco left the band, several temporary Ponies accompanied Shagging Ponies during the live-shows and made sure there was always a second guitarist on stage with Dave Gonzo. There was still some insecurity about Bronco's return, though, and while Gonzo and DeScorpio were hoping he'd one day come back..... He didn't....
The show had to go on, so an ad was posted on social media, with the Ponies asking for a filthy son of a bitch to once and for all fill Johnny's boots and be a full-fledged member of the dirtiest rockband in Europe. No less than 7 guitarists showed up at the auditions for a new Shagging Ponies guitar hero, but as soon as Flying Vinnie V. showed up, we all knew. He looked, smelled, acted and played like a Pony. So we accepted him into our ranks and we'd like to proudly present him to you! Welcome, Vinnie!
February 11, 2016
The long awaited Shagging Ponies debut album is finally here! Are you too lazy to get your ass to one of our shows? No problem! Buy a CD in our webshop! Are you too cheap to spend the money on some real rock 'n fuckin' roll? No problem! Check us out on Spotify! It's free if you don't mind the fucking ads in between your Shagging Ponies songs... If you do have some money to spend, if you're dying to see us play live: Come and get some at one of our gigs!

SO LONG, TRIX!
When Johnny Bronco left the band, he told us he'd be back. We're still hoping he will be, but in the meantime, Shagging Ponies has a mission. That mission is to play rock 'n roll until we drop! Temporary Pony Trix Turner has helped us out in the last six months, but is moving on now. The pressure of being a Pony is not to be taken lightly and Turner is looking for a band with less deadlines and a shorter set. A new guitarhero is waiting to get started and will do so during our Pre-release party in our own rehearsal space. He will be playing with us for the largest part of the Scream City tour. Wanna meet him? Look at our agenda and come and get some!

Check out our new video for "Living on The Road" from the forthcoming album GREATEST tITS.
Shagging Ponies would like to inform that no beer was harmed during the recording of this video!
December 22, 2015
Our debut album GREATEST tITS is nearly finished. Studio Audioshape in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands is putting the final touches on the album, mixing and mastering our songs. The same guy that produced our collaboration with Koen Crucke, 'Carry On', will put his stamp of approval on our first album, as well. Wanna get your hands on a copy? Check out our tourdates HERE and come and get some!

SCREAM CITY TOUR
We’ll be throwing our CD Release party on the 6th of February, 2016, in The Waterhole in Amsterdam. But that doesn’t mean that everybody in The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium has to drive all the way up to fuckin’ Amsterdam! No sir! We’ll be kicking off the SCREAM CITY TOUR in Amsterdam, but we’ll be travelling through The Netherlands, Belgium and hopefully Germany to give everybody a chance to see us play live and buy our album, GREATEST tITS. You can listen to the album on Spotify, Deezer, iTunes, etcetera, of course. But we promise you that buying the album from us gives you an exclusive fuckin’ booklet with some really awesome features and extra info!
October 6, 2015
As many of you already know, Johnny Bronco has left the band due to his substance abuse problem. He is currently in rehab and we have no way of telling if he'll ever return to the Pony-stables. A legion of willing guitar heroes has auditioned, but we only had room for one sick motherfucker. We chose well: Meet Trix Turner at one of our shows or look him up on Facebook/Twitter.

Carry On, Belgium!
Ever since we recorded our song 'Carry On' with living Flemish legend Koen Crucke, the nice people in Belgium have been playing our songs on Spotify and YouTube. During our first live-show with Crucke at Coq Rock 2015, the crowd was singing along every single word and cheered like there was no tomorrow. We're looking forward to playing in Belgium more and more, along with our friends from Mr. Myst and Koen Crucke.

SHAGGING PONIES DEBUT ALBUM
The drumtracks for 10 brand new songs have been recorded by Dr. Fill and several more songs have been written and recorded as demotracks by Lou, Paolo, Johnny and Dave.
We will be putting 12 of these new songs on our debut album and we're trying to decide which ones we like best. The album should be coming out in January 2016. We'll keep you up to date on everything and will try to release a sneak preview in August/September.

100th PONIES SHOW
We almost let it pass without noticing. The Summer Live Festival, which we will be headlining, will be our 100th official Shagging Ponies show!
Now, we can’t let that happen without celebrating with all of our friends.
During our show we will give away an accoustic livingroomgig to one lucky guy or gall present. So make sure you go to Schinveld May the 31st of 2015.

“This is no ordinary band with naughty boys who’re happy to be away from home for a bit. These are real musicians, who must’ve rehearsed endlessly and are thus capable of presenting the audience with solid entertainment that beats like a lion’s heart, screams like a Formula 1 racing car and rocks like a fight between Hell’s Angels and those other bikers…”
January 12, 2015
ITUNES & SPOTIFY
Download our songs on iTunes and support us. We promise we will use the
money to buy booze and party our asses off.
If you don't want to spend the money on our songs, you can simply
download them for free on this very website.
If you do, please buy a fuckin' shirt. That way we can still buy booze
and party our asses off while you look awesome in your Shagging Ponies T-Shirt and party your own ass off whilst listening to our amazing songs!

Column Lou DeScorpio
Shagging Ponies frontman Lou DeScorpio has always been a motherfucker with a mouth. Unable to shut up, he’s been forcing his opinion down throats since 1983. And now he finally found a way to be more effective. Read his very first column that will be out weekly from now on, on 3voor12. It’s in Dutch, but if you want the English translation, we might be able to help you out…
October 28, 2014
The video for Carry On is finally finished. The song has already been played on several radiostations and we're very proud to present it here, on our own website. Please share the video on Youtube, Facebook and Twitter as much as possible. Credits are below the video on Youtube.

Are you ready to rock?!
As you all know we've had a busy summer, recording our ballad 'Carry on' with the amazing Koen Crucke and recording a video for "The Pussy Song". The official release for 'Carry on' will be postponed a couple of weeks, due to a series of operations Crucke had to endure and some last minute changes to the music video for this song. We are happy to inform you, a couple of radiostations have discovered our music and are planning to play our songs on their shows. So thanks in advance to CNEU-radio (Massachussets, USA), Studio Brussel (Belgium) and a couple more we can't name yet. Also, we are getting ready to announce another fun and exciting collaboration... Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and you'll always be one of the first people to know.

We swear! No animals were harmed during the making of this video. And yes, yes. We know you all had to wait for a long time to see a new video. We've been working hard, though. And the results of all this hard work are coming your way in the next few months. This particular song is about cats, because we sure do love animals, here at the Pony-stable. So check out our video for "The Pussy Song" and stay tuned for more Shagging Ponies fun, motherfucker!!
May 7, 2014
Actor, writer and most importantly, opera-singer Koen Crucke has been added to the Pony-stable for a while. Crucke has announced a collaboration between himself and Dutch hardrockband Shagging Ponies, last Wednesday on the most rockin' radio-station in the BeNeLux; Studio Brussel. The Belgian singer will be singing together with Ponies-frontman Lou DeScorpio in a totally new and exciting OPEROCK-song. Can't wait to hear it? Good! Because we can't wait to play it for you. We'll keep you posted...
April 15, 2014
NO MORE SILENCE!
We've had a couple of months of peace and quiet and we fuckin' hated it! Our giggin' glands are ready to burst and we need sweet release. So if you too need your fix of rock 'n roll, come meet us at Rockcafe Spider in Balk for a refreshing three hour dose of Shagging Ponies! More news on the creative front soon to follow, stay tuned...

After ex-Ponies drummer the Animal was gone there was a great big gap left behind. Several drummers have tried to fill this gap, of which we are very grateful, but none of them succeeded. Until one day Dave received a phonecall from an old friend. Dr. Fill, the embodiment of rock 'n roll and ex-drummer of the short-lived hairmetal sensation Pink Panda, was ready for a two-and-a-half hour drive, just to show the Ponies how good he was. And he is! Needless to say, the gap was filled by Dr. Fill..

The Animal has left the building
Oh, how we detest bad news. Our brother The Animal is being forced to quit playing the drums due to medical reasons. This news has hit us hard and the need to find a new drummer as capable as Ani weighs heavily upon our shoulders. If there are drummers in the Netherlands or Belgium who think they can rock as hard as Ani, please contact us. We'll make it worth your while, we promise. Please email Dave or Lou if you know someone we don't.

FAREWELL LIES.... WELCOME TRIGGER
Lies Firing, our trusted friend and manager, has retired. We hate to see her go, but we love to watch her leave. Butt seriously... Lies has been a part of Shagging Ponies since the very beginning and we thank her for all she's done. We are happy to announce, though, that we've found new management in the form of Trigger Management & Bookings. So from now on, if you want to book a Ponies-show, leave Lies the fuck alone and contact Trigger through our special BOOKINGS-section. See you soon...

The new pony
No, it wasn't easy, replacing a bandmember like Tracii Sparxxx. A lot of great musicians visited the Shagging Ponies stables, and we're honored they did. But in the end, this motherfucker won. Meet our newest and youngest Pony; Johnny Bronco. Check out his profile under BIO or come meet him live at a sleazy bar near you...
July 5, 2013
Tracii Sparxxx has left the band
We regret to inform all the Shagging Ponies fans that our good friend and guitar player Tracii Sparxxx has left the band due to personal reasons. We will miss him like crazy and wish him the very best. Auditions will be held in the next few weeks, months... Maybe even years. How can we replace a motherfucker like Tracii? Well... We're gonna try. Wanna play rhythm/lead-guitars in the coolest Rock 'n roll band Europe has to offer? Send us an email: Lou@spgr.nl or David@spgr.nl.
April 8, 2013
Now that Shagging Ponies has a new bass-player, it was time to shoot a couple of new pictures to show the world how sexy we are. Check some of them out here. We're happy to inform you that a couple of great new songs are headed your way, as well. Keep following us on Twitter, Facebook and of course our website for details about our music and other news.
December 7, 2012
Bada-bing, bada-boom. Another Italian guy joins the band. Don't worry, he won't go near your daughters and wives..... While you're around, that is. Forget about it! Our new friend Paolo 'The Pussy Magnet' Vagino doesn't even have to look at the girls to get them all fired up. And please don't fuck with him, or you'll be sleepin' with the fishes, see?
November 8, 2012
We will miss him
Unfortunately, the time has come for Rikki Sevven to head back to the States and for Shagging Ponies to look for a new bass-player. Sevven had a fuckin' blast, playing for the Ponies, but homesickness has reared its ugly head. We will miss him and he will definitely miss us. But whenever the God of Rock 'n Roll shuts a fuckin' door, he opens a window somewhere else, or some shit like that. The Ponies will be looking for a new member through open auditions, every thursday-night for the next few weeks. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll give you the address...

"Sleazy Girl Blues"
Bored out of their minds, Dave Gonzo and Lou DeScorpio got together to play some rock 'n roll. Due to the absence of other band-members, the result wasn't very rock 'n roll, but more bluesy. Before they knew it, they had written a cute little song about a piece of shit rich girl. Shagging Ponies will record the song for real, pretty soon. Together with some other new amazing songs like 'The Pussy Song' and 'Shabby Place to Rock', it is expected that 'Sleazy Girl Blues' will be made available to you within months...
Oktober 10, 2012
Happy Birthday, motherfucker
None of the Ponies knew about this before last thursday-night, but apparently The Animal is turning 27 this week. We just couldn't let this pass without a party, so we decided to plug in and rock out next friday, the 12th of Rocktober. Ain't no party like a Shagging Ponies party and the Shagging Ponies party don't stop! None of you assholes is invited though, as his villa on the outskirts of Spijkenisse is currently being remodeled, so it won't fit more than 350 of Ani's closest friends and dirty slits.. We'll tell you how much fun we had as soon as we wake up the next day....
September 30, 2012
Rikki Sevven was bored out of his skull in what he refers to as 'this backwater piece of shit country'. Therefor he decided to take a little time to put his superior North-American mind to work and get his master's degree. He finished his studies in a little less than 9 months, he claims. We don't buy it, though. We did see the diploma, however and can confirm that the arrogant son of a bitch is now: Master Rikki Sevven. He's still an asshole, by the way...
September 17, 2012
The winner is...!
All-fuckin'-right! We've had to wait for quite a while, but here it is: The NEW Shagging Ponies video 'Flirting Eyes'!!! During the premiere of the video, the crowd went fuckin' wild and directors Raimke and RAOUL Groothuizen actually won a fuckin' award... Check it out, 'cause if you haven't seen it yet, we pity you....
September 6, 2012
In addition to the much appreciated help of mister Richie Dyamondd, we've hired another roadie who goes by the name of Robbi Sevven... Wait, is he...? Yes, he is! Robbi is bassplayer Rikki Sevven's brother. His appearance may be quite similar to that of his sibling, his character differs enormously. While Rikki is an arrogant and annoying son of a bitch, Robbi is a warm and social person... The hot bitches prefer Rikki though, but that might be the result of their own psychological issues...
August 29, 2012
Due to an unfortunate accident with his motorcycle, our drummer The Animal is suffering from an ankle-injury. He will not be able to fuckin' rock for a couple of weeks, but according to his personal physician he will be fine by the time we will play our next show. So don't worry, you dirty sluts, Ani will be alive and kickin' on the 22nd of September when we kick ass at Bikercaf The Other Place in Rotterdam...
June 25, 2012
A wonderful addition
Sick of all the drama we seem to ensue by criticizing anybody not in the band, we went out to search for the perfect roadie/sound engineer. We didn't have to look hard, let alone for very long. We came across an intense youngster by the name of Richie Dyamndd, who can play the soundboards just like ringin' a bell. Undisturbed by criticism or the profound profanity we choose to throw his way, this guy is a real rockstar and a wonderful addition to Shagging Ponies. Don't let his age fool you. He knows what he's doing.

Teaser 'Flirting Eyes'
Created by RAOUL & Raimke Groothuizen, the 'Flirting Eyes' video is sure to blow anyone's mind! If you're anything like us and can't wait for it to finish, check out the hot little teaser they made... Stay tuned to Shagging Ponies FM for the real thing, coming real soon, motherfuckers!!! http://youtu.be/YZUiczePnv0

Our first show abroad
We're on our way to fuckin' Germany to play a show for one of our favorite kinds of crowds: Bikers... We're very excited about our first show abroad and hope there will be many more. Don't worry, we'll hurry back and we'll see you when we play the next Dutch show. Just check out our SHOWS-section to find out where we'll be playing next. Especially if you haven't heard the new songs yet...
April 27, 2012
We've had a busy week, recording our first official music-video. The result is gonna be fuckin' awesome, if we do say so ourselves. You'll have to wait a while to see it, though, because the director and her crew aren't done editing yet. Shagging Ponies would like to thank Cynthia, Raimke, Raoul, Vicky, Gabriela, Melissa, Bernardo, Nina, Hetwig, Loes, Laura, Chemene, Vincent, Ton and his lovely wife, Rob, Neno, Anja, Stefanie and of course the two monkeys for participating and making our jobs of rockin' and shockin' a whole lot easier. We fuckin' love you guys!!
March 24, 2012
Do you know what time it is? It's rock 'n roll-o-clock!! Shagging Ponies will be flaming on stage, once again. This time it will be at Café Havana in Sliedrecht, the place to be on March 30th 2012. The weather is getting hotter, the girls are showing more skin and the Ponies are sexier than ever. Don't miss this chance to see them while they're still modest and approachable. Before you know it arrogance will kick in and they'll be too expensive to see, touch, hear and taste. Come and get your rock on.... Bring your sister....
February 29, 2012
Come on let's go, it's a rock 'n roll show!!!
Holy shit... Just when you thought they'd done it all, the Shagging Ponies ask you to write something for their news-page about the upcoming gig. On March the eighth, next Thursday, the Ponies will be rockin' a town with an unpronounceable name; Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht. I can't imagine anybody wanting to live there, let alone visit a rock 'n roll-show, no matter how awesome the band is. On the other hand, seeing both Free Sample and Shagging Ponies perform live, without paying any admission but with cheap booze... That has to be a reason to drive up to Dock-03 in that wretched town, Hendrip Ino... Wait... What was it called again? Aw, screw it, let them figure it out themselves...
February 19, 2012
Our show in Wormerveer was a big succes. We had a lot of fun with an awesome audience and we've made some new friends, to boot! Shining new glamrock-band 'Permission to Land' is a delight for ears and eyes alike. So you can count on seeing them again at a Shagging Ponies-show near you. It must be good for classic rockers 'Free Sample' to get a couple of nights off for a change... Not that we've forgotten about them. 'Free Sample' will be opening for us at Dock 03 in Hendrik Ido Ambacht. Check the SHOWS-section for more info on this very exciting gig.
February 15, 2012
In preparation of the gig in Wormerveer (Noord-Holland), the Ponies will make an appearance at RTV Papendrecht, which is nowhere near Wormerveer. A couple of band-members will reply to the clever questions of a radio-discjockey with stupid answers. So make sure you tune in to www.rtvpapendrecht.nl next Wednesday (February 15th) between 23.00 and 0.00 and listen to your favourite Dutch rockstars at "Malternative", with Mario van Aalst. You can probably find the station on your FM-radio, but you'd have to be close to Papendrecht. Not Wormerveer.... Just saying.
January 10, 2012
Happy New Year!
Shagging Ponies kicked off the new year with a 3 hour show at MC De Fles in Spijkenisse. Both The Animal and Rikki Sevven have proven their worth during the gig and the Ponies are ready for 2012. A full agenda awaits them, including some exciting gigs in the Netherlands and Germany. Also, the long awaited music-video's for "Flirting Eyes" and "Meat Seekin' Missile" will be completed this year. The winner of the Air guitar championship 2011, Jaila Schriek, will be featured in at least one of these video's.
December 1, 2011
We are proud to present bass-player Rikki Sevven and drummer The Animal as our new members. As you may well know, we had to replace some of our former members, due to some unforseen incidents. Both Rikki and The Animal are psyched to meet you at one of our shows. Read more about these two motherfuckers and the other bandmembers in our new and improved BIO-section.
December 1, 2011
Trying to keep up with modern times, we present you with our new website. Created and hosted by the same guy who was responsible for the old one, this website is even better and sexier, mostly because this time, we actually paid his lazy ass. Please stop licking your screen and start reading up on all of our awesome adventures.
November 26, 2011
Sick and tired of answering the same questions over and over again, we decided to post some personal information about each bandmember on this website. You can read about Tracii Sparxxx' favourite food and Dave Gonzo's favourite book in our BIO-section. If you think you have an original question for us, please email it to this address: email@example.com. We never check that one.
November 15, 2011
Our fight with Dutch Heavy Metal band Roadkill is over. Roadkill-drummer Gary Verweij and Ponies-singer Lou DeScorpio decided to make up and forget about all that has come to pass between them. DeScorpio sees a bright future for rock 'n roll now that the two greatest contemporary bands in the Netherlands have set aside their differences and are once again conspiring to bring pop-music to its knees.
