Batmobile was founded in 1983. In 1985 they were signed by the Rockhouse label on which they released their first selftitled (mini) album. This release led to international recognition, making Batmobile the first non-British act to headline international psychobilly festivals, including the London KlubFoot. Their second album (Bambooland) was the first release of their own Count Orlok label.
After 17 years of intensive touring the band took a break from playing live. In 2000 they played their last show on the New York Rumble. In 2003 Batmobile returned on stage and they are touring internationally again ever since.
In 2008 Batmobile celebrated their 25th birthday by recording and releasing a split-album with Peter Pan Speedrock (Eindhoven) named Cross Contamination, and also launching their new website batmobileforever.com

Famous quotes containing the word history:
“The only thing worse than a liar is a liar thats also a hypocrite!
There are only two great currents in the history of mankind: the baseness which makes conservatives and the envy which makes revolutionaries.”
—Edmond De Goncourt (18221896)
“All history attests that man has subjected woman to his will, used her as a means to promote his selfish gratification, to minister to his sensual pleasures, to be instrumental in promoting his comfort; but never has he desired to elevate her to that rank she was created to fill. He has done all he could to debase and enslave her mind; and now he looks triumphantly on the ruin he has wrought, and say, the being he has thus deeply injured is his inferior.”
—Sarah M. Grimke (17921873)
