Start something, bring it to an end and then...

See what happens! And then? Live with the consequences. Residing in various European cities, music marks the crossroads of the band members’ lives. It’s the nexus holding them together.

Just like the expansion of the universe started some 14 billion years ago, so did Hotel Numero 25. There was this sudden bang in Act 1. 2011 was the year. It was yet another metamorphosis within this ever-changing organism. The evolutionary starting point was 2002, however. Writing “Fresh Trash” was like mankind discovering how to light a fire. “My Parents went to Eldorado an all I got was this lousy Cadillac” saw the boys building their empire. With “The Royal Show” Lord Cambelot called them forth to the Age of Enlightenment.

Is this the end of the line, then? No sense but nonsense? NO! Like our drunk uncle Will always used to say:”If Music be the food of love, play on.” Right on! There are no reservations for Hotel Numero 25. The band wants to create a place which everybody can join by merely bringing his own spirit. The so-called 'shadowy guests' personally create the breeding ground for the show. That’s why the band never knows what’s going to happen at the end of the last reggae song of the night.


Le Quotidien: Souvent étiqueté comme un groupe de ska-punk, un style qui n'est pas connu pour laisser beaucoup de place à l'originalité, le collectif n'a pourtant jamais cessé de se réinventer.

Telecran: Die Ska-Punkband "The Disliked" hat sich in Luxemburg mit ihren drei Alben und ausgelassenen Konzerten bereits seit längerem einen Namen gemacht.

OX-Fanzine: Die harten Parts löst die Band meistens wieder in melodische Songstrecken auf, in denen sich Einflüsse von ANTI-FLAG, frühen MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES, etwas Streetpunk und den BEATSTEAKS erkennen lassen.

Woxx: Die raue Stimme des Sängers verleiht den Songs Authentizität.

Shoot Me Again: On est plus près d'un Rancid ou d'un Lars Frederiksen & The Bastards que d'un No Use For A Name pour le côté punk.

Disagreement: While the debut Fresh Taste (2005) was still rooted deeply in punk, the follow-up My Parents Went To Eldorado… (2008) showed the band from a considerably matured angle, with the ska parts taking over.

Disagreement: When all is said and done, what counts is the band’s unmistakable joy of playing!
