Another gig in the ace café on a Sunday night of course. On stage this time Lawen Stark & The Slideboppers. This Belgian band has proven itself already, although they haven’t been around for that long, but if you see the line up, it all becomes clear: Lawen Stark, the man that needs to get some knee protection, on rhythm guitar and vocals, a true performer, boppin and fallin down on stage. Yung Han on double bass, doing a great job slappin that awesome instrument. Mario Mattuci on lead guitar, playing some very cool licks, long time member of the Bebops and his own band Charlie Roy and his Black mountain boys.

FLICK
Billy Bop proudly presents "Flick" a "David Howard" pictures (2008).
"Flick" is best discribed as a bloodcurdling homage to the cult cinema of the fifties. An old-school killer zombie and classic fifties cinematography in a modern perspective makes this pictures a real trill for every cult-lover.
This movie not only has a killer zombie on the loose, but also a killer soundtrack. Rock 'n' Roll and Rockabilly music plays thoughout the story the key role. If you want to find out how, just come and see the this picture at "Razorreel fantastic film festival 2008" in Bruges.

The movie is scheduled on friday October 31, at 18.00 h.  ... continue reading

HEMSBY 41 REPORT - by Mark sprex
So here we went again, 20 years in existence now and for me still the best weekend festival for a number of reasons but mainly because Hemsby offers a range of music varieties for all tastes from authentic rock n roll and rockabilly, through to swing and rythym and blues, and even daring to venture into neo rockabilly and psychobilly.

OK the festival is much smaller now than it used to be, but this hasn't changed the fact that it has remained the king of rock n roll festivals for so many years now and for many more to come I have no doubt.

Mrs Sprex and I left home at 5am on Friday morning to catch an early boat from Calais,  ... continue reading

£24,000 FOR 'ELVIS'
A ROMAN marble head that looks like Elvis – right down to the quiff – was sold for £24,000 at auction yesterday.

The 13-inch carving, which came from a 2nd century AD sarcophagus, was bought by an unnamed collector at a Bonhams sale in London.

Antiquities specialist Georgiana Aitken said: “It bears an uncanny likeness to Elvis. It’s the quiff that does it. It wasn’t a hairstyle of the day as far as I know

Are you Roman tonight? Statue of 'Elvis' chiselled 1800 years before his birth goes under the hammer
With his dashing chiselled features, swept back hair and perky bouffant the resemblance is unmistakable.
But incredibly this carving of Elvis Presley was created around 1800 years before the King of Rock and Roll first warbled his first note.
The amazing likeness has come to light as part of a sale of ancient antiques by the auction house Bonhams.

The Roman Elvis is in fact a genuine marble acroterion - a kind of architectural ornament often found for decoration on the corners of a sarcophagus, a stone tomb or burial chamber.
The real thing: Elvis in concert in 1968
It forms part of a collection owned by Melbourne-based  ... continue reading
