Runnin Wild @ Bar Mondial 24/06/2008
Last night I went to the Bar Mondial in Antwerp for a gig of one of Belgium’s famous rockabilly bands: Runnin Wild. Bar Mondial is located on the Suikerrui, near to the quays. Although the bar seems to be more focused on ska, it’s nice that finally another bar in Antwerp offers some great rockabilly gigs. The bar itself is a nice place, with a terrace, so that always comes in handy when the sun is shinning like it did last night. Plus the other advantage of the bar is that people walking by are intrigued with what’s going on inside and decide to come in for a peak. Ok, that doesn’t mean they stay, but at least they’ve seen what’s going on. So  ... continue reading

The O’Haras @ Cooperville Sunday 22 juni 2008.
With the closure of Tiki’s in Gierle, a place where regularly r’n’r gigs were held and a cool and friendly bartender ( Hans), was a heavy blow to us ( Anne-Mie and myself). Luckily around the same period Cooperville was opened, that kept the tradition going, so we weren’t kept waiting long on some Rock’n’roll. Last Sunday, under a scouring sun, a patio and a surf band were for me the ideal subjoin to make it a beautiful afternoon. I’ve always had a thing for instrumental Rock’n’roll, and surf surely fits. For this occasion I’d even dressed up in a sixties Hawaiian shirt, with a wreath round my neck. Only the Roy Orbison sun glasses where missing,  ... continue reading

Domestic Bumblebees, Harmonica Sam, Boppin' Steve at "the Rambler" Eindhoven (june 15, 2008)
Last sunday I went to see those Swedish guys in Eindhoven.
For € 5 the rather small crowd gets a three group package.
First the Domestic Bumblebees played the songs of their CD Break up bop.
After a short break Harmonica Sam amused the crowd with his songs and everybody sang along with real gone lover.
After another break Boppin' Steve sets the place on fire, with songs like Come what may, Crazy arms, Whole lotta shakin', I'm on fire, Wild one, Great balls of fire .....
Of course the crowd wanted more ...
Go see them if you get the chance, you won't regret it

357 String band @ Ace Café 24 May 2008
Another concert review i almost forgot to write.
The 357 Stringband in the Ace Cafe organized by Tom & Erwin.
Normally this gig would take place in “ Den Bromfiets” in Bonheiden, but due to a cycling event, the gig was moved to the Ace Café. Instead of the sombrero a small entrance fee was asked.
The 357 Stringband is defiantly something to see. 4 Guys that you wouldn’t think are in a band together, joined each other in a band that plays something that would best be described as Bluegrass on speed or as they band likes to call it 'amphetamine-fueled mountain music'. It’s kind of a mix between old-punk, bluegrass, some Irish influences  ... continue reading

SWAMP ROCK PIONEER TONY JOE WHITE CELEBRATES HIS 40-YEAR CAREER JUNE 10TH WITH TECHNO TWIST TO CLASSIC SONGS ON DEEP CUTS; BEGINS 11-DATE SUMMER TOUR MAY 30
“Tony Joe White, he’s the real deal.” -- Stephen Malkmus

NASHVILLE, TN – Tony Joe White, whose 1969 hit “Polk Salad Annie” introduced the world to the funky, country-blues groove known as “swamp rock”, reprises some of his classic songs for modern times with Deep Cuts, out on Swamp Records, June 10.

The record is the 21st release of White’s 40-year career and features some of the songwriter’s most decidedly vivid storytelling in songs which date back to the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. White and his son Jody cut these classic songs utilizing a palette full of beats and loops, samples, digital and live drums, strings and organs.  ... continue reading

23th of May: The Big Four @ Radio Modern
This report was send in sometime ago by JW, but due to a busy schedule, I just got round to translating it, so enjoy.

- Jack -

A little oblivion, to order tickets at “ The Roma” in Borgerhout for a previous Radio Modern Gig, a month ago was ill-fated and we couldn’t enter the Hall back then.
So on the 23th of May at “ The Vooruit” in Ghent was the time to do some damage control. On stage that night: The Big Four. On our arrival we were warmly greeted by” Den Ben”, the life and soul of these events. A hall with character, decorate in a 40’s – 50’s style and everybody dressed up and a make-up room for the ladies. As common  ... continue reading
