Ben Cooper Rockin @ Ace Cafe 06/04/2008
Last night in the ace cafe, a neo rockabilly legend, Ben Cooper, in the 80’s one of the founding members of Restless and one of the major songwriters, he wrote” Vanished without a trace”, most of the bands second album “ Do you feel Restless” and the opening track to the first album: “ It’s a scam”. So I guess that qualifies him as a true neo rockabilly pioneer. Therefore it was a bit of a surprise that the turn out last night wasn’t that big. But never the less that couldn’t stop these guys, Ben Cooper on vocals, Mark Palmer on Double bass and Russel Lax on Drums, from rockin out the place with some very great songs. They played true neo rockabilly  ... continue reading

RIP Glenn Barber
Tom Ingram informs that Glenn Barber died from an apparent heart attack on March
28 while holding his guitar practising for his upcoming Viva Las Vegas show.
Barber was born on February 2 1935 and recorded excellent rockabilly sides like
Ice Water (1954) and Shadow My Baby (1956). In the sixties he became a deejay
and in the seventies he had quite a career as a country singer, charting in
total 21 times. On August 22 2006 he suffered a congestive heart attack and
kidney failure.

Monsters of Rock’n’Roll, a tribute to Hot Rod Luke 30/03/2008, Hof Ter Lo.
We got there in the late afternoon and by then already 2 bands had played, namely the Mud men and Radio Dead Ones, so can’t really say anything about them. The third band was already well into their set so we checked them out asap, this band was called Deadbuster, it was loud and heavy streetpunk, can’t really recall any of their songs, which you’ll find is the case with most of the bands on this afternoon / evening. After this band the stage belonged to some guy, who called himself Ski King. A German Fellow ( i think) who entertained the audience with some soundmix numbers, but no kidding he has a great voice, heard some good tunes, by Johnny  ... continue reading

Rocking around Turnhout.
Adding a few lines to the message of Jack because there were some other fine groups te be seen.
A big crowd joined the local heros the Baboons in "Keizershof" for their well-played set. Of course they played all the songs from their album " Boogie Curse" and songs like John Lee Hooker's "One scotch, one whiskey, one beer" and Bo Diddley's " You can't judge a book by it's cover"
In the "Candela" there was Rockin' Bonnie and the Rot Gut Shots. I've seen two sets of them with songs like Jukebox blues, I wanna make love, Get rhythm, I heard about you,
Little dreamboot, ... The full-packed bar liked it very much.
And in the "Wollewei"  ... continue reading

Rockin around Turnhout 23/03/2008
After the Moonshine Sunday in Oostkamp it was time to drive over to Turnhout for another edition of the bar crawl. Due to this fact we got there around 22h00 and like always most of the bar were packed. The First stop we made was at “ Birstol” a pub located on the centre square. On stage in this pub, Runnin Wild ( a replacement for Slingshot Bikini ). A well know name in the rockin scene, this band needs no further introduction and like always they did what they do so well, namely making the place rock, on stage: Patrick on guitar, Koen on drums, Jack on Bass and Jorge on slide guitar. After they finished their set we made our way to “ De Lamme  ... continue reading
