Big Bayou Bandits, Kid’s place, Antwerp 08/10/2006.
While the media circus was happening at the town hall, we enjoyed a gig from the Big Bayou Bandits.
Excellent performance. Guy on guitar, steel, banjo, Cockie on Upright and Yves on accordion, drums.
Not much of a turn up, probably cause the elections.
But any way what followed was a great gig with Cajun and r’n’r music.
On their playlist: “ Bayou pon pon”, “ Ouvre cette porte”, “ Promised land”, “ Hot dog”, “ Tennessee border”, “ One step a chaumant”, “ Choupique two-step”, “ Glad all over”, “ Don’t come knockin”, “ Allons a lafayette”, “ 73 special”, “ Rocket trip”, “ Hello baby”, “ High point two-step”, “ The back door”, “  ... continue reading

New Killer CD: "Last Man Standing
New Killer CD:
"Last Man Standing
Jerry Lee Lewis is the last man standing from his generation of rockers, and no one could have expected that.
His hardheaded life of self-destructive recklessness - filled with drugs, booze and broken marriages - wasn't exactly the formula for a long career, but "The Killer" is still rocking.
Just shy of his 71st birthday, Lewis is releasing his first studio album in more than a decade. Its title? "Last Man Standing." "I just felt like I was ready to do it again," Lewis said with a smile.
As a pioneer rock 'n' roller for Sam Phillips' Sun Records, Lewis was a member of the so-called "Million  ... continue reading

Rootsnight, Hof Ter Loo, 23/09/2006
Well on time we got at “Hof Ter Loo” for the Rootsnight. Despite the high entrance fee, there was a load of people there. The first band we saw were The Whoreshoes. This band should have played a while back at the Bromfiets in Bonheiden. At the last moment it was cancelled, but Erwin Bocklandt informed us that this was a band to see, en he sure was right. These 5 pretty ladies from The USA, play rootsmusic like it should be played, on banjo, washboard, ukelele, banjo, guitar, violin, doghouse. They played songs like: “Nancy Whiskey”, “Asheville”, “Cigarettes & Whisky” en loads more. After their first set, it was possible to buy their cd and have  ... continue reading

Al Casey R.I.P
Alvin Wayne Casey, guitarist, passed away at 8:40 AM this day
Sunday September 17, 2006
He has gone on to the great forever.
So long to a great friend.
He was most noted for the records he made with producer Lee
Hazlewood, with artists like Duane Eddy and Sanford Clark. He also
has made numerous records on his own, reaching his commercial peak in
the early 1960s, when a few of his instrumental (or mostly
instrumental) surf and R&B-rock singles made the Top Hundred. In the
1960s and 1970s he worked often as a session player in Los Angeles,
and was still putting out records under his own name in  ... continue reading
