THE COATHANGERS – High Voltage Punk Party Delirium In Belgium…

THE COATHANGERS – Trefpunt, Ghent, Belgium – 24 May 2017

My hometown Ghent (Belgium) is a paradise for national and international alternative music. Yearly you can attend countless small festivals giving a podium to all genres of enthralling non-mainstream music. Fabtastic! Yesterday another new event was organized for the very first time. PSYCH OVER 9000 (9000 : postal code of Ghent) presented ten – you already guessed it – psychedelia fueled bands from different continents. It was a really hot (temperature) night with several hot (performances) acts! And the hottest of them all… THE COATHANGERS. A flaming and experienced garage punk rock turbo out of Atlanta, Georgia. After five albums and a million gigs they know perfectly how to start and end a delirious party. You bet! 1-2-3-4! Yes, at times I had hallucinations about the Ramones.
The fervent ladies turned red-hot from the first nasty riff on and never looked back,
except when they swapped instruments in the steamy finale. This is what memorable shows are all about. Sultry, fervid and non-stop energy! When you play this clip at max volume you’ll get an idea of what I try to stutter here…
