Happy 50 To Classic Singer/Songwriter NOEL GALLAGHER…

29 May 2017

NOEL Thomas David GALLAGHER was born in Longsight, Manchester on 29 May 1967.
Fifty years ago, just 3 days before his all time favorite band THE BEATLES released their masterpiece album SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Being born so close
to that magical milestone day must be definitely, maybe one of the reasons why Noel
was, undoubtedly, destined to become a brilliant songwriter, to become a rock & roll
star, to become The Chief of the legendary OASIS and a great solo performer (better
than many expected) after the band split. On top of it he’s a hilarious one-liner expert
and always ready for an amusing, verbal fight with brother Liam. Happy 50 to the man
who gave us a full jukebox of timeless crackers we can sing along on top of our lungs.
Here are three of his unforgettable pearls…

SEX PISTOLS Shocked The United Kingdom 40 Years Ago – But Nothing Has Changed Today…

When timeless in sound and vision…

‘God Save The Queen’ by SEX PISTOLS

Forty years ago today – 27 May 1977 – the SEX PISTOLS released controversial single
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. A timeless punk banger that shocked the conservative United Kingdom. I just loved their rage, their controversial attitude, their middle finger for the capitalistic establishment and Johnny Rotten‘s new generation charisma. These outcasts
were just sensational, highly inspiring and made the best punk rock album ever!…

So what’s the status today, 40 years later? Well, after several reunion tours the legendary
four-piece filled their pockets with tons of money. Face & voice John ‘Rotten’ Lydon recently became an American citizen (obviously inspired by Obama he claimed) after living for many years now in a huge mansion in Los Angeles and he stated on several talk-shows (selling another book, again) a couple of months ago that idiot Trump is a ‘possible friend and in
a way a political Sex Pistol
‘ and Brexit (read: old Brittania going back to intolerance, racism and egoism) is a great thing for the UK as that is what the working class wanted and ‘ I’m one of them and I’m with them’‘ waffled the nowadays irrelevant punk has-been. And, oh yeah, the Queen is still in charge. Wow, what a revolution! We’re back at point zero. Over the years punk became a million dollars business and their early figureheads, like the Pistols, became silly comedians and greedy chameleons. Sad, really sad…


The good old days: bloody loud, damn cool and pretty anarchistic…

MILLIONAIRE – Impossible To Resist This Staggering Groove From Their New Album…

‘Little Boy Blue’ by MILLIONAIRE

After 12 years Belgian eccentric singer/songwriter Tim Vanhamel (one-time member of dEUS, Belgium’s best & most notorious band ever) is back with his band MILLIONAIRE
and third album SCIENCING (note: their second, pitch-black & scorching LP Paradisiac
was produced by Queens Of The Stone Age‘s maestro Josh Homme back in 2005). “It’s not
a reunion, it’s a continuation
” says Vanhamel. Anyway here’s my favorite track of the new record. LITTLE BOY BLUE is a mind-boggling, ongoing bass/drums dominated jam that grooves his way, slowly but surely, to an impressive finale. Press the button and join this fascinating trip…

I guess we are in the right mood now
to experience the new album in full…

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…

Live…

THE SHIVAS – Sweaty Garage Rock Ecstasy In Belgium…

THE SHIVAS – Café Afsnis, 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! One of them: the stellar trio THE SHIVAS from Oregon, Portland. After seeing/hearing them going berserk I’m quite sure they are the gloriously noisy grandchildren from garage rock legends THE SONICS . Wow! Their live set was steamy, swinging and smoking from the very first kick. This footage will give you an idea about their intensity and glowing fever…

Don’t’ miss this heated three-piece when they invade your neighbourhood. They are on a holy mission to turn you on. Trust me, they can and they will, they showed it yesterday …
