Turbulent Party Time With Spectacular And Chaotic Cabinet Of Curiosities… SHHT

SHHT – Nest, Ghent (Belgium) – 29 November 2017

They formed exactly one year ago. They only released two smashing good singles so far. They’re definitely one of the best live bands I saw this year (and I saw many, about 150). They’re quite special, they’re deranged, they go bananas on stage, they look and sound
like a chaotic cabinet of curiosities. Imagine Iggy Pop fronting Faith No More messing up Queen‘s monster hit ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ (THESE MADMEN ACTUALLY DID THAT! THEY TRASHED IT TREMENDOUSLY!). They produce a series of striking noise drones as genial freak Frank Zappa would do if he was jamming with Rage Against The Machine . Gloriously clamorous, crazily tumultuous and BLOODY BRILLIANT! The inflammable chaos included surprising acts such as circus artists, a street poet, a masked guest singer, several weirdos with black sunglasses wandering and lying around, someone distributing pins of MAO
(the legendary communist leader of China and yes, the band wrote a funky song about the controversial man), while inflatable dolls hang on top of the podium, all alone. I probably missed some wacko stuff here and there as so many things happened almost non-stop. Never heard of this far-out Belgian gang? Well, let’s start with a short but ‘loud and clear’ live introduction. Here’s SHHT playing at, yes folks, a fashion show…

Pretty wicked, isn’t? Perfect! We need outsiders like this who don’t care about what a band should or shouldn’t do. No boring formats, no corporate nonsense, no old-fashioned rock and roll bullshit. This turbulent collective is here to PARTY HARD! They’re here to entertain us in a most ecstatic way. They gonna be HUGE next year. They will pump up your LIFE

Can’t get enough, here’s their brand new escapade. The one about MAO

.
As Dr.John once drunkenly sung… such a night


Can I have this dance, lady?…


You ain’t seen nothing yet…


Zorro…


Jump, man, jump…
