“FUCK TRUMP! FUCK BORIS JOHNSON! FUCK BREXIT! LET’S ROCK MOTHERFUCKERS”.
That was the way ANDY CAIRNS, flamboyant frontman of Irish veteran rockers THERAPY? opened their smashing set at Lokerse Feesten Festival in Belgium last Saturday. What
a red-hot-blooded concert it was! Here are some pics…

Noise Turbo IT IT ANITA Did What They Do Best At DOUR FESTIVAL In Belgium…

IT IT ANITA – DOUR Festival Belgium – 14 July 2019

Belgium’s premier noiseniks IT IT ANITA did what they do best again yesterday at Dour Festival in Belgium: causing a deafening whirlwind of mindboggling noise on repeat, firing up the whole crowd with their immensely passionate electricity while messing up
the euphoric spectators’ minds the way they like it, breaking down the drums and building it up somewhere in the middle of the marquee for an astonishing intermezzo, leaving tons of sweat on the floor and remembering us all that they made one of last year’s albums with their aceĀ LAURENT LP. Hail hail IIAA!

Every picture tells a story…


Psychedelic turmoil


Earsplitting passion


Explosive electricity


Sweaty thunder


Primal screams


Hail hail

FAT WHITE FAMILY Bombed DOUR FESTIVAL In BELGIUM

FAT WHITE FAMILY – Dour festival Belgium – Sunday 14 July 2019

Dedicated followers know that Turn Up The Volume has his eye and ears on wayward motherrockers FAT WHITE FAMILY from their early days on. So far this gang made 3 albums, 2 half great ones and one near-brilliant (their newest: Serfs Up!) and blew my hungry mind every time I saw them take a stage. Yesterday night at Dour festival in Belgium it happened once more again despite the fact that Saul Adamczewski and his astonishing live guitar psych play was nowhere to be seen or heard. He was replaced (partially) by a sultry saxophone player. Guess what? It worked damn well. Hell yeah!

Needless to say that hyperkinetic frontman Lias Saudi led the trippy troops again with a red-hot-blooded intensity and a raging persuasiveness. One day his head will explode on the podium. He’s the madman in the middle every single second. Yes, Lias, we know you wanna be the best. You know, you’re actually the best fucking ringleader on the planet right now of the only band that matters right now and that ended a steamy performance with the terrifically frenetic closer ‘Bomb Disneyland‘ leaving an ecstatic crowd behind begging for more. I’m still bloody tired after a long day/night writing this stuff this very moment so I’ll leave you with some visual impressions of the Fat Whites Bombing Dour
