One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – Believe The WET LEG Hype (I Know, I Saw Them)

Last May British mega hype WET LEG from the Isle of Wight confirmed their
press-given status of new guitar-pop queens with their self-titled debut LP.

A sparkling collection of sickly addictive tunes with witty, absurd, and hilarious stories.

Yesterday night I saw them play live for the first time. It happened at the (always) fantastic 4-day Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium. What a sweaty-stimulating-spirited- sensational show it was. With the volume way up (compared to the album’s sweet sound) the packed-as-sardines tent went berserk.

The two wet legs, Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, just like the word-by-word singing/swinging along crowd, couldn’t care less about the sauna temperature. It was
pure rhapsody. Man, oh, man life can be so over-the-top-fun at times. And that’s what
we ALL felt last night., over the top.

Their performance of their super striking stroke Chaise Lounge at this year’s Glastonbury festival will give you and idea about what thousands and I experienced yesterday night.

Excuse me, what?
Excuse me, what?
Excuse me, what?

One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – Today: KINGS OF LEON

11 August 2022

Two days ago I saw the American desperadoes of KINGS OF LEON playing live again since their early days when they produced 4 rad rock albums (between 2003 and 2008), followed by 4 big-market-aimed albums (although some ace singles on it) between 2010 and 2021.

They performed at Lokerse Fest in Belgium. And? Their light show was
better than the choice of the setlist with too many songs, for my liking,
from the last 4 albums.

Here’s one of my favored KOL crackers… they didn’t play.

One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – Today: IBIZA Singing WONDERWALL For NOEL GALLAGHER

Daily live fireworks to entertain or annoy your neighborhood during summer

Surprise!

Noel‘s having a meal with the family on the beach of his favorite holiday
place (well he has a villa up there for years now) feeling a bit sheepish when
the other restaurant visitors sing Wonderwall for him.

Now it’s your turn, Noel

One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – Today: The Night FAT WHITE FAMILY Went Berserk On American TV

Daily live fireworks to entertain or annoy your neighborhood during summer

The a.w.e.s.o.m.e FAT WHITE FAMILY were the best band in the world between 2011 and 2019, off and on stage as I experienced myself several times. These are the mavericks who turned chaos on a podium into an art form. The team’s prima don Lias Kaci Saoudi is without a shadow of a doubt the best live frontman I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen tons of them.

Both diabolic and blustering, always – I repeat, always – singing/screaming his brains out.

One day in August 2017 FWF went on TV in the Divided States of America on the legendary Late Show wIth David Letterman. As Letterman said, in the end with a big smile on his face, ‘You don’t see that every night. I still wonder how they got past the show’s security with their sacks filled with dope.

Just watch this, ladies and gents, and you’ll understand why I want this gang back with a new album and an extensive tour (preferably with the other key member Saul Adamczewsk also on the bus) and become the best band in the world again, before Harry Styles spreads a new virus, fabricated by Bill Gates, of course, to hypnotize this planet’s population and forcing them all to buy his shitty records.

Fucktatsic performance!

One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – Today: SHARON VAN ETTEN Sending 17 Shivers Down Your Spine

When you sing gorgeously, when you sound gorgeously, when you perform live
gorgeously and you look gorgeously, you must be the gorgeous SHARON VAN ETTEN.

She released her supreme, 6th album We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong last May.

But for this daily series I picked this astounding live rendition of SEVENTEEN.
One of the many top tunes on her previous LP Remind Me Tomorrow (2019).

Magical finale.
Shivers down your spine…

One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – Today: The Legendary Gold Lamé Rockers SHA NA NA

25 July 2022

When I was busy zig-zagging on YT this morning I came across clips of these utterly cool, utterly funny, utterly wackos with greasy haircuts (well most of them), who gained fame in NYC from 1969 on as SHA NA NA, with cover versions of 50s hit singles. But it was much more than covering songs.

They were great performance artists who billed themselves as ” from the streets of New York”. They were always dressed for the occasion, sometimes with gold lamé glitter outfits or leather jackets (or both), and weirdo greasy haircuts and ducktails hairdos. They were great harmony singers too and toured the world for years.

Check ’em out, ladies and gents, here on TV in 1973 with their version of a 1957 song called Rama Lama Ding Dong , originally recorded by American doo-wop act The Edsels

This is fab-tastic!

One Live Shot A Day Turns Summer Into A Holiday – KASABIAN On Fire At This Year’s ISLE OF WIGHT Fest

24 July 2022

Two years ago flamboyant frontman Tom Meighan left KASABIAN following personal problems. The announcement came via this statement from the band: “Tom Meighan is stepping down from Kasabian by mutual consent. Tom has struggled with personal issues that have affected his behavior for quite some time, and now wants to concentrate all his energies on getting his life back on track.”

But the Leicester group is back. New album The Alchemist’s Euphoria will see the day
of light on 5th August. The band’s songwriter Serge Pizzorno, who occasionally sang Kasabian songs in the past, is the new vocalist.

To celebrate their return, they already played some big festival
slots with more to come as well as an extensive indoor tour.

They’re on FIRE again as shown at this year’s
edition of the legendary Isle Of Wight.

Jump, jump, jump
