The Grooviest Punk Disco Gang On The Planet Inflamed AMSTERDAM – Here’s… THE MOOLANDINGZ

THE MOONLANDINGZ – Paradiso, Amsterdam – Wednesday 26 April 2017

Due to heavy traffic – bloody annoyance – it took me 4 hours instead of 2 and a half to drive from my hometown Ghent (Belgium) to the cool capital of The Netherlands. Was
a 45-minute rock gig worth all the aggravation in the car? Damn, it was! It’s quite simple: THE MOONLANDINGZ is the most exciting gang at this very moment on this troubled planet. Their debut album ‘Interplanetary Class Classics‘ is smashing-punk-dance-dope for body and mind. And live these outlaws are one hell of a thunderous groove machine. This freakish collective includes Sheffield’s electronic weirdos The Eccentronic Research Council and Fat White Family‘s possessed frontman Lias Saoudi. If you never heard of these wicked anarchists get their mind–boggling Saturday Night Fever vibe here…

Exhibitionist Lias aka Johnny Rocket – whether he likes it or not (I bet he does) – is the unquestionable star. Not a preaching Bono or Alex Fake Turner kind of star. No, he’s for REAL. He became an outsider not by choice but because of the way narcissistic monkeys rule this damaged world. He’s intelligent, politically outspoken and his anger & frustration turned him into a provocative songwriter and demonic performer on stage (I saw him going bonkers, four times, with the mental The Fat White Family before). I’m sure one day he’ll scream his brains out… literally. This live footage from a London show will give you a blazing idea of his exorcistic and intoxicating presence when he hits the podium. Release the bats…

Lias about rock and roll: “You don’t need anything to do it. It’s an art form which is a truly democratic medium. In its own way. The tone is ridiculous and yet serious, and I enjoy that it’s all over in 2/3 minutes. It doesn’t demand much. So for me, you can be more free than in rock than in anything else.”

I guess you know by now why I suffered for hours in my car. I wanted to see, hear and experience the Grooviest Disco Punk Gang Of The Moment and I returned at night, with a
big grin on my face and loaded batteries, back home at full speed (in 2 hours, no traffic) with Interplanetary Class Classics on my stereo…

Earthquake in AMSTERDAM – Here’s One Of The Maddest Live Bands On The Planet… COCAINE PISS

liveblglo

Yesterday (Friday 30 December) I decided last minute to drive to Amsterdam (2 1/2 drive)
to see COCAINE PISS (again). One of this year’s most spectacular and maddest live bands. They played there as part of a mini indoor festival in the legendary Paradiso venue and I returned early this morning, after four hours of sleep, to attend a family lunch back home in Belgium. Like my wife always says: ‘you feel nervous when things go normal‘. It was another mind-boggling experience but I’m actually too tired to write a decent review and I need to join a New Year’s Eve diner in a couple of hours. But for you out there who never heard of this earthshaking four-piece you can check my review of their far-out performance in Brussels earlier this month here.  And with this clip you surely will get an idea of their smashing thunder…

But before leaving you, and the year 2016, here are some of my pics of yesterday’s explosion in the small upper hall of Paradiso with frontwoman Aurélie Poppins doing
what she does best… going totally mental! Hell Bloody Hell! Yeah..
