2. No arty-farty shit, only kick-ass grooves & rollicking firework
3. They pump up your bloodstream when they hit the stage
3. With ‘Ghost’ they made one of the best albums of 2017
5. With ‘Candy’ they scored one of the best singles of 2019

FALLING MAN – De Casino, Sint-Niklaas, Belgium – 9 October 2019

The band that never disappoints
The band that never lets you down

And always delivers the spicy goods
As long as there’s candy to ease the pain…

This past month’s best…

Quote - kopie (2)

Eleven Knockout Tracks on repeat this past month!
A tasty cocktail of rollicking rippers and first-rate cuts.
Here’s Turn Up The Volume‘s Knockout April Team!

.
1. ‘Blah Blah Blah’ by MEMES (Glasgow, Scotland)
The spirit of The Fall’s debut EP Bingo-Master’s Break-Out!. Ramshackle racket!…

2. ‘Covered In Filth’ by THE MEDICINE DOLLS (Capetown, South Africa)
Raw rollicking rockabilly riffs with waggish bubblegum ooh-la-la’s. Filthy score!

3. ‘Don’t’ by MILLIONAIRE (Belgium)
An ominous funky smack fueled by a mighty disco stomp. Hell yeah!…

4. ‘Candy’ by FALLING MAN (Belgium)
An enigmatic painkiller for spooky midnight hours. It will keep you sane. Maybe…

5. ‘Stay Where You Stand’ by THE RINGARDS (London, UK)
Jangly guitars, ace pace, poppy synths and a scream/sing/hum along chorus. Top!

6. ‘The Way In’ by THE DREAM SYNDICATE (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Electrifying psych piece from the band’s new upcoming album ‘These Times

7. ‘Hey’ Gyp (Dig The Slowness) by THE RACONTEURS (US)
Jack White & buddies back with gloriously messy Donovan cover…

8. ‘6.30‘ by SUPER PARADISE (London,UK)
When blitzkrieg guitars, echoing vocals and flashy synths meet. A bang-up roller coaster!

9. ‘Who’s Been Having You Over’ by PETER DOHERTY & THE PUTA MADRES (UK)
Snappy garage stomper with sharp-edged guitar licks and Doherty‘s characteristic vox…

10. ‘Prozac Spaceman’ by FAUX CO. (Chicago, US)
This delightful humdinger will dance in your head for some time after one spin…

11. ‘Parabole’ by TURQUOISE (Bruxelles, Belgique)
Sensuous French vocals, glimmering guitars and New Order‘s blue dynamics. Magnifique!…

Belgian Rockers FALLING MAN Groove Till You Move…

FALLING MAN – Charlatan, Ghent, Belgium – 12 April 2019

Turn Up The Volume featured Belgian turbine FALLING MAN many times before because this rock machine knows the kick-ass art of turning a shaking cocktail of spellbinding riffs, bad-tempered licks, hammering drums and a haunting vox into memorable crackers, on record and on stage. And they do it with a heated heart and a stirring soul because THEY CARE ABOUT THEIR SHIT! Which can’t be said of many label controlled fakers out there.

Yesterday the flamboyant combo hit their and my hometown of Ghent to celebrate the release of their brand new 4-track EP, entitled CANDY. Another striking piece of messed-up crackerjacks. The record kicks off with the awesome title track – a painkiller that works instantly – followed by the manic anxiety of PANIC ATTACK NO. 22, then a raging ANGRY KID hits you hard in the face before the band closes with B&D, a sort of ‘I’m you, you are me‘ identity crisis that gets under your skin without asking permission.

Live up there, on the podium, these new killers sounded even more obstreperous, more stocky and more burly than on vinyl. Oh yeah, their sonic nightmares get an extra injection of adrenalin when performed live. That’s what great bands do. They gave you the best of both worlds. Conclusion: FALLING MAN, is one of those rare acts that never disappoints because basically, this is what these motherrockers do ALL the time…

They groove till you move
They rock till you shock
They roll till you toll
They sneer till you cheer
They spit till you split
They trash till you splash
They spree till you candy…
