One Festival Track A Day Turns Summer Into Holiday – dEUS At Pukkelpop Festival Belgium – 2009

Memorable festival flashes from the past to heal this summer’s ‘no festivals’ pain…

‘Theme From Turnpike’ by dEUS at Pukkelpop Fest, Belgium 2009
Released as a single from their 2nd LP In A Bar, Under The Sea (1996)
One of the best live bands ever, I can tell as I saw them about 25 times.

Mind-boggling performance…

And I’m feelin’
so bohemian like you
Yeah, I like you
Yeah, I like you
And I feel, whoa whoo!


One Live Track A Day Keeps The Doctor Away – Here’s PEARL JAM

Last night – 24 June – several Seattle bands like Sleater-Kinney, Ben Gibbard, Brandi Carlile, The Head And The Heart, Macklemore, and Sir Mix-A-Lot played a virtual benefit concert for All In WA to raise money for Washington state’s COVID-19 relief effort.

Headliner was PEARL JAM. From their separate homes the band played DANCE OF THE CLAIRVOYANTS, a compelling highlight from their new album GIGATON. Eddie Vedder’s daughters were backup dancers, and former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer made a surprise appearance.

Here we go…

The New Stooges – Here’s Punk Rock Tornado… AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS

AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS – Croxton, Melbourne – 2019

Unquestionably one of the hottest acts around. Australian tornado AMYL AND THE SINFFERS woke up the dead with their self-titled debut album last year. A smoking
piece of filthy punk snorters. To keep up the heat the rad rockers, led by hyperkinetic frontwoman Amy Taylor – the new Iggy Pop – released a 3-track live EP last month, to show what their scorching gigs are about (as I experienced myself last year in Belgium). Here’s one of the three killers cuts GACKED ON ANGER.

Sweat, swagger, and sizzling steam…

One Life Track A Day Keeps The Doctor Away – THE DISTILLERS Storming At Reading/Leeds Festival…

THE DISTILLERS – Reading Festival, UK – 2019

BRODY DALLE is the utterly cool woman of Queens Of The Stone Age mastermind Josh Homme, but also the utterly pool frontwoman of stoner punk rockers THE DISTILLERS.
So far they issued three albums and toured the world last year with new material. But
we gonna listen to one of the band’s best-known crackerjacks.

From their breakthrough album Coral Fang (2003)
here’s clamorous stunner DRAIN THE BLOOD
performed at Reading/Leeds festival last year…

One Life Track A Day Keeps The Doctor Away – Irish Excorcism With GIRL BAND

GIRL BAND – Utrecht, The Netherlands – 2019

Irish noise generator GIRL BAND is one of those bands you have no idea why they do not dominate our screwed-up world. Their exorcistic and eccentric havoc is just perfect to go totally bonkers to in these unearthly isolation times.

So far they released two flabbergasting longplayers, two freakish hellraisers, two chainsaw mindfuckers. Holding Hands With Jamie (2015) and The Talkies (2019). I’ll give you three, instead of the usual one, bone-chilling tracks performed live in the Netherlands last year. So much cheaper and effective than boring therapy. Here’s Shoulderblades, Going Norway and Paul.

Start play and freeze…

One of the best
LP’s of 2019
