Rockin around turnhout 12 april 2009
Last Sunday night it was time again to head on down to Turnhout for another edition of the world famous Pub crawl. We arrived there round 8.20 and after finding a place to park we headed towards the marketplace. Before arriving there we heard a familiar sound coming from a small pub, we headed inside and found the Hillbilly Stringpickers on stage, after paying the entrance fee and receiving a free beer, we enjoyed the rest of the first set, on a sandy floor, guess they thought it was a beach party. We continued our route towards the marketplace and tried to find La Candela, but the map was a bit wrong. So instead we walked into the Revue. On ... continue reading

The Mighty Quiffs, De Gilde Oostkamp 29/03/2009
The guys from Billybop in Bruges organized another rockin Sunday. The Mighty Quiffs were invited this time and they made sure it was rockin. Well it maybe the last time the Sundays were organized so it was one hell of a closure. Hopefully the Sundays will continue in the future.
Now back to the Quiffs ( in English slang that is, not the American version), they pretended it was night time by the time they played, cause they sure aren’t used of it still being light outside.
Once again the line up from the band has changed on bass this time, Lenn Dauphin, the only FF present in Oostkamp, autographs were available after the gig. And let’s ... continue reading

BRN #19 - met (o.a.): Wayne 'the train' HANCOCK!!
Goede mensen allemaal,
Ge gelooft soms uw eigen oren niet, het is waar…
Het is sinds Nieuwjaar onmenselijk hard ‘trekken’ geweest; er zijn paarden voor
EN achter karren moeten gespannen worden, ballen aan het rollen gebracht, bergen van
molshopen gemaakt, olifanten door porseleinwinkels gejaagd, heel wat kinderen met
het badwater weggespoeld, en tal van nagels met koppen geslagen (u moest de putjes
in ons voorhoofd eens zien…)- MAAR: ‘hij’ is er. Of beter: ‘hij’ komt…
U mag beginnen forwarden & bloggen & Facebooken & Myspacen tot het niet meer schoon
te noemen is (al wat u nodig hebt staat ... continue reading

Johnny Trash @ De Joker Antwerp 20/03/2009
The second part of Johnny Trash’s acoustical gig. The first one at Bar Mondial I missed, so luckily he did a second one. I spoke to Koen and he told me that this gig wad a bit different then the first one. The first one was mostly songs by Johnny Cash. This one would be songs that he likes and always wanted to do on stage.
It was the first time I was at De Joker and I was surprised at how small this place is. The stage was one of the smallest I’ve ever seen. Just enough place for the 3 musicians to stand on, well 2 we’re seated.
The songs had a lot of variation in them, even a few dutch songs passed the revue.
Just to name a few of ... continue reading

The Copycat Controversy : Patrick Ouchène responds to Mark Sprex' observations
- About the song "Copycat" : you have to understand that it's about a guy who never
heard of Elvis and finds out that there is a guy in the usa who wears the same
clothes etc. It's just a song, nothing wrong with it, it's "second degré".
- About the guys from the Elvis fan club : in my opinion they are near to the point
of being extremist, as the look of the project and even the cartoon figure (famous
in Belgium and France) wear the Elvis look. I was the first one to be surprised
when I heard that the Elvis fan club was shocked, but in my opinion the clowns
who wear the jump suits and wigs ... continue reading
