14th Roots Night @ Hof Ter Loo, Antwerp (b) 25 november 2007
The Roots Night keeps surprisin' us with their uncompromisin' & always unexpected line ups. The 14th edition was no different, with 2 local bands doin' good, a reunion of a Belgian psycho band from the 80s, + The BossHoss, world famous in Berlin, Mississippi. Seemed like the unofficial theme tonight was rockabillies & cowboys !
What was new however was that from now on they reinforce the non smokin' policy @ Hof Ter Loo. It was already outlawed some time ago, but nobody paid any attention to it. From now on things are gonna be different, & the security had a full time job tellin' everyone that lit one up to go smoke outside. This is what ... continue reading

Lawen Stark & The Slide Boppers @ Posthuis, Wuustwezel (B) 10 november 2007
A pub crawl with no interesting bands except Lawen Stark & The Slide Boppers gave us a good excuse to spend 3 Lawen Stark sets in Café Posthuis in Wuustwezel, where like 15 years ago we saw Wildfire Willie and 42nd Street. Man, we're getting old :-)
I was looking forward to see Lawen Stark with their new guitar slinger Mario Mattucci of The Be-Bop's, but due to other commitments he couldn't make the gig and had been replaced by Patrick Ouchène, whose crunchy guitar sound suited their white rock style well. As this was a last minute solution they'd only had time to rehearse some 15 songs, so the guitar parts were a bit ad-lib and a lotta songs ... continue reading

DALLAS - Hank Thompson, who mixed honky-tonk and Western swing on such hits as "A Six Pack to Go" and "The Wild Side of Life," has died. The country singer and bandleader was 82.

The First Billybop Roots Sunday was without doubt a success. Cajun Sunday with the Flemish Big Bayou Bandits and the Louisiana Lost Bayou Ramblers became a 5-hour long party filled with a dancing audience, great music and some occasional beers.
The Big Bayou Bandits, who earlier this year where the support act of the Zydoco master CJ Chenier and his band opened the party last Sunday and in no time some people where dancing on their Cajun spiced Rock & Roll. With a musical set ranging from pure Cajun, over Rock and roll to some rockabilly and even a Tex-Mex tune this band certainly know how to throw in a party. Immediately followed ... continue reading

Crazy Cadillac - Hilvarenbeek 4/11/2007
Rock ‘n Roll has a great variation of bands and sounds, and we like to taste them all. So we decided to drive up to “Gouden Carolus” Pub in Hilvarenbeek (NL) to check out the well-known Dutch band “Crazy Cadillac”. The ensemble came on stage dressed in glittering suits and black and white shoes. There were 2 guitarists, a saxophonist, drummer, singer and… 2 Go-Go-girls. The band really captured that Rock ‘n Roll spirit of fun and humor, poured with a sauce of fun and ‘joie de vivre’. A self-assured singer interacts with the crowd in a very direct way, as did the other members of the band. You could see they were enjoying themselves as they really ... continue reading
