The Defibulators @ Ace Cafe Rumst 01/11/2009
On Sunday it was time for another gig at the Ace Café. The Defibulators from NYC playing a cross over between roots, bluegrass, rockabilly and punk. The band consists of 7 members, two of them only known by their nickname: Roadblock on guitar and Metalbelly on various instruments, ranging from bluesharp to Washboard. A few of the songs I recall: “The Gravy Shake”, an instrumental , and very unusual sound, some sort of surf but with a fiddle complimenting the twangy guitarplaying of Roadblock. “ The songs that I shall not tell it’s name”, it actually is a pop quiz when they play it, a very nice cover of a 80’s song about a man. “ Ol’ Winchester”  ... continue reading

Mark & The Slumdogs @ Ace Cafe Rumst 30/10/2009
A rare occasion at the Ace Cafe. Mr. Mark Pennington was here to perform with his side project: Mark & The Slumdogs. A slight change in the band since the last time i saw them. On bass Mr Hometown Guy, filling in for Mr. Fantomas, who has recently moved to the States. Guy did an awesome job, playing a lot faster then he’s used too. As you might or might not know, this band is advertised as a semi acoustic Trio. What that actually means is the Mark P. is playing on a semi acoustic guitar, but he still manages to get out some very rockin sounds. Behind the skins a familiar face, Mr. Mark Sprex
The band played for about 1 hour and it was just  ... continue reading

Sun Studio NEwsletter
Hello from Memphis!

We just wanted to take a moment to catch up with you about what has
been going on around Sun and also to introduce you to our new website!

John Mellencamp used a couple of off days during his tour with Willie
Nelson and Bob Dylan to come by Sun Studio and record 9 songs for his
upcoming album, entitled “No Better Than This”. John, who was
accompanied by legendary producer T-Bone Burnett, was quoted by writer
Jelisa Castrodale as saying “It was the most fun I’ve ever had making
a record”. We like the sound of that.

Sun Studio has recently been featured on two TV shows,  ... continue reading

Chicago photographer and superfan Jennifer Greenburg spent seven years capturing rockabilly hep cats and kittens for an upcoming book.
When Jennifer Greenburg was four, she loved to imagine herself in the ’50s-era photos decorating her grandparents’ Hyde Park apartment. But it wasn’t until 1999, when the 32-year-old artist was working on her M.F.A. at the University of Chicago, that she discovered not only were there people who shared her passion for 1950s American music and fashion, there was even a name for them: rockabillies. Over the next several years, Greenburg photographed dozens of her rockabilly friends, celebrating their glamorous outfits, carefully furnished period homes and customized vintage cars. We recently met Greenburg near her Rogers Park studio to discuss  ... continue reading

Free’ Hank Williams!
"This petition calls for the reinstatement of Opry legend, and country music star, Hank Williams. Fifty years have passed since the tragic and untimely death of country music’s greatest performer, who made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry on June 11th, 1949. A few years later, in 1952, Hiram Hank Williams was asked to leave the Opry — with the intention that he would sober up and make a return to the stage that he loved so much. Before he could make that return, he passed on, in the back seat of a car on the way to an Ohio show. Hank Williams has yet to be reinstated to the Opry.
We, the undersigned, feel that it is past due for Hank Williams’  ... continue reading

James Intveld & The Bellhops, Aspelt Lux 16/10/09
On a Friday we decided to head on down to Aspelt to see what i now consider as one of the greatest singer songwriters ever. It took us about 4 hours to get there, damn Belgian traffic. But it was defiantly worth the trip.

First band of the night The Bellhops, these guys been around since quite some time now and have been a support band for many of the great names in the music business. Not a big suprise when you hear them play. Very talented musicians, but this sometimes results in too many or too long solo parts. Well I don’t mind a longer solo part, but when it starts to reoccur in 3 over songs, it starts getting a bit too much for  ... continue reading

5 September; Rockabilly day - maffia night.
Sorry, i'm a bit late with the translation. -B-

Nice initiative of the organization of Rockabilly day in Wippelgem. Every day had another theme and that made the weekend a lot of fun. The kick off was on Friday in cooperation with Radio Modern.

That way you get very different kind of audiences and then my exuberance is unstoppable. In our small little r’n’r World there aren’t any opponents just cooperators. We were ther on Saturday the fifth of September, the theme of the night was Mafia. I must admit I’m a bit of a clothes nut and I don’t wane miss any detail. So there I went in a white suit with matching hat and sunglasses  ... continue reading

Oscar is now way up north in Baltimore continuing his engineering education; so on behalf of the Lost Bayou Ramblers, all our fans, and anyone who has ever worked with him, we'd like to extend the largest MERCI possible for all his hard work and dedicated rambling, and wish he and Rose the best in their travails.
