Last Saturday night in a boiling room on stage: The Buckshots and The Slipmates.

Seemed that not many people found there way to the place, maybe cause there was too much going on that day. But by the time the gigs started there must have been about 90 people there.

Our congrats to the DJ’s cause they played some mighty fine rockin tunes.

First on stage: The Buckshots:

As always great, not much more to say really. Although it seemed that about every gig we've seen, the lead guitarist always gets confused between 2 songs.
They played songs like: “Electrified donkey”, “Beware”, “ Hot Rod Lincoln”, “ Tennessee  ... continue reading

Southern & Rocking Music Magazine Magazine
Al true fans of Southern music are already aware of the fact that this spring the magazine returned after a hiatus. I would say as usual the magazine is covering boppin’ bands & music from Canada, the States and the UK. But hey there is no As Usual from now on. As editor Marc Fenech puts it straight. “We are going to put the bands of Luxumbourg, Slovenia & Latvia into the high street shops of London”. That’s right my friends, Southern & Rocking Music Magazine is going to be the place to search for those (unknown) bands from all over Europe and abroad. Japanese bands, the Polish scene, the Belgian groups and many more do get their own place  ... continue reading

Fifty Foot Combo : A long Break or a Definitive End!
12 years of playing together isn’t easy! So Fifty Foot Combo called it a day, yesterday evening!
FFC didn’t stop because of a quarrel or so, but mostly because the band didn’t succeeded anymore in making good new stuff, according to Steven. Immediately he proclaimed that this doesn’t have to be a definitive end. Since each member of the band wants to follow his own side project right now they definitely needed a long break, but the future stays open for reunions!

For the moment the band hasn’t decided yet about a goodbye concert , but it is something that most likely will happen! Probably somewhere around Ghent!
