CPeX @ Pukemarock 2008 !!!

YES !! Thank you, Lord !
The legendary and totally ass-kicking Clement Peerens Explosition is performing at the Pukemarock festival in Puurs in September. I am so stoked about them getting together again and touring Belgium !

Several years ago, they ruled the rock scene in Flanders with their combination of no-nonsense, hard rock and humour on stage. The music most reminds me of the equally great AC/DC, but combined with a hilarious sense of humour (the front man, Clement Peerens, is actually Hugo Matthysen, and together with the former drummer, “Vettige” Swa De Bock, or Bart Peeters, they have their own crazy radio show “Het Leugenpaleis”, and a TV version “Het Peulengaleis”).

I remember when I was younger and totally loving their performances with CPeX. I simply thought it was genious! You get to rock out ànd crack yourself up with their jokes. Brilliant.

Are you ready veur den Dikke Lu ?

Daft Punk – Alive 2007 clip

It’s been awfully quiet on my blog, but that’s because I’m extremely busy at work until the end of the year at least. Probably my Flickr photos site is my busiest publication at the moment (not that it’s busy ;)).

Anyhoo, I just had to share this track of the legendary Daft Punk. It’s a mash-up of “Around The World” and “Harder Better Faster Stronger” which they played at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, an 18,000-capacity sports arena in Paris, on June 14th, 2007. They asked the public to bring their digital camera, and tape the concert. The result of the recording is now available as Alive 2007 on double compact disc + dvd.

Here is a YouTube clip with the mash-up. Makes me wanna be there !

Review of Jurassic 5 concert

I went to see the J5 MC’s @ Ancienne Belgique, Brussels, Belgium last Sunday. It was everything I expected it to be: straight, honest hip hop without the posing, blingbling and bitches. The way hip hop is meant to be: making statements and having fun on good music.The really rocked the place, and everyone in the hall was rocking with them. They even interrupted their show, to force one drunk irritating guy out of the building: beautiful ! Most bands wouldn’t even give a damn.

Man, they really have something going on on stage. With the five of them rapping, and Nu Mark spinning the decks, it is really exciting to watch them perform. Not to say it is really hard to stand still to their flow & beats 🙂

Too bad they don’t perform in Belgium very often…

Jurassic 5 performing in Brussels

Today I am a happy man.

When ordering tickets for the concerts of Sergent Garcia (at the AB) and Maceo Parker (at the Blue Note Records Festival – All That Jazz? in Ghent), my eye fell on a simple entry in the list stating that no other than the J5 MC’s were coming to the Ancienne Belgique. Fantastic, of course, especially ’cause I was just recently going on about how they seldom come to Europe, let alone Belgium.

So now they’re finally coming 🙂 Needless to say, I ordered my tickets instantaneously (and at €20, that’s hella-cheap ! The concert of The Roots is €10 more expensive!). Thanks to their new album, no doubt, they will pass through Europe. It’s called Feedback, and together with this newness they also upgraded their web site a bit, which was kindof needed as well 😉 Production of the album is no longer in the capable hands of Cut Chemist – as he is aiming to go solo – but producer/DJ Nu-Mark will take this one on his account. I’m pretty confident it won’t suck. 🙂

Anyway, got some work to do. Enjoy good music !

New Album Sergent Garcia: “Mascaras”

This summer (the 14th of August to be more precise) Sergent Garcia will release a new album called Mascaras. I read somewhere that it will be a tribute to the masked Mexican wrestlers or something like that 🙂
In any case, I’m expecting this album to swing as much as the previous ones. This is probably the best kind of summer music !

They will be performing in the Ancienne Belgique [ abconcerts.be ] the 7th of December. You will find me then and there 😉
