Sludge (Club) Moral
Les ateliers Claus, Brussel, 26 Mar 2010

Since 1981 Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven and Danny Devos have been performing with Club Moral. It had been a while, but in March we got the chance to see them again. It seems that the band has changed a bit. Aldo Struyf (Millionaire/Creature with the atom brain) has been added as a bass player and Mauro Pawlowski has changed from playing guitar to playing drums. Anne-Mie stil plays electronics and of course Danny takes the vocal parts. I have added 'Hail to thee black prince' and 'Eating limbs', so check it out.

Popcorn Night(mare)
Scheldapen, Antwerpen, 13 Mar 2010

Dennis Tyfus' Ultra Eczema has this concept going on where they organize a night with the central theme being a song that a zillion of artists have covered. For example last year there was a La Bamba Night(mare). All the artists and DJ's performing that night had to play versions of La Bamba. This being a huge success, they decided to do it again this year with the song being Gershon Kingsleys classic 'Popcorn'. The place was again filled to the brim and we saw a range of insane, but nevertheless recognizable versions of the song passing by. We witnessed performances by DAAU, Circus Bulderdrang, Steven Tuffin and Michiel Van Cleuvenbergen, a bunch of horseheaded people on typewriters, Possessed Factory and a whole bunch of others.
