▬▬▬ Monday, February, 11th : TWEAK BIRD + MARS RED SKY ▬▬▬
◆ TWEAK BIRD ◆ (US)
The Bird brothers, both born in California, are the proud torchbearers of a very fuzzy flower rock. Imagine that : heavy drums and angry riffs combined to high-toned pop voices. That moment when you realize you’re just headbanging in your room. Songs are short but catchy, and the band’s creativity will definitely seduce even the most reluctant rocker/stonehead. And for God’s sake, they opened for The Melvins in the US this fall ! Check out their latest EP “Undercover Crops”.
◆ MARS RED SKY ◆ (Bx)
Stoner icons “à la bordelaise” are back in town, with a set only made of new songs. Time for the fans to discover the new stuff, the sequel to “Strong Reflection”, “Curse” or even “Marble Sky”, and dream about the desert’s sun and a chilled bbq under moonbeams. This is fuzz in all its greatness, so beware.
▬▬▬ Monday, February, 18th : SUNGRAZER + THE MACHINE + LIBIDO FUZZ ▬▬▬
◆ SUNGRAZER ◆ (NL)
Signed on the same music label as Colour Haze, Dutch band SUNGRAZER is without the shadow of a doubt THE stoner rock revelation of this early decade. Their catchy combination of fuzz whirs, subtle psyche jams and so 70’s pop feeling will turn into a desert storm once on stage. Your soul will be mesmerized and released at the same time, you’ll live a unique live experience : SUNGRAZER is a an absolute must-see for every stoner addict !
◆ THE MACHINE ◆ (NL)
The Machine is a really promising band. And for good reason, they already played the stages at renowned festivals Roadburn and Stoned From The Underground. The Machine bring out more the psychedelic side than their brothers in rock Sungrazer, but they still have so much in common that they will release a split album four days before the show. It’s your chance to get it for a good price at the merch !
◆ LIBIDO FUZZ ◆ (Bx)
Here’s a young band that blends garage energy, the late-60’s spirit of Haight Ashbury and sometimes a little craziness, Eagles Of Death Metal style… Quite the risky bet for a band that hasn’t tread upon the stages a lot yet. But it’ll sure make a good discovery !
