NO PRESALE, TICKETS AT THE DOOR, CAPACITY 250, CASH ONLY AT VENUE
A new album by obnoxious Frisian underground legends It Dockumer Lokaeltsje. This time they took DAF’s Alles Ist Gutt and gave it a serious Frisian post-punk treatment.
De Garnaaltjes are a new band, set up by trap-punk poets Joost Oomen and Emiel Joormann (aka Willie Darktrousers). Expect drones and poems, fruits and vocoders.
De Garnaaltjes (Utrecht) bestaat uit Daniël Vis (dichter/auteur van de bundels Crowdsurfen op laag water en insect redux/Werkte één stuk lang als columnist voor Elle/solo-gitaar) Joost Oomen (dichter/auteur van Joost Oomen en De zon als hij valt/Reed als driejarige de auto van zijn ouders in de sloot door op de handrem te gaan zitten/drums) en Willie Darktrousers (muzikant en illustrator/auteur van Wortels, Goede Raad is Duur en Glibberburen/Brouwt heksensoep in bossen/slaggitaar). Genre: Nedergarage.
Guillaume Maupin is a Brussels-based singer, guitarist, filmmaker and curator at Cinema Nova. He is known for his project Human Jukebox, and sings with the acapella trio Tartine de Clous. At OCCII he will team up with cigar box guitarist Marceau Portron. Improvisation, short instrumental compositions, riffs, acustic jingles, songs of their own, but also Carter family number, or Prince, without staying far from Captain Beefheart or the Sun City Girls. Their first album together, alongside Valentin Portron is called “Rock’n roll is a folklore vol II” and is a perfect illustration of their attempt to bring back roots and tardition into their post-modern entourage.
It Dockumer Lokaeltsje – album release “Alles Is Goed”
Even before they would become a disruptive force on the Dutch rock
scene, with their albums WIL MET U NEUKEN and MODDERGAT, the still young
members of lt Dockumer Lokaeltsje were admirers of Deutsch Amerikanische
Freundschaft. In 1981 these Düsseldorf-based electro-punks created a
stir with their acclaimed record ALLES IST GUT. In their best known
track Der Mussolini, a massive alternative dance hit, Gabi Delgado-López
en Robert Görl dared to provocatively link totalitarianism with
Christianity. In 1987 lt Dockumer Lokaeltsje recorded a cover version
of Der Räuber Und Der Prinz, the most tantalizing gay ballad ever
written. Now, three decades later, the band have put all 10 vintage
DAF-tracks through the wringer. Lovingly and, of course, in the Frisian
IDoL have created a rural microcosm – populated by reluctant ghost cows,
wanton mummies and rattling skeletons – whereas DAF inhabits a darkly
romantic, metropolitan universe. Bridging that gap – both thematically
and musically – was the main challenge. Many hours were spent holding on
to beats and grooves, in order to blend IDoLs typically short and
capricious song structures with DAF’s radical minimalism.
Songs such as Sato-Sato (whose title remains a mistery, even in
Frisian), De Röver En De Prins en As Wie’t De Lêste Kear don’t stray too
far from DAF’s distinct bass lines and beats. Whereas Der Mussolini
originally bij DAF ran over de dancing crowd like a tank divison, It
Dockumer Lokaeltsje’s steam train drivers have opted for a more rolling
Myn Hert Dat Slacht starts with an intro the band members found lying
around in their rehearsal room, before settling into the compelling
cadence they heard in Mein Herz Macht Burn.
Delgado’s rhythmical singing on lch Und Die Wirklichkeit inspired IDoL
to interpret their version as a tango. Which stays in time for a full
two minutes, before complety collapsing in classic Lokaeltsje style.
Glaube mir. Alles ist gut. || Leau my no mar. Alles is goed || Believe
me. Everything’s fine
Guillaume Maupin & Marceau Portron
Guillaume Maupin uses his singing and guitar skills alone or in bands
(Music for Rabbits, Tartine de Clous), while Marceau Portron is
mesmerizing the audience with his high energy guitar performances in
Potron Portron Lopez or alone with his cigar box.
They combine forces on stage now and then, using folk has mean of
expression, using all the repertoire that comes to their mind without
Improvisation, short instrumental compositions, riffs, acustic jingles,
songs of their own, but also Carter family number, or Prince, without
staying far from Captain Beefheart or the Sun City Girls.
Their first album together, alongside Valentin Portron is called “Rock’n
