Zaterdagavond, 28 mei, nog geen plannen? En zin in een avond onvervalste rock ’n roll? Dan kan je bij Signaal/Ruis nog meedingen voor enkele vrijkaarten voor de show van Bleached, Dead High Wire en MOAR in Het Bos in Antwerpen. Luisteren maar, vrijdag 27/05, 8pm op Radio Scorpio.
Los Angeles-based sister duo Jennifer and Jessie Clavin knew things were going to be different for their band Bleached sophomore LP ‘Welcome The Worms’. Not only had they managed to charm world renowned producer Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, The Strokes, Elton John) to join the sisters and their bassist Micayla Grace in the studio, but Jen and Jessie had been crawling out of their own personal dramas.
While emotionally spinning, they dove head first into music. The three girls spent time writing the 10 song LP at a remote house in Joshua Tree, away from the distractions of the city. Other times Jen and Jessie worked alone, just like when they were teenaged punk brats playing in their parents’ garage, imitating their heroes The Slits, Black Flag and Minor Threat. They drew inspiration from the iconic hits of everyone from Fleetwood Mac to Heart to Roy Ayers. The result is an ambitious rock record with a new found pop refinement that somehow still feels like the Shangri-Las on speed, driven forward in a wind of pot and petals, a wall of guitars in the back seat.
DEAD HIGH WIRE
Antwerp garage trio playing twangy postpunk songs. Gloomy but uplifting. Fun but no fun. No pun/fun intended :b
“Fluitjes punk” featuring three self claimed mongoloids. Y’all might know two of them from previous duties in The Jagged Frequency. Debut album “I Wanna Horse” out now!
