Within a proverbial blink of an eye, the legendary punk/pop/metal/psych hybrid Sydney band the Hard-Ons! turned 30 this year. To be precise on July 21th the middle-aged trio celebrated this anniversary.
To get in the mood, check out these old-school videos:
A good reason to get back over to Europe again. Resulting into some dates in The Netherlands and Belgium as well!
The three dates they have in store for the Benelux are:
19-09-2014: Den Haag (NL) @ Supermarkt with Accelerators
05-10-2014: Utrecht (NL) @ dBs
06-10-2014: Kortrijk (BE) @ The Pits
The Hackensaw Boys have just reached their goal to record a new studio album at the Levon Helm Studios with three-time Grammy-winning procuder Larry Campbell and his engineer Justin Guip. It has been a while since their last studio album and now we can expect one in 2015!
The originally Virginian band are over in Europe this month for a string of concerts. It’s been a few years but they’re back in Ireland and the UK for some festivals and clubs; further explore Germany and return to their beloved Benelux. Find all dates at the bottom of this message.
Originated in 1999, these guys have been able to create their own brand of bluegrass. With feet firmly planted in the old-time song tradition, hand soiled by the dirt of rock n’ roll and eyes fixed steadily on the future of real country music, the Hackensaw Boys are among the most exiting groups charting new territory in today’s diverse Americana music scene.
Hackensaw Boys perform “C’mon Baby Don’t Bet Against Me” at WNRN:

Due to the huge amount of interest – the King of Mosey – Daniel Romano gives an EXTRA show at TivoliVredenburg on Sunday 12th October. Previously the young Canadian country singer sold out his evening performance, now a matinee concert is confirmed. Tickets for this show are on sale NOW, get yours right here:
After successful concerts including Paradiso (Amsterdam), The Grand Social (Dublin), Into The Great Wide Open (Vlieland) and The Black Heart (London) it is clear that Romano’s latest album ‘Come Cry With Me‘ (2013) gets the publicity and attention it deserves. With his old school country music, he himself refers to as Mosey, he can compete with his biggest example George Jones but also Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.
Today Daniel and his Trilliums band will be in Groningen performing at the Take Root festival. This will be their last Dutch performance until October 12th. In the meantime there is some nice footage to check out. Last weekend, while on Into The Great Wide Open a great session was recorded by VPRO’s 3VOOR12:
The Pussywarmers and Réka are returning to the Benelux TWICE this Fall! This self-willed orchestra comes over with their new release “I Saw Them Leaving” out on Wild Honey Records. *Stream* the album right here.
You can expect a loopy extravaganza of styles: think of the dope & glory jazz era in the mid 1920s. They could easily be the Titanic Dance Orchestra on the only ride this ship has ever made. They have a dark side and could have been on the funeral for the people that haven’t survived this ride.

Scott H. Biram has some fun stuff coming up for the last half of 2014, including a full five week European tour in September and October, see all dates below!
“Nothin’ But Blood” is his latest album out on Bloodshot Records: when you boil it all down in a simmering cauldron: sludge metal, the raw sucker punch of punk rock, profound truths of sentimental acoustic blues and country, the cleansing powers of gospel hymns and ballads, and folk tales from the early 20th century.
His singing, yodeling, growling, leering and brash preachin’ and hollerin’ is accompanied by sloppy riffs and licks and pounding backbeat brought forth by his amplified left foot. The remainder of this one-man band consists of an unwieldy combination of beat-up amplifiers and old microphones strung together by a tangled mess of guitar cables.
Yeas of compulsive touring, along with a steady diet of down and dirty blues, rock, punk, country, and hillbilly have developed Scott H. Biram’s signature concoction, attracting a hefty array of fans who dig the bizarre and twisted sides of the rock and roll spectrum. His live shows unleash a Lemmy-sized metal attitude, a stomping, pulsing John Lee Hooker-channeling, and cockeyed tales of black water baptisms and murder, all while romanticizing the on-the-road lifestyle.
Scott H. Biram isn’t a one-man band. He is THE one-man band!
