They could have called themselves the Dirty Sanchez’s or the The Cleveland Steamers, but instead this Belgian punkrock band took their name from what is quite possibly the saddest sexual position known to man. While it may make for an interesting pre-show ritual, we are luckily only being exposed to their album “On Verra” (that’s French for “we’ll see”).

If you’re into melodic punkrock with gritty vocals not all that different from Red City Radio, the Dopamines or pretty much every other band playing at the Fest, you are most likely going to enjoy the nine songs that make up the band’s debut full-length. It’s not entirely original, but they sure as hell know their way around a hook and they have plenty of energy going on.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
