Here’s (take a deep breath) … HYPOCRISTMUTREEFUZZ !

‘Schizophrenic Blues’ by HYPOCHRISTMUTREEFUZZ

Hypo… what? Hypochristmutreefuzz (the person who invented copy/paste is a genius). It’s an up and coming Belgian band named after a song by internationally renowed Dutch free jazz artist Mischa Mengelberg ! The noisy quintet hail from Ghent, my hometown, and I saw them performing live for the first time last Monday in my fav club ‘Café Video‘ (where I saw and met Seattle’s surf punks Tacocat and Parquet Courts’ befriended band PC Worship last year). The acquaintance was nothing less than ‘WOW’!


Paranoia rock…

They sound like Queens Of The Stone Age who are waiting impatiently for their daily drugs dose. Slowly madness creeps in. Only loud paranoia rock can save them. Frontman Ramses Van den Eede is the boogie man in the middle.


Ramses – the boogie man…

His on stage character would fit perfectly in a David Lynch movie. He moves like a snake on speed and is always keen to meet his prey, eh… fans eye to eye. Concert promoters of the world be alert, be very alert ! ‘Schizophrenic Blues’ is the leading track of their newly released debut EP. A freaky son of a psych monster ! Perfect ! Taste it !


Ramses – the wandering soul…
