But this year the Groezrock had two names enough to overcome my paranoia and hatred for the overcrowded places: Descentent and Creching Weasel. Lawrence Arms ends, and we walk to Etnies for the last few minutes of Iron Chic. Bass farggione, guitars jammed through a textbook between distortions and arpeggios, a long continuous singing throughout the tent, crazy audience and dive stages as if there was no tomorrow!
I like them a lot and it was the third time I've seen them live, but they started really soft, I didn't know this could be charity. He moves, is excited and has fun like a child, doesn't chat and one by one the treats I wanted to hear, that I want to be a bear, I'm the one, coffee cup, suburban house, nothing with you (damn heartbeat!), when I get old, talk, thank you, I'm not a loser etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc..
But as soon as I get there, I decide I can finally see it; it's the 20th anniversary of Punk In Drublic and it's an album that I like after all. And indeed it was so that it was not only a pleasant surprise, but also turned out to be a great musician, that pieces pulled, beautiful bottom row act, stay dipping and happy people: all perfect, in short, hopefully they think again. I can't scream.
A Screeching Weasel concert without controversy is not a Screeching Weasel concert, so Ben decides to give advice about the side effects of monsters. Remembering Rock In Idrho 2012: festivals on suspension for two raindrops, I was only there for Rancid... I only had enough spare moment to hear one (I promise, just one!) Sum 41 album.
The Groezrock had two good reputations this year, to get over my parents' guilt and my hate for congested places: Offspring and screaming weasels. I was really interested in the other groups... but in the end a break with my buddies is not a too good thing, so we chose to go to Meerhout, Belgium.
A: Go to Groezrock (this is about every event outside Italy) and you will see why. Due to the fact that Enri and I are present at the same time at the festival...soon (???) there will also be his comment. I' ve said many a time on these pages that I'm not a big supporter of this new "wave" of punkrock that' coming from the USA, but I have to say that these moustached men are really good.
I' ve heard Chamberlain Waits and On the Past a few gigs and I recognise a lot of music. Actually, I suppose they even did play some of the tracks from the new record that was just out. And I was so nosy to see this group. I have never been a big supporter of them, although I have acknowledged their total value and certainly they were one of the most anticipated among the festival groups.
I' m sure Enri will give you more detail. So what can I say... great live performance, awesome rythm line, I really enjoyed the gig and I think I really need to give Larry Arms a more alert ear. Admitted that he would like to perform in Italy, but in the Belpaese Lawrence Arms have always had little resonance... and they don't want to take the chance of a disaster.
He also seems to be living with his familiy in Italy and wants to give an acoustical concerto here. As the Lawrence Arms ended, we ran to the Etnies Stage for Iron Chic. A few and a half years before they went to Milan, but I dropped their show.
Built from the Latterman's cinders ( no one was so in love with her 10 years ago) these boys did a mad show. Dizzy basses, a twisted distortion guitars perfect jammed with another in Arpeggio's, the whole crowd sings a long and wacky dive as if there was no morning.
Which do you want more? I' d have been expecting a lot, a lot more from your show. Personally, I loved AC3 and that was the third times I saw it alive, but the show really got slack, I didn't even recognise This Could Be Love. What a great show! Somewhat as a self-propelled truck they got better and better and performed great tunes like She Song to The FBI, Sadie, Dine, Dine, Dine My Darling. Just a little more.
The last few tracks were Stupid Kid, Private Eye and a very nice radio one. Actually, I would have liked a few more Maybe I'll Fire tracks, but all in all it's fine. After a while they show up on scene with Milo. Considering the available amount of free space, I'd say yes, although a little more of Everything Sucks and Cool To Be You is being taken...............
As a child he moved, trembled and had a lot of good time, no shit, so they used to play all the tunes I wanted to listen to, as if I wanted to be a bear, I'm the one, coffee cup, Suburban Home, Nothing with You when I get old, talkin', Thank You, I'm not a loer etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
Soon as I got there, I decided that I could see them too...it's the 20th jubilee of Punk In Drublic and it's an album I like in the end. Around noon when NOFX go on stages there is a sudden delicacy in the area, I go back and look for my own haven to listen to the music.
I' ll find a place with a good lookout? Now, a Rastmann is standing before me.... and it goes on like this for the whole concerto. At the beginning of some tunes they did play incorrectly (e.g. Happy Guy... ok, never done anything life, but good paying as a bunch... I expected much more), Fat Mike endowed with a big scar like a Habanero prefers to act like a cock on stages instead of play.
Audiences like that, but it confuses me, I have to be frank. In the end my opinions aren't important... the crowd is having a good time and they still did play great tunes ("Quart in Session" with Milo Auckerman as our guitarist), so completely exhausted that we go to the hostal for a well deserved break.
Very little I knew about these four California boys, just a few samples of Put Out or Get Out, nothing more. Although I'm a little prejudiced because they don't exactly fit into my own restricted musical area, I agree when I go to the early days of the show to see these young women, now women so much beloved by Fat Mike: this is the last ever show, so it should definitely be a lot of enjoyable.
In fact, they were not only great performers, but also a pleasant suprise, great tunes, pogos near the theatre, stages and cheerful people: in a nutshell, everything was great, I really hoped they would continue to play. It'?s just the kind of tape the kid shares. Everything pointed to an afterword similar to last year, except for the arctic climate.
Full of doubt and with a Beer + Jagermeister troupe I went on the central platform to watch the cast. Gluesniffer persuaded me to take a look at the smaller Groezrock stage: "They are the only Italien group in the Groezrock, let's take a look at them" The nearer I get, the more the ages of the crowd are reduced, the clumps and caps are more and more weird and despite the extreme coldness the unified order is the coloured fuel top:
It takes me 2 min to realise that my place at the event is everywhere, but not there. There is no question in my mind that they are very good and that will address both the general audience, but buoyant rhythm, horn and keyboard are too much for me. I can almost understand when they are playing with two guitar, but this is not my favorite soundtrack.
I' m looking at the watch all the while, and I' m counting the minute I get off the SW. The descendants without Milo substituted in practise the moustached Chad, who plays lieder that seem somewhat dull. Descendants' song is much, much cooler. When you have not noticed it yet, my awareness, my power and all my energy have been concentrated for these 50 mins.
Last year I was fortunate to see the screaming weasel in Santa Ana, California, who was sure it was the only opportunity in my live, but no... sometimes my live is smiling at me and Ben Weasel & Co determined that after almost 30 years it was maybe Europe night.
Okay, Meerhout is not just around the corner and I was really afraid that the contest setting would get compared to the Santa Ana gig, but luckily I was proved guilty. Waiting gets annoying, so an introduction starts, Zac Damon, Mike Hunchback, Pierre Marche and Zach Poutine are on it, and Ben is on scene... I choke you and "Bye", I'm completely gone.....
As a child, I felt like I was in a similar situation again, singing all the tracks, slogans, Dingbat, Queen Kong, Supermarket Fantasy, My Right, I have written Holden Caufield - I'm moving like a cunt - Veronica hate me, Hey Suburbia and so on... A screeching weasel act without being controversial is not a screeching weasel act, so Ben decided to give me tips about side issues of Monster Energy.
With my right index pointing right at the scene, Ben is near our side and says "Hi -Five". I don't think Ben could be wrong. Unfortunately the tracks run too quickly and the end approaches and closes with Cool Kids, who are expected by a dispute, this times to the Wavern, Szenestern, Shakern and Posern, which Ben hates since 3 years.
Unfortunately the show ends and we get together with the other travel companions: Palmi instead talks for herself and when you ask something, she somehow answers: "ahshs fffdfibius fdiosdiod" I also saw Speciani and I even see him with a smile, Paganelli and Giallongo are without a vote instead, so they can't even cuss.
We' re discussing the set list and more or less we are all happy, they only had 50 min to start playing, so it was almost not possible to make it better. There was no interest in Hives or The Offspring and even more after those 50 minute orgasms, everything is wasted. Yeah, ok, the hives usually do a great show, The Offspring do the whole Smash record, but the next morning there was about 12 hour drive and my hart was still pounding for the SW.
Reflexions after the SW: any shape or any line-up they are playing, the Screeching Weasel are "THE" group. They are my favorite group after the Ramones...and no dispute or dirty act will be able to wipe out the emotion and memory of many tracks that are part of the sound track of my dumb lifetime.
Ben has made it clear through his page on Facebook that there is really very little opportunity to return to play in Europe, maybe we will have to sit for another 30 years, who knows...but I will be there with a catch and point the fingers at him and await another thrilling Hi-Five.
