The Crackups are a band of extremes. Insanely fast, but tight as a duck's ass. Extremely loud but with a keen sense of melody. Featuring members from Double Veterans, Priceduifkes, Psycho 44, they gained notoriety through fiercely intense live shows and a defiant punk attitude. After reaching the finals of Belgium's biggest talent hunt Humo's Rock Rally and releasing a bottle rocket of a debut album with 'Animals on Acid', they suddenly disappeared from the scene in 2012. Nowthey are throwing themselves headfirst into a comeback, the likes of which this land has never seen... expect sounds inspired by The Stooges, Black Flag and Devo, mashed into something fiercely unique and original.
March 2015, La Muerte did a highly praised come back show at a sold outAncienne Belgique in Brussels. Founding members Marc du Marais & Dee J. were joined by so called “New Blood” Michel Kirby (Arkangel, Wolvennest, Length of Time, Deviate...), Christian Z (Length of Time) and Tino de Martino (Channel Zero). When they reunited, La Muerte was supposed to play one show and one show only, In the meantime they issued not less than 5 releases: a live album, two 12” EP’s, a 7” single and a full album. The band is now (06/072021) actually mixing their new album with producer Déhà, who also worked on the previous one.
After an insane roadtrip, The Glücks got together as a couple and as a band. Alek and Tina bonded over a love for all things dirty and fuzzy: The Cramps, Stooges, Pebbles/Nuggets garage and punk. Add to that an urge to get away from the “shithole” they grew up in, and you’ve got the recipe for some good infernal rock’n’roll. Even with the mother of all hangovers, the band nailed a full album of eight songs in 2 days. The second album topped that with 11 songs recorded in the same amount of time. 'Run Amok' from 2018 is their most accomplished outing to date, a vibrant heartfelt piece of work filled to the brim with songs for the underdogs, the generation denied... the generation undefined.
