As a special addition to the Crunchy Frog show case on this year’s
CMJ Music Marathon in NYC (where both superhereos and Learning From Las
Vegas are also playing) The Tremolo Beer Gut will hit the states for
the first time. The gig will be at Luna Lounge in Ludlow St (near the
corner of E. Houston St.) on saturday 18th September at 4pm. If you
happen to be anywhere near there, don’t miss it!!!
The Beer Gut just released their debut album in
May, and has also already been released in Japan this summer. The band
pretty soon reached the #15 on the hit list at the Beach-radio in
Tokyo. This is a station only broadcasting on the many beaches in the
Tokyo area which have 100s of 1000s of visitors every week. What
could be more approproiate than listening to Tremolo chilling on the
Sune and Yebo surfin’ away at their latest
at VibraCrunch. A red hot and pretty damned inebriated performance that
was the culmination of the many gigs Tremolo played in Denmark and
Sweden during summer.
And now the US of A - the birthplace of both
surf, western and garrage rock - will be the next stretch of beach for
the Tremolo guys to conquer. Yebo, Jengo and Per will meet up with Sune
who is already residing in Seattle, Washington, where he is forming a
new band after Psyched Up Janis broke up this summer. Much against
their ordinary style the band just might do a small rehearsal before
the New York show (this summer they played 10 gigs and rehearsed only
professionals!). The reason for this break with a fine tradition
is the pretty big possibility for Mr. Jon Spencer from The Mighty Blues
Explosion being in the audience.
When JSBX played a gig in Malmö in the spring,
Magnus from The Cardigans - who is himself a devoted Tremolo listener -
handed over some copies of ”The Inebriated Sounds of The Tremolo Beer
Gut” to the Blues Exploders. Then nothing happened for a long time.
Then suddenly 2 days before JSBXs show at Århus Festuge in
Denmark their manager called the danish promoter and asked if Tremolo
could support the gig. Unfortunately Sune had just gone to the US, and
Jengo was in Paris (for once...!) so the band was much against their
will (and wildest dreams) unable to play.
But Yebo decided to take fate into his own two trembling hands,
and went straight to Århus to give Spencer, Bauer & Simmins some
vinyl singles that features songs not available on the album.
Yes! This is the shit! I like it!
Yebo meets Mr. Cool...
...and it's love at first sight!
he finally met with Mr. Rock himself it turned out that Jon Spencer is
a great fan of the Tremolo album. Can you believe that? Yebo couldn't,
but he had to deal with the unreality of it all later, as Spencer asked
100 questions about the record, and praised both the Tremolo songs and
the Tremolo sounds. Well, if The Tremolo Beer Gut had to pick only one
person in the whole freakin' Universe that they wanted to like their
record, it would definitely be Jon Spencer. Not too fucking shabby at all!

The Tremolo Beer Gut tries the local brew at McSorleys Ale House - the oldest bar in New York. Damn fine beer.
Mr. Jon Spencer of the Blues Explosion showed up together with his
soundman, and enjoyed Tremolo's gig at Luna Lounge. you can't get a
cooler audience than that!
