Finally it's here.. The VC7 review
7th VibraCrunch sure was a blast. On August 26th Crunchy Frog presented
a bill of 10 awesome artists from Denmark, Sweden, Germany and USA. The
weatherman promised us rain, but not on this watch... The sun was out
with a bit of chilling wind. Loads and loads of people showed up to
atend the FREE Crunchylicious festival with musical madness and swedens
finest lager beer. VC7 was held at a new venue - a 3 staged festival
area situated in Mölleparken, Malmö.
There was excitment about the new venue and everything
turned out to be a-okay apart from a stupid Swedish beer policy making
it impossible to enjoy a beer in front of the stages. Something that
was quite a pain in the butt for many among the public.
hole thang started at 17:00 with the crazy tones of Bazookahosen. They
delivered a spectacular performance, even though the crowd was a bit
thin. Song after song more and more people started showing up, getting
a glimpse of Bazookahosens excellent stageshow. Due to tecnically
problems we don't have any pictures of them, but if you were there and
got some snapshots - please e-mail them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we
will put them up along with your name.
next band to take a shot at the audiance was Tublenco. Tublenco
delivered a frantic stageshow with dancing chorusgirls, Mr. Tublén
himself in a cowboy hat and cool shades and even a guy on tablas.
Funky, loud and very danceable. We are looking forward to hearing some
more demos from this outfit. Cooooool stuff.
Tublenco came the crazed, fun lovin' band who got their name from a
funny vehicle. We're ofcourse talking about The Mopeds.
Their latest longplayer FORTISSIMO has set new standards
in r’n’r show biz. Now amps can be cranked up to 11 — just that extra
notch and that's just what they did at VibraCrunch7. It was sooo loud
that the rest of freakin' Malmö could hear the concert -HOT DAMN!
up was the weird danish band Death to Frank Ziyanak who delivered
trio-rock with an edge. They have several really great songs and a
weird shitkicker kind of cool that you don't see too often.
Unfortunately for DTFZ it was early in the day and many
people opted for the damned beer stalls and listened from afar.
Regardless of this the band gave it hell and gave us a great show.
Stockholm band South Ambulance was up next. They have the ambition to
write good music on Saturdays and record it on Sundays. This day they
played on a friday and it was a fucking amazing concert. We especially
loved the dude with a beard and big curly red hair!!!
Unfortuanally we don't have any pictures of this band either -
so again, if you were there and got some snapshots, send 'em to us at
email@example.com and we will post them with your name - Thanks!
is known for mixing loud rock, alternative country, electronica, catchy
popsongs and a lot more with intelligent lyrics. This night was no
exception. They were actually the first band to get the tent filled
with people and they got what they wanted. No one could resist the
music and soon everybody was mesmerized by the band.
Trash rocked y'all back to the 50s with their oldschool rock'n'roll. A
nice mixture of rockabilly, surf, blues and country in the coolest
Matt Verta-Ray gave it hell with his amazing twang-guitar and
explosive solos backed by Jon Spencer's mean rhythm guitar and craaaazy
The band was joined by Kim "kix" Jeppesen from PowerSolo on
upright, surfin' bass and Jesper "Yebo" Reginal from The Tremolo Beer
Gut on stompin' drums.
Together they made the audience explode and hungry for more. A very dynamic and awsome band.
is one of the finest bands right now on the Danish inde rock scene.
Their latest album is of a very high standard and the lads didn't let
us down this night. The lead singer is quite a star and is the focal
point of the live show. The songs are expressed with passion and skill.
Great VC7 show.
highlight of the evening for many among the Crunchy Staff was the
reunion of 18th Dye. Although Basti had a few problems with his guitar
and the powersupply, the Dye was back in style. BIG TIME. Seeing Piet
pounding the drums like he was born to do, hearing Sebastian let it RIP
on the distorted guitar and just the sheer pleasure of witnessing the
queen of cool on the bass guitar - all three of them on same stage, in
perfect sync and determined to surpass whatever high points they had in
the past ... was such
a treat! We hope to hear much more from this legendary group in the future.
band almost everybody came to see and hear - The Raveonettes. The tent
lifted off the earth to the tunes of "Love in a Trashcan" from the new
album "Pretty in Black" and the ol' "Attack of the Ghost Riders". The
band was in excellent shape
and they made a sensational performance, blowin' people's eardrums to oblivion.
Sune and Sharin in front doing their thang, while the rest of the band got their backs covered. A truly amazing live band.
Here at Crunchy HQ we can't thank you people enough for supporting us - Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
We hope to see you all again next year for some more fun and music.
