Next to the sadly demolished CBGB in New York, the still overly active Strip on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles and the Marquee in London – that suffered the same fate as the CBGB – we now have De Verlichte Geest in Roeselare. I have to admit, the name is not so glamorous – but if you now that CBGB (full name CBGB & OMFUG) stood for Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers you might think differently – and the little town Roeselare has even less appeal. BUT what yours truly and some faithful companions have seen these last 2 years was even in the glorious eighties not possible. Due to the fact that most bands were simply too big to bother with a trip to a small country as Belgium but also the gigantic amount of work that Sandy & her team are putting in this endeavor. And still coming up this year at that little glam shack are Lizzy Borden & Faster Pussycat! But first…

Pleasure Addiction. And again a French band that is making the effort to spread the Holy Word of Glam to the as always quite rowdy bunch of people in De Verlichte Geest. Is there a glam wave active with our neighbors in the South? Anyway, our French brothers kicked off in style and before we knew it we were singing along to the happy party tunes full of nifty backing vocals, style Pretty Boy Floyd & the lot. Nice effort, boys!

Damn Dice, the band to entertain us next have a rather nice story going on about them. The band is supposedly formed in London, UK by 2…eh, French dudes. They were looking for people and found…wait for it, an Italian bloke and for good measure & translation purposes a UK singer. And we quite enjoyed the no nonsense show as well, although it wasn’t easy due to sound problems during the show. The ‘disappearing’ bass player and singer, at least their respective sounds, made it hard to enjoy the show to its full extent. Nevertheless I have to say that I saw a band with some promise and I want to hear soon from these boys again.

What is there to be said about a band like L.A. Guns that hasn’t been said before? We enjoyed the Tracii Guns-version a while ago in the same place but for your scribbler this is the version that I really wanted to see as I simply adore Mr. Phil Lewis’ voice and I was hoping that the particular tonsils had stood the test of time. But I needn’t worry; from the first words of ‘Over The Edge’ I knew that we were in for a treat! The voice was fully intact after all these years and the band, consisting of long serving drummer Steve Riley and Stacey Blades & Scott Griffin on respectively guitar & bass was firing on all six. What followed was a greatest hits set list with a couple of songs of most albums. And with a set list like that one can always argue about the songs. I would have preferred ‘One More Reason’ in on the list in favor of another, lesser song but that’s personal opinion. It rocked hard and it sure was nice to witness Phil Lewis’s L.A. Guns in great form, as was the singer himself. Another highlight, in fact!
