Hollywood Sinners Disastro Garantito

Added 27/3/2011

Hollywood Sinners

Dear garage rockers,

Hollywood Sinners originate from Toledo, Spain and started making their punk-garage rock around Y2K.

The wild band used to be a gang of four, but they are nowadays composed of :

Edu Sinner : guitar & vocal

CarmeloTornado : bass

Marco Sinner : drums

« The only way they know is making noise and breaking down their instruments » ; no wonder why their live shows are said to be legendary throughout Europe...

They already performed in many gigs in the UK, toured Germany & Italy.

Maybe France will soon be on the list.

One of their next Spanish gigs will be on 9 April at the all-day Dirty Water festival organised in Logrono, La Rioja, by Fast Fun Bizarre and London based Dirty Water Records, where Hollywood Sinners will be playing with The Wildebeests for instance.

Whether they are new to you (like to me) or are your favourite band, they are simply irresistible.

The songs are fast, loud, catchy, sweaty, simple yet tight tunes that will stick to your head like superglue ! Just listen to their latest LP Disastro Garantito and you will understand.

It has just been released by DWR and is available there for you to order

If you hurry up a little, you might still get it with a pre-release discount.

I am waiting for my copy to arrive sometime soon ;o)

@+/bis bald/bye/un saludo (listening to Hollywood Sinners, Huesos, track n°9 from Disastro Garantito)

Cake at La Cigale gig review

Added 22/3/2011

Cake,la cigale,an evening with cake,paris gig,

Dear Cake fans,

Were you there ? Were you @ La Cigale in Paris last Saturday ?

Hadn't you waited for long enough before you could see Cake live ?

Surely there was not room for everyone in a packed up La Cigale (ca 1,000 heads, from what I read). I had bought my tickets monthS ago, and there were none left by last Christmas time !  With only 3 dates in London, Paris & Amsterdam ! That was a most-wanted short « european tour » indeed.

Cake played a mix of older tracks and new titles out of Showroom of Compassion, Fashion Nuggets, Comfort Eagle, Prolonging the Magic, Pressure Chief, mainly.

Not in order of appearance :

Federal Founding, Long Time

Mexico, Never There,

Short Skirt / Long Jacket,


Frank Sinatra, The Distance, I Will Survive, Sad Songs and Waltzes...

The audience was obviously ready for a masterpiece of Cake, from the start till the end, clapping, singing, encouraging & screaming. The audience sang unexpectedly well.

It also seemed to have enjoyed the Apple Tree episode ; I personally found it boring as it lasted too long. Nice ecological thinking and Cake tradition, but...

We could have got Satan is My Motor, Sheep Go To Heaven & Carbon Monoxide instead.

Anyway, Cake are unique and they played their unique sound. That's what we'd come for, wasn't it ?

That is also why many stayed at the closed doors.

A nice gig overall, but maybe the previous night in London at the Troxy, added to the jet lag and the perspective of having to play a third one in a row the following evening in A'dam Paradiso made they were not at the top of their fitness ;

Cake play great cool & smooth tunes. The gig reflected that perfectly. That's the most important.

The Band was great, Vincent's trumpet sound, John's peculiar voice, a very good Xan on guitar...

John's sense of humour was nice too ;)

Cake performed an enjoyable set, which fans appreciated. A lot.

Thank you Cake, for that nice evening with you.

@+/see you (listening to Cake @ La Cigale).
