Les Schtroumpfs Alcooliques (Bel) rehearsal (1994)

Standard

(Listen!)

‘Les Schtroumpfs Alcooliques’ (‘L.S.A.’; “the alcoholic smurfs” were a band from Merchtem (near Brussels), where bassist Gerd Van Hoof helped organise gigs at the local youth-centre Ifigineia). The others in the band were Mike Du Bois (drums & vocals) and Raf Du Bois (guitar; R.I.P.). The guys used to be ‘frequent flyers’ at Smurfpunx shows. They played (poppy/melodic) punk. Later (’95) they released another tape (entitled Play It Loud). Some of those tracks appeared on a 4-way split (Screams From Belgium) with ‘Muggles’, ‘Hirudo’ & ‘Honey Honey’ that Tim Leten of Filth Ear distribution (also in the band ‘Karma’) released in ’97. There was also a self-titled CD recorded in 1998. Gerd & Mike started ‘Sunpower’ after all this…

Review in Tilt! #8: >>Slowish to midtempo , simple but effective HCpunkrock with selfconfident vocals. Lyrically not always so enlightened…<<
