El Topo Bookings proudly presents two days of full-blown craziness!
FLAPPING EARS (20.00 - 20.30)
We are proud to present the second ever show of this young Turnhout band. They play a great mix of rock and reggae. They’ve ensured us that it’s gonna be something special, and that’s exactly what we’re after. We can’t say much more about it yet – just come check it out for yourself!
IRIE LION (21.00 - 21.30)
Chill-out roots reggae, the perfect start of a weekend! IRIE LION have been rocking gently all over Belgium for years now, and they’re finally stopping in Tydeeh. Their line-up has changed considerably, but the essence of the band is the same: roots rock reggae that’ll get you moving.
LOS DUEÑOS (LUX) (22.00 - 22.45)
With Los Dueños we have booked one of the finest bands of Luxembourg. They play sweet reggae with some bits of ska mixed in for danceability. Dual vocals top off their recipe to party. Sounds interesting!
FAT ANGEL (NL) (23.00 - 00.00)
Fat Angel plays fast crazy gypsy punk that would make Gogol Bordello proud. It’ll get you bouncing off the walls, skanking in circles and much, much more. These Dutch guys are bringing the party to Mol, and with them it’s time to get loco!
FREE AFTERPARTY w/ DJ DISCOBAR SKAGOE
KOALA COMMISSION (15.00 – 15.30)
At El Topo Bookings we pride ourselves in giving young, new bands the chance to play with great established ones. We’re very proud to present you the very first show of KOALA COMMISSION. Having grown up surrounded by acts such as Pickle Juice and CanIrepeed, there’s no doubt this Zele skapunk eightpiece knows their shit. Expect gypsy mandolins, circus trumpets and early skanking!
COVER RANGERS (16.00 - 16.30)
What? Cover Rangers? Didn’t they break up? Yes they did, and now they’re back! Line-up’s changed a bit but the core of the band is still the same: turning old pop classics into straightforward punkrock tunes. The very first reunion show is bound to be something special, so don’t miss out.
YOU NERVOUS? (17.00 - 17.30)
Making waves all over Belgium, You Nervous? have put their blink 182-coverband on the side and started creating their own tunes. Blink is never far away in this pop/skatepunk band’s sound, but it’s got its own unique recipe. Catchy melodies and sugar-sweet riffs are what we’re in for. Sounds like a treat!
THE LIABILITIES (UK) (18.00 - 18.30)
You know when you’re listening to really fast skatepunk and it’s really amazing, but you just don’t know how to dance to it? THE LIABILITIES solve that for you, throwing in good ol’ skanking ska rhytms, only making it even better. Funny lyrics and general shenanigans is what you should expect, just how we like it.
ELEPHANT (19.00 - 19.45)
What’s in a name? These local heroes have been trashing stages for a few years, stomping across the crowd, dual guitars wielded like two sharp tusks. Their music? The hardcore vibes of The Bronx, with the rock ‘n roll attitude of Danko Jones. It’s time to let the beast out.
SILLY SNAILS (20.15 - 21.00)
The only band to play El Topo Goes Loco 2014 that has played Tydeeh before is Skallonia’s SILLY SNAILS. Ever since their first appearance we wanted to let this skanking squad return and now the time has come! Three-piece horn section plus heavy riffs equals one of Belgium’s finest bands.
WILL TUN & THE WASTERS ft MC AMALGAM (UK) (21.30 - 22.15)
Those who follow the UK ska scene have probably noticed that a lot of bands there like to mix it up. WILL TUN & THE WASTERS is one of them, throwing in ska, punk and hiphop with their folksy party sound. Your feet won’t know what to do first as this combo pulls out ukuleles, accordions and other things.
JET8 (CZ) (22.45 - 23.30)
From Praha, Czech Republic comes this bunch of brasspunx, ready to make you party! Taking their influences from all over the world, they’ve been playing their brand of skapunk since 2005. It’s all DIY and very much their own way, so give their Bandcamp a listen and get ready to dance the shit out of them!
RANDOM HAND (UK) (00.00 - 01.00)
Yes we did. Headlining El Topo Goes Loco will be one of the absolute legends of the UK ska scene. Random Hand is coming over for one full hour of head-bashing skacore. Get ready for the biggest skank-mosh-crowdsurf party this town has ever seen, and pray they don’t tear the whole town down.
