FAT TROUT TRAILER PARK
Fat Trout Trailer Park is a post-punk response to modern life, where beyond the noise lies an incisive critique of contemporary society. Economic and environmental violence are looming presences; depression rears its head and hedonism spirals out of control as Fat Trout Trailer Park interrogates its overarching theme: 21st century disillusionment. The band's sophomore EP Florida is a four-track cluster of angst, anxiety and antagonistic jabs aimed at the establishment, built on the foundation of guitar- driven dissidence and nightmarish psychedelic interludes.
With sophisticated, articulate aggression, Fat Trout Trailer Park stands to continue assault on Wall Street culture and the phoney meritocracy, while frequently retreating to review the inner turmoil of the individual in such disturbing times. Since the reopening of venues in 2021, the band has launched its ascent through the New York City live circuit. Fat Trout Trailer Park will now cross the pond with a ‘homecoming tour’ for drummer Laurence Rushworth (UK) and frontman Sean Raab (BE). A dream come true for all Belgian fans of Sean’s former band Wooly Mammoths (De Nieuwe Lichting 2014) and every fan of post-punk energy with ear catching melodies!
JAKOMO is a Brussels-based band that transforms their turbulent twenties into a sound they call suave rock. The band found its origin in frontman Julien Tanghe's bedroom, where he and his social anxiety withdrew themselves to create music. It didn’t take long to find a musical partner in Wout Vermijs (guitar), who also brought the whole visual aspect of the band to life. Match made in heaven!
The band soon played Dour, Botanique and Ancienne Belgique. A well-deserved place in the finals of Humo's Rock Rally 2020 followed a few months later and they impressed everybody with their debut EP Fastbreak. JAKOMO's debut album will be released in the spring of 2023 on On The Level. For this very special occasion, JAKOMO will be joining the party as support for Fat Trout Trailer Park in their long-awaited first show in Brussels and the long-awaited return of their friend Sean.
