The Fleshtones
"rock-and-roll madness"
The NY Times

 Forty years ago in Queens, New York, Keith Streng and his buddy Marek Pakulski discovered some guitars in a basement of a house they were renting. They picked up those guitars, found some cheap amps, and started banging out noise. By ’77, local drummer Lenny Calderon was on board as the steady drummer. One day Peter Zaremba, an art student friend with long bangs, a harmonica, and a manic vision, dropped by the house, grabbed a mic, and named the band THE FLESHTONES.

In addition to gigs at that fabled club and at Max’s Kansas City, the Fleshtones found a home at the rock/performance-art home at Club 57 on St. Mark’s Place, and in 1978 signed with Marty Thau’s Red Star Records and recorded a full-length album. The next year they released their debut single, the classic “American Beat”. In the mid- and late-1980s, Zaremba kept busy hosting MTV’s Cutting Edge. Throughout that decade and the 1990s, the Fleshtones released plenty of albums and singles, toured the U.S. and Europe regularly in front of packed clubs and large festivals, and anointed nonbelievers worldwide.

The Fleshtones are the only band to debut at CBGB in 1976 that hasn’t experienced an inactive year. They have, in one way or another, inspired countless other bands over the decades, including R.E.M., Hoodoo Gurus, and The Dream Syndicate, and their showmanship and musical influence is palpable in many current bands throughout North America, Europe, and Scandinavia.The Fleshtones have survived Punk Rock, New Wave, No Wave, Neo Garage, Post-Punk, Grunge, and more NeoGarage, never succumbing to trendiness, scornful laughter, liquidated record labels, or non-alcoholic beer.

THE 925

Fondé en 2021 à Gand, The 925 (à prononcer The Nine to Five) propose une musique garage rock pleine d’énergie, influencée aussi bien par des groupes majeurs des années 60 et contemporains.

Durant sa première année d’existence, le groupe a arpenté les plus grandes salles du plat pays en tant que première partie de The Fleshtones, The Sore Losers, ou encore Boogie Beasts.

En 2022, la sortie de leur premier EP s’est accompagnée d’un concert complet au Vooruit, ainsi que d’une tournée en Allemagne, aux Pays-Bas, et de nombreuses diffusions de leurs morceaux dans des radios aussi bien belges que néerlandaises.
