Blackup – Club Dorothee: Pre-Order / Review / Interview / Review

“Der Opener „Panthers Kiss“ hat mich erst ein wenig verstört aber mit dem ersten Song „The Last Things“ haben mir die Jungs doch ein schönes kleines Geschenk beschert. Schmutziger Hardrock, den ich immer wieder gerne höre. Gute Gitarrenarbeit und einfach nur Mugge zum Trinken, feiern und in Clubs rumhängen.” –

Jon Spencer contributed to the album opener ‘Panther’s Kiss’ with his sweet-ass vocals. And it’s just starting from there. Hit after hit after hit. I’m hooked. Major league hooked!”

New interview with Xavier Benoit and Miguel Moors has been published by

“What has been the best performance you’ve seen so far?

M: In the mid-nineties we had a local club (Democrazy) booking the hottest bands in the world (no I’m not referring to KISS). The Jesus Lizard’s shows are absolutely the best things I ever saw.

X:Whoohoo, damn, I saw thousands of gigs. Most memorable, off the top of my head, Ornette Coleman, Slayer Reign in Blood tour, Bad Brains mid 80s, Nation of Ulysses, Prince, Ween, Public Enemy, the first two reunion shows by a little band called Negative Approach I mean, the list goes on. Going on tour with people like Flag, Descendents and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion also counts as a high point, no doubt.” –

Xavier Benoit has compiled a playlist for Gonzo Circus, stream from their site.


“Manchmal statisch, stoisch und monoton wummern Riffing, Vocals und Schlagzeugspiel, um dem gleichförmigen Rhythmus eine dramaturgische Note zu verpassen.
Das grenzt schon an Verweigerung. Und das ist schließlich Punk. Doch in ‘Fake News’ ist der Teufel los. Garagen Blues Rock Sinfonien und eruptive Ausbrüche, die von heraus geschrienen Statements aufgeheizt werden.” –
