Netherlands - Luna Kafé - Full Moon 14 - 12/14/97
Uit De Sloot
Uit De Sloot
Their own label?
The name of this band is taken from the Dutch proverb "Je moet geen oude koeien
uit de sloot halen", which means: "Let bygones be bygones". Uit De Sloot make
some 70's punkrock without the influences from the last 20 years. Their
sound is a mixture of The Clash and The Ramones. All songs are sung in
Dutch. The only thing they took from the years between 77 and 97 is the DIY tradition.
They have used a well known punk voice from the answering device as a sample, way
cool thing to do.
The songs are both funny and serious, even within one song (Hacker Jack). The last
song on this album is called Punk Rock Nummer (Punk Rock Song), yeah, like the one
from Bad Religion. When I heard this one for the first time it sounded a lot like
the song from Bad Religion, but according to Jack & Maarten from Uit De Sloot
that is only a coincidence.
If you're into the old 70's punk, this is one album you'll like.
