Psychodelical rock’n’roll is a genre that dominates the independent scene for a decade and a bit. Some of the modern representatives are now leading and full of the largest concert venues around the globe (Ty Segall, Oh Sees, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard), while many others are still waiting for “their place under the sun”.
One of the most talented younger genres of the genre is The Moonwalks of Detroit, and they started to work in 2014. So far they have released one EP, a couple singles and one album, and in late January 2018 another LP for Stolen Body Records (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Dan Melchior, Al Lover …). The band mostly collaborated with Jim Diamond, the legendary Detroit producer responsible for the recognizable sound of bands like The White Stripes, The Dirtbombs, James Leg, The Sonics, and there is no doubt that Diamond helped to hear this young band outside Detroit. Others have done their great songs in which apart from psychedelic guitars, pulsating fused bass and tribal rhythms of drums, you can discover pieces of folk music, as well as genres related to psychedelic rock like shoegaz and dream-pop. The Moonwalks are able to play the genres and make the final product a pot-rock or pop song sparkling with the brilliant guitar work of the head of the group, Jacoba Dean (real name Jacob Bielaczyc).
A trio featuring two girls in charge of the rhythm (Kerrigan Pearce – drums + Kate Gutwald – bass), and one young man for vocals and guitars (Jacob Bielaczyc) starts his second European tour at the end of January. During the past, they visited the state of the European Union, but this time they come to the Balkans.
The Belgrade concert will be on Sunday, January 28 @ KC Grad. The whole event will be called Psycho, and the Moonwalks will also play the domestic trio Dogs In Kavala.
Tickets are pre-sold at the bar of KC Grad and in pub Brod (November 29th 36): by the end of December 500 dinars, from January 1 700 dinars and on the day of the concert 1000 din.
