Thu 9 Feb > Rebel Up! @ Fumaça Preta & Yôkaï, Les Ateliers Claus, Bxl

This thursday 9 Feb a special concert night @ Les Ateliers Claus.
Double concert for lovers of psychedelic tropicalia punk & afro jazz

Fumaça Preta: An psychedelic tropicalia noise fuzz rock quartet via Venezuela, Brighton (UK) and Amsterdam. A Deep throat organ over fuzzy funk drumming, then passionate ranting in Portuguese – Pupilas Dilatadas lays out its stall right from the start: a mad love for 1960s Braziian psych rock stirred up with European humour. The wild harmonized guitar chords remain unleashed till four minutes in, and the track is an impressive mix of discipline and righteous craziness. “Toda Pessoa” is even better, a concise and coolly configured mesh of bass and guitar lines strutting towards a chorus whose dumbness verges on perfection. The music shifts easily from pomp rock riffs to lounge moments, with space echo and other FX splashed generously about. Espelhos Fundidos is a casually brilliant throwaway: a high bassline, cello and bass clarinet taking turns on melody, while waves of insane laughter and echo crash over the top. This is record collection rock, if you like, but from people with very special collections. It’s amazing that the whole steaming, tropical concoction has emerged from a tiny Amsterdam studio.

Yôkaï: is pure tribal jazz. They play groovy composition in the style of Ethio master Mulatu Astatke, but also with more quiet moments where Fred Becker exchanges his sax for the ney flute. All in all a pleasant and broody afro-ethio atmosphere. For Les Ateliers Claus they will perform a special set where they” work around tribal compostions.
