VVR015 Front - de portables - John Terra380
We’re very proud to announce the arrival of our new CD and (a portables first!) LP entitled “John Terra”. It bears 8 songs. Opener “John Terra” is a fierce hardcore hitchtrumental. “It’s better to Turnhout that to Fade away” is a warm and cozy campfire singalong song. “The Honorable Man” is a strange mix of Can and Milk Inc.

You can grab your album for free at the de portables album release party, including a live show from de portables and salvador for only 10 € (een zot batje) in Kortrijk on 10th of November.

You can order a CD or LP now (13 € + shipping) by mail (albums go out on 16th of November)

Or you can get the CD/LP in your favorite record store (including itunes and amazon but also your local vinyl farmer)  from the 16th of November onwards. Read more for back sleeve and liner notes :-)

Exclusive: new recording of Thom Yorke / Flea Super Band

When the news broke last week that Thom Yorke of Radiohead fame and Chili Pepper Flea were about to start a new super group, our hearts started to pulsate at a never-before-seen speed. And this wonderful news just got better!

A music industry insider (who we cannot name by name) sent us a direct message via the microblogging site Twitter with a link to a recording (!) of this amazing new collaboration by these two Gods of modern music. So here it is, a studiomuscle exclusive, the new brilliant epic, tentatively titled Creepinification.

Before we kick off to the Gentse Feesten and the eternal post-gentse feesten blues we thought to show some love. We compiled a little summer mixtape for ya all, containing our current favourites at the studiomuscle headquarters (a large room waiting for a paintjob). Feel free to burn it on a cassette player and play in your car stereo. Looove…

For the setlist…

Is it a hit? Is it a plane? No! It’s a present for Birdland Lafontaine!

“Gij Geile Rotsac” is the latest creation of ‘de portables’ and was inspired by Bertrand & Willeke’s latest creation “Castor” (aka Beaver). You can listen to it here. It was recorded in “Nolby Surround 5.hiss” for an ultimate Lo-fi experience.
