Review Ronald Says - ‘No Milk Today’ - “Automatic Sam Sure Doesn’t Need Milk”
A few years ago this band blew me away when saw them for the first time. Half a year ago they released their new album Sonic Whip which sounds great and even made it into my 2013 top ten. Finally I can see them play again.
It looks like even more people left and by now the small club is half empty. It doesn’t bring the band down at all. They play a tight set with many songs of the new record. Their solid set shows they have outgrown the beginner’s stage long time ago and definitely are the most professional band of the night. Their songs are heavy, with plenty of dynamics, psychedelic elements and variation. Why bands like this aren’t drawing any bigger crowds in this country is beyond me. They are one of the more interesting rock bands around here. So a festival like this, definitely is useful. Go see Automatic Sam for yourself if you get the chance and pick up a copy of one of their records. You won’t be disappointed.
Automatic Sam on the Watt from Pedro show!
It’s a great honor that one of our biggest musical heroes and influences, mr Mike Watt, plays our songs in his radioshow. In fact, he plays our music more often than the DJ’s on Dutch national radio do. And that means a lot to us. Thank you, mr Watt. Click here to listen to his show.
People in Europe, do yourself a favor and check him and his great band The Missingmen on tour. The tour starts this Thursday in Paris. We’re in the audience this Saturday in Brugge. See you there! Tourdates: Mike Watt + The Missingmen / third opera europe tour 2014
