Last nite at De Plaats Schreeuwende Erectie in Amsterdam: There were 3 bands, we were in the middle. The first band was called Hazel. They opened with an old Tommy Roe song, “Hooray for Hazel” —a 2 minute bubblegum-pop song. Then played it again. Then again. Then again. They played it 20 times in a row—each time faster, more ferocious, more intense, more insane. Encore? Make that 21 times in a row. We def didn’t want to go on after them—and by the crowd's reaction to our set, they completely agreed.
Off to Oslo! Club Skrik Mannlige Kjonnsogan. Hopefully it will live up to its name.
We spoke to the lead singer (Kirk, from Germany) and asked him about how/why they decided to do Horray For Hazel as the only song in their set. He said, “We like the song”
