Hellvete - Puik III
Today, exactly 10 years ago, on 5 Feb 2006, I played my first Hellvete solo show at the legendary Freaks End Future record shop in Antwerp, opening for No Blues Steen (rip), Dan Decalut, and Gart & Seekatze. The shop, ran by music guru Carlo Steegen, was at the time the centre of the Belgian and the world wide underground scene. A truely inspiring place who’s support for local and international underground acts was beyond! All hail to Carlo for supporting my early musical endeavors by offering me a place to play live and even releasing some of the earliest Hellvete stuff on his Audiobot label! Efforts like that is what keeps it going!

The recording of the show was made by Jelle Crama on a handheld cassette recorder and later released on his own “bootleg” label PUIK, describe by himself as “a little label i started to regularly release live shows and retarded situations + local bands. packaging is done way simpler and quicker than what i do for my DRAMA label. if theres only a number on the packaging, then its a bootleg from a show i went to, first tapes contain shows of can’t, fat worm of error, mouthus, hellvete… these bootlegs mainly are totaly raw unedited tapes with sometimes annoying sounds from people at, going to or leaving the show.”  Thanks to Jelle for archiving this years back!

And now it’s here for you to grab… if you’re interested… and want to go back into the future… where you discover that not much has changed but little has stayed the same…

 

In the meantime…

Eiderdown Records just made their complete catalog available on bandcamp. “Stuffed With The Down Of The Eider” by Gonzalez & Steenkiste and the split-tape by A Story Of Rats and Hellvete are both up there for a free stream or a $5 download (you can pay more if you really want…).

In 2012 I made a soundtrack for hand-made Dreammachine. It was released by Taping Policies as a web only release and it went with a video by Jef Mertens. Now the soundtrack is up for grabs at the Dreamachine SoundCloud. Thanks to John Smoke! Gaze into the light!
