Complete line-up Sinner's Day 2011 with Front 242 - Recoil - The Cult, ...Posted on 22/10/11
On Sunday 30 October 2011 Hasselt (BE) will host the best of new wave, EBM, electro, synthpop, post punk, darkwave and industrial. For this 3rd edition the festival will work with 2 stages in the main hall of the Ethias Arena so that visitors no longer need to choose between 2 different halls.
Here's a round-up of the bands playing:
FRONT 242 (BE) - Undeniable the biggest electronic band that Belgium ever was able to export before, during and after (and not thanks to) the New Beat era. Signed nowadays with the Belgian electro label Alfa Matrix they are set for a few more surprises in the next months. The influential Belgian band will celebrate its 30th birthday at Sinner's Day. Happy birthday guys!
THE CULT (UK) - The band became cult itself by melting Led Zeppelin's hard rock with The Doors' mystique and The Cure's dark new wave. If there's one The Cult song that you all know, it's the anthem and million seller "She Sells Sanctuary" which was recorded for the band's second album "Love" (1985). This will be a unique opportunity to see the band live.
THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS (UK) - The Psychedelic Furs were top of the bill in the Club during Sinner's Day 2010. It was their first concert in Belgium since 25 years. They are back now for the main stage bringing a mix between punk and pop.
THE EXPLOITED (UK) - Punk and New Wave, the pair has gone together for years. Since 1980 The Exploited has been the image 'par excellence' of the punk movement with "Punk's Not Dead" being their first legendary album. 11 guitar players, 10 bass players and 8 drummers, we'll see singer Wattie Buchan showing that the band has still enough guts after 31 odd years.
JOHN FOXX AND THE MATHS (UK) - John Foxx was the original singer of Ultravox and was the very first British artist to actually make a complete synthesizer album. Foxx was also the guy who penned "Underpass". Enough said? Well, he also was responsible of Gareth Jones joining up with Mute records.
RECOIL (UK) - Recoil is the project of Alan Wilder, the former musical director, sound sculptor, producer, magician (...) of Depeche Mode. Wilder was also one of the first musicians to work with samples. Live he creates a universe of sounds which you hoped you'd have heard before. Expect the necessary Depeche Mode hints during the live show. This is one of the last shows Recoil will probably bring for a very long time, so make sure to be there.
BLANCMANGE (UK) - Contemporaries of Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, The The and more (they were all featured on the Some Bizarre CD compilation with rare to find tracks or versions), Blancmange brings catchy synthpop presented by their first big worldhit "Living On The Ceiling". In the rest of Europe they scored massively with the brilliant track "Don't Tell Me".
DIAMANDA GALAS (USA) - We thought we had missed our last chance to see her live at work, but behold, there's always Sinner's Day to make us happy. The American diva with Greek roots has an amazing voice, period. Her 3,5 octaves cut through you like a knife. From vocal terror to endearing blues and back. We couldn't have described it better. For the connaisseurs, she also sang vocals on various Recoil tracks. A must see if you are more an eclectic music fan.
KMFDM (GER) - Teutonic sounds will come from KMFDM, better know as Kein Mehrheid Fuer Die Mitleid (or as 'Kill Mother Fucking Depeche Mode'). The band was founded by Sascha Konietzko in 1984. Konietzko literally lives and breathes industrial.
THE MISSION (UK) - Here's another Side-Line favorite (really Wayne!). The band singlehanded helped give gothic a face (Andrew Elderitch being too numb) and got massive MTV airtime with "Deliverance" or yet the beautiful "Butterfly on a wheel". On Sinner's Day they will celebrates their 25th anniversary. The gig will be the only concert in Belgium this year.
KARL BARTOS (GER) - Kraftwerk is half dead, long live Karl Bartos. Expect bleeps and beeps that lay in the line of what he used to do with Kraftwerk. We are very much looking forward to see this Einzelgaenger at work.
VISAGE (UK) - Visage is the brainchild of the remarkable Steve Strange, who not only graced the tabloids for the brilliant tunes he crafted but also for his very chaotic life style. His major hit "Fade To Grey" is still being played worldwide. Let's see what he can deliver us live in 2011.
PATTI SMITH (USA) - This American lady is labeled as 'the ultimate queen of new wave'. Debby Harry was better looking so is said - well tastes differ - but Smith surely was more vigorous. Her most famous songs are "Gloria", "Because The Night", "Dancing Barefoot" and "People Have The Power".
Doors open at 12AM, and the first show will start at 1PM. The last band will end at around 1AM, followed by after party. Tickets are only 58 euro in presale, so head for www.sinnersday.com to get hold of yours!
Side-Line will be present bringing live coverage of the shows via video, pictures, video interviews, tweets and so on. If you have seen our coverage on the Mute 2 Days or on the Depeche Mode auction then you know what to expect. Side-Line will be present with 3 editors. Make sure to lock your Twitter account on #sinnersday.
