Do you want to boogie? The Goon Mat & Lord Benardo in France and The Netherlands28-01-2018
The explosive rhythm 'n blues meets boogie-mayhem from The Goon Mat & Lord Benardo is rolling on. With the release of their debut album this month through Voodoo Rhythm Records the Belgian duo tours throughout France and Netherlands the next weeks..
The Goon Mat (aka Mathias Dalle) is an old-school blues guitar player with the style of a young Elmore James and the rawness of Iggy and the Stooges. He’s toured the world playing his very own brand of “Trash Boogie”.
The other half of the duo, Lord Benardo (aka Fabian Bennardo) brings blues harmonica to a new level with screaming amp feedback and stage-rumbling contortions - a true crazy man! These boys don't just open a show and ease into it - they set the g'damn house on fire the moment they hit the first chord, yelling "Do you want to boogie?" - to which the crowd responds “Hell, yeah!”
What follows is an hour of adrenaline and alcohol-fused primal BOOGIE mayhem. This ain’t cutesy blues - this is testosterone-driven, hard-hitting drinkin' and dancin' music - and it certainly isn't for the underage. I shit you not...these dedicated bluesmen are out to raise hell. Mothers, beware of your daughters 'cause these boys have ideas... and they ain't pure.
