Falling Man – Belgium (Ghent)
A four piece band that would never sound like it does without The Fall, David Bowie, Sonic Youth, Hank Williams, Captain Beefheart, Wire, Smokey Robinson and The Rolling Stones, and doesn’t sound like any of them. Two guitars constantly in love and at war, a beat both solid and crooked, emotions served raw. Falling Man has built itself a solid live reputation and have supported bands like The Horrors, Ted Milton’s Blurt, Caspar Brötzmann Massaker. On their second album ‘Ghost’ the band presents a collection of songs where guitars and illusions are shattered, driven by riffs and noise that penetrate the heart, just like the overall theme: loss. The underlying melodies and beats serve as soothing or fiery actors.
