TRIGGERFINGER SUPPORTS THE ROLLING STONES 6 JULY - BANDSTAND
Triggerfinger is a fiery threepiece from Antwerp consisting of a trio of real characters: guitarist and singer Ruben Block, drummer Mario Goossens and bassist Paul Van Bruystegem – aka lange Polle or Monsieur Paul. Now, it takes some grit - and style - to be dubbed “the loudest band in Antwerp”, and in some ways the moniker is a testament to their past efforts; which have built up a considerable and loyal following in the Lowlands. (If you have any doubts about the powerful and multidimensional sound they can command, just give their live LP Faders Up (2007) a spin). But sights are now being set further afield from this great Flemish city, especially with the release on Excelsior Recordings - on the 15th of November 2010 - of their third album: All This Dancin’ Around, the follow up to the successful What Grabs Ya? And 2004’s Triggerfinger.
This is a band that have developed the hard way; years of touring the clubs, pubs, festivals and dives of Europe have bred a fierce and uncompromising sound. And a fluid one too, able to turn a melody or a phrasing on a sixpence, and one more than capable of showcasing the individual personalities to their best effect, in whatever situation. They aren’t just a loud and grandiose rock band either: moments of broody introspection are a forte too, and can be heard in tracks like All Night Long.
