Wallace Vanborn – Free Blank Shots


Wallace Vanborn – Free Blank Shots
Pias – 2010
Rock/Stoner
Waardering: ****

The first Flemish additions to the Dutch Courage Month are the three amigos of Wallace Vanborn. Founded in 2005 they quickly stormed the gates and only two years later barely missed winning the Humo Rock Rally and were selected to represent Belgium during an international rock competition. Immediately after this, and without a record to promote, just an EP called I Am Hell recorded in 2006, the guys jumped on to a ship or plane and headed out to the United States to tour the promised land for about two weeks. I guess they felt it was time to record an album; which they did soon after. The record fits snugly in the tradition that started a flood of bands after Queens of The Stone Age conquered the world with Songs For The Deaf. It is damn energetic and very accessible stoner; playful, rhythmic extremely strong and with convincing vocals. Danceable, sexy and damn tasty!
