The pörno kings

The Sex Toys just released a new EP. This past weekend they played various gigs to promote it and they will continue that in the future. I caught 'em yesterday in De Blokhut, a cosy bar on the Oude Markt in Leuven.

The were the only band to play, but it was fun. They're pretty good. Like a Belgian NOFX (which is weird, cause Gino's Eyeball is already the Belgian NOFX). They take influences from other bands too. For instance, they played neat covers of Teenage Bottlerocket, Zatopeks, the Misfits and even Motorhead's R.A.M.O.N.E.S. Cause you can't pass the Ramones.
The set was a good one, fast, some ska-ish parts, but consistent punk rock. The new songs sound a lot better than the old songs, a lot more "Sex Toys"-ish rather than "insert generic comparison band"-ish. Backing vocals were pretty much lacking due to intense playing and partying all weekend, but the show itself didn't suffer from it. They're funny, they brought their Kempen fanbase into the bar and tried to start a party but that wasn't a great succes.
Well, it was a Sunday night so that's what you get.

They play Leuven again 2nd of March in Vleugel F, check it out.
