Pink Room - Bengal

PINK ROOM (noise punk/garage trash - Ghent)
Pink Room emerged from the Belgian underground around 2018. They want to conquer the world while crushing your skull with dirty noise punk.
The trio (Bart Cocquyt, Jelle Lefebvre and Glenn Janssens) from Ghent is known for its filthy and all-consuming bulldozer shows where no man comes out unscathed.
In March 2021 Pink Room released their sophomore album, Putain Royale, written in full lockdown period and put on rancid legs in the legendary rehearsal room 'In De Ruimte', a kind of Electric Ladyland for deranged sewer rats, one of the coolest underground venues in Ghent.
Putain Royale notably sounds even louder, bawdier and bolder than its predecessor, Zum Kotzen.
This time Pink Room went into the trash cellar with producer Rodrigo Fuentealba (Fifty Foot Combo, Manngold, Motek, Fuzztones,...) and the whole lot was mixed by Micha Volders. Furthermore, quite a few pleasantly disturbed spirits from the underground scene of Ghent dropped by to make their contribution: Lee Swinnen (Tubelight, Double Veterans), Bart Baele (Tubelight, Speedozer), Cis Deman (Stake), Sam De Clerck (Brorlab), Rubben (Vonnis), Tijl Van De Casteele (Whorses) and Jonas Calu.
Putain Royale puts Pink Room one step higher on the ladder, but they haven't forgotten their dirty basement sound.

BENGAL (Grrrl-post-punk - Brussels)
Bengal doesn't take detours when it comes to stir your sensitive string with coldwave, garage and psychedelic melodies. A grrrl-post-punk crafted by Mamacita singing, Joana at the guitar, Marta behind the drums and Laurent playing bass, delivered during hectic live performances.
Their debut studio album, shiv, was released in March 2020.

+ DJ François Du Painlait (rock/electro/wave/punk - Scratch+Snuff, Ancienne Belgique)
