Amsterdam BeatClub at De Nieuwe Anita:
great music, fab cocktails, cool dancing & party-time!!!

live: Oh! Gunquit (UK)

Oh! Gunquit is a London-based 'rumble-bop trash blitz freak-a-billy' five-piece that formed in 2011 after neighbours Tina Swasey and Simon Wild met each other while frequenting a North London vinyl-only sweaty cellar club DJ night. After an energetic pogo competition they decided to create a group blending their love of wild garage punk, exotica, raw rhythm'n'blues and surf-trash that's been described as a cross between The Cramps and The B-52's. The band name derives from a twist on a Native American-named outpost on the east coast of the US, a former artists' colony, and where a chief elder once 'cast all guns to the sea'. Oh! Gunquit is know for delivering 110% hi-energy live shows as it's their last day on earth. 3 lp's & 6 killer 45's have been released so far. This will be their first ever gig at Amsterdam BeatClub and it gonna be WILD!!!

dj's Ir. Vendermeulen & Yves of Destruction

The Backdoor Society (It.) & The Dirteez (Fr.)
dj's Ir. Vendermeulen & Pallino spinning the hot wax!

The Backdoor Society (It.)
The Backdoor Society was formed in 2017 in Piacenza (Italy). Their music is strongly influenced by the Dutch Beat sound represented by bands like Outsiders and Q65, with echoes of wild R&B à la Pretty Things, by whom they were inspired to write their own originals. After 2 albums (both with 5 stars on Shindig magazine!!) and 2 45s, the band is on tour to promote the upcoming lp.
"Clearly a band that lives, breathes and embodies the essence of 1966 Nederbiet" (Shindig! Magazine)

the Dirteez (Fr.)
Voodoo Rock'n'Roll from Marseille
The Dirteez is a Rock'n'Roll band existing since the late 80s. They are from Marseille and have gone through many lineup changes and decades of enraged live music. Dirteez gigs are a deliberate electric communion, a worshipping mass where sacrifice is never in vain, a fest where rock'n'roll is celebrated with force, conviction and just what you need of novelty to get the crowd going for a burst of energy! Wild Cat Lou (guitar and vocals) and Clint Lhazar (vocals) have been there since the beginning. They are now accompanied by Tchoupy (bass) and Jeremy (drums). For better or worse, they are often referred to as the "Marseille Cramps"...
