El Fatso sounds like a bromance between Joshua Homme and The Big Lebowski: a mix of acapulco-shirts, motoroil and white russians. The music revolves around the riffs of frontman Tom Schreuder, who’s guitar has alledgedly never been used without overdrive. The Rotterdam based bandmembers describe their style as Rock ‘n’ Roffa: bawdy, intelligent and sexy. They get their inspiration from the work of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Millionaire. Music for a nighttime drive on the highway: speeding tickets guaranteed.
El Fatso won the audience award of Eendracht Festival 7.0 and their first single ‘Rodion’ was the most listened track on Reddit. At Roodkapje they will present their debut EP full of brand new tracks.
Special Guest 1: Lilith
Three opinionated lasses with a healthy punk attitude and backback full of different musical backgrounds. Together they form the band Lilith. Inspired by the riot-grrrlmovement of the nineties, but not afraid of some strong pop melodies. They describe their style as the lovebaby from a lesbian relationship between Brody Dalle and Taylor Swift.
In 2018 Lilith released their ‘Good Girls Swallow’ EP and played shows in Gebr de Nobel, Patronaat and Paradiso. In 2019 they will release the follow-up EP, appropriately titled ‘Bad Girls Spit’.
Special Guest 2: The Mutations
Founded on the steps of Rotterdam in 2011 as JR & the Mutations, the band played on various venues like the finals on de Grote Prijs van Zuid-Holland, the opening of Grand Central Station Rotterdam, support act for Mini Mansions. Their self-titled album, produced by Henk Koorn (Hallo Venray) was released in 2018.
The Mutations constantly experiment with different influences ranging from Led Zeppelin, Santana, Frank Zappa and even classical music. Their style can be described as seventies-oriented rock with an underlying psychedelic texture. The Mutations present their music as a narrative and entices the listener to join their journey.
