Triggerfinger - All This Dancin’ Around

Yesterday, did Stockholm got visited by no less than Within Temptation who played in a nearly sold-out Arenan here in Stockholm, but more on that tomorrow. Today we check out the support act which was a pleasant surprise. A fiery threepiece Dutch band called "Triggerfinger" consisting of a trio of guitarist and singer Ruben Block, drummer Mario Goossens and bassist Paul Van Bruystegem. Now, it takes some grit - and style - to be dubbed “the loudest band in Antwerp”, and in some ways the moniker is a testament to their past efforts; which have built up a considerable and loyal following in the Lowlands. (If you have any doubts about the powerful and multidimensional sound they can command, just give their live LP Faders Up (2007) a spin). But sights are now being set further afield from this great Flemish city, especially with the release on Excelsior Recordings - on the 15th of November 2010 - of their third album: All This Dancin’ Around, the follow up to the successful What Grabs Ya? And 2004’s Triggerfinger.

This is a band that have developed the hard way; years of touring the clubs, pubs, festivals and dives of Europe have bred a fierce and uncompromising sound.

Todays tune is the title track of "All This Dancin’ Around". The album was recorded at the famous Sound City studio in Los Angeles, where Nirvana’s Nevermind was produced. Recording sessions, under the aegis of producer Greg Gordon (a man who has turned his talents to the sounds of Oasis, Wolfmother, Slayer and Soulwax amongst others). Enjoy!
