Today is our national holyday and we cannot finish it better than with a few strong Belgian acts.
Admiral Freebee, alias Tom Van Laere was here already in 2005 and 2010 and twice he succeeded effortless in convincing even the most sceptical visitors. Following the arithmetic series, the Admiral should only have to make his appearance next year, but what do you want? The man just released a very nice new CD, and we could not resist the call of “The Great Scam”, as the record is named. Seldom was the title of a record chosen worse. No scam at all, on the contrary: raw rock songs with an undiluted blues feeling: that is what is presented here. An absolute welcome return of one of our better songwriters.
