CERAMIC HOBS

[uk]


Ceramic Hobs are a punk band. Not your usual one though. Some of their members are known to be in and out of mental hospitals. Being in a band must be one of the few jobs in the world in which struggling with your mental health is regarded as an advantage. Certainly in the Hobs, because it's one of the reasons why they are so different from their peers. Think of what would have become of Warsaw when they would have met on a knackered carnival party. And then we're not even talking about the music. "Many of the ?statements? on Hobs records are somewhat hysterical in tone and are supposed to be read or heard with one eyebrow raised, like Roger Moore." or "The Ceramic Hobs are happy to live a long way from any city, are not post-modern, do not own mobile telephones, do not take cocaine, assert no intellectual property rights and have no wish to compromise their post-ironic entartete kunst to reach a bigger audience of halfwits." The roots of weird punk lies in Blackpool, U.K., 1987.

Ceramic Hobs is een punkcombo. Niet echt van de doordeweekse soort echter. Onder hun leden bevinden zich enkele psychiatrische patiënten. Denk aan wat er van Warsaw zou zijn gekomen, mochten ze ontstaan zijn op een zatte carnavalsavond. En dan hebben we het niet enkel over de muziek. "The Ceramic Hobs are happy to live a long way from any city, are not post-modern, do not own mobile telephones, do not take cocaine, assert no intellectual property rights and have no wish to compromise their post-ironic entartete kunst to reach a bigger audience of halfwits." Weird Punk is ontstaan in 1987 in Blackpool, U.K.

Les Ceramic Hobs est un groupe punk. Mais pas du punk comme on le connait. Parmi ses membres il y a quelques patients psychiatriques. Jouer dans un groupe doit être une des rares activités dans lesquelles être mentalement instable est considéré comme un avantage. Pensons à ce qu'il y aurait pu se passer si les membres de Warsaw s'étaient rencontrés sur une boum de carnaval. "The Ceramic Hobs are happy to live a long way from any city, are not post-modern, do not own mobile telephones, do not take cocaine, assert no intellectual property rights and have no wish to compromise their post-ironic entartete kunst to reach a bigger audience of halfwits." Les racines du weird punk se trouvent à Blackpool, U.K., 1987.
