On a sunny south-European beach four years ago the idea of forming a true glue rock-n-roll band with a vicious punk attitude became a reality - The Accidents were born.
D. Vacuum decided to salute their own and their friends lifestyle in the lyrics referring to the three punkchords Sex, Drugs and Rock-n-Roll. Ever since then the band has been spitting out raw and delicious little 7" vinyls, six of them so far. Not forgetting the killer s/t 10" and the full length debut “All Time High” (2004), which kicked and rushed in reviews all over. The band members have been playing in different punk bands since the late 80s, like streetpunk vigilantes Voice Of A Generation and the hailed underground cult legends,Genocide Superstars among others. But it wasn't until earlier this year they finally found out that The Accidents was IT! The gorgeous sunny beach of four years ago is now a filthy whiskey drenched dancefloor.
This handsome Accidental belgian blue-machine consist of: D. Vacuum (lead vocals/guitar), Fred Tank (bass), Kid Kreole (guitar) and Ric Rebel Jennings (drums). Their combined matchweight is nothing you wanna mess with, but if you really wanna feel like you've been knocked around the head, trying to analyze their sound will leave you dazed and seeing stars.
What about the sound?.. What about it? Well, some say Hurriganes, some say Teddy & The Tigers. Others refer to New York Dolls, or why not Slaughter & The Dogs or Misfits. Who cares who they sound like?! I’d rather think about WHAT they sound like, and I can’t figure it out!
They have already been on a rock-n-roll mission all over Scandinavia and Europe, cleansing the stage of those bands that make you wonder why they exist. Now its time for them to take the highway and wipe it till it bleeds.
‘Cos if you really wanna hear how they sound when they start to get warmed up, go to a show and get a hint of how hard this shit is as their sweat turns to steam from the first bleeding chord to the last drink. I haven't heard anything like the Accidents before, and I dare to compare them to something some old gangstarockers have tried to purify a long time ago. Pure punkrock evil is what they deliver even in the shivering love-smelling song “Old Town” or “Kings of The Night”. These guys are born again drunks, so put on your dancing shoes tonight! When the attitude of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll turns into a lifestyle, the soundtrack of that sordid life is heard deeply engraved in every one of their tunes. So surrender yourself to the attacking fists of The Accidents - the scavengers of punk.
"Imagine when you finally get home from a night out and you are totally barfly. You think about getting some sleep but then you turn on, and turn up The Accidents, and then you're on it again"
The Accidents sure are capable of turning those shitty moods in life into something glorious. But they don't do silly songs that insult you, or try to give you a laugh for a moment. They deliver what affects you, and are out to tear you apart with classic tunes. Cause there is no first aid kit to disarm, nor salvation, when the heymakers of The Accidents hit your veins with punk rock values far beyond the concept of normalicy.
