There’s a joke in #Singles about struggling bands that say they’re big in Belgium. I used to promote a band that really was: Portland’s hardcore heroes known as Poison Idea. They had a small but rabid following here, and just like Belgian sour ale, a huge fan base in Europe. And like punk rock eventually did, the style is gaining momentum with the masses. This one is called Oud Bruin and it’s made by VanderGhinste. It’s tart, refreshing, and eminently memorable, just like good punk rock. Follow this link for one of the best covers of all time.
