31/12/2011, Didier PIETERS

portrait Bizarre was one of the more pleasant surprises of the 2011 BIMfest edition. We witnessed an excellent set from a motivated and tight band! And they have a new album: “a new day”, offering seven new songs and three "2011" versions of older songs: “The Invitation”, “Ballad Of The Grave” and of course “Friends Could Be Friends” which is still a great song. Rest assured, also the new stuff is of outstanding quality! portrait Bizarre offers catchy, guitar oriented pop/rock/wave songs. They are BACK and stronger than ever! Sounds like? I have to mention Placebo, mainly because of the vocals. “a new day” is limited to 520 hand numbered copies and only available on vinyl. I have copy number 349. And you?
