(demo's & beginning bands)

Soon "Signal to Noise"

Soon: Roaring, explosive guitars dipped in a melodic structure, a careful mix of fragile and solid fragments to prepare a powerful sound, a spoonful of frenzy and a fair amount of passion and drive. Spiced up with some Fugazi, Kashmir, Reiziger, Sonic Youth, ...

The Dallas Explosion "This is The Dallas Explosion Baby"

The Dallas Explosion is not a band, it's the solo project of Geoffrey "Dallas" Hautvas. He's the one who writes the songs, records them (with the precious help of few friends), finds the gigs, the musicians and why not a record deal!
