    This week in SoundCHECK: The Black Cult

    After releasing their second EP on Tender Records, the vinyl label of Tim Knol, they are expanding rather explosively. Playing shows with the Popronde, Incubate, Zwarte Cross, 3FM, Here Comes The Summer and more. Their contagious mix of garage, punk and pop will leave you shaking and aching for more. Just like your alcohol addiction. Rock and roll how it's supposed to be played. Fast, loud and in your face. It's said that The Black Cult is becoming the next big thing in the Dutch garage world. There is only one way to find out, grab your leather jacket and go see for yourself.

    Podium.TV met with the band at home in Groningen first. After a short while, the men leave to Podium Asteriks in Leeuwarden. The Black Cult is well prepared, they even get a haircut just before the show. Podium.TV also follows the programmer of Podium Asteriks. He names 18 reasons to watch The Black Cult. Among others, the band has broken the record of playing live for 363 continuous hours. In addition, what has their logo in common with the logo of Podium Asteriks?

    About this program:

    Before a musician on stage is, the written press, composed, rehearsed and just before the gig the time comes for the Soundcheck!

    Soundcheck is an music on Podium.TV. We are visiting a wide variety of musicians from the north. (Cover) bands, DJs, Dutch singers and singer-songwriters; musical northern Netherlands is discussed. Where they rehearse and how this is going to? How do you write a new song? And how does a CD presentation?

    So we end up in old garages, nostalgic rehearsal rooms, but also in professional studios and tasty busy music venues. Additionally, you can every week to enjoy a wide variety of video clips and a classic "golden oldies" from the old box.

    Tip the editors when you know a great band and want more of it as a groupie know.
