Mushroom Attack Logo-1

Meaning bandname: You can see two meanings: An atomic nuclear mushroom cloud explosion in the sky or some magic mushrooms exploding in your head.

History: After E.N.E. split up, Maynard, Robbie and Piet decided to start a new band with the help of Juul on bass and Janine on vocals. We did our first gig in our squat the WNC on 13.08.89 as HUMAN ERROR. We changed the name from REALITY ATTACK into MUSHROOM ATTACK. After several tours and two split LP’s we decided to split up after our disaster UK tour in June 1992. There were just too much tensions in the band.

Lyrics: Against the system…

Catweazle / Grimskunk (Can) @ De Glasfabriek, Groningen NL 3rd June 1994   Leave a comment

Lots of friends in the crowd this night, which explains the abundance of laughter, goofy jokes and dumb remarks in this home-town gig at the ever so colourful squat behind the main central train station in Groningen, “De Glasfabriek” (old Glass Factory). From ’93 till about ’98 tons of shows were held here, from sxe to crustcore and other variants of HC punk.
Quiet a lot of darkness here, too much to actually film properly, which results in lots of out-of-focus scenes. In combination with the disco-light effects this can lead to surreal images. Be warned!
Fifth show in the “new” line-up, so still some searching going on concerning how to communicate with the crowd, how to explain what a certain song is about etc. Some tightly played songs, but also several missed cues and mistakes; so not exactly a great set.
Before the Chain cover we do a request for Geert to step forward, ask him to sing along and do backups. But the dude is late and not at the venue yet hahaha!
Since Catweazle as a band was totally not into smoking, I wasn’t too enthusiastic about the show poster with the smokin’ dude, but after seeing the Canadian Grim Skunk folks I must admit it fit well: tons of ganja were consumed that night…
About 80 people attended the show.
