96-02-24 Carcer Molochi - Intestinal DiseaseAnother gig organised by Frederic Driessens (with practical help Christophe Delplace & Koen Vanthournout); presenting 5 Belgian bands…

‘Intestinal Disease’ had played at the V.V. before (94-01-30). The guys in this grind/noise-core band from the Diest area were: Philippe ‘Boezie’ Buze (vocals), Dave Houtmeyers (drums), Kris ‘Hazie’ Hazenbosch (vocals) and Rudy Pans (guitar/bass). Bruno ‘Sloef’ Mastyn had joined to play guitar – his first gig with the band. They did a few 7”s: Raped Inside Your Fault, a split with ‘Brutal Mutilation’ (93) and another split with ‘Violent Headache’ (94).

‘Cornucopia’ (a grindcore band from Mol) were Bert Dexters (bass; sometimes Dennis ‘Tyfus’ Faes), Erik ‘Smerik’ Minnen (vocals), Jim Faes (guitar; later drums) & Jens Ruts? (drums). Jim ran the Ear Smear tape-label. Erik and Bert also did a distro and tape-label called Moshi Moshi that released a bunch of ‘Cornucopia’ split-tapes (e.g. with ‘Karma’, ‘Rubbish Heap’, etc.) and -7”s (e.g. with ‘Intestinal Disease’ – the idea for this one grew here; ‘Cornucopia’ recorded their tracks with Jim on drums, Robin doin’ guitar and Filip for extra vocals). They did some more shows the following years…

The first line-up of ‘Carcer Molochi’ (94-12-31) consisted of Erwin Degryse (guitar), David Stubbe (drums; ex ‘Neuthrone’), Danny Suffys (bass), Johan Sys (vocals), Michael Maes (guitar) and Inge Cappoen (vocals). They did their debut at the V.V. on 94-12-31. Since they were locals and some of them volunteerd at the Vort’n, they we regularly asked to do gigs (95-03-05, 95-09-16, 96-01-20) They played pagan, back-to-nature crust-punk (“a mix of ‘Antisect’, ‘Hiatus’, ‘E.N.T’ & ‘Antischism’…”, I wrote in my ‘zine). They had recorded their demo somewhere in 1995. At the time of this gig here Bram ‘Lawaai’ Calbrecht (R.I.P.) had replaced David on drums.

‘Les Schtroumpfs Alcooliques’ (‘L.S.A.’; “the alcoholic smurfs”): were a band from Merchtem (where bassist Gerd Van Hoof helped organise gigs at the local youth-centre Ifigineia); the others in the band were Mike Du Bois (drums & vocals), Raf Du Bois (guitar; R.I.P.). They played (poppy/melodic) punk and had a demo out. In ’97 Tim Leten of Filth Ear distribution (also in the band ‘Karma’) released Screams From Belgium, a 4-way split with ‘Les Schtroumpfs Alcooliques’, ‘Muggles’, ‘Hirudo’ & ‘Honey Honey’. They also played on 97-02-28. Later Gerd & Mike started ‘Sunpower’.

‘Noise Reduction’ had already done a show at the V.V. (95-02-11) They came from Edegem, near Antwerp, and played crust-core. The band consisted of Kurt van den Eynden (vocals; also drummer of ‘Karma’), Stefaan Simons (guitar), Tim Wouters (bass) and Rudy Verhelst (drums). They did a demo and in 1995 they had a split-7” (with ‘Deadlock’) out on a Japanese label.

‘Cornucopia’ still had their first drummer – who couldn’t keep the pace… ;-) But that was a requirement for this musical genre! I remember Erik literally throwing himself…

‘Intestinal Disease’s first guitarist, Tom Peels, was more of a metal-man. Rudy en Dave started the band in ’92. ‘Hazie’ and I joined. Steve Houtmeyers (Dave’s older brother; who was in ‘Agathocles’ & ‘Hypnos 69’) also played guitar at one timepoint. Dave himself never played for ‘Agathocles’. I quit late ‘96 or early ‘97…

At that moment we had indeed a few EPs out. Later we did a split-LP with ‘Rot’ and in 2000 Counting The Damage. That one is best known to the audience (3000 pressed both in Belgium and Brazil).

    Dave Houtmeyers of ‘Intestinal Disease’ did actually play in ‘Agathocles’ for one weekend, hahaha. Steve, Dave and me rehearsed once in Dave and Steve’s parents garage for two gigs, if I remember well. Burt (drums) couldn’t play those gigs for some reason, so we did them with Dave on drums. Big fun!!! Also Rudy of ‘Intestinal Disease’ played bass for Agathocles’ at some gig when Steve had broken his arm. So I played guitar/sing, Rudy on bass, Steve (with broken arm) on main vocals and Burt on drums. That gig happened in Germany, Burt playing on a totally pink drumkit. Again tons of fun, hahaha. This all must have been around 1994…
