Den Hemel, 20-03-04 (review Jan Lissens - part 1)

"Den Hemel" literally means "Heaven" and, last saturday, for a large number of enthusiastic Monkipunkers it was. I was saddened by the fact that it was, for me at, the last gig I'd see until the next European tour, but fortunately, Boo! obliged by making it last.

The travelling trio were as good as ever, and they played a number of songs I hadn't heard on a gig for quite some time (to wit, "Franki", "Hosanna" and "OO AA". "OO AA", by the way is the song that my five year old refers to as "aapmuziekje" which translates as "monki music". Since it comes out of the mouth of the proverbial babe, I guess whoever chose the name of the music, chose it well.

The Boo! entourage (if you can call Marcel an entourage) was, as always quite busy before the show setting down water and beer bottles, sticking playlist to any odd place and so on. Actually, sticking playlists to any odd places is something Marcel apparently quite enjoyed, since he could not stop and even did it during the show. My advice would be: if you stick a playlist to the floor, use LARGE characters ;-). I also wondered where I saw his pair of jeans before, and then it hit me (the thought, not the jeans): in about every Boo! gog I ever saw. Must be his lucky pair.

The audience was behaving in a very odd manner. The front half of the audience, which naturally included me (I'm one of those usually glued to the stage) was dancing and rocking and thoroughly enjoying themselves, while the back half was just standing there, hardly moving, in a sort of mildly amused haze. I strongly suspect the owners of "Den Hemel" of having mistaken floor wax for glue while buffing the back half of the room.

I could go on and on about the music, the twenty-four octaves Chris can vocally reproduce, Ampie's ability to play a zillion instruments at once and still look like he's having the time of his life, and Boney Leonie's percusionistic prowess, or about a great new song called "I Lyk Your Typ", but I won't...

Instead, I will take you on a Monkipunk tour of that great and forgotten form of poetic pastiche which is, of course...

po...po...po...poooooooo... the Limerick! (sound of applause and crowd going wild)

As the great Willy himself put it: without much further ado, I present to you the latest product of my totally spaced out cerebrum:

BOO! THE LIMERICK BALLAD...Or as Boo! would put it BOO! - THE LYMERIK BALLUD

Den Hemel, 20-03-04 BOO! THE LYMERIK BALLUD

Chris, a South African SyngerHis performance, oh how did it lyngerHis danced o'r the stagein a Monkipunk rageWhile rapping his base guitar with his fynger

His giant friend, named Ampie so aptlyPlays numerous instruments adeptlyAnd when he gets a chanceHe plays 'em all at onceSo that all other musicians seem ineptly

There is also the drummer named LeonWho drums like no other this eonDuring a show in ArlonsHe overheated his batonsSo Marcel had to cool 'm with freon

Marcel, it should well be mentionedAs manager rarely gets any attentionThough he does a great deal of workHe has a very odd quirk:He wears jeans from another dimension
