PRE ORDER out 31st March – 180G Vinyl With CD
Mauro Pawlowski and Hamster Axis pay a vocal jazz tribute to Peter Houben of Benny Zen, Mitsoobishy Jacson and Nemo fame. On Vinyl with CD. Legends paying tribute to legends. For us it is a big honour to find out that two of the tracks are ones that we released on the first Benny Zen album ‘UFO Conspiracy Believer’. This collection helps highlight what an excellent songwriter Peter Houben really is… and also what a great job Mauro and Hamster Axis have done of interpreting the songs… If you are new to the world of Houben we hope this makes you investigate his back catalogue!
Lift Your Load – LIVE
The Hamsters and Mauro found each other in many different ways at The Peter Houben Songbook: both Equally insatiable.
In their new musical adventures and a soft spot for girls in hot tubs as well as live recording on tape. After a very well received live performance at CC Luchtbal (Antwerp) It seemed a logical next step to Put That pop / jazz / indie / grunge / rock / whatever sound of the Hamsters and Mauro on an album as well. And, voila, here it is!
Seeing the songs or Mitsoobishy Jackson and Houben (s other bands and projects zoals Nemo and Benny Zen, one knows what to expect. But do add a delicious sauce Mauro Pawjazzski to that. The result is an exciting and adventurous album with Mauro in great shape on vocals and guitar.
The Jazz Cats of the Hamsters got to know each other quite some time ago on the illustrious De Coninck Square in Antwerp. Mauro accepted Their one off invitational at the CC Luchtbal where clause the Hamster crew runs an ongoing series of concerts with surprising guests, hosting already Roland van Campenhout, Pascal Deweze Gregory Frateur (Dez Mona) … and more to come!
