exposing unsigned or lesser known bands to the masses…or to the three people that actually read this. today’s band:
local band to: gent belgium
riyl: grandaddy, the raveonettes, the notwist
superlijm (pronounced: “superlame”) is the band of “boy next door” pieter-jan delesie, whose songs are inspired by grandaddy, bran van 3000 and other great sounds from the 90ies. in his songs superlijm tries to return to that decade, when belgium’s national goalkeeper michel preud’homme still had curly hair and edwin van der sar was only a rookie. back then it was cool to paint t-shirts. and superlijm was already trying to save the world by singing his songs, wearing nothing but speedo trunks and a towel around his neck. “i wanna be a cowboy” and “don’t dare to touch my milkyway” already were big hits in his head. 14 years later superlijm feels it’s time to save the world from an extraterrestial attack, by building a supersonic wall of sound. his first ep was released in may 2009 by collectief debonair.
