“WE FIGHT AGAINST SEXISM IN ROCK MUSIC”

DIEPENBEEK - If you weren't keen on AC/DC with Axl Rose, you'll soon have another chance. June 17 BACK:N:BLACK are coming to Hookrock in Diepenbeek. An AC/DC tribute band consisting of only women. Guitar player BB and her four friends are doing so well in this that drummer Phil Rudd has already congratulated them. By: Mark van Luyk
-----------

During the week, the five ladies are being good girls in offices or as teachers near the Swiss mountains, but when the weekend comes, they put on their high heels and fishnet stockings to tour Europe with AC/DC's music, still a pretty masculine repertoire. “We started in 2010 with a few friends says BB, but in 2012 I kicked the rest out of the band because they forgot about the essence—which is passion for music. I have been an AC/DC fan since I was a teenager, and even though it may not look it, it's quite a challenge to learn to play all these songs well.” BB has played guitar since childhood. "In school, we were given the choice between art and music. I chose classical guitar, but soon found it wasn't loud enough for me so I went electric!"(Laughs)

There are many ACDC tribute bands. What makes you different?
"Many tribute bands do their best to put down an exact copy of the original. Wearing the same clothes and doing all the same moves, dragging big canons and bells on stage. But no matter how hard you try, you'll never be the original. That's why we do our best to pay homage to the original, but not try to copy them. We play the music as ourselves, as fans, not as replacements.”

Have you ever met AC/DC?
“I have met Angus Young once, but that was before I was in this band. Drummer Phil Rudd has told us he thought we were really good. He found out about us through his daughters who were fans. Brian Johnson's nephew once invited us to a party, so he must have heard about us somehow! A little bird told me Brian heard about our show at Bon Fest in Kirriemuir and wanted to know how we did. He wished us well (“Well, good on them!”) which is great! (Laughs)

A while ago there was an uproar on social media about Axl joining AC/DC…
"I went to the show in Switzerland and had very mixed emotions about it. I was very disappointed about his behaviors on stage. He just walked around as if he didn't really care what he was doing. For someone who claims to be a big fan of the band he could have shown a little more respect."

Does the band have male groupies?
“Nope. Maybe that's something we should work on. Sure, I realize that our looks help in making some guys enthusiastic for the band. I suppose we do look slightly better than 60 year old men. But as a woman, you need to work twice as hard to prove yourself in a male-dominated rock world. If a guy plays a bad guitar solo, the excuses are usually, ‘Oh, he's had a few drinks too much’ or, ‘Oh, he probably just had a bad day.’ But if a girl does the same, it is ‘because she's a girl’. That's why we are on a double mission with BACK:N:BLACK: fighting sexism in rock music and convincing more girls that they, too, can play.”

Hookrock, Lutselusstraat, Diepenbeek with on Friday, June 17th inter alia BACK:N:BLACK and Justina 'Lee' Brown ft Morblus and on Saturday, June 18th inter alia Boogie Beasts, Eric Sardinas & Big Motor, Big 'Daddy' Wilson and Erja Lyytinen. More names and info on Hookrock.be
