The Dillinger Escape Plan



It often remains a touching and adorable scene, when The News or a documentary shows images of partying old people in a rest home, who not without effort sing along with their hands raised with "Let the sun into your heart" or "Eviva España", assisted with unabashed enthusiasm by accompanying staff. After which the old folks may join in for a piece of flan or an apricot tart. What will it be like in 2045, when a batch of elderly people arrive who in their youth listened to the insane noise of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN? Wheelchairs flying from one end of the auditorium to the other? Rollators kegging apart the cakes on the dessert table? Hip prostheses getting tangled in knots? You should listen to The Dillinger Escape Plan's first LP, via one of the well-known streaming platforms. The record is called "Calculating infinity" (1999). This is no longer rock'n roll, this is a steely whirlwind that reduces storms like Katrina or the Galveston hurricane to a wet fart. Knock and smash, shout and rant and death or the gladiolas are just some of the familiar duos that mosh through your head upon hearing so much noise. However, those who are open to a mathematical mix of cutting guitars, chaotic drums, jazzy textures and a vocalist who sounds like his thumb is being cut off unanesthetized with a potato knife experience the best tonal orgasm of the day time and time again. The Dillinger Escape Plan is touring the world this summer with original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis to confront everyone once again with "Calculating Infinity," played in its brilliant entirety. At our place, that carnage on your auditory system will continue on Tuesday, Aug. 6. The staff of WZC Ter Durmen and WZC Ter Engelen have been invited to prepare themselves a bit for 2045, the fire department will be present to fish out local residents who have jumped into the Durme to be relieved of this racket and you, you best buy a ticket quickly if you do not wish to let this chunk of musical genius pass you by.
