Right off the bat, the spirited on-stage chemistry between Mathias Janmaat and Linda van Leeuwen became something special – emanating the kind of gusto we only see in today’s finest two-way rock outfits. A magical synergy, boosted by Janmaats penchant for writing well-crafted, off the wall pop melodies and Van Leeuwens whimsical energy behind the drums . After starting out as a supposed one-and-done conservatory project, Dutch duo Bombay Show Pig has steadily sculpted their compact and crisp garage blueprint into a vibrant collage of catchy rock tunes.
The result is debut LP ‘Vulture/Provider’, recorded at Kytopia – Utrecht’s quintessential candyland for musicians. With producer Simon Akkermans (C-Mon & Kypski) at the helm and Eli Janney (Girls Against Boys, The Rapture) providing mixing duties, Bombay Show Pig finally has a body of work to match their well-earned live reputation. Meanwhile, Mathias and Linda continue to rock fans home and abroad into a stupor, their musical boundaries persistently expanding as we speak.
“The last brick’s laid and it’s open for all.'”
