Dick Laurent take you on a journey all the way through multiple genres of rock music: 70s, psychedelic, Blues, Funk, Jazz, Metal, and Post Rock influences are woven into the complex numbers that are never copied, but damned inspired! Describing in a few words what these guys present you with is rather difficult, but there is one word that you can strike out of your vocabulary when listening to Dick Laurent: boredom.

Like life, just when you think you’ve got their music figured out, it changes. They are characterized by their creative variety of the arrangements and the enthusiastic playfulness. Winkler’s rolling and solid drums, Binder’s driving and grooving bass and Krieg’s frisky guitar: fans of real live music will love them! No vocals are needed to escort you through the tracks; it’s Dick Laurent’s drive that takes you for a ride. It’s pushing and thrusting, rocking and rolling. To draw an animal analogy you would have to use a whole zoo: the monkeys are screeching, swinging from branch to branch; weasels are running fast with light and tiny feet; a lion is roaring threateningly and the range of colour of hundreds of chameleons is on show: A live extravaganza you can look forward to.

Dick Laurent were founded in 2013 by Harald Binder (bass), Raphael Krieg (guitar) and Rudy Kink (drums), who met in the Basel music scene and pretty soon noticed that something clicked. In 2014, their first LP, with four fancy inventive tracks, was released, recorded in the sixteentimes Studio in Basel. On two tours through Switzerland, Germany and Belgium the band gathered their share of live experience (and enjoyed some sardine-tin-ambience in the stuffed Toyota Corolla). Rudy Kink decided to move on with the Sons Of Morpheus in 2015, but has been succeeded by the excellent Stefan Winkler on drums with whom they recorded their second album "Hello" in April 2017. Since the beginning of 2018 Gilles Duitilh on keys has replaced Harald Binder on bass, and so the story of this genius trio goes on.

Treat yourself to this!
