THE BIG NASTY

Design by Vincent Slegers. Picture by Till.

As a solo musician I bring original songs, rooted in the tradition of American music - in particular that of the North Mississippi Hill Country Blues.  My music is characterized by a rhytmic  guitar style, often with an emphasis on slide guitar, a distinct voice and stompbox accompaniment. Lyrics are to the point, bare stories about life as is, about joy and love that was lost, gamblin' and paying the cost.

 

 

As of late, I've got the pleasure to be collaborating in a side-project, being The Big Nasty - which is a garage Blues trash duo I have revived with Charlie Harpoon (harmonica, UK) . I'll be touring with this project February 2017 and late May 2017.

 

 

Doing this full-time, I've had to pleasure of touring through most of Europe - which saw me sharing the stage with friends and other musicians alike, such as Tim Holehouse (UK), Dylan Walshe (IR/USA), Long Line Down (DK), Hack Mack Jackson (DE), The Freeborn Brothers (PL), The Redemption Colt's (BE), Gipsy Rufina (IT), Reverend Deadeye (USA), Hollowbelly (UK), The Devil's Trade (HU), Johnny Campbell (UK), ....

This page is dedicated to my side-project, being The Big Nasty! For this project, I've teamed up with Charlie Harpoon (UK) to revive the Big Nasty, with which we'll bring you a rockin' portion of Garage Blues Trash Galore. We recently recorded in England, and shall be releasing a few singles to show for it.

 

 

'Welcome to The Big Nasty - European Trash Blues duo Vincent Slegers & Charlie Harpoon. You'll be happy to see this if you know these 2. If you don't you need to sort your pathetic life out and pay attention. The rumblings of their first release is due early 2017 to coincide with a tour - from Feburuary 15th till February 28th. Holding down moody boogie Blues LOUD from guitar and harmonica and a couple of Kick drums, coming to a town near you.'

 

Here's a few teasers to get you hip to what we'll be doing.
