Eyeshadow: Repo Man + Smudged

Repo Man + Smudged

Eyeshadow

A classic from back then with a band from now: Smudged, chaos combo from Rotterdam, will get you pogoing to their raw, repetitive krautrock with hypnotic synths and fuzzy guitar, after Alex Cox’ punk classic Repo Man. “The life of a repo man is always intense.”

What is a ‘repo man’? The answer is as simple as it is just: if you don’t pay off your car, you have to give it back – to the ‘repossession man’. In this case, none other than Harry Dean Stanton (Bud) and trainee repo man Emilio Estevez (Otto).

After the film a high energy live show by eclectic Kraut collective Smudged, hailing from Rotterdam.
