Unstoppable, unclassifiable, unmarketable and hardly manageable: burn your life vest, forget about your safety-belt, throw away your crash helmet and hold on for dear life: Your favourite white knuckle Dutch band Maison du Malheur are back!
Front man JP Mesker owns a record collection that runs from Louis Armstrong to Tom Waits and all the way through to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. He started Maison du Malheur in the year 2010, initially as a solo/singer songwriter project. Within four years, his ‘project’ had turned into a wild rhythm-n-blues-jazz-jive band, that played hundreds of gigs for over a hundred thousand enthusiastic festival goers, sold thousands of albums, and saw their music being incorporated endorsing globally a Dutch bestselling beer brand (yes, Heineken).
Come 2015. Time for a new album. Stomping Ground isn’t just a record, and it certainly isn’t an act. This is music the way music was meant to sound and what it was meant to do: make you feel good. A tonic for the troops, a relief to the ears, a balm for the soul and a cure for the heart.
