Stereo MCs were awesome

Yesterday we saw the Stereo MCs for the first time at Suikerrock in Tienen. We knew them of course from dance hits like "connected" and "Step it Up". But when vocalist Rob Birch came on stage, we did not expect such an energetic show. Appearances can be deceiving, and 50-year-old Bob may look 70 years old, but he can still pull in the crowds. He looked like a junky on speed with duracell batteries up his behind,running around, jumping and rapping like a 16-year-old.

He continued shouting "Call an ambulance" and I almost did, so intense was his voice. "We took a train and a bus to get here", he said, and everybody was glad they didn't miss their connection.
