Well, what to say about Big Boy (Germany)?
What to say is this; What the H*ll is this supposed to look like???

These youngsters have obviously gotten all their fashion(?)sense from a certain Marilyn Manson, showing up in glimmering denim lederhosen, knee high socks, bad hair, and make up like a dead prostitute from the 80's.
So, what about the music? Well, I think the first part of the text is quite fitting again. They play hard, fast rock music, which to me sounds inspired by aforementioned Mr. Manson, and also have a small 80's thing going on. I don't know, it could just be the get up that is playing tricks on me, it was quite hard to focus on the music. The fact that they had a very bad sound didn't help of course, it was very hard to even hear the singer from where I was standing.
On the other hand, you have to hand it to the singer that he had a lot of energy, and really tried to connect with the audience. One time so much in fact, that he fell off the stage! Luckily, we had a very helpful audience this evening, which were very quick to pick him up and get him back were he belonged.

The most memorable part of the show was when the vibrations of a speaker caused a beer bottle standing on top of it to fall off. The bottle made a full salto, bounced against the crowd fence, made a full backwards salto, and landed perfectly in a beer crate standing in front of the stage. Now, some of you might argue that this had nothing to do with the band, and well, you would be correct. Still, it was by far the best part...
