I’m totally excited about these 3 re-releases from the most famous Belgium Alternative Band coming out via Music Mania (Belgium) on the 6th of May 2013.
The debut album were originally released back in 1994 on Island records in a strictly limited edition to critical acclaim (at least in Europe). The music was influenced by Frank Zappa, Tom Waits as also Captain Beefheart. I can just suggest to everybody this extraordinary Album, including such truly masterpieces as “Hotellounge” , “Suds and Soda”Â and “Via”. Nowadays you will have to pay way off more than 100 Euro to get an original copy . I can’t even remember to saw ever one copy (the original cover is just black with a white sticker) and individual numbered. Probably just were released on vinyl as a Promotion copy. Quite logical: This re-release is on golden wax (by the first 1000 copies).
After releasing a CD only in 1995 called “My Sister is my Clock”, they were back with their second Longplayer called “In a Bar, under the Sea” in 1996, which was mixing Jazz, Blues, Rock and Avantgarde elements and was even more sucessfull, including 4 single releases. For me this vinyl should be in silver wax, but unfortunately it’s “just” in clear vinyl
The following up “The ideal crash”Â Â from 1999 was slightly more commercial and the first without theÂ bassist Stef Kamil Calrens which formed the great Bans Zita Swoon. This was also the first Major release via Island records. As the other two Records also critical acclaimed. This re-release comes out now in orange wax (should be in bronze wax).
If you never got in touch with this Band and you are crazy about individual numbered lim. editions, these three records are probably the best Re-releases in the next months.
