Concerning

Aksak Maboul, the Belgian phenomenon launched at the end of the 1970s, was responsible for two cult records that marked an entire generation (or maybe even two) of musicians: Onze danses pour combattre la migraine (Eleven Dances to Tackle Migraine) in 1977 and Un peu de l’âme des bandits (A Little Bandit Soul) in 1980. The duo, composed of Marc Hollander and Vincent Kenis, created a kind of experimental rock, combining influences from every kind of music imaginable - with a predilection for screeching harmonies, deeply satisfying melodies and hooks and a surreal sense of humour. In 2014, after a 30-year hiatus during which Marc Hollander essentially focused on his excellent Crammed Disc label, he released the L’Ex-futur album with singer Véronique Vincent, which was written and recorded at the beginning of the 1980s but never finished. Its success with the critics convinced him to play live again. Since then, the group has toured several times and a new album is planned for Spring 2020.
