You may already be aware of the fact that Rudy Trouvé curated, produced and arranged Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung‘s forthcoming 25th anniversary album “Hineininterpretierung – DAAU spielt DAAU”. As well as making the artwork and live visuals, he also put together a promotional video with Fairuz Ghammam. You can watch the result below.
Elko and Jeroen had Yves De Mey as a guest on last week’s Het Kralenspel radio show. Feel free to (re-)listen here:
So here’s the news we weren’t allowed to disclose in the last update: Elko B(lijweert) is releasing his first ever solo album on the 8th of February through Ekster! You can take a look at the artwork, read the tracklist and promo text and, most importantly, pre-order here.
The official record release concert will take place on 5 February at 1 pm (!) at Bosbar. This Saturday, 28 January at 4 pm (!), Elko will already play a semi-improvisation preluding a “displacement of works” by Luciano Mergo at said artist’s exposition at Haecken & Ooghen, Klapdorp 35, Antwerp.
Exactly one week later, on the 4th of February, Rudy Trouvé will play live at the same location for the next displacement of works.
Elko and Jeroen reunited at Radio Centraal this afternoon. Hear the result below.
Although this website has been suspiciously silent for a while, Heaven Hotel’s key members certainly haven’t.
The follow-up record to “Pawlowski, Trouvé & Ward”, which came out ten years ago, has finally been released through Jezus Factory and Heaven Hotel. You can stream it and buy a digital copy here. Cd and vinyl copies are available through Jezus and should soon be stocked in our shop as well.
Elko Blijweert is featured as Elko B. on Ekster‘s eksellent (sorry) second instalment of its “Exo” compilation series. He is currently finishing the follow-up record to “Left Bank Drive” together with Joris Caluwaerts, Simon Lenski and Frans Van Isacker.
Rudy Trouvé has arranged and produced Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung‘s 25th anniversary album. On top of that, he is currently slaving away at the album’s artwork as well as the band’s new live visuals. The release date is set for the 12th of May and will be accompanied by a concert at De Studio in Antwerp.
Never busy enough, Mr. Trouvé also collaborated with Intige Taluure (aka Phlitman & Kang) on a cassette tape which was released in November of last year through Bananafishin’ Records. We will hopefully be stocking some copies soon.
Keep an eye on this website for some very exciting news which I’m not allowed to disclose as of yet.
