Mathias Delplanque is an electronic music composer and an improviser. He released around thirty records and plays regurlarly with different artists from various musical backgrounds.
Guillaume Ollendorff produced two album under the name of Tsé and played with different bands. He also plays guitar occasionally with the Hyperion Ensemble and the composers Ana-Maria Avram and Iancu Dumitrescu.

Uniform formed in New York City in late 2013 when old friends Ben Greenberg (Hubble, The Men, Pygymy Shrews) and Michael Berdan (York Factory Complaint, Drunkdriver, Believer/Law) realized they lived on the same street. Their impulsive collaboration quickly yielded Our Blood / Of Sound Mind and Body single. The six tracks that comprise the equally abrasive but more refined Perfect World have been coming together between tours and work ever since.
n Perfect World, that machine is firing on all cylinders. The guitar is run through a cheap ’80s preamp marketed to metal kids. The drum machine is equally no-frills, an Akai XR20 that Greenberg says “most people wouldn’t want to keep around.” These humble components are combined with noisy synth and Berdan’s profound howling to form something much greater. Post-punk, synthpunk, and industrial traditions are borrowed from as needed, but the constraints placed on the process mean the result is unique to Uniform.

In the mid-to-late 1980s, Stephen Lawrie and his band The Telescopes, along with The Jesus and Mary Chain, Loop, and Spacemen 3, were at the vanguard of a new sound, which emphasized feedback-drenched guitars and melodic vocal melodies. Their songs “Kick the Wall,” “7th # Disaster,” “The Perfect Needle,” and debut LP, Taste, helped galvanize the nascent “shoegaze movement.” And bands like My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Slowdive, and Ride—just to name a few—are unimaginable without Lawrie and his fellow Telescopes.
The Telescopes went on to release their classic self-titled LP on Creation Records in 1992—and, in the process, Lawrie reinvented himself as a master of song craft and a musician whose creative restlessness wouldn’t allow him to settle on a single style. The Telescopes, in addition to soaring electric guitars, included acoustic guitars, pianos, delicate percussion, lush strings, and introspective and moody lyrics.

QUJAKU are a Japanese psychedelic band formed in 2013 and based in Shizuoka, Japan. Their music is gothic dark shoegaze, which reminds you of The Horrors, but it also contains emotional expressions that Japan uniquely has, leading you to feel Scandinavian post rock like Sigur Ros. Aesthetic but also destructive, roar but also silenthce, QUJAKU are a rare newcomer that has two opposite elements at the same time. They released their debut album, ‘ZyouK’,from So I Buried Records in October 2015 and a new EP, ‘Keiren’, in April 2016, heading to deeper psychedelia.

An album presenting us with the treasures of the repertoire of French oral tradition (Belgium, France, Quebec).
It’s world music!
The songs have been shaped along with time and on the way, the singers will add their personal grain or grain of voices.

Rotterdam-based artist Janneke van der Putten will perform her newest music project ‘Aurora’ which encompasses hypnotic noise, keyboard, field recordings and dream-songs. Breathtakingly beautiful and eerie stuff which forms a very intense listening experience.

My Own Holiday is a Rock n Roll/Blues Duo from Southern California. The bands broken-down approach is electrifying live, very throwback blues/classic rock and reminiscent of the nineties. Bands like this are formed in garages, basements, and cross-country trips. Drunk or sober music has been written, played, created, and recorded for anyone who wants to listen… Brought to you by My Own Holiday.

Grégoire Tirtiaux is a musician whose musicianship doesn’t stop at style or genre, skilled for improvised music and jazz, he has kept on learning music from other cultures and added other musical point of view to his abilities. He has met and worked with master musicians in gnawa music, indian dhrupad music, romanian and other gipsy musics, arabic music; voodoo and other west-african musics, and many others.
The numerous projects in which he participates as a leader or sideman stretch from solo to big band, mixing written and improvised music. Looking for  unheard sounds and  unexpected music, in the same time modern and permeated with traditions, he plays actual music deeply rooted and speaking with souls.
In his baritone sax solo, Grégoire Tirtiaux mixes various techniques such as circular breathing, percussive playing, diphonic reeding, saxuachi, multiphonic harmonics, double sounds, sax humming, sub baritone, quarter tones, slap, and many other acoustic effects.

Convulsif is a collective and band project originally initiated by the
bass player Loïc Grobéty. The band focuses to an enriched tension between
composition and improvisation in powerful sounds and experiments at the
limits of styles and musical languages. With its special and outstanding
instrumentation – a classic rhythm section and a heavy amplified, treated
violin & bass clarinet – the band goes deep in the sound of the actual
rock scene and mix different tendencies to a new unknown conglomerate:
Doom, Drone, Black Metal and Noise are played with the means of conceptual
improvisation and imposed themes. All colored by a very uncommon

As a child, Toni Cutrone aka Mai Mai Mai followed his parents around Europe and the Near East, ending up in the south of Italy, assimilating different cultures, atmospheres and sonorities of the places he was involuntarily taken to. These sensations and sounds were intense enough to leave indelible traces in his music, but Roman noise omnivore Cutrone own decade-plus experience in the Italian underground has doubtless played a role as well.

All the best.

Dear all,

Please find here my offers of the week: Ian Hunter & The Rant Band, Merzuga, Rattle, Basic House.

Don’t hesitate if you want to set up a gig for one of these bands/artists.

Availability: late June 2017
Territory: Belgium

MERZUGA (France)
Availability: From early March 2017 onwards
Territory: Europe

Availability: Between 23rd and 26th November + from mid March 2017 onwards
Territory: Europe

Availability: From mid March 2017 onwards
Territory: Europe

Whilst his achievements during his first decade as a recording artist would have been more than enough to ensure his iconic status, Hunter has never been one to coast on past glories. Indeed, in the past dozen years, he’s made a series of riveting albums that stand with his best and most resonant work, while making a decisive return to touring, delivering incendiary live performances that show his fire to be burning as brightly as ever.
He was already a veteran of the London music scene by the time he joined Mott The Hoople in 1969. With Mott, he recorded four iconoclastic albums – “Mott The Hoople”, “Mad Shadows”, “Wildlife” and “Brain Capers” – by the time they hit international stardom with the glam-rock anthem for a generation, the David Bowie penned, “All The Young Dudes”.

« Twilight minimalist Rock  »  » Dark-Ambient « .
A man, a bass, a drum machine, the distant memory of a desert, of a village in the desert, traces of astonishment  facing the mirage that appears in the mineral aridity of the desert … Somewhere in between group Suicide and the Gnaws rituals there is the music of Merzuga , repetitive, dusky and providentially arid.

Rattle are a drumming duo based in Nottingham and comprised of Theresa J Wrigley (Highs) and Katharine Eira Brown (Lows). Both musicians also play drums for two other well respected bands, with Theresa in Fists and Katy in Kogumaza. Rattle play minimalist rhythms that remain both hypnotic and danceable heavily thanks to the delicate vocal melodies which accompany their beats. Their sound recalls This Heat or ESG whilst remaining uniquely their own.

Basic House distils various permutations of electronic music down to their pure source and the result is an eerie and striking ambience full of sonic drama. Matching a bristling use of negative space with clearly defined event horizons, Bishop’s music continues to explore what a post-techno world sounds like when it comes unmoored from its’ defining structure–a regulated beat.

Thank you for your time and reading.

I hope to hear from you bas soon as possible.

All the best.

Hello everybody,

Here are the bands and artists I’m booking this week.

I hope you are interested in setting up a concert for one of them.
Please get in touch with me for all necessary info and details.

Availability; 10th and 11th February 2017
Territory: Europe

Availability: April 2017
Territory: Belgium

MANU LOUIS (Belgium)
Availability: 11th and 12th December
Territory: Sweden, Finland

Born in Cambridge and raised in the Fens, Richard Youngs began making music at the start of the seventies. His early work centred on the family piano. When this was sold in the late seventies, however, the classical guitar and cassette recorder became his instruments of choice, along with anything at hand that made a sound. From then on he has played any number of roles with bands such as Astral Social Club, Concrete Hedge, No Deserts, Jandek and Future Pilot A.K.A. Recent collaborative work with Andrew Paine, Heatsick, Kawabata Makoto and John Clyde-Evans also show him as a highly social musician.


Since escaping the confines of a small seaside town and burrowing themselves into the UK’S DIY scene, Spectres have swelled into an uncompromising beast. Harnessing the negative reactions from baffled crowds, and finding influences in the more depraved bowels of guitar music (Sister- era Sonic Youth, A Place To Bury Strangers’ total sonic annihilation and Royal Trux’s squalid, filthy noise on Twin Infinitives, to name just a few) as well as harsh electronic experimentalism, the band have managed to crossover into territories where noise music is usually never mentioned.

2015 saw the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Dying’, the reaction of which lead them to spew their noise all over Europe and back again, whilst finding the time to record an alternative James Bond theme, release one 7″ every single day as part of the Howling Owl & Sonic Cathedral ‘Record Store Day Is Dying’ campaign as well as preparing ‘DEAD’ the newly announced record which is a total reworking of their debut, with contributions from Mogwai, Factory Floor, Loop, Hookworms, Richard Fearless + many more, released in March.


Following once again the good old rule of associating two extremes instead of choosing the middle path, Manu Louis collides the exotic and glamorous Pop Music of his youth with the naff sounds of the native Western Europe folk trash he always did his best to ignore (brass bands, Euro-Dance, Industrial Trance and old-one-man-synth-wedding entertainers…)
In October, he released a first single (7′ vinyl) under the berlin label New Pangea (premiering on of his up-coming album described by Felix Kubin as «really fun(k)y and clever and playful music and I’d be happy to hear it in the aquarium of the deep sea club anytime. »
Kermesse Machine is a mountain of plastic glasses in the streets the morning after, a tropical digital marching band, a guy giving all he’s got at Karaoke because there’s nowhere left to sing, a gypsy virtuoso playing synth with a trumpet sound.
Since 2015, he performed solo more than 100 times everywhere in  Europe and Asia accompanied by a crowd of electronic instruments and video projections.

Thank you.

All the best.

Needle and the Pain Reaction is an energetic dark groovy sonic guitar
punk band. More then 15 years active in the underground scene, they’re
known for their DIY approach, their strong live reputation, their
legenday gureilla concerts and European and Canadian tours. Influenced
by bands as The Jezus Lizard, Metz, Helmet, Afghan Wigs, TAD.

Last year, seminal English experimental rockers The Pop Group released
their first album in 20 years. Citizen Zombie saw the band teaming
with mega-producer Paul Epworth, known for his work with fellow UK
artists Adele and Coldplay. Now, however, the band has returned to
their roots as they set to work on their follow-up, re-teaming with
Dennis “Blackbeard” Bovell, producer of their 1979 debut LP, Y.
Bovell is an iconic producer who’s worked with the likes of Fela Kuti,
The Slits, The Thompson Twins, and others. His contributions to Y
helped launch The Pop Group into the politically charged, avant-garde
rock provocateurs that rose to critical acclaim in the late ’70s. 37
years later, he’s back in the studio with the group, and he’s not
alone; Hank Shocklee of the Bomb Squad (Public Enemy) is also working
on the new record.

These guys grew from Cucumelo spores on the humid underside of cow patties in Corrientes, Argentina. They make shamanic cumbia folklore with an energy that sprouts from whatever enters their bloodstream.

Jason Kahn is a musician, artist and writer. He was born 1960 in New York and grew up in Los Angeles. He re-located to Europe in 1990 and is currently based in Zürich.
As an electronic musician, vocalist and drummer Kahn collaborates regularly with many musicians, both in improvised settings and in the context of graphical scores which he composes for specific groups.
Kahn has exhibited his installations in museums, galleries, art spaces and public sites internationally. These works focus on the idea of space: the conceptual and physical juncture points, its production and dissolution, and our relation to it as a political, social and environmental medium.
Kahn’s other activities include sound pieces for radio, film, dance and theater. He has also designed numerous CD, LP and cassette covers. As a writer, his work has appeared in books, magazines and as liner notes to many audio publications.

Thanks for reading.

I hope to hear from you very soon.



Ce soir aux Ateliers Claus (Bruxelles)

Posted in Uncategorized on septembre 26, 2016 by debloque

Bill Orcutt (USA) & Okkyung Lee (KOR) + Rodrigo Amado (PT) & Chris Corsano (USA)

Bill Orcutt & Okkyung Lee (USA/KOR) + Rodrigo Amado & Chris Corsano (PT/USA)
two live double bills on a nice Monday night.

2 double dates between 4 great players

The first meeting is between Bill Orcutt (USA) and Okkyung Lee (South Korea). Individually these players have focussed on an idiosyncratic approach to their chosen instruments and technique. Okkyung is one of the most singular voices to compromise the cello’s ‘classical’ origin, whilst Orcutt has spent many years developing a unique abstraction of traditional guitar blues.

Chris Corsano (USA) is a unique drummer, with his own unique style. From explosive to mesmerizing to abstract to rough. We could listen to him for hours and would recommend someone to make an action doll out of this figure. On 26th September Chris will be teaming up with Portuguese saxophonist (alto, C melody, baritone, and tenor) Rodrigo Amado (PT) who specializes in free-form, composition-in-the-moment jazz. With diverse musical interests, he explored how improvisation is handled in other genres.
