Last week Eva, Kapinga and Stef were interviewed by de Standaard about gardens and their way of outdoor living in the summer.

‘Een tuin, een tafel en een goedgevulde koelkast, meer heb je niet nodig voor een onvergetelijke zomerdag. Al reserveer je het best ook wat goed gezelschap. Twee dames en een heer van Zita Swoon Group, bijvoorbeeld.’ 

translation: ‘A garden, a table and a full fridge, that’s all you need for a unforgetable summer’s day. Although you better invite some good company as well. Two lady’s and a gentleman from Zita Swoon Group, for instance.’

Interview and pictures here.

Here are a bunch of reviews of the last Nekka Nacht with Thé Lau (with the Scene) as curator.
Stef (with Eva & Kapinga) did two songs together with the band: Ik rangschik (Je Range) and Rauw, hees en teder (Raw, hoarsely and tenderly) The reviews are very mixed so if you were there, let us know your opinion!

It has been a while since I’ve been to a Zita Swoon concert… and in those past months the ZS-line-up changed pretty radical.

Joris Caluwaerts, who has been with Zita Swoon since the making of ‘A song about a girls’ left the ZS-flock (to boldly go where no Joris has gone before… although I think Milow’s European succes has something to do with it – We’re still looking for a confirmation).

If you saw pictures of the past gigs, or even better: If you were there, you know two new musicians were added to the line-up. There’s no new piano man, no, Eva and Kapinga are taking care of that, but we do have:

Simon Pleysier on guitar. You might now him from Wawadadakwa or Zeker Weten, but he also wrote and performed music for Het Paleis (video).

Hugo Boogaerts brings the sound of the saxophone back to the ZS-stages (so you might train your “back then, when Benjamin was …”-quotes), he also plays the german flute (in dutch: dwarsfluit). Hugo was a guest musician on ‘Remember to withhold’, the closing track on Zita Swoon’s 2004 album ‘A song about a girls’. Back in the 90’s Hugo was a member of the Wizards of Ooze.

So yes, we are going to miss Joris and all his wonderful (magical) works on those black and white keys… but a new dawn peeped already over the horizon, so check the tour dates, and take your horses by the  bridles.

Next gig: Saturday, August 8th, Casa Blanca festival, Hemiksem (near Antwerp) (It’s a free festival)

I’ve been on a holiday, so this one’s with a week delay.


The Belgavox concert aims to reinforce solidarity, dialogue, respect, community and cultural diversity in Belgium.

Stef, Saule and Eva brought an extended version of ‘My bond with you and your planet: Disco’ where Saule sang a french part in the middle.
Eva also performed ‘Automatic’ with Sioen.

Carte Blanche – On the wings of a rabbit, day 1 by Marc


An old fashioned welcome…
Aarich smuggled a Decap organ into the hall/bar of the venue, and it played all the classic 50’s and 60’s tunes you (or your parents) might have danced to back then. Aarich also wanted to add some Zita Swoon songs to the computer operated ‘machine’ but time got in the way (it would have been nice).
