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)
