Even though we had to bring you this news much earlier (this is like old news for most of you) We think the flyer says it all. The other news is that MusicMania will release a limited edition LP of music from Dancing with the Sound Hobbyist. Only available at independant recordstores in Belgium (maybe also in Holland) who participate that day.
More info about recordstore day can be found here.

Humo released 4cd’s with their selection of the best Belgian music made in the noughties. Zita Swoon songs: Hot hotter hottest, Hey you, whatshadoing?, I feel alive in the city, and Stef’s duet with Neeka, Don’t hold me back.

“Dit najaar komt een verzamelalbum uit; ‘To play, to dream, to drift, an anthology’ is een dubbel-cd met een selectie uit de hoogtepunten van hun studioalbums en een 2de cd met vele onuitgegeven extra’s, gaande van het prille begin rond 1991 tot vandaag.”
(press release, sept 23 2009)

” This fall Zita Swoon will release a compilation album. ‘To play, to dream, to drift, an anthology’ is a double-cd set containing 1 disc with the highlights from the band’s studio albums and a second disc with unreleased extra’s, from the very beginning around 1991 until today.”

Podcast: Kamil and the Beatband by Marc

It’s been over 15 years since Zita Swoon -back then known as A Beatband- had it’s first release (Jintro travels the word in a skirt). Like almost any band, A Beatband made demo’s that predate their first official release. With kind permission of Stef Kamil we can offer you two songs from “the big 46 tape” by Kamil and the Beatband. This demotape was made in 1992. The following musicians appear on it: Sander Bruyneel, Steven Bruyneel, Bas Deriemaeker, Aarich Jespers, and Stef Kamil Carlens.
You’ve might have witnessed the band’s evolution through rock, dance, electronic, and quiet acoustic music… but at the beginning, there was blues.


Hangover in the Laundry (3,9MB)

L’Amour n’est pas avec moi (7MB)

p.s. The second song is a TC Matic song which was released on their album Choco (1983)… and it’s a nice way to remind you of the Arno session (with a.o. SKC), next monday (nov 17) at the Amerikaans Theater (sold out) and live at Radio 1.
