Humo.be posted their review of Wait for Me yesterday. Unlike the first part could suggesting it’s very possitive.
What we need is schooling for the children / What we need is fairness in trade / What we need is transparent governance’: neen, het keihard intrappen van zeer wijd openstaande deuren wordt niet gemeden op ‘Wait For Me’, de nieuwe Zita Swoon.

SKC and cycling by Matthijs

An interview with Stef about cycling can be found in this weeks Humo.
Here are two quotes (dutch):

Stef Kamil Carlens «Ik heb vier fietsen: mijn koersfiets, een bakfiets om te winkelen, een chopper voor de lol en een oude koersfiets als ik snel in ‘t stad moet zijn. Ik probeer zo weinig mogelijk de auto te gebruiken. Groene jongen, hè. Als ik voor een korte afstand de auto moet nemen, voel ik me al schuldig.»

Stef Kamil Carlens «Als het mooi weer is en ik moet ergens naartoe, ook al is het in Leuven of Gent of Brussel, dan neem ik de fiets. Ik ben zelfs al vanuit Antwerpen naar Kortrijk en Brugge gereden. Twee jaar geleden speelde ik met Zita Swoon heel veel op zomerfestivals: toen ging ik altijd met de fiets. ‘s Avonds keerde ik dan wel terug met de camionette. Zomaar vertrekken voor een tochtje doe ik nooit: dan voel ik me schuldig dat ik niet werk, snap je.»

While we were sleeping (5) by Marc

It has been some time since our latest item, isn’t it? Here’s what got stuck in our antennas:

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.

February 16th (that’s tuesday) you can see Kapinga and Eva in “in de keuken” (In the kitchen), a cooking program on Canvas.

Humo gives Zita Swoon a 10 out of 10 for their show at Rock Werchter. In their latest issue they talk with Stef and give a us a little but great review (yes again).

Translation of the review and interview will follow (soon)

Rock Werchter report by Marc


Studio Brussel had a video interview with Stef this afternoon:

  • He liked the Montreal Jazz festival (july 1st).
  • Stef doesn’t want to play at werchter’s main stage because it doesn’t fit their music, and likes the Pyramid Marquee because of it’s intimacy.
  • Neil Young’s the only artist he wanted to see tonight.
  • His favourite Zita Swoon-mood drink: Cuba Libre.

There’s a backstage interview with Stef in the Report 08 section of the Rock Werchter website.

Here’s how you get there: Go to the homepage > choose the “Report 08” tab > Dag 2 > click Zita Swoon in the Movies-column.
Stef talk’s about:

  • How he got there by bike. Stef try’s to do this for each Belgian festival gig. Last week it took him about 4 hours to get in Genk (a 120km ride).
  • He had a bit of a hangover as a result of a night out with Tom Barman.
  • Now Tom won’t be replaced they chanced some of the arrangements. Joris got a lot more work on his hands. Now the arrangements are less rock and more reggae.
  • His ideal preparation to a gig:
    – a quiet backstage where he can listen to some Son House or Muddy Waters-like blues,
    – having a drink,
    – time to warm-up his voice and arrange the clothes,
    – being alone for a while
    – no interviews 😀

Different sources (Humo + MySpace Bart) announce a Marconi session for Zita Swoon on the 5th of march.

What is it?
An intimite concert recorded by Radio 1 at the Marconi Studio.

Apparently, last week there was a contest on the Humo-website where you could win tickets (10 x 2)… I have no idea if – and where – other tickets will be available… but i guess Radio 1 will have it’s own contest on Volume 1 and Exit  (last week they had a contest for the marconi session with Gabriel Rios, Jef Neve and Kobe Proesmans at february 26th).
