BEEhivEs! by Matthijs

Some of you may have noticed it was (on myspace.com) For you others, Here are BEEhivEs!

With our own Eva and Amel (part of the live band) in the ranks, this group will certainly be something you like (if you are open to 80’s pop, dance music) Their music sounds very promising and I’m certainly looking forward to their future releases and gigs. Visitors of last TAZ festival Oostende, had the honour to see them already.

Band members are:

Mirko Banovic: Bass (Arno, Arsenal, Tom Pintens), Sam Gysel: Drums (Arno), Eva – Tshiela Gysel: Vocals (Zita Swoon), Naomi (mademoiselle) Schatteman: Vocals, Amel Serra Garcia: Percussion (Zita Swoon), Frederiek Donche: Keyboards (Mudflow, Dirty Dancing) and David Bradzlava: Guitar

(An official biography is expected soon)

2. RTBF documentary
About a month ago this video popped up on youtube. It contains footage of an RTBF documentary about Radio Candip, a Congolese radio where the Gysel-dad worked at.
