LISTEN TO KEBAB

LISTEN TO KEBAB

Kebab1 I was watching a documentary on Front242 the other day: same old mishmash of old footage and talking heads, really. One of those talking heads belonged to Luc Van Acker (a true raconteur: a man of a thousand stories - someone give this guy a book deal already!). In between anecdotes ("Front 242 said they wanted to kill the audience. I didn't know it was a metaphor so on my first gig with them I jumped into the audience and started whacking people with my guitar. I didn't look up until I stopped at the PA, where the sound guy was looking at me, stunned by confusion and fear.") he started naming good Belgian bands playing in the post-punk era. Turns out there's a lot of them. Good stuff, too. And as it turns out, there's a growing scene hunting those lost tracks down. Brooklyn label SoftSpot has just released "We Live in a System" by the short-lived Belgian band Kebab. You can have the cult classic 'Life, it's a joke' for free. Press play or hit the jump for the download.
