Knack has a kind of special about the Belgian rockscene. Tom is talking about the dEUS-rehearsal room.

  • They're currently rehearsing at Klaas' place.
  • The have to warm it with a stove that needs wood every three songs
  • It's a mess
  • The clip for French Movies (by Magnus) was recorded there
  • Their first rehearsing room was in Wommelgem, at the papercompany of Filip Eyckman's parent (Eyckmans was managing dEUS at that time)
  • After Worst Case Scenario they moved to the attic of the home in the Drukkerijstraat where Tom and Stef lived together
  • About the last repetition: Stéphane wanted to put out the light, but he used the wrong switch: he put off all electricity. And Klaas was programming his synthesizer at that very moment...

Other stuff: famous fans for Belgian bands (Mark 'Morphine' Sandman, Damon Albarn, Beck, Radiohead, Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) and Richard Ashcroft (The Verve) . They've even forgotten Muse.

dEUS has won 4 Zamu-awards (out of 6 nominations). They won the awards for best album, best musician (Mauro), best composer (Tom) and best rockband. Absynthe Minded, one of Tom favourite bands, received two awards: best singer and best song (My heroics, part one). The award for the best live-act went to Gabriel Rios. A complete overview of the winners can be found here.

Since dEUS was playing an in-store in Rotterdam yesterday evening, they were not at the ceremony. The show will we broadcasted on Canvas next sunday at 1 PM.

Update: Wouter was at the ceremony. Four videomessages by dEUS were aired. The band was eating French fries. Some pieces of the video for What We Talk About (When We Talk About Love) were also shown. According to Wouter it looked kitchy: a white background, the band was dressed in white, some dancers (also in white) and a lot of flashlight-effects special effects.

Update2 : a 'still' from one of the videomessages over here. You'll notice Tom and Christian.

Pocket Revolution gets 4 stars (out of 5) from Mojo Magazine. De Morgen published a snippet of the review.

"Hoewel de groep heel groot is op het Europese vasteland, is dEUS in iets westelijkere richting nooit meer geweest dan een cultverschijnsel. Dat lijkt
onrechtvaardig, want de Antwerpse vijf behoorden tot de weinige overblijvers van
het alternatieve clubje van de jaren negentig die tegelijk melodieus en hoogst
origineel uit de hoek wisten te komen (de vaak geciteerde maar ietwat
gemakzuchtige vergelijkingspunten zijn Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart en The
Velvet Underground). Hun vierde cd klinkt rijk en gevarieerd, kronkelt langs het
filmische 'Bad Timing', de avant-funkdreun 'What We Talk About (When We Talk
About Love)' en de laatavondwals 'Nothing Really Ends'. Het gevat getitelde 'Sun
Ra' schiet zich recht naar de kosmos, intussen een donderende maar elegante baan
beschrijvend die enkel kan worden uitgetekend door muzikanten die elkaar op een
haast telepathisch manier aanvoelen. Alles wordt samengehouden door Tom Barmans kwikzilveren croon en existentialistische teksten, een zeldzame combinatie van abstractie en ontroering."

There's an interview with Stef Kamil Carlens in this week's Humo. He's talking about dEUS a couple of times.

  • He knew Mark Sandman (Morphine) very well. Sandman's girlfriend's parents lived in Brussel. When he came to Belgium he always called Stef to Jam. He called Tom to party. ,,Tom is not a jammer."
  • Bands with more than one songwriter are always getting in trouble after a couple of years. Ego's are getting too big. Now dEUS is Tom's band (he does most of the writing) and that's clear for everyone
  • He understands Mauro is willing too play with dEUS. Stef did some session for A Song About A Girls with Mauro too. He's a songwriter and a guitarplayer and he constantly thinks what kind of stuff does this song needs. Mauro is the best possible sidekick for Tom.
  • Citroën has offered dEUS 1.000.000 old Belgian francs to use one of their songs, but dEUS liked to get a little tourbus.
  • They also refused an offer (4.000.000 francs) from Belgacom to play 4 gigs with a banner of the company behind them.
