An interview with Tom from De Standaard. It says there's a big chance Koen Wauters will do something together with dEUS next sunday...

at 00:26 posted by Bart Van Belle 1 Comment

dEUS will play a couple of covers next sunday. Tom proposed 4 songs to the rest of the band, but since they think the 0110-gig should be a regular gig they've decided to play only two of them. They won't play War (Bob Marley) and België (Het Goede Doel). Which cover should they play according to you? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

Apparently Tom was a guest on De Wereld Draait Door on Vara (Dutch tv) yesterday. You can watch it here. He's mainly talking about 0110. They showed the Jan Eelen-commercial too. Tom said dEUS will play a couple of covers (and of course some own songs) on 0110. And he talked about making videoclips too. He called himself an ex-videoclipmaker. He made about 17 clips, but he thinks only 3 are really good.
He also talked about the GDMW Festival in Rotterdam, where Tom will be deejaying on September 29th.

In my mailbox today: Brecht Vaes asking me if I knew if anyone has written a book about dEUS already....

As far as I know there's no book about the band. Maybe someone has made a schoolwork about dEUS (I know Kevin Moens did something). And the Cucamonga-series from 2003 is also giving a nice overview.

Anyway, I think the idea could be great. But writing it is something else ofcourse. First of all, whoever wants to write something like this needs time. And money. And someone who's willing to publish the book. And there's loads of practical questions too: what language? which title? who should be interview? who are key-figures in the dEUS-history? etcetera. If someone writes a book about dEUS what would you want it to be like? Who should be in? Please give your opinion in the comments.

There's an interview with Tom about 0110 in Het Laatste Nieuws today.

  • Tom thinks 0110 is important because it will show Vlaams Belang that a couple of the best know Flemish singers (like Laura Lynn, Clouseau, Helmut Lotti and Will Tura is not supporting them)
  • He refused to react on the open letter from Filip De Winter because that would create a negative spiral
  • There were some talks with the artists that received an open letter, but everybody kept supporting the basic-idea behind 0110.
  • 0110 is already a succes because it brings together artists from different genres
  • At the moment about 40 people are working on the organisation of the event (people from Rock Werchter and other festivals)
  • About the venues: they can easily receive 30.000 people in Antwerp and 15.000 in Ghent
  • Christian Pierre has been fundraising: 150.000 euro
  • They have received 15.000 sms-messages so far
  • They also received some cash from Fnac and the National Lotery
  • Tom is aware of the fact that people will measure the succes of 0110 by the number of votes Vlaams Belang will get. He thinks 0110 will not stop Vlaams Belang, but it's important that Flemish artists give a positive signal.
  • The open letter from Filip De Winter has encouraged a lot of artists to join 0110
  • Tom has received some hatemail and he was threatened while walking around in Antwerp too
  • From October 2nd, he'll start writing for the new album. They'll start recording spring 2007.

Studio Brussel aired Best of the best with dEUS and Millionaire yesterday. If you missed it you can download it at the podcast. If you understand Dutch, it's certainly worth a listen...

Some facts that were mentioned during the broadcast:

  • dEUS played their first gig on November 20th 1989. Their name was spelled Dejus on the concertposters
  • Tom's favorite popsong is Boys of summer by Don Henley

BTW: the mp3-file from Studio Brussel doesn't tell who the winner is. If anyone happens to know, please post it in the comments...

Yesterday night in Middelburg was nice. Technically spoken it wasn't the best dEUS-gig ever. But the setting made up a lot. A beautiful abbeysquare and a very relaxed band. I was suprised by the number of visitors. The square wasn't packed at all. I estimate there were about 1.500 dEUS-lovers. A big part of the Abdijplein was totally empty. You could easily get in the front (even during the gig). Tom even made a joke during the gig (,,It's a long time ago we played in front of a terrace'').

The kicked of with Turnpike, Stop-Start Nature, Instant Street and Fell Off The Floor, Man and played mainly the regular set for this tour. Almost all songs from Pocket Revolution (except Include Me Out), Suds & Soda, Via and W.C.S from Worst Case Scenario, Little Arithmetics and Roses (from In A Bar). They added Nightshopping (on audience request) and played only one encore (Assault on dEUS). I'm really bad in ordering songs, so don't expect an exact setlist.

Tom dedicated Nothing Really Ends to Julien Schoenaerts, a belgian actor who died at 81 this week and father of Matthias Schoenaert (Chouki in Any Way The Wind Blows).

It was great to see them in this intimate setting and to see how much fun they had on stage. Let the countdown to 0110 begin!

  • Apparently, the Arenberg-theatre in Antwerp is the 0110-headquarter
  • dEUS is rehearsing there as well
  • He's very happy they succeeded in setting up a festival with a very broad line-up
  • He thinks Vlaams Belang has overreacted on 0110
  • He thinks 0110 is already a success because people talk about it and a lot of artists have joined 0110
  • He refers to actions in the 90's in France against the Front National and in Engeland against the National Party (by Hard-Fi, Kaiser Chiefs and The Streets).
