There's an interview with Tom in De Nieuwe Revu. Has anyone read it? On De Nieuwe Revu-website there's an anecdote from the interviewer. Apparently the guy got a ride on Tom's auto-cycle and they were stopped by the police.

Afspreken met Barman is een vak apart
Presentator/schrijver Wilfried de Jong reisde voor Revu naar Antwerpen, om daar Tom Barman te interviewen, zanger van de Belgische band dEUS. Binnenkort verschijnt het nieuwe album van dEUS, Pocket Revolution. Afspreken met Barman is een vak apart - Wilfried mailde ons de volgende anekdote:

"Tom! Tom? O, je zit nog in de repetitieruimte. Nou, ik zit in Jozef. Jij zegt Zjozèf. Precies, die zaak vlakbij het Centraal Station met die Poolse uitziende oberdame en die foto van Dewinter aan de muur, met diezelfde dame. Wat? Heeft Dewinter alle platen van dEUS. Dewinter een dEUS-fan. Het moet niet gekker worden. Nou, ik zie je zo..."En daar is Tom, althans, ik zie een mager mannetje van een hoestende Mobylette afspringen met een doffe,zwarte helm. Verdomd, Barman I presume? Even later scheuren we door de stad. Ik duw als een geile blonde zonder helm mijn borst tegen het T-shirt van Tom en ja hoor, hij gaat nog harder. Daar is de politie. Of beter: flikken. We troeven ze af met superbe one-liners en komen onder de boete uit. En toen moest de nacht nog beginnen.

BTW : did anyone know Tom was a Camino-driver?

I was doing my weekly round-up of dEUS on Google and I bumped into Edel.at, a site with info about the promo for the album that was or is done in Germany and Austria. We can expect something on Viva/MTV Deutschland and Go Tv (Austria).

Visions Magazine will have four pages about dEUS in October. There will be features and reviews in Musikexpress, Intro, Tip, Access, Slam, Uncle Sallys, Spex, Rolling Stone ....

And it looks like they also know how the album scores in the different magazines. Rather good if you ask me.

Spex (09), INTRO (08), Musikexpress (10), RollingStone (10), Visions (10)

A lot of people seem to have troubles finding the 7 days, 7 weeks single-version with 3 tracks. The only thing they find in stores is the version with Wheels as a B-side. I didn't have the time to check out recordstores in my hometown this weekend, but has anyone seen the 3-track somewhere else than iTunes?

Update: the 3-track is apparently a UK-only release that will be available in limited amounts in France and The Netherlands too.
If you bought the single already, you can download Meeting You on iTunes.

There are some false (at least as far as I know) rumours going around concerning the dEUS-appearance on Pukkelpop.
I checked dEUS.be once again and I read this item.
This is what I conclude: there will not be a concert. You will only be able to listen the entire album and to watch all dEUS-videos from the No More Loud Music-dvd. The video for 7 days, 7 weeks will not be shown!
I don't think the Pukkelpop-organisation would not announce a dEUS-concert. It's their aim to get as many people as possible...

Tonight the Pixies play at the Pukkelpop-festival in Belgium. Flemish newspaper De Morgen has a big story about the band. In one of the smaller articles Tom is telling about his relation with the Pixies.

Back in 1988 he was looking for musicians to start a band style Velvet Underground/Pixies. Not that the early dEUS has reflection of these two bands, but Tom was convinced that people who didn't know the bands were no good. He didn't want to make Pixies-music, because he was sure he couldn't beat the original. Tom says that if the early dEUS does remind someone to Pixies, it surely has something to do with Rudy playing the guitar. ,,Rudy was a Pixie before the Pixies"

Antwerpen, 1988. Een pezige, zeventienjarige jongeman met halflang haar en een net als ons niet van pukkels gespaard gebleven aangezicht stapt de inmiddels verdwenen muziekhandel Praetorius binnen met de vraag of hij een 'annonce' achter de etalage mag hangen. De jongeman, Tom Barman (den Tommy voor de vrienden), blijkt op zoek te zijn naar muzikanten voor een net opgericht groepje. Een groepje dat, zo leert de oproep, muziek maakt "stijl Velvet Underground/Pixies".
Tom Barman is de bewuste oproep vandaag nog niet vergeten. "Ik herinner me alles wat met de Pixies te maken heeft nog goed", zegt hij. "In ongeveer dezelfde periode ben ik nog naar hun optreden op Futurama gaan kijken. Jammer genoeg had ik net de Jozef Stalin onder de sinusitten. Ik heb er tot mijn grote frustratie maar een kwartier bewust van meegemaakt."
Hoe zot de jonge Barman ook van de Pixies was, van een rechtstreekse invloed op het beginnende dEUS kan er volgens hem geen sprake zijn. "Ik denk dat ik destijds in die annonce naar de Pixies en de Velvets heb verwezen om te vermijden dat er mensen op af zouden komen die niet wisten wie de Velvet Underground en de Pixies waren. Met zo'n volk viel in mijn ogen niets te beginnen. Maar of we echt muziek wilden maken die zoveel mogelijk op die van de Pixies moest lijken? Nee.
Waarschijnlijk wist ik toen al dat de Pixies imiteren eenvoudigweg onmogelijk is. Wie het probeert, die gaat gegarandeerd plat op zijn bek. Als de vroege dEUS aan de Pixies doet denken, dan heeft dat waarschijnlijk met het nogal vreemde gitaarspel van Rudy Trouvé te maken. (lacht) Rudy was eigenlijk al een Pixie nog voor de Pixies bestonden."
Barmans liefde voor de Pixies staat vandaag nog altijd pal overeind. "Ik zet hun platen nog regelmatig op", zegt hij, om tegelijk toe te geven dat het niet helemaal liefde op het eerste gehoor was. "Toen ik Surfer Rosa voor het eerst hoorde, had ik echt schrik van die plaat. Maar eens van de schrik bekomen, was ik voorgoed verkocht. Behalve angstaanjagend zijn hun liedjes ook behoorlijk melodieus. Black Francis kan heel hard schreeuwen, maar ook verschrikkelijk goed zingen. En ja, ik weet het: Kim Deal is een fantastische bassiste. Al blijft Kim Gordon van Sonic Youth voor mij de moeder aller bassistes."

I had a short talk with Tom yesterday after the interview we recorded. Most important thing: they're still working on the 7 days, 7 weeks video. It will definitely not be shown on Pukkelpop or Lowlands.

I had a great experience yesterday evening. Universal Belgium (the record company that releases Pocket Revolution in Belgium) organised a listening session for the new album in the ICP-studios. About 40 Belgian journalist had the chance to listen to the album for the first time (if they hadn't downloaded it yet). A bit strange, sitting on a chair for an hour listening to an album.

It's not common practice in Belgium to organise such sessions, but Universal wanted to show how important the new dEUS is for them. The last time they did a listening session in Belgium was with the release of How to dismantle an atomic bomb by U2.

Tom, Stéphane and Alan were also there. Tom did a short intro for the press. He said to be happy the album is finished. He praised Michel Dierickx who did a great job mixing the album. Tom is doing promo-interviews and the album gets very good reactions.

During one of those interviews an Italian journalist asked Tom if it's not commercial suicide to open the album with Bad Timing, a song of 7 minutes length. Tom didn't know the answer immediately. The journalist answered: Offcourse not, it's a great song!

First reactions of the press seemed to be quite good. Everyone got a promo-copy. Expect some reviews in the week of the release!

Arthur and I recorded a track-by-track-interview Tom. I'm not gonna spoil your fun, so check out the official website very soon for the video.

There was Deus-beer (a sort of champagne-beer, brewn close to my hometown). Christian liked the baseline of the beer: Brut des Flandres. Sort of what dEUS is all about. But there is no other 'link' between the band and the beer.

Oh yeah, the English journalist who tried to sell his promo-copy on eBay was tracked down by V2. I wonder if she will still get promo's...

17 August 2005 at 16:38 posted by Bart Van Belle 0 Comments

  3. Stop-Start Nature
  4. Include Me Out
  5. The Real Sugar
  6. Sun Ra
  7. Nothing Really Ends
  8. If You Don't Get What You Want
  9. What We Talk About (When We Talk About Love)
  10. Pocket Revolution
  11. Nightshopping
  12. Cold Sun of Circumstance
Have they really changed the tracklisting? I don't think so. It's not that easy since the cd's (or at least the booklets) are probably printed by now. And Amazon has probably just copy-pasted from the V2-site where all songs are showed randomly in exactly the same order as they are on the Amazon-site.

BTW: I don't think the official site would mention an incorrect tracklisting.

Ticketmaster no longer sells tickets for the concert in Nighttown. If you wanna see dEUS in The Netherlands you better buy tickets for De Oosterpoort fast.

Read on if you haven't heard Pocket Revolution yet and if you're going to the Lowlands-festival. There will be two sneak previews of the album in the Livexs-tent. The album will be played on saturday and sunday from 12.00 pm.

And if you're still looking for tickets for the concert in Het Patronaat, you have to listen to NightLiveXS on Dutch radiostation Kink Fm. Tomorrow, between 20 and 22 hours, they will give away the last tickets.

Great. It looks like Revdoc has started something with the Pacific-concert. Idiotic has upped one song (called tENERIFE) of the Pukkelpop-gig back in 1996. Yeps, the last concert Stef played with dEUS. You can download it here. If you prefer the complete gig you might want to try this torrent.

Tickets for the concert in Paradiso, Amsterdam are no longer on sale through Ticketmaster.nl. The concert is probably sold out as well. Tickets for De Oosterpoort and Nighttown are still available.

I have no cable-tv and wasn't able to watch Zomergasten live last sunday. Someone recorded it for me and I watched the first part yesterday evening. Two things that were not mentioned anywhere else yet.

  • dEUS stopped playing Sister Dew live because Tom thinks he doesn't sing it well enough. He knows at least three or four people who can sing it beter
  • The real sugar, one of the songs on Pocket Revolution is dedicated to Mark Sandman, the singer of Morphine. He died on stage on July 3rd 1999 in Rome, a couple of weeks after dEUS played the same venue.
    Sandman has been a big influence for Tom, he told in a couple of interviews. dEUS and Morphine toured the USA together back in 1997 and Dana Colley, the sax-player of Morphine played on Supermarketsong and joined dEUS a couple of times on stage.

You can watch Zomergasten here (Real Player needed).

Kevin Moens got a promo of Pocket Revolution from V2-music. We have all seen the front side of Pocket Revolution by now. But who has seen the back side?

The video for the new Millionaire-single I'm on a high is on line. Click here to watch it. As mentioned before, the video features Mauro in a ,,kinky toiletscene" somewhere in the middle of the clip.

And if you're in the UK, feel free to join the Millionaire-streetteam.

Danny and Els from Vive La Fête have their own rubrique in the Flemish talkshow Zomer 2005: Vive La Bête. Last weekend they visited the European Championship Western Riding. If you wanna see it, you have to watch the show tonight.
Flemish newspaper Het Belang Van Limburg joined Danny and Els on their trip. Danny was wearing a feather in his hair because ,,I'm an Indian. Tom Barman is a cowboy. At least that's what he thinks." Hey, now we know why Tom is wearing that hat on a lot of Magnus-pics.

Danny daarentegen draagt een pluim in zijn ravenzwarte haar. "Ik ben een Indiaan," grijnst hij. "Tom Barman is een cowboy. Tenminste: dat denkt hij toch," sneert hij eens te meer naar zijn ex-dEUS-kompaan.

Gazet Van Antwerpen has an interview with Stef Kamil Carlens today. He was not feeling kinda homesick when recording with dEUS. He has his own career now. If he would join dEUS again there would be immediate conflicts between Tom and him. And apparently he will join dEUS some time during the tour. Probably not in September or October then, because Zita Swoon is touring then also.
Here's the fragment where Stef talks about dEUS.

Je hebt meegewerkt mee aan de nieuwe dEUS-cd die op 9 september uitkomt. Voel je het nooit kriebelen om weer op scène te staan met je ex-groep?
Nee, daar heb ik absoluut geen zin in. Ik heb mijn eigen carrière nu. Het is zoveel werk geweest om alles op te bouwen. Geen haar op mijn hoofd dat eraan denkt om dat los te laten.
Zou het botsen tussen jou en Tom Barman?
(lacht) Binnen de kortste keren. Nu, dat op zich zou geen reden zijn om het niét te doen - botsen kan interessant zijn. Ik ga zeker wel eens mee op de nieuwe tournee.Tommy heeft gevraagd of hij me mag boeken (glimlacht).

And be prepared: there will be a Zita Swoon-dvd in december! And next summer Stef will be the host for the music-part of Theater aan Zee, a festival in Oostende. Stef will be playing a concert and will invite other artists.

Earlier this week, Revdoc gave us an old recording of Zea. He's now ready with mastering the complete concert. You can download it on Rapidshare as well: part 1 part 2.
More info in this thread of the I Suffer Rock-community.

Note: you have to wait one hour between downloading part 1 and part 2.
