Brusselnieuws.be has an item on the making of the Eternal Woman-video. Tom has been filming in the old control room of the Flemish radio in the Flagey-building in Brussel. He wants to give the video a retro-futuristic atmosphere. Italian actress Martina Stelle is the Eternal Woman. They will also be shooting in the ICP-studios in Brussel and The Netherlands at the radio telescopes of Westerbork (The Netherlands).

In the video the band will play the song. The song is transferred by morse-code to the control room and broadcasted through the telescopes later on.

OHM about The Vanishing Of Maria Schneider:

Arguably this is one of the highlights of their recent album Vantage Point, and should find favour amongst those who like their rock tinged with a hint of Coldplay-esque grandeur.

Indeed Elbow's Guy Garvey adds his vocals to proceedings giving it a real sense of grandeur. One for the masses then, but also one that leaves you hankering for a little more of the eccentricity that dEUS once had.

dEUS as the closing act of the best festival in the world. I shouldn't tell you I was really looking forward to the gig. A lot has been written about the gig already, but I don't agree with the people saying dEUS played too little known songs. Just look at the setlist and you'll notice they played 9 songs that should be more or less known by regular Studio Brussel-listeners.

Ofcourse, they could have played some oldies like Little Arithmetics, Hotellounge or Via instead of Oh Your God, Is A Robot and Smokers Reflect, but they're touring with a new album. The setlist was an excellent mix of old songs and songs from Vantage Point.

In 2004 dEUS used to open their festivalgigs with Turnpike, now they seem to have picked Slow. A great version if you ask me. Oh Your God was a nice wake-up call for people who fell asleep after 4 days of music. Instant Street was the first highlight for me. Mauro's backing vocals. The brilliant outro. Goose bumps every time.

After Fell Of The Floor, Man they played three songs from Vantage Point (Is A Robot, Smokers Reflect and Maria Schneider). The intro for Is A Robot was probably a bit long, but the rest of the song rocked. After a small quiet intermezzo with Smokers Reflect and Maria Schneider dEUS played a brilliant rest of the gig. Turnpike, a messy The Architect and the new single Favourite Game were great. I wasn't impressed by the longer intro of Sun Ra because Mauro clearly had problems singing his wohoo's at the beginning a couple of times.

A lot of people didn't recognize Nothing Really Ends due to the new intro. The fade out/in to Bad Timing remains as fantastic as the first time they did the trick. The encores kicked off with Popular Culture. As announced, the kids choir joined the band on stage. It's nice to see it, but they were not singing that good this time. According to Het Nieuwsblad one of the kids is the brother of Luna, the 2-year old girl that was killed by a racist killer in Antwerp two years ago.

The apotheose was superb. Roses was followed by a long version of Suds & Soda, the kids choir was dancing on stage, and the crowd went crazy. Tom jumped on the monitors and gave the signal to start the fireworks.
