An anthology compilation of Island Records artists was recently released, where Little Arithmetics (from In A Bar Under The Sea) shares CD space with the likes of Roxy Music, The B-52's, Pulp, John Cale or Portishead. Island Records, now part of Universal Music, had signed dEUS back in 1994.

Tom Barman joined Stef Kamil Carlens with Zita Swoon on stage again tonight. With John Parish on guitar, they first played Great American Nude (again) in front of a packed Ancienne Belgique, followed by a cover of the Velvet Underground's "Temptation Inside Your Heart" (again).

Tickets are still available for the third Zita Swoon gig, this coming Saturday.

In a lengthy, 5-page interview with Tom Barman and Stef Kamil Carlens, this week's paper issue of HUMO goes back to the early days of dEUS. Why now? Because this Friday, Worst Case Scenario, from the Tom/Stef/Rudy period, gets the deluxe treatment; because Zita Swoon are releasing a best-of album (To Play, To Dream, To Drift, An Anthology); because next week, Tom will be Stef's guest during several special Zita Swoon concerts (tickets still available for the AB one).

You can read excerpts from the interview on the HUMO website. It's all in Dutch, mind you.

Someone should translate it into English, cause it's frankly amazing to read all those stories about early-90's dEUS, 13 years after Stef left the band. There's stuff about why Stef (and Rudy, and Craig) left dEUS, how the band at first all lived together in Antwerp, how they coped with early success (and how very differently), ...

A must-read.
