A couple of days ago the official I Suffer Rock forum was taken down because the band decided to focus on a select number of (social and music oriented) sites. Arthur did a great job running The ISufferRock Community for more than 10 years and he deserves our eternal respect for connecting dEUS-fans all over the world.

Since some people were asking for a new forum, I've dediced to setup a new one. It's called Nothing Really Ends and you can find it at www.hotellounge.be/forum.

Since some of you will probably go sniffing on Hotellounge.be as well: that's a new site I'm building. I'm planning to release it somewhere around the release of Keep You Close. The site is still work in progress, but if you notice any errors, be sure to drop me a line.

Humo has a nice series about the girls behind rocksongs. One of the first songs they talked about was Magdalena, one of my personal dEUS-favorites.

Magdalena Przybylek had a relation with Tom at the end of 1998, during the recording sessions of The Ideal Crash. She met Tom on a party at Danny Mommens' place and they exchanged numbers. The song does perfectly describe their relationship. 'Now you're holding back, and I'm holding on'.

They had a relationship for about a year, but since Tom was touring that period, Magdalena says two months would be more correct. She even joined the band on tour and was 'impressed' by the dirty state of the tourbus.

She's not following dEUS anymore these days. Her son is called Deuce, but that's after Deuce Bigalow, one of her favorite movies.

As announced a couple of weeks ago, the gig at Pukkelpop will mark the end of a dEUS live-era. The Keep You Close-tour will have completely different setlists than the gigs the last couple of years.

For the gig at Pukkelpop, dEUS gives the fans the possibility to choose their favorite songs and perhaps these oldies will be played live at  the festival.

You can post your top-3 dEUS-songs on the Studio Brussel-website. There's also a small competition. The winners get a duo-tickets for Pukkelpop. (The answer is somewhere on this blog ;-))
