About this item

"Brussels, monday 1 AM. Capital of a united Europe, its inhabitants separated by cultural spheres along lingual lines. Yet, in the back of a dimly lit pub they encounter one another surrounded by nocturnal buzz and the smell of skimpy beer. The night is a place where poets, authors and musicians dwell, in an attempt to leave everyday reality behind in favor of a universal nowhere in particular."
Nachtdichter (poet of the night) is the world of Victor de Roo, assisted by the words of Alex Deforce: “Meer naar café's, ze gaan dicht zonder ons”. Expect to hear melancholic guitar, spoken word and fragile synth tones, quasi new beat lullabies, cinematic vignettes and opiated experiments, all set to the neon buzz of a flickering striplight.


STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Knekelhuis start the new year with a majorly wavy offering from Victor De Roo, who uses guitar, synth, drum box and voice to transplant Hopper's Nighthawks to 21st century Brussels. Music for loners, poets and perverts.
