An accordeon and a drum, that's all we need to make kids go wild

A nice interview in Bruzz about the beginning of Ik en den Theo / Moi et le Théo and the ideas behind it.

Careering brass, pumping accordeon, lead singer Piet Maris’s raw, declamatory vocals, the dips into jazz and dub… it’s all here and all sounding better than ever

Jamie Renton gave Jaune Toujours’ live album cluB a raving review in fRoots.

Building up to our Choux-Fest [04042020] | VK on April 4th (get your tickets!), we'll be sharing from our vast archive of experiences in the weeks to come.

Today a series of pictures of Mec Yek, taken by Sarah Baur in 2002. As you can see, in the early formation Katarina Pohlodkova was not yet joined by her sister Milka Pohlodkova on leading vocals, but by her friend Luba Macova, who decided after a while that a singing career was not her thing.
Luckily Milka was able and happy to join the band and is still one of two front women on this day.
Other musicians in the picture are Piet Maris, Mathieu Verkaeren and Mattias Laga in a younger version.

Come listen to Mec Yek at Choux-Fest!

20 years of Choux de Bruxelles - artist collective, that makes for quite an archive of experiences in music, theatre, film and photography.
Building up to our birthday bash Choux-Fest [04042020] | VK (get your tickets!), it's our pleasure to share some of them here in the weeks to come.
Today, we look back in black and white on a gig by Jaune Toujours in June 2001 in the port of Brussels called "Musette au fil de l'eau". Little did we know that we would install our headquarters across the water a few years later.
Bert Bernaerts was still a member of the band back then. He moved on to perform in youth theatre with Zonzo Compagnie and directs the marching band HOP FROG Fanfare.
