Knot (CD)


Its 11 songs originated from three long sessions that produced some 20 hours of improvisation and text fragments. But whereas the band’s previous album ‘angst’ was largely inspired by conversations between lyricist Henk Hofstede and his mother, ‘Knot’ covers a much broader range of topics, including experiences from his immediate environment, mixed with observations and fantasies. A dance party in Ostend connects Marvin Gaye with Belgian painter and printmaker James Ensor (‘Dead Rat Ball’), clearing out the parental home evokes the work of British sculptor Rachel Whiteread (‘The Concrete House’), and a character from a thriller inhabits the text of ‘Music Box With Ballerina’.
