Cash!” by Paul Collet and Pierre Drouot (Antwerp, Belgium, 1967) … now out on dvd via Belfilm (2011) with the soundtrack by Roger Morès (original vinyl on Vogue) extra on cd (27’43”). Fuzzy groovy title track“Cash-cash” was co-written by Roger Morès and Roel Van Bambost (without Miek); all other tracks – e.g. “Dancing” – were written by Morès. Two tracks for the next (sixth) “Beat Bespoké” v/a compilation, oh New Untouchables? (Volume five, once again compiled by Rob Bailey, has just been released on Circle, cat. no. CPWC113.)

Toet Toet Zbolk Zbolk … With “Isomopolis. ICC” (Ultra Eczema cat. no. UE89, 2011-02), Antwerp dynamo Dennis Tyfus has just released his first George Smits lp. And according to the hardest working man in the business of Belgium’s underground heritage, a.o., there’s more to come from Smits‘ vaults. Earlier on, Lowlands had released “Zbolk Night Radio” (1995 cat. no. AUDIO 002) and “Toet” (2001, AUDIO 012) on cd via its Audioview imprint. “Isomopolis. ICC” is a beautifully packaged and well documented picture disc limited to 200 copies. It features three compositions in three parts by Ferre Grignard‘s former guitar (etc) player recorded at the Antwerp ICC in 1981. (Highly recommended for fans of “Mzui” and Michael O’Shea!) The amazing documentary above was made by Karel Schoetens for the BRT in 1984; the interview was conducted by Wim Van Mulders. Just watch this for the frères Bachet fragment alone!
