Made in Belgium: Hooverphonic

Made in Belgium brings you this week the top group Hooverphonic. I bought their album "The Magnificent Tree" in 2000 and remember playing it a lot. Especially "Mad about you" & "Vinigar & Salt" kept dragging you along and along.

Hooverphonic has remained succesfull but I don't thing they've matched 'The Magnificent Tree' anymore. Last year the singer Geike has announced to leave the band for a solo career and currently the well known musical force behind Hooverphonic Alex Callier is organising a competition to find a new lead singer. So if you feel inspired....take your chance!

'Mad about you - 2000'



"The world is mine - 2002"





Vinigar & Salt

Zalige muziek! Merci... ik heb de cd ook, maar hij wat onder het stof verzeild geraakt.

We saw them live in Gent last year. Not too bad, thoguh yeah, I think they peaked with The MAgnificent Tree though.
They're cool, but... I guess these are the older cuts.

Man! Nog een treffer! Ik hou van "Mad about you"! Denk dat wij het hier ergens hebben-- ga het meteen opzoeken.

Leuk idee van jou om alle Belgische hits te posten, trouwens! Ik heb heel veel mooie herinneringen van onze tijd in Vlaanderen-- voelde me echt lekker in mijn vel daar!

Maaaaaahhaaaaaaad about youuuuuuuuu! Super, bedankt!
