Product Description

Product Description

Dead Belgian is a Liverpool-based band playing the music of Jacques Brel. Their debut album, 'LOVE & DEATH: THE SONGS OF JACQUES BREL was recorded and mixed at Limefield Studios, Manchester, by John Ellis and Bill Leader. Bill was honoured at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in February 2012 with the Good Tradition Award, in recognition of his lifetime of achievement in British folk music. Dead Belgian began life in 2007, inspired to share Brel's music with all who would listen. Each member brought their own influences to the band, from European folk to progressive rock, stripping the songs to their bare bones and fattening them up again using a ramshackle drum kit, ukulele, guitar, accordion, saxophone, mandolin, clarinet and flute. Dead Belgian have developed a playful and inventive sound that meshes dense melodic patterns, demonic waves of intensity and passages of sparse frailty with vocals that have drawn comparison to Edith Piaf, Anthony Hegarty and Nico. It is a sound unique to them while still capturing the beauty, passion and humour of the original work, a rousing and rowdy backporch reinvention of Jacques Brel's honest and poetic stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Singing the songs of Jacques 23 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Going to see this band on Friday 26th April 2013. Wanted to see how they adapted the songs of Brel, and I want disappointed. They are great. The songs are sung in French and English., and are sympathetically delivered.

I am now really excited about seeing the band live.

Went to see the band and I can only say BRILLIANT. They were truly amazing and the female lead is amazing. You have to go see them if you love BREL.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting twist on Jaques 7 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Good mix of songs, done in an inventive way. If you like the songs of Jaques Brel, or European sounding folk music, you will probably like it.

Dead Belgian have the skills to lift the poems of Brel. Very impressive and powerful and, above all, very moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great interpretations of Jacques Brel 20 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love& Death: Great interpretations of Brel. The translations are good too. A good intro/intereptation to Brel's work. Worth trying even if you don't know the originals.
