This is the second release in Stilll's "P.V. Presents" series, curated by the Brussels-based producer/avant-garde guitarist/composer, Pierre Vervloesem, following 2008's Not Even Close (OPV 001CD). This time, P.V. presents Kings Of Belgium, a powerful trio of atomic jazz-punk-disco-reggae pop-trashcore music. Members include Pierre Vervloesem (X-Legged Sally, dEUS, Flat Earth Society, A Group, Wim Vandekeybus, etc.), Gil Mortio (Attica, Bruno Vansina, etc.) and Didier Fontaine (A Group, Salvatore Adamo, dEUS, BJ Scott, etc.). The project is based on a free-spirited musical approach and was recorded during two crazy days in August of 2007. There is no composition as such, and the music is therefore totally spontaneous -- an outrageous blend of heavy, light, thunderous, comical, and mentally ill -- depending on the moods explored by the band. Simultaneously invoking John Zorn, The Residents, and Frank Zappa, Unchained Melodies is a zany storm full of abrupt jumps in style and genre and feels like driving a video game car across countless landscapes, around monstrous obstructions.
