ELEMENTS (Ex-Red Zebra) confirmed as support for LAVVI EBBEL @ Kavka on June 20th
ELEMENTS were founded in 2011 in Brugge, Belgium. They are a continuation of the legendary new wave band RED ZEBRA, with bass player Sam Claeys on lead vocals. Johan Isselée (drums, synths), Geert Maertens (guitar), and Chris 'Hazy' Deneve (guitar, synths) complete the line up.
Sam's melodic and eclectic vocals, as well as the landscaping synths layered on the repetitive (Red Zebra) drums and guitars, created a novel and interesting, but foremost beautiful, electro & guitar wave sound.
ELEMENTS produce a magnificent modern sound with a melancholic feel.
On their titleless maiden record several pearls such as 'Wisdom of Knowing', 'Renegade', and 'Undecided' emerged as Sirens of a new dawn for the band. Songs such as 'Weak and Lost' provide a propelling drive and will sound familiar at live gigs. The record was home recorded and mixed by Johan Isselée, Steven Lorie (Mensen Blaffen) and Peter Van Mulders (Cinq Chevaux, live mix ELEMENTS), and gratiously mastered at Abbey Road studios by Adam Nunn ( who also did Radiohead, TV on The Radio, The Human League to name a few... ) . With ELEMENTS these Ex-Red Zebra men are ready to dwell across Belgian and European roads again.

New BodyBeats event confirmed! 20.06 Lavvi Ebbel @ Kavka - Antwerp
Lavvi Ebbel was without doubt one of the most controversial bands of the Belgian New-Wave movement. In the early '80, the band gained the attentions of many with their successful singles like 'Give Me a Gun' and 'Victoria'. The band soon gained a solid live reputation and combination of guitarists (Marc De Wit and Chris Van Ransbeeck), pianist (Bea Van Ransbeeck), drummer Eric White, singer Luckas Vander Taelen, backing vocalist Kristien D' Haeger, backed by the brass player Jan Weuts gave them an unique and original sound.
Lavvi Ebbel played 'only' 200 times in Belgium and the Netherlands , both in small clubs and at prestigious festivals such as Seaside. On the compilation album 'Get Sprouts' which was a true sample of the music from that period Lavvi Ebbel released 'No Place To Go', a highlight in collaboration with producer Jean-Marie Aerts. 'Albu Meth' is probably the most famous mini-LP, with the cult song 'Le Cafard'. The group ceased to exist in 1983.
Now, 30 years later Lavvi Ebbel is back in the original line-up, reinforced with Kloot Per W on bass.
In the spring of 2014 Starman Records releases a compilation LP / CD with the greatest hits of Lavvi Ebbel, live recordings from 1983 and 2013, as well as a rousing remix of "Victoria" by none other than Buscemi.
