ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PRESS FOR LUNA TWIST (1980-1983)

'Modern but not snobistic, avant-garde but not elitarist.... the band that builds a bridge between tradition and future.... Blanchart's primus inter pares 'Bop again' by itself does more against ‘stupid Belgian’-jokes than 10 Brakke Gronden ever could’. (Brakke Grond is a Flemish cultural centrum in Amsterdam –ed).
(Humo, 1982, review album 'A different smell from the same perfume').

'For now, Luna Twist is thé best Belgian band : a modern sound, varied, solid and catchy... despite Allez Allez, despite TC Matic’.
(TéleMoustique, 1982, review Belgium Pop Festival, Antwerpen)

'The best of that period in Belgium saved from oblivion'.
(Humo, 1998, compilation 'The original recordings 81- 83' )

'Roxy Music was there but Luna Twist stole the show... world class!'.
(Het Volk, 1982, Luna Twist as support-act with Roxy Music)

'There are moments when reality surpasses fiction.... where one would like to stop the time to relive something exceptional again and again. I had 2 such moments in one week, and on both occasions it was triggered by a Luna Twist concert’.
(Télemoustique, 1982, about Luna Twist being support-act to Roxy Music + another gig)

'I think Luna Twist is still one of the most underrated Belgian bands ever, at that time at the same level of The Stranglers or INXS or any international band you’d care to mention. But there was no money, no marketing, no real management.... I’m speaking of a time when you could hear literally 4 hours of rock music per week on the national radio'.
(P-Magazine, 2002)
