Question: How does Flat Earth Society takes hold on the music of Louis Armstrong? Eighteen white zulu's straight from the Belgian jungle meet the big black smurf from perdido-black and blue. The darkness, the blues, the funeral and the streetparade, the inbouncable vitality, the gospel, the golden intro's, the evergreens and the jungle-jazz. Satchmo, the macho, the intaking, the outtaking, the angular, the raging, the sentimental, the groweer, wornout, unheard-old cadillacs never die. His godly guds burst, and like an alien, FES force themselves a way out and bothers without shame all the rooftiles.


Question is also: How does Armstrong takes hold on the music of Flat Earth Society?
After thirteen Armstrong-mutations, only FES remains and carries on.


'The Armstrong Mutations' are a project of 'Ancienne Belgique' and went into premiere on the 30th of August during ' Boterhammen in de stad'. The cd was recorded the end of Novermber 2002, in studio Dada in Brussels under the expert knowledge of Pierre Vervloesem, who also will finalize the cd.
