The song in question was "Vliegtuig"
(Aeroplane) of 1996, meanwhile a Flemish "classic" with it's parlando
vocals, sluggish beat and greasy accent (da'k a geire zien, gij da'k het meen,
me u alleen). This song was a bit of a joke according to the group itself, but
it was certainly one that paid off (6 weeks in de Afrekening etc.. ). "The
new style meant more gigs, and gigs mean free food & drinks! Their new style
even got them a tour in Bosnia. Although that last bit is hardly a thing to envy
them, since one of their guitars still has a bullet hole in it as a recollection
of that tour!".
In 1997 the singles that came afterwards were bundled on the CD "100%
EMO (200% AMU)", released on Double T. On it featured a number of surprising
covers covers (Tom Waits, Louis Neefs, Sex Pistols) and
guest roles of people such as Mies Meulders (see Lama's)
and Tom Lumbeeck (see Belgian Asociality).
The styles of the songs ranged from cabaret to rock, from jungle to metal and
from triphop to ambient, something that also caused such diverse reactions in
the press such as :
- "Quite a nice album that suffers a bit from the fact that there seem
to be two singers. The guy from "Vel tegen Vel" is a fantastic diseur
with a cut dialect. The other singer is much less original, causing the level
to degrade rapidly. All in all a reasonable debut, although a bit of weeding would've
been better" (said Jacky Huys in Knack).
- "Erik van Neygen who - after an experiment
with LSD that went completely wrong - has the false idea that Sanne is one hot
animal wanting to be jumped upon twice a minute, that's the way these gentlemen
sound. "Tien om te Zien" with a fat wink of the eye, but not a pubic
hair better. The Boerenzonen op Speed is a dumb joke of which we have missed the
clue. A fart in a bottle by an Indian that loves hot & spicy." (wrote
mvs in Humo)
After a number of years of touring the various festivals and clubs in Flanders
(and a small attempt to make it in Holland), the band called it quits in the summer
