On February 22, 1995, these alt-rock outsiders could already be seen in PAARD (then Troje), on April 19th dEUS will return for a show. When frontman Tom Barman was asked for the umpteenth time to describe his band’s music, he came up with a perfectly low-key statement: “We’re slightly extravagant”. It’s a credo that dEUS has served well during their two-decade career, during which the band emerged from the early 90s club scene in Antwerp.

Although dEUS threatened to make their way into the mainstream with “In A Bar, Under The Sea”, their individuality has remained. As 2008’s “Vantage Point” illustrates, the band has grown immeasurably since the early ’90s, their sound more streamlined and their reputation more assured. But something of their former casual spirit still remains, an attitude rooted more in fringe jazz bohemia than in the orthodoxy of alternative rock.
