Ακούμε το ομώνυμο κομμάτι από το άλμπoυμ Heat Wave της σημαντικής Βελγικής avant-prog μπάντας Univers Zero – η μουσική τους οφείλει περισσότερα στη “σύγχρονη” του 20ου αι. παρά στο rock. Η περίοδος, late ‘70s, που ξεκίνησαν τη δισκογραφική τους καριέρα [ως μέλη του “κινήματος” Rock In Opposition] δεν ήταν η καταλληλότερη για καλλιτέχνες του είδους. Ακόμα χειρότερο ήταν το mainstream κλίμα για ένα άλμπουμ όπως το Heat Wave, εν έτει 1986.

We hear the title track from Heat Wave, an album by the significant Belgian avant-prog band Univers Zero – their music is rather 20th century’ s contemporary than rock. The period, late ’70s, during which they started recording [as members of the Rock In Opposition “movement”] was not most suitable for artists of their kind. Even worse was the mainstream scene for an album like Heat Wave, in 1986.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!
