Flat Earth Society (Belgium)

The music of FES is 95% homemade. Streaks of music of other composers are used as inspiration, frequently arranged, adapted and integrated into FES compositions, adding a wide range of atmospheres and styles to the eclectic FES universe. FES, who dares to flirt with other disciplines as theatre and film and owns the ability to seduce a number of different audiences, from more select jazz listeners to a wild young rock public, is at its best live on stage.
In the past they worked with various guest musicians: Uri Caine, Toots Thielemans, Jimi Tenor, John Watts, Ernst Reijseger and more recently Mauro Pawlowski (dEUS).
Mike Patton, leading man of Faith No More and of many other projects / bands (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom) invited FES as support act for his European tour with Fantômas in 2004.
The tour ran along the greatest rock venues in Europe and the band played to sold out audiences everywhere. Patton made a compilation of 19 songs from the six FES cd’s (ISMS, Ipecac), mainly from The Armstrong Mutations and Minoes, but also from previously unreleased material, an introduction to the FES repertoire for the overseas audience, as it were. Mike Patton said about the album: “It’s really unique and engaging stuff. It’s going to blow people’s minds.”
In 2011 FES toured the USA for the first time. They started at the Tropical Heatwave Festival in Tampa, they went to Washington at the Kennedy Center and they ended the tour in New York at the Atrium Stage (Lincoln Center) and the Museum of the Moving Image.
So 2014 brings them back to the U.S., with a brand new live album: ‘Call Sheets, Riders & Chicken Mushroom’: a selection of 14 years of live concerts, as well as the cd ‘13’ with new work released last year.
