Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul


Véronique Vincent was the female lead singer with Brussels band The Honeymoon Killers, which created quite a sensation in the early '80s, and managed the rare feat of becoming the darling of the music press in the UK (Véronique remains one of the only francophone vocalists to have appeared on the cover of the NME, photographed by Anton Corbijn, incidentally), whilst appearing on mainstream pop shows on French TV.
Marc Hollander founded Aksak Maboul and the Crammed Discs label, which he runs and A&Rs to this day (and which has released around 350 albums since 1981).

Vincent Kenis was part of Aksak Maboul and The Honeymoon Killers. He's a record producer (Congotronics, Taraf de Haïdouks, Konono No.1, Staff Benda Bilili, Kasai Allstars & many more).

Aksak Maboul released two albums: Onze danses pour combattre la migraine (1977), which leapfrogged over style & genre boundaries and can be viewed as a manifesto for the Crammed aesthetics, and the more avantgarde Un peu de l'âme des bandits (1980), often associated with the RIO movement. Ex-Futur Album fearlessly explores the pop end of Aksak Maboul's broad musical spectrum
