FISH on FRIDAY Fish on Friday – 8mm

Perhaps not entire EM but With Frank vanBoagaert it is something special

Fish On Friday has always been able to walk their own thin line between well-crafted art pop and progressive rock and have earned a constantly growing following in both camps. Though every album is different, the band has its own distinct sound, with lush vocal harmonies on top of thoughtful lyrics, in this case of a more nostalgic nature, hence the title track’s reference to watching old 8mm home movies.

This, the band’s sixth album and much anticipated follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘Black Rain’, features a line-up of Nick Beggs (bass and vocals), Frank van Bogaert (keyboards & vocals), Marty Townsend (guitars) and Marcus Weymaere (drums) and is the culmination of
three years work.

The sessions saw Nick Beggs assume the role of co-producer with Frank van Bogaert. ‘8mm’ is a fascinating collaboration between friends and kindred musical spirits and is their finest work to date.

New Zanov – Lost in the Future

Zanov is one of the first musicians to innovate in the world of electronic
music in France. His musical personality was formed by a combination
of his scientific training, his obsession with imagining the distant
future and his refusal of the musical constraints of the past.
In 1975 he discovered the Synthesizer and created his home studio with legendary

He produces 3 albums and gives several concerts, sharing his time with his job
as a computer engineer and is recognized for his already very personal musical universe. After a 30-year hiatus, he resumed his passion in 2014, equipping himself with modern synthesisers and composing new albums. He creates all his sounds according to his emotions, paying particular attention to their combination and their evolution. He composes music that is both simple and complex, ordered and unpredictable, from which beauty, emotions and surprises emerge on the edge of chaos.

And now 2023, at the dawn of his 76th birthday, a 7th album is released LOST IN THE FUTURE, which is the musical translation of his questioning about the future. This new album reflects the convergence of technological advancements and human experience, creating a captivating fusion of futuristic sounds and melodic elements. It suggests a sense of adventure, uncertainty and the enigmatic nature of what lies ahead.
