Aqsak Maboul – A Modern Lesson (Bo Diddley)

• “A Modern Lesson (Bo Diddley)” set to a picture of the housing album cover. Thanks to psychedeloo.

8.0 “Fantastic Prog from Belgium”

From their album “Un Peu de l’Âme des Bandits” released in January 1980.

This really is astonishing stuff” as I imagine Peelie might have said : – )

Aksak Maboul (also spelled Aqsak Maboul for a while) are a Belgian avant-rock band founded in 1977 by Marc Hollander and Vincent Kenis. They made two studio albums, Onze Danses Pour Combattre la Migraine (1977) and Un Peu de l’Âme des Bandits (1980), the last one with ex-Henry Cow members Chris Cutler and Fred Frith. They were also active in the Rock in Opposition movement in 1979. By the mid-1980s Aksak Maboul ceased functioning as a group, but became active again in 2010 when they produced a new track for a tribute album. In 2014 they resumed work on an unfinished album, Ex-Futur Album (by Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul), that they had begun between 1981 and 1983. The album came out in Europe in October 2014. The band started touring again in 2015, with a new line-up. ~ Wikipedia

Heard on Kevin Robinson’s August 2015 show on Dandelion Radio.

This was reissued by Crammed Discs lately, and you’ll find it there.
