@LEGUESSWHO tips by Eppo Janssen @pukkelpop @stubru - Caribou, Baths, Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat

We have asked our favorite promoters, festivals and bands to tip their three recommendations from this year's Le Guess Who? festival line-up. This edition: Eppo Janssen (Pukkelpop, Studio Brussel).

Caribou (Fri 26 Nov)
His ‘Odessa’ single completely blew me away and when the album ‘Swim’ arrived I couldn’t stop listening to it for weeks. Invited him to Trix once and Pukkelpop twice and his band totally blew me away every time.If one could make love while dancing on drugs this would be the music.

Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat (Fri 26 Nov)
You know, we Belgians have nasty habits. But kissing the anus of a black cat isn’t ours. It was once a medieval witch ritual of which no-one seems to know what it actually was good for. What we know: listening to the Belgian band with the same name makes you wanna absorb all the darkness this neofolk outfit is spreading. Wasn’t it Tim Hardin who once sang ‘How can we hang on to a drone’?

Baths (Sat 27 Nov)
I only know the haunting sounds of his song ‘Lovely bloodflow’. I was in love with Nosaj Thing last year. Think I’ll go for Baths in 2011. Also ery curious to know if he also makes noises with his impressive sideburns.

Tomorrow, the Le Guess Who? festival will start with the exclusive (sold-out) show by SWANS. Le Guess Who? bookers Bob van Heur and Johan Gijsen will be posting the final Le Guess Who? tips on this blog.
