February 2010: Arid's fourth studio album - entitled ‘Under The Cold Street Lights’ - was released and launched to the general public at 2 sold out ABconcerts. The band based around singer Jasper Steverlinck recorded a live DVD during those concerts and it will be in stores as of mid February 2011. To emphasise the fact, Arid will be playing an exclusive ABconcert on Saturday 19 February. In the meantime you can make acquaintance with the 2 singles from the aforementioned album via radio waves.
After their Rock Rally final in 1996 (the grand crû year with Novastar, Tom Helsen and An Pierlé), Arid was quite rightly offered a record deal. Their debut ‘Little Things Of Venom’ was released in 2000 with the assistance of Piet Goddaer (Ozark Henry) and David Dewaele (Soulwax). The singles ‘Life’ and ‘Believer’ immediately brought the band to the attention of the general public. Successor ‘All Is Quiet Now’ was released in 2002, with hit singles ‘You Are’ and ‘Everlasting Change’, but that very same year singer Jasper Steverlinck went solo and scored a huge hit with his version of ‘Life On Mars', with thanks to David Bowie for the original song and the Kolacny brothers for the packaging. His debut solo album ‘Songs Of Innocence’ was a big success too. In 2008 Arid confirmed its status once again, with the album ‘All Things Come In Waves’ on which the singles ‘Why Do You Run’ And ‘Tied To The Hands’ are to be found. Wallonia also finally fell for their exceptional pop-rock and so Jasper & Co can now also count on innumerable fans below the language-border.
Belgium's Transcoder can draw upon more than 40 years of rock history and so are quite difficult to peg. The attentive listener will hear influences of The Stooges, Sonic Youth, Joy Division ... blues-rock, garage-rock, punk, new-wave, grunge, each influence finding its place in the Transcoder sound in an extremely organic manner. The current line-up is: Jan Van Acker (vocals), Philip Verbrugge (bass), Francis Isebaert (guitar), Maarten Baert (drums).
