In 2007, AB launched a timeless series: ◄◄ REWIND. Central to this series are Belgian artists who perform ‘their classic’. Call it a milestone in their career, or more so: a key album in Belgian pop music. It is often – but not always – about albums that are etched into collective memory. Call them points of reference in the Belgian music landscape. So, in other words, each ‘pièce de résistance’ is performed in its entirety. Completely? That’s right, in the exact order that the artist wanted (or still wants) to tell his/her tale.
With ◄◄ REWIND, AB also contributes to the activation of Belgian musical heritage. Already passed in revue:‘The Ideal Crash’ (dEUS ), ‘The Kids’ (The Kids), ‘Op Zoek Naar Romantiek’ (Guido Belcanto), ‘Jonge Helden’ (Arbeid Adelt!), ‘Gorky’ (Gorki),‘1981-1984’ (The Neon Judgement),‘Royalty In Exile’ (The Scabs), ‘Nooit Meer Drinken’ (Raymond Van Het Groenewoud), ‘De Mens’ (De Mens), ‘The Ship’ (Luc Van Acker), ‘Un Ball Dans La Tête’ (De Puta Madre), ‘Hè Hè’ (Jan De Wilde), ‘Laïs’ (Laïs), ‘Struggle for Pleasure’ (Wim Mertens) en ‘Little Things Of Venom’ (Arid).
An Pierlé plays ‘Mud Stories’ (1999)
In 1996, An Pierlé made a noteworthy appearance during Humo's Rock Rally with her pure version of ‘Are 'Friends' Electric?’ by Gary Numan's band Tubeway Army. That immediately catapulted her into the final of The Mother of All Rock Competitions. And, just like finalists Arid and Novastar, she took all the time she needed to allow her debut to fully ripen. So ‘Mud Stories’ appeared three years later, and right away on major Warner.
De Morgen was full of praise for her debut: "Een even sober als voldragen werkstuk, waarop alles in het teken staat van haar stem en percussieve pianospel. Niets belet de songs dus voor zichzelf te spreken. Nu eens klinken ze jachtig, energiek en losgeslagen, dan weer mijmerend en ingetogen. Een kleurig sprookjesboek met een donker randje".
With 16,000 copies sold, the album was an unexpected success – one that gave her a passe-partout for a much sought-after spot on stage at Rock Werchter in 2000.
As a part of the ◄◄ REWIND series, An Pierlé will play her classic ‘Mud stories’ (with a series of encores on top of that, of course) in its entirety.
