The Hooverphonic group was born with the medium from the Nineties
from the meeting in Brussels de Alex Callier (bass player and
programmer), Frank Duchêne (keyboard) and Raymond Geerts
(guitarist). Their passion for the music quickly becomes stronger
than all and the trio starts to compose its own titles to inspire
by groups like "Massive Attack" or "Portishead".
In 1995, whereas
the group made come in studio a girl (Esther) to record the
second voices of certain titles, they realize that that corresponds
better to their music. Esther, too young (16 years) to take
part in the group, is to replace by Liesje Sadonius and the
group records its first album "A New Stereophonic Sound
Spectacular" which leaves in 1996. Criticism is unanimous
and hello with pleasure this new group of the Belgian scene
which quickly exports out of the borders thanks to the title
"2Wicky". In 1997, Liesje leaves the group, it is
replaced by Geike Arnaert and its pleasant voice, évanescente
and surprising sometimes, which gives to the group its so particular
style. The second album ("Blue Wonder Power Milk")
leaves into 98, its cinematographic orchestrations which make
travel the spirit. Frank Duchêne leaves the group after
the recording of the third album "The Magnificent Tree"
with the tube impossible to circumvent "Mad About You".
In 2002, the group returns with a somewhat different album,
a homage to the Sixties "Hooverphonic Presents Jackie Cane",
then 2005 should be waited until to discover "No More Sweet
Music", a double album on which the 13 titles are included
twice in different styles for even more mélodieux pleasures.
