Belgium - Full Moon 72 - 08/22/02
Belgian progressive rock band The Silk have no record deal, but they are working on it. This
EP should take care of that if the right people hear it.
Fronted by the highly expressive Jo Douchamps, they put plenty of imagination into their
songs. "Safe" is a deftly paced, airy song that has Douchamps sounding like Dagmar Krause. "Smell
of Success" is propelled by well played percussion and eccentric vocals. It's frantic and
exotic sounding. The melancholy "The rats" is another great song. Alan Delsaux's guitar plays
off Douchamps's voice beautifully. The closing epic "Home Sweet Home" is a fine song with an
improvisational feel to it.
It's a great EP so here's hoping someone releases it. If not the band may do it
themselves. More info is at their site.
