Hooverphonic

I've had the song Mad About You for a while on mp3 but never really bothered to look up the band. Now, thanks to Yahoo LaunchCast (isn't it amazing?), I got to hear most of a previous album of theirs, called Blue Wonder Power Milk.

It's pretty good. Any Hoover fans here on interference?

actually, I'm asking myself what end have they done, don't they do any release anymore? It's a long time I don't hear about them

They are from Belgium and actually just released a new album.
They are very popular and one of the biggest bands in Belgium.

I don't have all the albums but my personal favourite is The Magnificent Tree

BTW.. I didn't know they were known outside Belgium (perhaps also in Holland, but Canada???)

albums
2005 - No More Sweet Music (2CD)
2003 - Sit Down and Listen to Hooverphonic
2002 - Hooverphonic Presents Jackie Cane
2000 - The Magnificent Tree
1998 - Blue Wonder Power Milk
1997 - A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular

Well the first time I heard Mad About You (which is on Magnificent Tree I believe) was in France a couple of years ago, on an ad for the Highways (autoroutes). I sent them an email to know who was singing... I obviously wasn't the first to ask...

I don't think they're very well known here in Québec/Canada...
But any trip-hop fan knows of them I think...

i picked up a new sterophonic sound spectacular a few years ago at a used cd place after hearing the very awesome 2wicky. the rest of the album is alright, though it doesn't beat portishead or massive attack. haven't heard anything else by them.
