Belgium Underground : interview of Patrick Stas

At the beginning of the 1980’s a label emerge from nowhere. It was called Home Produkt and offered a strange music in an even stranger packaging. Patrick Stas, the founder of this label, has told us the genesis of such pearls of belgium’ s underground music as the compilation “Brabançonnes”, a double cassette containing more than thirty versions of the national anthem, or “An Der Schönen Blauen Donau”, thirty covers of the Blue Danube, accompanied by a cardboard trout. He explained his fascination for multiple art objets and the story of Jean-Claude Charlier and his orchestra, and of Tarzan, the friend of the elephants.
