Belgium Underground: interview with Xavier Ess

2 February 2016

In 1978, Thrills, the band formed by Xavier Ess with Stephan Barbery and Alain Lefebvre is one of the first punk bands in Belgium. In line with the most radical ideas of the time, they chose to disband one year later to avoid success and the risks of sellout. Xavier Ess will then team with Alain Neffe (founder of the label Insane) and Guy-Marc Hinant (future co-founder of Sub Rosa) to create Pseudocode, a trio of improvised and experimental music that will also have a short lived (2 years) career. The band is now widely recognized as a pionneer of the experimental and industrial music scene.
