In February of 2008 label founder Capt. Daydream spent five
days of winter holiday in Brussels visiting I Like This Wind
in the cosy neighbourhood of Ixelles. Yeah, Belgium... land
of tasty beer, quality chocolate, amazing comic books, real
waffles and art
nouveau buildings. In short: good things.
The plan was to check out the city a bit, but also to get
some recording done. It was possible to find a few
cool shops among all the posh antique shops, hair dressers
and unlimited number of churches. Took some work. Most importantly
the basic tracks of guitar and vocals for a handful of great
songs were recorded. When the last small bits have been recorded
and the whole thing mixed we hope to have a nice EP ready
later this year.
The basic material for a future music video was also shot.
A rather spur of the moment thing which looks like it could
turn out really nice once its edited.
On this page are collected a few impressions from those couple
Night time... sending those Gibson sounds through the old
Rehearsing and tuning a bit.
Laying down some guitar tracks.
Listening to the results on the Mac.
Doing vocals looks like this.
Keeping track of the work done and the work ahead.
Going to the small local market for delicious things to eat.
The Ixelles neighbourhood looks kinda cozy.
An easy place to spend money: Peinture Fraiche at 10 rue du

There was also time for a visit to the comic book museum.
The museum is in the organic art nouveau style.
I was possible to find a nice record shop even though
it took a while. The Collector
has been there for 29 years. Go to Rue de la Bourse (Beurssstraat)
26. Lots of vinyl!
Packing down all the tech stuff before going back to Denmark.
