News: Sony of Belgium to release the Kandahar albums!

Well as unbelievable as it sounds, Sony Music of Belgium (I didn't even know Sony had a special division in Belgium?) has reissued the first two Kandahar albums "Long Live the Sliced Ham" and "In the Court of Catherine Squeezer". Kandahar were a Belgian group influenced by Zappa and Canterbury, somewhat like Supersister and Pazop, though perhaps more zany like Dr. Dopo Jam. I need to listen to these again!

These were posted on a blog at one time and I checked them out. Some people are going to be disappointed if they expect quality in the realm of the bands they have been compared to. I found them uninspired and bland. Proceed with caution.

Hi Anonymous,

Not sure I disagree with you at all. I've heard Kandahar in the past, and I wasn't too impressed. However, it had been so long since I had, I didnt want to diffuse the enthusiasm. Unfortunately, though, I may end up agreeing with your assessment. Another band like this was Storm from Sweden, which I never could get into.

In any case, I plan on revisiting he first two Kandahar's very soon.

Thanks for reading and for the comment.
