The Wrong Object

Profile Views: 970

Blending the cosmic energies of Nu-jazz with modern rock sensibilities and live eletronic devices, the music of the Wrong Object is influenced by a vast array of artists ranging from Canterbury Scene prog rock la Soft Machine and Gong to Squarepusher, Bla Bartok, Amon Tobin, Aka Moon, Charlie Mingus and Frank Zappa. While their repertoire contains mainly original compositions, they also play a special set of Zappa covers on demand.

Since its creation in early 2002, The Wrong Object has has collaborated with guest musicians such as Ed Mann, Elton Dean, Harry Beckett, Annie Whitehead, Alex Maguire, Bart Maris, Robin Verheyen, Marc Mangen, Domgu, Marco Maurizi, Nicolas Ankoudinoff, Clementine Gasser, Frogg Caf, Jaap Blonk, and pataphysician-poet-vocalist Andrew Norris, whose work with the band culminated in a show held at the Galerie 2016 in Brussels on the occasion of Serge Vandercam's 79th birthday.

After a successful mini-tour of the UK, they performed at the 2004 Zappanale festival where they played a special gig featuring Zappa's legendary percussionist Ed Mann, with whom they also hope to play a few more dates soon. The Wrong Object have since then played in many different countries (including England, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Czekia, Slovakia, Wales, Greece, Luxembourg and even Belgium) and their live recordings have been favorably reviewed and aired by radio stations across the globe. They will continue to perform in pubs, clubs and theaters next year and will play Summer festivals abroad. Their side projects Elton Dean Meets The Wrong Object and The Wrong Object feat. Annie Whitehead and Harry Beckett were documented by two CD releases issued by Moonjune Records and Voiceprint. The Wrong Object's new studio album was released by Moonjune Records in 2008.
