We met people who were in bands … so we started new bands. We made a record. With the money we made … We made new records. Basically … That’s what we still do. (Elko & Rudy – Heaven Hotel) In March appears “God Owes Us a Swimming Pool ‘- a compilation of stuff released between 1995 and 2015’, a double compilation album on vinyl (and CD) of the famed Antwerp label Heaven Hotel. In response to these and other (Tape Cuts Tape, The Tone Zone) releases draws Heaven Hotel driven by founders Rudy Trouvé and Elko Blijweert the country to be there for a number of label nights some of their artists set. Between interesting and representative, between obscure, improvise and surprisingly quirky. ___________________________________________________________________________________ The early nineties, is the legendary New York The Factory Around Andy Warhol and The Velvet Undergroundin near Antwerp Coninckpleindé The inspiration for a number of artistic young. Heaven Hotel shoots off to a good start as the kindred there involving a former brothel and create an artistic haven for musicians and visual artists (painter, graphic designer, animation or video) of varying provenance. What is particularly striking is that the philosophy, vision and typical style of Heaven Hotel through many years has remained intact. 1991 or 2015? Makes almost no difference. Musicians playing in bands. Bands go on cafe. At the cafe, they meet people who play in other bands. There are new bands. Those bands to make a record. The proceeds of the album are new plates made. As simple and easy as it can be, and that’s exactly the way Rudy Trouvéen Elko Blijweert (was like 14-year-old (!) All at the Antwerp Cattle market with Kiss My Jazz) Heaven Hotel today still fresh, challenging and relevant . “God Owes Us a Swimming Pool ‘traces the intriguing story of Heaven Hotel between 1995 and 2015.

The Norwegians shares Gore Slut even regularly stage. They are three times at Pukkelpop (1997 and 2x – yes – 2001) and be cuddled to death at that time by leading British magazines like NME and VOX. Again jumps dazzlingly beautiful cover art in the eye.
