Apparently brand new and kept top scret by..... Sony Records.......
 
 
The first two Kandahar albums have been reissued.
 
Both Long Live Sliced Ham and In The Court Of Catarina Squeezer are much worthy of Belgium surrealist music scene  and Belgium's answer to Supersister.
 
 

Long live the sliced ham (Re-issue) (2009)

CD, 8 tracks
Sony Music Belgium (BE) 88697507902

 

In the court of Catherina Squeezer (Re-issue) (2009)

CD, 6 tracks
Sony Music Belgium (BE) 88697507912

Unfortunately, they don't mention their third album Pictures From The Past

Oooooooh!

Great news, Hugues!

I must get these.  I really enjoy these first two albums.  I also hope they've been remastered 'cause the sound is a bit shabby on the cassette/vinyl versions I've heard.

You spoke too soon, Hugues!

They're not mindblowingly amazing but they have this unique charm that makes me listen to them more often than not.

So having both these releases on CD will be wonderful.  The sound quality of my copies are terrible too.

I got them on order and they're going to be cheap too.
 
It should come down to a mid-price dzeal.

I'd say it was more Belgian Jazz with some progginess but it's cool nevertheless!

Most of my favourite bands are from Belgium.

Oh, that's disappointing.

However, just having them on CD is still excellent.  Although I could just make a CD-R... I'm guessing they're better quality than the cassette/vinyl rips though?

I've warned Greg Walker (Syn-Phonic) and he told me he would getthem on his catalogue....
 
But you can probably go to your store and order them as well.
 
They've been seen in some record shops in Belgium.
