This year, “Half-Mute”, the monumental debut by Tuxedomoon was reissued. A perfect opportunity for this band to perform again with the same energy and quirkiness that was so representative for these guys. Many people tried to, but no one succeeded in putting a specific label on the jazz-inspired post-punk of Tuxedomoon.
In the early 80s Steven Brown, Blaine L. Reininger and Peter Principle left their homeland America for Europe, as alternative music fans in this part of the world seemed to appreciate Tuxedomoon’s music much more. Luc van Lieshout joined the band and in little time they became somehow a cult phenomenon. Melancholy, contrariness, fear and unpredictability made "Holy Wars" one of the most beautiful and timeless records of the 80's.
