La Boule Noire - Paris - SIGLO XX

40 years ago punk was taking Belgium by storm. Just about anyone could grab an

instrument and start pounding away on it. And that’s exactly what we did in our

neighbourhood in Genk with Siglo XX, which is the name of a mine in Bolivia by the

way, but we chose it mainly because we thought the Xs were so cool. We kept on

doing this for 13 years: making music, over and over again, different every time, but

always true to ourselves, stubborn, defying trends and great expectations. We

recorded albums that sold internationally and we toured Belgium, the Netherlands,

France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Hungary.

For some reason we struck a chord with a broader audience and they kept on

following us through the years – and still do – and they’ve been joined by a younger

crowd that is catching on to us through the Internet.

Because 40 is quite a respectable age, Onderstroom Records is re-releasing the

first three Siglo XX 12-inches, remastered but with the original artwork. These

records, which have become collector’s items over the years, will be available

separately and in a boxed edition.

And since music belongs on stage – Siglo XX’s music is no exception – the band will

be performing live again … On Saturday, May 19th 2018 Siglo XX will be playing

as headliner an exclusive concert at the Wave-Gotik-Treffen Festival in Leipzig.
