    For a half second there, I thought and was hoping this was about a reunion of the Bosstown Sound band from 1968.

    Nope.

    Avant-prog/big-band-jazz/film-score/Zappaphile band from Belgium. 15 pieces: 5 brass (including an attractive blonde woman on, incongruously, tuba), 5 reeds (including two clarinet/bass-clarinet players), 5 rhythm (including a vibes player, and the keyboardist from Univers Zero). Crazed, rackety, and great fun. Their leader, Peter Vermeersch, plays clarinet, looks like Fripp's dissolute little brother, and writes great stuff - sometimes a little lightweight but thoroughly enjoyable, and a bit like a more rock-oriented Willem Brueker Kollekteif. They formed out of the fine avant band X-Legged Sally.

    good for them.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Yeah and it can't be easy touring with a 15-piece band. I kick myself for missing the opportunity to see 'em. Probably won't never happen again.
