More Info

Dead Belgian have been re-imaging the songs of Jacques Brel since 2007. 

The current line up features Matthew Wood (accordion, vocals) Simon James (sax, flute, mandolin, mandola, vocals) Andy Delamere (percussion, vocals) and new members, from Liverpool’s alt-pop trio 'Stealing Sheep', Lucy Mercer (vocals, percussion) and Micky Dunne (guitar) who also plays with Liverpool Django Reinhardt specialists 'Manouchetones'.

“Dead Belgian’s deliciously ramshackle approach deconstructs Brel the icon to reclaim him as a street musician, chanson maestro and people’s champion.” - MOJO

“The way to perform to perform Brel is to throw yourself at it, and the dramatic 

Dead Belgian do that with aplomb.” - UNCUT

“An unlikely bunch who’ve gone several stops beyond in the restorative promotion of very possibly the greatest Belgian in the history of the world ever. And they are terrific.” - fROOTS
