I learned about them from my younger brother who of course had chosen a music taste that was as much opposed to mine as possible. (How things have changed :D) But hearing records like A Split Seconds ...From the inside and Nitzer Ebbs That total age I just had to admit that there where some stuff from "the dark side" that was really interesting.
Ever since then I have been a huge fan of this cool Belgian band. They have succesfully combined dance rythms and electronics with rock attitude since the debut in 1986. I've seen them live once before on 1993, in Gothenburg, when they toured with the Vengeance C.O.D. album. It's almost 20 years ago, and it's 25 years after the debut. Can they possibly have something to offer an audience in 2011?
It only takes a couple of songs until I realise that A Split Second still is a really cool live act. It's not three youngsters that enters the stage, but what they may lack in youthful energy they make up for with lots and lots of stage presence and experience. They are really generous and play all their classic songs. It's also a really special feeling to hear Scandinavian bellydance live in Stockholm. A lot of happy feelings after this reunion with A Split Second.
