Red Zebra - I'm Falling Apart 7" 1981

Fantastic cold-wave from Bruges (Belgium)

Started out as a band of four sixteen-year-olds in 1978 under the name of The Bungalows. After learning to play some instruments and a name change to Red Zebra, they debut with a self-produced, self-written and self-sold EP. On this EP figures the song "I can't live in a living room". This biting indictment of bourgeois society became a radio-hit and is considered one of Belgium's finest cult classics. After another single (I'm Falling Apart/TV Activity, here ripped for your pleasure) they record the mini-album "Bastogne" in 1981. Riding on the "cold"- and "new"-wave, this record has quite an impact. Their first full-length album "Maquis" of 1983 (which is preceded by the singles "Lust/The beauty of the beast" and "Polar Club") gets received with mixed feelings, after which the group goes into a lull and splits up completely in 1986.

Contrary to popular belief Red Zebra never really split up for real... yes there's been like 3000 reincarnations ...

Red Zebra is the first gig I ever went to on my own , I was like 13 or 14 .... A truly monumental reunion gig in the notorious club called "Zaal Rustenhove" (pun intended)
