10.09 A SPLIT-SECOND + LEAETHER STRIP + ELM + Knk @ De Casino - B
BodyBeats Productions & De Casino present: 
Not Just another EBM day
@ De Casino - St.Niklaas - B 
BodyBeats Productions and De Casino proudly present: “Just Another EBM” day, an evening with some great and legendary bands within the Wave, electro & EBM scene, supplemented with some wild and younger electro violence! A SPLIT-SECOND should not need further introduction as they scored their first (underground) hit already in 1986, with their cult 12” single ‘Flesh’. Evil tongues even claim that this song could be heard near the cradle of the Belgian New Beat hype/movement of the late 80s. LEAETHER STRIP is one of the Scandinavian legends within the electro / EBM (Electronic Body Music) scene that has been touring the world continuously since the late 1980s. Over the years, this Dane managed to put together a remarkably impressive oeuvre, what do you think of 42 albums? The hard hitting EBM from ELM and the Noisy electro of Knk will spice up this night! Of course resident DJ BORG will provide the afterparty beats for you party people!

De Casino - St Niklaas - B
This year BODYBEATS celebrates the 20th edition of it’s worldwide known and renowned sympathetic alternative underground music festival; BIMFEST, or Belgian Independent Music Festival in full. Also this year we think we can say we succeeded once more in putting together an attractive and varied line-up.
And like the BIMFEST tradition wants it, also this time with a variety of national and international established names such as Alvar (SE), AMNISTIA (D) Fïx8:Sëd8 (D), The Juggernauts (B), Soft Riot (UK) and Severe Illusion (SE), complemented by newer, perhaps lesser known, but definitely not to be missed, shooting stars such as TC75 (D), Nuclear Sludge (SE), Potochkine (FR), Tilly Electronics (D) and Sierra (FR). Besides the smashing electro they make, those last three have another thing in common, a strong mesmerizing front woman!
One of those other infamous BIMFEST traditions is reactivating long-term inactive bands and artists for an exclusive live show at BIMFEST… And look, this year we managed to wake the legendary and Belgian electro-industrial duo SONAR (B) out of hibernation, a hibernation that lasted no less than 8 years!
The absolute icing on this 20th BIMFEST cake edition is of course the appearance of FRONT 242, THE Belgian pride and founders of the EBM (Electronic Body Music) genre! This legendary combo was also present at 10 year BIMFEST celebration so they had to come back! Recently these gentlemen had their own 40th anniversary celebration at the, 2 day’s in a row sold-out, Ancienne Belgique.
But that's is not even all! Because on Saturday 03.12. THE English industrial pioneers of TEST DEPT are programmed as headliner! 10 years ago, and at the specific request and insistence of the BIMFEST, this band was revived after a hiatus of more than 20 years! Meanwhile, their live shows have been known as unmissable spectacles for over 40 years! So Don’t miss out and order those tickets now!
