Biography

1997; Born for Bliss, existing since 1994, awakes with the overwhelming “Flowing with the Flue”. The roots of this fact are placed over a decade ago. In those times the Dutch Born for Bliss-members Frank Weyzig and Willem van Antwerpen created thrilling sounds together with the still cultic (Clan of) Xymox. During the early, exiting period of this electronic-wave legend (mid till end of the 80’s), Frank and Wim have been involved with this band. From this period result the first two Xymox albums which are still classic highlights.

Since 1995 the third member of Born for Bliss is Remco Helbers. He found his way to Born for Bliss via the Dreamside and Love Like Blood on stage. With his very own style of playing the Chapman Stick, Remco adds a special dimension to the Born for Bliss-sound.

Together, this trio guarantees an ultimate seductive sound output which was proved impressively by their pre-released cd-single “Arabia” (for ‘Nuclear Blast - Deathwish Office’) in 1996. In that same year this single became an addicting club hit and made its way high into the German alternative charts.

We’re back in 1997. Now, ‘Flowing with the Flue’ marks Born For Bliss’ long desired long play-debut. “With Impressive elegance the band produced a couple of fascinating pearls. The sounding potpourri impresses with original songwriting, interesting arrangements and charismatic vocals. Already in the first week after its release, ‘Flowing with the Flue’ entered high into the German alternative album-charts”.
