Biography

Sint-Niklaas, Belgium (1995 – present)

Hooverphonic is a Belgian / group formed in 1995. Though initially placed in the genre, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be classified so easily. The band originally called themselves Hoover but later changed their name to Hooverphonic due to other groups using the Hoover name.

The band achieved international recognition through the inclusion of the track 2Wicky (from A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular) on the to Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1996 film Stealing Beauty (Io Ballo da Sola).

The original members of the group were vocalist Liesje Sadonius, keyboardist Frank Duchêne, bass guitarist and programmer Alex Callier, and guitarist Raymond Geerts. Sadonius left Hooverphonic on amicable terms shortly after the release of A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular and was replaced by Geike Arnaert in early 1998. Duchêne left the band after Blue Wonder Power Milk. Arnaert left the band in 2008 and was succeeded by Noémie Wolfs.

Hooverphonic released their fifth studio album No More Sweet Music in November 2005, featuring four singles: Wake Up, You Hurt Me, Dirty Lenses and We All Float. One year later they released a Best Of album called Singles 96-06. This was their last release under the Sony label.

Hooverphonic released their latest album The President Of The LSD Golf Club on 8th October 2007 in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium and Holland, which includes the single Expedition Impossible. European Release January 2008 (although available via mail-order). This was an independent release, recorded at the Willie Nelson studios in the USA.

    Just rediscovered them. Like a lot of their music, but A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular is their best work.

    I like them no matter who's singing. Liesje, Geike, and Noémie are all talented in their own ways. (2) I agree!

    Geike's solo album blows their last two without her away. Hoping the third album with Noémie will go back to pushing boundaries... I've got nothing against Noémie, but their music has become quite boring since Geike left, with the exception of a few tracks, most notably Amalfi.
