The Excessives where a very promising belgian garagerockband, based in Mechelen (Flanders). They where going to make it. At least: so it seemed. Their first album “Wild Waves”(1990), released on JP VAN’s “Boom!-label”, only available on vinyl) was mixture of acoustic guitar songs and garagerock. The follow up was “Disco Colorado” (1991), also released on Boom!, was more ‘electric’ & heavy tuned and injected grunge.

At that time some fans compared them with the likes of Nirvana and spoke of “the belgian Nirvana”…

The band’s energetic live shows putted the band on the same level as bands such as The Paranoiacs and The Spanks.

After the album “Disco Colorado” an EP, “Snaps, Crackles & Pops” followed but after that the band broke up. Some of the members of The Excessives were also active in the band DILDO WARHEADS wich career was somewhat more succesfull…
