FES, once described as an existential variety farce with a twist of bitter, sounds familiar, just add gin.

About the Album

The Jubilee Album by Flat Earth Society released in 2013. FES was founded in 1998, when no-nonsense artist, former architect, clarinettist, saxophonist, keyboard player, composer and producer Peter Vermeersch, wanted to explore new horizons.

In the past they worked with various guest musicians: Uri Caine, Toots Thielemans, Mike Patton (Fantômas), Jimi Tenor, John Watts and more recently Ernst Reijseger. 13 is a round number according to Flat Earth Society and so it’s a jubilee year! We raise the flag and sing our song. On our new album, which we conveniently called "13", we serve you our usual unusual portion of gas, chaos & chazz. The 13th album contains 13 new pieces, some more instrumental than the other. The musical journey defies varying landscapes and weather conditions, the orchestra remains ever fresh and unshaven, the music is our pocketknife and compass, the words are of a profoundly deep depth.

Flat Earth Society is and remains Belgium's most original and most daring 'big band'. Not in the traditional sense of the word, but simply because they are 15. The influences are many in their far from traditional ‘big band’ music.
