Hey all,

I'll be shooting a new documentary in June while traveling with Borbetomagus on a mini-tour to Northampton and Montreal, hopefully Boston as well.

For part of the interview I would like to gather questions from fans or people who just want to ask them something. I would try and include as many questions as possible.

You can send your questions to jef@tapingpolicies.be - please use 'Borbeto question' as header/subject.

Hope to see some of you in June.

My ears are still ringing from the racket they made last year. Let's just say that their stage presence is grotesquely fantastic, particularly when they went into a mode that reminded me of the head of someone severely ill approaching the coma state.

Awesome.

If someone happens to attend to any of those shows, and could be so kind to buy Jef Mertens a drink on my behalf, that'd be cool .

Surely those performances will spawn an amazing film. Of course you'll be working, but i also hope you have a lot of fun, Jef!

Thanks, narlus. I know Jef has been on this Borbetomagus short tour, he'll probably post some updates soon. I can't wait to see your photos...

wow, hadn't checked this thread in a while. The short tour was great of course. Got some great interviews and gathered some good footage.

At the moment I'm still working out how to assemble everything and am also looking for some old Borbetomagus footage which is not an easy hunt.

Narlus, yeah I was the one with the black Canon. Pictures look really good
My footage is way darker as there was only 1 light working.

I will keep you guys posted on the film and you can check the link in my earlier post for updates.

I've put a new website online for the documentary in production.
Including a sneak preview into the 1st part of the film.
