DEFINITIVOS


DEFINITIVOS

It was sheer enthusiasm when punk-craze hit Kortrijk in the late seventies. Frank Holvoet and Marnik Den Hert didn't really know how to handle a bass and a guitar, but that didn't really matter. And when they heard that drummer Rik Masselis was without a band, they didn't hesitate. Rik had already won the First Belgian Punk Contest with the P.I.G.Z. Now all they needed was a half crazy singer/frontman. That was the easy part : local wild boy Lucien Callewaert fitted the position perfectly. In the winter of 1980 the band recorded "The modern dance/Mr. C/All I know". It became an instant Indie-hit in Belgium and Northern France. The band had a strong following, started playing better but soon felt the need for an extra guitar. So young gun Peter Coppens joined the band. In 1982 they recorded "Courtrai tonight/Take over" produced by Serge Feys from TC Matic. The now five piece band did some TV work, played in France and recorded demo-songs for a break-through album that unfortunately never was released, because some problems hit the friends. Callewaert and Coppens were replaced by Philippe Decoene and Dominique Decandt aka Dee Jaywalker. An EP was released in 1985 featering "Sight seeing/Bilateral deals/François Besse".

But depression hit the Belgian music scene and silently an end came to the Definitivos. Rik, Dee and Frank continued as a 3-piece band, made an album and toured as The Whydads. But things never went completely quiet on the Definitivos front. People still pay hard cash in Australia and Japan for a genuine copy of "The modern dance".

So now the band is rising from the ashes. Rik, Frank, Dee and "cult-legend" Lucien have restarted the band...
