For those of you who (still) wonder why there are forty seconds without music during Royalsucker (around 1:40), it's because the four performers of Venus stand rock-still, like manikins, during this break. It might seem strange, but it fits perfectly the song on stage...

Concert in Montpellier (France), February 17th, 2000

Good sound recording.
Recorded by Sam. Visit his great music site, with a few nice Venus pictures from the concert ! Many thanks to you, pal.

All Apologies
Listen to a cover of Nirvana's All Apologies, recorded live the 10th of december 2000 during a private concert in the Halles von Schaerbeek (around Brussels), with the same Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles with whom Venus recorded The man who was already dead in September 26th.

I don't think that the members of the Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles actually play on this particular track. Anyway, as far as we know, this concert was the last public appearance of Venus before their current "holidays".
[Many thanks to Kevin]

The man who was already dead, Cirque Royal, Brussels, Sept. 26, 2000

Seven minutes of grace. This is a small part of the unique show played by Venus and the Ensemble Musique Nouvelle where all songs were reorchestrated by Renaud Lhoest. This is the same version as on the record.
Real file (you'll need the player). Medium quality but very small window.
