Biography of The Wrong Object

Blending psychedelic jazz with modern rock sensibilities, the music of The Wrong Object is influenced by a vast array of artists ranging from Canterbury Scene prog-jazz-rock à la Soft Machine, Nucleus and Gong to Béla Bartok, Aka Moon, Charlie Mingus and Frank Zappa. While their repertoire contains mainly original compositions, they also play a special set of Zappa covers on demand. Since its creation in early 2002, The Wrong Object has played almost eighty concerts in various venues ranging from small pubs to big festivals. Some of them were augmented by guest performances by the likes of Ed Mann (of Frank Zappa hall of fame), Elton Dean (legendary Soft Machine and British jazz icon), Harry Beckett (British jazz legend), Annie Whitehead (who often plays and records with Robert Wyatt), Alex Maguire (of Hatfield & The North), Robin Verheyen, Marc Mangen, Domguè, Marco Maurizi, Nicolas Ankoudinoff, Clementine Gasser, Frogg Café, Jaap Blonk, and pataphysician-poet-vocalist Andrew Norris, whose work with the band culminated in a show held at the Galerie 2016 in Brussels on the occasion of Serge Vandercam's 79th birthday. After a successful mini-tour of the UK, they performed at the 2004 “Zappanale” festival where they played a special gig featuring Zappa's legendary percussionist Ed Mann, with whom they also hope to play a few more dates soon. The Wrong Object have since then played in many different countries (including England, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, , Slovakia, Luxembourg and even in their own country Belgium) and their live recordings have been favorably reviewed and aired by radio stations across the globe. They will continue to perform in pubs, clubs and theaters next year and will play Summer festivals abroad. Their side projects “Elton Dean Meets The Wrong Object” and “The Wrong Object feat. Annie Whitehead and Harry Beckett” were documented by two CD releases issued by Moonjune Records and Voiceprint. “Storied From The Shed”, being released on MoonJune records in February 2008, is the band’s first studio album.
