about

They will probably never outdo Frank Zappa, but the band Keiki has already released several records: 3 albums and one EP. Only one of these wasn't put out by Cheap Satanism Records and it has now almost sold out. To celebrate the record's 5th anniversary, it made sense to make it available to a wider audience through a digital release.

In 2006, Keiki sees the light as a trio: vocals, guitar, bass, with a drum machine and a theremin. Within months the band was recording its debut album, 10 Pieces. The sleeve, made in pure DIY style, was put together using a piece of gauze and two colours: black and white. Initially destined to be released on the trio's own Puppy Farm Records, the album fell into the hands of Glock Music, a small UK-based label. There were talks of a release in Great-Britain. Sadly, shortly after, Glock Music imploded and a first batch of 10 Pieces was hanging in limbo somewhere in England. Keiki kept the faith and sold most of its albums at gigs.

You can now re-discover and download Keiki's minimalist, melodic, eccentric electro-rock and vaguely pop style of its early days. Their basic ingredients - twisted guitars, compromise-free female vocals, quirky lyrics, wild theremin, melodic bass lines, no frills drum machine - are bound to seduce those who like to colour outside the lines. Vice Magazine gave it a 7/10 rating and Penny Rimbaud from Crass became a fan.

about

keiki Brussels, Belgium

"Far out and groovy" --Penny Rimbaud (Crass)

Keiki is a "satanic pop" duo. Their music is a subtle alchemy made up of catchy melodies, perverse guitars, groovy drum machines and supernatural sounds which stem from their theremin. Keiki conjure up the spirit of Black Sabbath, Scout Niblett, The Dead Kennedys, Deerhoof, Add N To X, Lightning Bolt and LL Cool J. ... more
