Everyday I Wear A Greasy Black Feather On My Hat (1995)

(Island Records)


“Moondog Jr’s debut-CD is an excellent collection of songs that sometimes inclines towards Tom Waits and other times treads on dEUS stomping ground. Songs we cherish.” Dieter Bernaers BVL

A frail being with angelic hair, squeezing sad piano notes from his voice, is to die for in the moonlight. But a cloud passes and from the adjacent streets four devils appear armed with guitars, percussion, keyboards, bottleneck, grating doors, an enormous counter bass and a saxophone, and in the blink of an eye they recreate the atmosphere of St Germain des Prés..... or a dwelling in the port of Antwerp!” Abus Dangereux dec-janv by Cathimini

“Moondog Jr is eclectic. More acoustic, bluesier and jazzier than dEUS and with more pauses in the songs (-) Stef Kamil Carlens is a troubadour in rags with the face of an angel. Tattooed, chin-pierced, but oh so innocent and enchanting.” Rifraf
