"Shoegaze" is a musical genre that spawned offsprings all over the world, including Belgium. Mosaic Eyes was a 4-piece hailing from a place called Nivelles, about 20 miles south of Brussels. Now the only reason I'm mentioning this is because if you own (and you should) Sarah Records' There And Back Again Lane compilation, you've already read about Nivelles. On page 30 of the booklet you'll find Matt & Clare's account of a poorly organised Heavenly gig in Belgium:
"December 28th 1991. We're in Brussels, or what we were promised would be Brussels but is actually this nameless and drab little dormitory town a few miles outside the ring-road  and of course no-one's done any publicity.  We're given meals in the pizza restaurant a few doors down the road, Heavenly at one table, the TVPs  at the next... we eat, drink, play to an empty room and then spend the night on a cold hard floor fifteen miles south in Nivelles (...)"
 Merchtem (14 miles north of Brussels)
 that acronym stills baffles me today. Textured Vegetable Proteins?
Surprisingly the local tourism office hasn't tried to capitalize on the town's contribution to indie pop history. As if the collegiate church and the tarte al d'jote were enough to lure in international indie pop kids...
