Oh La La La… after 70 years, we already know: Arno, our idol from Ostend celebrates his birthday on May 21. This year with a fresh single as gift for 'le plus beau': 'Oostende Bonsoir', a fearless foretaste of the new CD 'Santeboutique', out on Pias.
For the young folks who, Putain Putain, don’t (yet) know this pedigree performer: Arno has been a provider of the most original euro-blues-rock for a half century now. Under his own name but also with the groundbreaking T.C. Matic (or the more recent rougher variant Tjens Matic) up to and including Charles et Les Lulus or The Subrovnicks. Aside from that, with room too for the most touching chansons – often 'à la française' as well – that he was even honoured for in France as 'Sir Arno' (and in the meantime he has also become an Honorary Citizen of his current hometown, Brussels.)
