Interpol intelligently interprets Joy Division for contemporary ears. The trio originated from the campus of New York University. They first gained attention in the UK. In April 2001 the ever-vigilant (late) John Peel invited them to record a session for his trend-setting BBC radio show. A year later, Interpol were picked up by the American Matador label (Pavement, Spoon, Yo La Tengo). The album ‘Turn on the Bright Lights’ was one of the musical sensations of 2002 and they were soon seen as the Next Big Thing. The song ‘Evil’ topped the Studio Brussel Eindafrekening in 2005. Their latest album, ‘The Other Side of Make-Believe’ (2022) was recorded with top producers Alan Moulder and Flood. It’s good to see them again. After all, Interpol have already performed at Werchter four times (2003, 2005, 2007, and 2014).
