A Group


A Group is a Belgian avantgarde pop band. The group was formed by Peter Vermeersch and Pierre Vervloesem after the demise of X-Legged Sally. A Group mainly plays mutated covers of familiar pop songs. Peter Vermeersch once compared the way of working to taking apart a clock to see how it works, and then putting it back together again. The sound of A Group is a mix between cabaret, jazz and rock.
