Front 242 turns 25!

Some news from Erik O'Brien of Transmission 242:

Just a little over a week to go for the 2 day 25 year anniversary extravaganza to be held in Brussels, Belgium on the 3rd and 4th of March. Here is a complete lineup of dj's and artists performing on these 2 days chosen by the band themselves.
  • For the Greater Good
  • David Carrets
  • Travailleurs En Trance
  • The Hacker
  • Seize
  • Nid & Sancy
  • Olivier Gosseries
  • Skyoz
  • Terence Fixmer
  • Hysterio
  • Tom Barman

Patrick and Richard will also do their Coder 23 DJ set and Jean-Luc DeMeyer will also unveil his Modern Cubism project. And of course performances by Front 242 as a whole.

If that is not enough, how about a Front 242 museum! A separate room has been set aside in the AB concert hall for a Front 242 museum which will host all sorts of surprises from the past. This 2 day event will surely blow the roof off of the AB and will be a memory that will surely last a lifetime.

Yours truly will be attending the event and will be sure to bring back a report. I will also be conducting interviews with all 4 of the members for the new website that has been long overdue.
Apologies yet again.

Do you have any questions you would like to ask? If you could meet any one band member or all what would you want to know? Write to me here at and I will compile the most interesting and like minded questions and have them posted on thenext version of

Please keep the questions intelligent. Personal lifestyle questions will not be asked. The premise of the interview will mainly focus on the bands reflection of their past 25 years. Try to keep questions in these confines.

Also to celebrate the 25 year anniversary and my 6th year as Transmission 242 U.S.A. all tour t-shirts from the recent Nov/Dec 2005 N. American Tour will be sold for $15.00 from now until March 31st. Normally these shirts were running online for $22 and $25. This is a considerable savings so get'em now as you will not see these prices again.

This is also your last week to get your hands on the limited edition signed and numbered lithographs. Please see website for details. Deposits must be received on Feb 28th.

Thank You All for your continued support through out the years. It truly is incredible the influence and impact the band has bought to so many lives and the loyalty that it has spurned.

Thank You to All who sent me their 25 year anniversary well wishes. Instead of forwarding them to the band I am printing them out and handing copies to the band members themselves. Thank You for taking the time to do so.

A personal thanks for your loyalty, e-mails and friendships that have come from our common interest. Thank You All for exceeding my expectations in the past years.

Sincerely and Truly,

Erik O'Brien
