The tension of hard touring and life on a major label led to Rudy leaving dEUS to concentrate on a host of bands including Kiss My Jazz, Gore Slut, Dead Man Ray and The Love Substitutes. He also formed his own label Heavenhotel and is an acclaimed artist whose work adorns many album covers including the cover for ‘On Your House’. Pox formed in Antwerp in 2005 when Mark Meyers and Koen van de Camp decided they wanted to soup up the sound of their previous co-operation Plank. Jurgen Leclerq, an old acquaintance and guitarist in Wall of Sweat, was asked to join on bass. After a couple of rehearsals with drummer Bekin Ratta, Rudy Trouvé joined the band.
With this line-up a first demo was recorded. A decision is made to simplify the drum sound en Craig Ward (dEUS/The Love Substitutes) takes to the drum seat. A single track is recorded for the Jezus Factory compilation album. The recording of a full cd is scheduled but the nomadic nature of Craig (who moves to another country) leaves Pox in need of a new drummer.
Percussionist Dirk D'Hooge tries out and in no time masters the minimalistic drumming Craig had introduced. Craig returns to Antwerp briefly during the recording of ‘Down on your House’, adding a couple of overdubs and mainly joining Rudy on the producing/mixing side of things. “Tom Waits with a crate of lozenges. It’s a truly great thing that whatever demons do or don’t drive Mr Meyers have allowed him to make what stands as his definitive statement.” Music4m ”It feels like sex with a delayed orgasm.” Riff Raff Running Order Waiting 'Till You're Gone Stay Maybe Someone No More Cry Now Walk Around Same Old Me Broken This Room Leave Me Like a Friend Read more on Last.fm.
