magnusMagnus had released a new single: Look At Us Now. It will be the last single, since Tom and CJ Bolland have decided to stop with Magnus. They will release an EP and a best of within a couple of weeks and play a series of farewell-gigs next year.

In  Focus Knack Tom says that it was a difficult choice, but that he had way too much other things to do: making a new movie, recording a new Taxiwars-album and writing for the next dEUS-album.

There’s an interview with Tom and Flip Kowlier in Humo this week about the Silent City-concerts next week. Apparently, it will not be a Tom Barman-gig. Tom has invited  Aiming For Enrike and Leftfield and will be one of the eight guitarists in KillO-Meter, a composition by Peter Vermeersch.

Most interesting dEUS-related part was about the auditions for a new guitar player. Tom didn’t know a lot about it, since it was Stephane who took care of it. The only thing Tom knew was that two female musicians were invited.

Tom is also working on a documentary about his mother and her sister and it still writing on his second movie. dEUS will probably be back on track next year.

‘The charismatic front man of dEUS, the ever-inventive brain behind the jazz band Taxi Wars or the merciless tormentor of your limbs with his dance act Magnus: Tom Barman is a true creative genius whose talent knows no bounds. For GoneWest, Barman has found new inspiration in the pointless violence of the Battle of Passendale. In his own unique Barmanesque way, he provides us with an evening full of experimentation, with unexpected guests of international standing. ‘
