Flat Earth Society ~ Kotopoulopology ~ Cheer Me, Perverts!

Released in 2009, Cheer Me, Perverts! is an anagram of Flat Earth Society’s Peter Vermeersch — clarinetist and bandleader of Belgium’s Flat Earth Society. The 14-piece jazz ensemble play music like few others; with both feet planted firmly in the avant-garde, Vermeersch and co. engage the listener in a dual, move or be moved almost. The ten tracks that comprise this, their ninth record veer from circular insanity towards a hypnotic anarchy…an album that sounds joyous and debauched — an album that should vie for best jazz disc of 2009. Belgium’s Flat Earth Society would be spurned by the Lincoln Centre, as they turn the big band on its head, shuffling musical genres like a pack of cards. ~ excerpts from several reviews
