Founded by Frank Van Bogaert back in 1980,
1000 Ohm was one of the most succesful Belgian
80’s New Wave bands. Key members where Johan Van Herck
..boards, Koen Van Assche on drums and E Vermeulen on Bass.
Their best known track and still a New Wave Ever Green
up to this day is the 1981 track A.G.N.E.S. Although the band
had more successes like the 1985 charting hit “The Claim”
it’s A.G.N.E.S. the band is mostly being remembered for.
In 1987 Frank decided to pull the plug to concentrate on
what was to become a very succesful career as producer
sound engineer, later followed by a succesful career in the
Electronic music scene. He is now even being considered
as one of the main players in the traditional electronic
and ambient music scene.

This is a real bomb..A gem lost somewhere between earth and space.The riff is sooooo good,then the vocals kick in and you think what the heck ,then the moog starts wailing and makes things more interesting and then the drum solo leaves nothing standing on it's way.The leather vest the bass player is wearing is gonna be a hit this summer..Or maybe not..

I can't get enough of this song.It gives me shivers listening to the chorus climax.I first came across this song on a mix by Prins Thomas and i can't seem to get it out of my head since.Abba's Agnetha Faltskog is giving a heartbreaking performance that defines the very essence of the perfect pop love song.If you are looking for a song to end your parties in style,well this is the one.
