Who would say that Clouseau, the group that participated in Eurovision in 1991 would be one of the most important in Belgium today? The band started with 5 member but now at that moment Koen and Kris do it with their two.The group name Clouseau is derived from the movie personage Jacques "Inspector" Clouseau. It was the nickname of band member Bob Savenberg, as it often imitated the typical accent.)
But their success is prior to Eurovision. The true 'Clouseaumania' started on May 14, 1989, when the band suddenly stood for hundreds of screaming girls. In the beginning of the 'mania', fainted girls were often taken away from the stage. The band then asked organizers to build the front stage so that the Red Cross could do it's job. In 1990, 97 fans had to be taken away by the emergency services.
30 years after, they celebrate their birthday. And they do it with the edition of a disc that has been cast in the number 1 of the list of sales of Belgium.
Especially for a limited edition 4CD + DVD set, Koen and Kris have their own favorites compiled on the additional CD (including demos and live versions). Lastly, this limited edition box also contains footage (such as never before published) about the best of 30 years Clouseau.
Among all his successes is of course their Eurovision song. GEEF HET OP peaked 10 in Belgium and 11 in the Netherlands despite their 16th place in Eurovision.
