the hopes & dreams of a drunk punk (1996)

jef mercelis ended up together with dEUS in the finals of 1992's humo rock rally. It took him four more years to gather a band and record an album, which he finally did with the aid of geert van bever and rudy trouvé.
Mercelis about the cooperation: "The technician we worked with [geert van bever] has a studio in Hemiksem, nearby antwerp. He knew the guys from dEUS long before they got famous. Initially we were going to produce the album by ourselves, but then Geert suggested we'd try Rudy Trouvé for production, because he would have a clear vision on things. And so it turned out to be."
