Au Plan K, Brussels 1979-2009


New York had CBGB, Paris had Les Bains Douches, Amsterdam had the Paradiso, Manchester had its Haçienda… From 1979 to 1986 the Belgian capitol Brussels had Plan K, a wondrous “counter-cultural centre” housed in a former sugar refinery. The list of headline attractions at Plan K reads like a who’s who of post-punk. Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire, William S. Burroughs, The Human League, Orange Juice, Josef K, Scritti Politti, James White, Tuxedomoon, Front 242, Bauhaus, The Slits and many more. Most of these legendary performances were documented by noted new wave photographer Philippe Carly.
