Parade Ground are a belgian band created by two brothers , Jean-Marc and Pierre Pauly in 1981.
They were pionneers of cold wave and electronic body music.
Their first single 'Moan on the sly' was released in 1983 and they remained active till today, although, for various reasons, they decided not to release anything between 1988 and 2007, being implied in several other artistic projects such as novel and poetry writing and plastic art.
Their style has evolved during the 80ies, passing from an icy and radical cold wave to a more danceable sound with stressed rythms and exclusively synthetic melodies, sustained by an onirical dadaïst visual.
They have regularly collaborated with members of belgian band Front 242 and worked with english producer Colin Newman of Wire . They also wrote and composed on two Front 242 albums in 1994.
They often toured in different countries of Europe and have been an inspiration to numerous bands.
Their second album 'Rosary' was released in 2007 , produced by Patrick Codenys (Front 242).
The band have acquired a solid live reputation : 'the choreography of chaos' and are currently preparing a third album.
The future is now.
