"It takes more than consummate ability and a total understanding of your instrument to produce music like this. It takes love. Stick it in the CD player now and indulge yourself with something wonderful." — Matthew Wright, BBC Radio2
"Belgian group The Wrong Object are adept at mixing Canterbury styled prog rock with Zappa-esque jazz fusion and Frippertronics to produce a beat that has elements of the past and the future thundering through it. Stories from the Shed cleverly fuses all of these various musical elements together, expertly twisting various world music styles into the mix to produce a varied and unpredictable set of original material." —Edwin Pouncey, Jazzwise
Blending the cosmic energies of Nu-jazz with modern rock sensibilities and live eletronic devices, the music of the Wrong Object is influenced by a vast array of artists ranging from Canterbury Scene prog rock à la Soft Machine and Gong to Squarepusher, Béla Bartok, Amon Tobin, Aka Moon, Charlie Mingus and Frank Zappa. While their repertoire contains mainly original compositions, they also play a special set of Zappa covers on demand.
Since its creation in early 2002, The Wrong Object has has collaborated with guest musicians such as Ed Mann, Elton Dean, Harry Beckett, Annie Whitehead, Alex Maguire, Robin Verheyen, Steven Delannoye, Bart Maris, and many others. The Wrong Object have toured extensively in many different countries (including England, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Czekia, Slovakia, Wales, Greece, Luxembourg and even Belgium) and their live recordings have been favorably reviewed and aired by radio stations across the globe. Their side projects “Elton Dean Meets The Wrong Object” and “The Wrong Object feat. Annie Whitehead and Harry Beckett” were documented by two CD releases issued by Moonjune Records and Voiceprint. The Wrong Object's internationally-acclaimed studio album, Stories from the Shed, was released by Moonjune Records in 2008 and led to several European tours whoses repertoire was documented in Live at Zappanale (2010), which featured Stanley Jason Zappa on guest saxophone. The band are currently working on a new studio album, to be released in the Spring of 2012.
