Baby Fire is an all-female trio from Bruxeles which combines the energy of post-punk with feminine frailty. The strings are rough, the melodies catchy, the voices enthrall. Baby Fire is:

  • Dominique Van Cappellen-Waldock: guitar & vocals
  • Gabrielle Seguin: bass & backing vocals
  • Isabel Rocher: drums & backing vocals

Eve Libertine
She was one of the two female vocalists (along with Joy De Vivre) who worked with the influential British anarcho-punk band Crass. Her works with the band include the controversial single Reality Asylum, as well as performing most of the vocals on the group’s third album, Penis Envy (1981), the lyrics of which have a heavy anarcha-feminist content

The band’s debut album was released in 2011 on Cheap Satanism Records. Special guests included Eugene S. Robinson (Oxbow) and Dana Schechter (Insect Ark).

Their second album, The Red Robe, was recorded at Dial House (Essex, UK) by former Buzzcocks member Tony Barber and released on Off Records in October 2014. It featured duets with Eve Libertine and Penny Rimbaud from Crass.

Gold, the third Baby Fire album, will be released in the autumn of 2016. Hugo Race (ex-Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) will be remixing a track, which will be released separately later in the year.

Baby Fire has opened for Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Lydia Lunch, Laetitia Sheriff, Part Chimp, Neptune, etc. and played shows in the US, France, Germany, Holland and Belgium.
