A Split-Second

Belgian EBM/New Beat outfit A Split-Second — a member of the hugely influential Wax Trax! Records stable in the late ’80s — will make a rare live appearance in New York City this December in what’s being billed as the group’s first U.S. appearance in about a quarter-century.

The current three-piece incarnation of the band — featuring Marc Ickx, aka Marc Heyndrickx, one half of the original duo — is slated to perform Dec. 7 at Drom in New York. Tickets are now on sale.

A Split-Second originally was active from 1985 to about 1991, when original co-founder Peter Bonne left to work on another project. The group released its debut single, “Flesh,” in 1986, and signed to Wax Trax! in the U.S. in 1988. The label released a pair of albums by the duo, and singles such as “Rigor Mortis” and the Jello Biafra-guesting “Colosseum Crash.”
