Belgian avant-garde artist and blues legend Jos Steen passed away earlier this month.

Jos was inspired by the early Mississippi Delta Blues artists, and the timbre of his vocals placed him very close to Don Van Vliet.
If my memory serves me right, he once had a band called The China Pig Blues Band, and he recorded a session with Steven De Bruyn and Jimmy Carl Black for the belgian Cucamonga radio show.

The below fragments show one of the rare performances of Jos Steen. The first snippet has Jos playing the vacuum cleaner, the second one features Jos on the guitar.
