A Blaze Colour was the project of Ludo Camberlin [vocals & synths] and Bam (aka Karel Saelemaekers) [synths & visuals]. The group formed in Belgium in 1981, disbanded in 1983, and had a style which was minimal, stripped-down and occasionally experimental. Their only releases were a self-released cassette in 1981, plus a 7" vinyl single and a 12" vinyl EP in 1982. The cover artwork for the cassette and 7" single were designed by Bam. All three of these releases were titled Against The Dark Trees Beyond, which was originally part of the band's name. The band name was inspired by a phrase Camberlin read in a book by the Irish-American author J P Donleavy. It was shortened to A Blaze Colour because fans were apparently having a difficult time remembering the full name A Blaze Colour Against The Dark Trees Beyond.
