Originally released in 1982 on the B-side of "Quand le film est triste" this remix of Lena, destinated for
the clubs, was a huge succes in Europe. Even a lot bigger than it's '82 original.

Written by Rembert De Smet, who characterizes this song by the extensive use of the guitar-synthesizer,
playing bass and rhythm on the same guitar and by his quite unique and refined way of singing.

The other part of the group was drummer Herman Celis. Between the two of them they did almost all the
instruments of a complete band. Herman left the 2 Belgen before the '85 version of Lena, to join another
Belgian New Wave group "Nacht und Nebel".

The name ("two belgians") was jokingly explained as "the only thing they had in common: Their nationality".

With his spanish oriented group 'Esta Loco', Rembert still plays his "Lena" today.
The song is still living these days and during the years it even received an Arabic and German version.

A Legendary New Wave group, with a song that stands! Lena was her name..
