fifth eurotour

After 1992, 2009, 2015 and 2017 ... my personal alltime fave band, THE GORIES, comes to Europe once again. Oh and yes I prefer to see them over any band I already saw before in the first place and in the second place over most of the bands that ever existed or still exist, and do not play any more ... you get my drift, and that EXcludes: The TALKING HEADS and a couple more, but actually not that much. I'm guessing a dozen or so.

Due to a sad miscommunication they will not play in the worlds best club VERA, but close enough ... they'll come and destroy Iduna in Drachten and some more places. See the schedule to the right. I'm hoping to go and see all Dutch shows.

sixties garage fuzz rips

Awesome gig almost 3 weeks ago (march 29) by The amazing Courettes. A Brazilian singing guitarist, Flávia C., a mighty Danish drummer Martin C. that used to be in the Columbian Neckties and a revolving bassplayer. This tours bassplayer look like he dreams of having sex with the insanely cool Emma Peel. I guess he is either German or English, but hey who knows? And who cares?

Of course I saw 'em in the worlds best club VERA, Groningen (= Grunnen Rocks City), NL, Europe. I would totally love to see 'm again while hummin' all their hits on the mighty cool american debut LP on the acclaimed English panklabel Damaged Goods. They have a shitload of vinyl already out. Be sure to check 'm out, especially if you're into anything from the 60s, Cee Bee Beaumont, fun, The Pipettes, the Wall of Sound, Thee Headcoatees or dancing.

and ... we're back!

OK this year is a rollercoaster, but musically it is a good one. I even have several candidates for "best LP of 2023", but in this first week of december it is BE YOUR OWN PET's "Mommy". After 15 years they returned and finally released a 3rd album which is as good as #1 or #2. Best songs are: "Hand Grenade", "Worship The Whip", "Goodtime".

I saw 'em in 2006 at the Dutch Lowlands Festival, but they never were in our beloved VERAclub In Grunnen Rocks City. I would totally love to see 'm finally in our club. That would be a day to remember.

OK, long time no see, but hey I am alive! To the right you see me as I was a bit troublesome and worried yesterday, at least not smiling at all;)
Still going strong, and soon I'll be back here as well. In the meantime I wish all republican 2016 voters to show that they learned something. I'd say do vote, but only if you plan to vote the orange man out, OK? My hopes aren't high, but I hope we will see a world with a Democratic president in 2021. This year this website will only be continued when Trump's presidency is discontinued. GET HIM OUT!

And for those into website-layout:
