    Pleae allow me every now and then to show you some of the music i grew up with...big hits in Holland but unknown to the rest of the world..

    Now you all will know Venus by the Shocking blue i guess? Well , in Holland this band had a lot more hits, and great songs for that .
    You think the Sex pistols or ven the New york dolls did punkrock first? Mmm...not really...just listen to this...play loud!

    But of course there was more..
    back in the 1970's Jan Akkerman was voted best guitarist by the USA magazine Guitar player...and this was jan Akkermans first band . And you can hear that even in 1966 he knew how to play ...fast as lightning. Reached no 11 in the Dutch charts but nevertheless became a classic.

    And of course there is a thing as Dutch blues...well, not much of it of course .
    But Cuby and the blizzards made some nice records...



    Enjoy!

    The golden earing...everybody knows the Golden earing....Radar love indeed...a song wich would have made every English or American band proud..
    But do you actually know any other songs by the Golden Earring? Or Golden earrings as they were called before they changed singers? I fear not!
    Wich is a shame because they have made some impressive songs during their long running career...



    Or this...the boombastic just a little piece...

    Ok....Supersister....remember We got a fuzzbox and we're gonna use it? Was a nice band until a big record company took them in...ruined the whole band...shame..
    But talking about using a fuzzbox ; Supersister knew how to do it...seems like an easy going song but the sting is in the tail!

    Some more modern music then: Anouk!
    Girl singer who is enjoying rather a big career in Holland!
    We even send her to the Eurovision song contest wich normally acts as a career killer in Holland ,but not so with Anouk.
    Not an easy going lady but enough talent to let her go her way . Enjoy!

    Engrish...i know, i do it a lot...English not my native language so every now and then a little mistake may pop up...nevermind!
    But also these little mistakes happened.a few times in Dutch hitsongs....It is English, but not really..

    The shoes! There are a lot of singers who sound like anybody else..How many Eddie Vedder soundalikes have you heard in your life? Huh?
    Wel,none of this for the singer of the Shoes...a unique voice as ever there was.



    And listen to the beautifull Osaka!

    (sporting the lovely sentence ''Love her sweet behind, it's Always on my mind.'')

    Di-rect!
    Started out as a sort of a Boyband...actually played their instruments....a nice live band, but the band really improved when their lead singer started a solo career (think Limahl of kajacoogoo) and they got a new singer . Then added a keyboard player and became a really good band!







    And i also would like to add that they are rather good at covering songs;
