I think i saw the best live concert since a long long time

The Big Pink played at the Paradiso last night.The small room upstairs was filled with a lot of people from the music scene here in Amsterdam. (and some random people who were lost after their concert of Ilse de Lange haha).

It was one of the best shows since a looonngg time! I already loved their music, but i didnt know that it could be even better. It was one big wall of sound, so powerfull and beautiful and psychedelic. I would recommend everyone to go and see this band!! Wauw.

the adams family

Last night we played at MediaMatic at the opening of the Amsterdam pavilion of the Amsterdam Biennale 2009. The Amsterdam Biennale 2009 presents the underground art scene from all over the world. More than thirty international curators from the Mediamatic network provide their view of contemporary art in their city.

The Biennale is an exhibition in progress. New pavilions will be built every week. And with this weeks Amsterdam pavilion opening they needed an amsterdam based band; so we played!

The Amsterdam pavilion was designed by Aynouk Tan. She is this fashionista/it-girl from Amsterdam and designed a parfum called 'anus'. Everyone dressed up, it was one big hip happening.

The best thing was that the parfume did not really excist (it was all about the anus odeur) and the line outside was huge while there was nobody inside. it was all one big joke about the so called fashionworld here in Holland.

We did have a good time there, but the night was about halloween ofcourse. Afterwards we dressed up (in another way, although a lot of people at the fashion party were perfect for halloween. and i mean this in a good way). We went to this squattersparty. There was a huge fire in their backyard where we drank 1 euro beer.

donderdag 1 oktober 2009


Yes we are touring. We are touring in the Netherlands..and yes even tough it is a small country i never saw much of it. My parents took me on holidays to places far away. I saw a lot of the world. A lot of Asia, the USA and Europe..but i never went to Nijmegen, Deventer, Groningen, DenBosch or Maastricht.

We usually go on tour with my parents car, taking instruments, lovers and friends with us. And if i am lucky those friends got their drivers i won't have to drive all of it alone. (i'm glad we're going to paris by train next weekend).

our lovely driver hero arjan

our pirate lady elsbeth

and in the middle its our cute, skateboarding,tourguide byrthe

Sometimes we spend the night. I met so many nice people and they all were so friendly. they are letting us stay in their houses full of instruments where we drink and play till 6 in the morning and sometimes we stay in crackhouses with people who eat really healthy,really nice people with dirty beds haha. places where you brush your teeth with bionade cause the beer in limburg is quiet heavy haha

Because we have school and all we can't stay everywhere to long. But we had a really nice sunny afternoon in Maastricht.

and when we are home we can't do anything but sleep.

how come sea cows don’t go moooooooo?

We started a blog by posting one message..and then we forgot about it. Yes we are young and busy. Studying about art and live, writing music and above all perform. The time is running away. But we manage to keep writing. We wrote a really nice song. Its a story by Julien and a lovely mini keyboard solo by me. i hope we will record it soon.

I just turned 21 and still feel like i'm 18. Maybe i feel more 18 than when i actually was 18. I hope i feel like this forever, grown up, an adult, but not so much an adult that you have to take responsibility. We just do what we do, if you like it i'm glad. And if you don't, its ok.

Good things about time ticking away is that you learn who your true friends are. I'm talking about people who want to put some effort in your friendship, even its only once a year. Effort and above all respect. I have friends who don't like our music, and they tell it to me in private. Thats one of the nicest thing you can to. Respect and honesty. Altough i'm quiet happy that most people i love actually do like our music haha.

I have to go to my class again. I'm making this exhibition..
Its all nice, studying to become a curator or whatever it will be. Still i cannot wait till next year, when i've finished my studies and wont do a single thing with it (yet). Next year..when i've got time for music and music only.

So for now, this is what is left: I Wonder Why…Riming poem by Brandon Ratcliff (yes i stole it from miranda july)

I wonder why clocks go tick?
And why minutes are so quick?
What makes the hands on it move?
And why does it have a tick tock groove?
I wonder why the sea is blue?

And how come sea cows don’t go moooooooo?
The animals down there are so cool
I wish I had them in my pool.
I wonder why people cut down our pretty trees?

And why my mom makes me eat yucky peas!
You know these are really mean things to do.
I wish Scooby Doo could give me a tricky clue.
I wonder why the night sky is so bright with stars?

And do aleins really live on the planet Mars?
I want to discover this so bad it makes me want to cry!
All these things and a hole lot more make my brain say
I wonder why?
