Joop Stokkermans - The Magic of the ARP-Synthesizer (1970, NL, electronic) 
Thursday, March 8, 2007, 06:29 PM - Music, - NL, English
Stokkermans is a famous composer in the Netherlands. He wrote the music for television series like Q & Q, Oebele, Tita Tovenaar, Kunt U Mij De Weg Naar Hamelen Vertellen Meneer, Barbapapa and De Berenboot. And he wrote songs for Dutch artists like Jasperina de Jong, Rob de Nijs, Paul de Leeuw, Saskia & Serge and Ronnie Tober.
All terrible in my opinion, consider yourself lucky if you don't know those names.
In 1970 he got fascinated by the wonder of the synthesizer and made an album with the ARP of Roddy de Hilster, who programmed the sounds. Bert Paige was the orchestra conductor.



I bought this lp last week from an accordion enthusiast who sold all his records.

Side one:
1 Electronic air
2 I should have known
3 Tijd...
4 Dansen met de Fransen
5 This guy's in love with you
6 Was dit 't

Side two:
1 Je t'attends
2 Blij zijn zolang het nog kan
3 Uren
4 The Swan
5 In the chapel in the moonlight
6 Jazz wals

Sammie America's Gasphetti - Too much understanding (1980, NL, art rock) 
Friday, March 2, 2007, 07:35 PM - Music, - NL, English
Sammie America's Gasphetti was the band of the Dutch artist Tom America, he later formed MAM. I found this single on the attic of a youth center and you can hear that. My noise filter did its job, but still... The b-side, Orange, is so short, they play it twice and it still does under the two minutes.

De Dommedaris - Doe Maar Dom!! (1995, NL, carnaval) 
Sunday, February 18, 2007, 06:57 PM - Music, - NL, Fun, Nederlands
Het is weer carnaval in het zuiden, ik zou het bijna vergeten. Vroeger kreeg je altijd een waarschuwing in de vorm van ranzige 'hollandse' liedjes op de radio. Die tijd is gelukkig voorbij. Tenminste dat denk ik, ik luister nooit meer naar de radio.
In 1995 probeerden beeldend kunstenaar Jurriaan van Hall en muzikant Ivo Jansen op de Haar nog een hit te scoren met Doe Maar Dom!! Helaas te laat, de tijd van carnavalskrakers was voorbij. In dit geval jammer, vooral de Ddl No-Fi mix is dolle pret. Een soort Rubberen Robbie, maar nog leuker.

W.A.T. (from World According To) were a Dutch trio based on sequencers, slide guitar and a thin female voice.

They played on Pandora's Music Box, a new wave festival in de Doelen in Rotterdam, 2-3-4 September 1983. A lot of new wave acts played there and a lot is broadcasted on Dutch public radio
(and I taped it):

In 1984 the festival was organized again. I don't have recordings of that edition.
