New Releases & Concerts

Right now I’m preparing to leave for tomorrow’s flight to Slovenia to play at the Shina festival with Roel. We will play our Martin Hannett thingy and add a little surprise – we hope – for the organiser, being Mat. He used to live in Venlo, just as Roel did in the same time, and he was running the excellent Limbabwe label. So you can figure out what the surprise will be.
Right after I get back – no rest for the slaves – I will be going to Duisburg on Sunday to play a small concert as part of the Brachen Siedlung – an exchange between Arnhem, Nijmegen, Essen & Duisburg. Things will start at 14:00 – my cue point. It will be short. I’ll be taking my latest purchase:
Also two new CDs have been released on Korm Plastics, Flim’s brilliant ‘Orange’ CDEP and ’25 Years Of Kapotte Muziek’, a compilation from the small festival earlier this year. Order both and get a small discount.

A Fine Day

Today the weather  is really lovely – really my kind of weather. About twenty degrees, very sunny, some clouds, hardly any wind, so I went out on my battered old bike, going outside into the woods around Nijmegen and did a long ride. A lovely ride indeed. I left the house uploading the video from yesterday and now’s it ready. So anyone who missed that can watch it now on Vimeo. Not the greatest quality, but there you go. And no there is no translation or subtitles available:

new releases soon

Today I am sending two new productions to the pressing plant. The first is a compilation CD to celebrate 25 years of Kapotte Muziek and it contains various recordings from the long weekend in february with pieces by Radboud Mens, DMDN, Asmus Tietchens, Asra, Jos Smolders, Howard Stelzer and Kapotte Muziek. The other new release is by Flim, his first release in some years and the third on Plinkity Plonk. Quite modern classical stuff there. More on these when they are out, hopefully this month
