Vpro Piknik (1970/71, Hippie music) 
Friday, September 29, 2006, 09:04 PM - Music, - NL, - UK, - US, English
Today no electronic record.

I stumbled upon a self made double cd with music from the dutch television programs called Piknik (1970) and Campus (1971).
It was broadcasted live by the alternative television organization VPRO. Two bands played live every episode.

After 25 years the VPRO broadcasted some audio recordings again, there are no video recordings left. What I post are these audio recordings.

Hoe kazig kun je gaan?
Het hoesje kon wel ontworpen zijn door Jaap van der Zwan.



Gekregen van die fijne vrienden van mij.
Voor de liefhebber.

Van achter de kast: Paul Tornado - Van Agt Casanova (1977, NL, Punk/New wave) 
Tuesday, September 19, 2006, 07:49 PM - Music, - NL, Nederlands
Kennen we hem nog, die vreselijke van Agt?
Was voor mij reden om te roepen dat ik ging emigreren. Nooit gedaan natuurlijk.
Dit plaatje was wel aardig, refereerde aan de maatregel om in sexbioscopen maximaal 49 bezoekers toe te laten. Was een goed idee, zo zijn de Peepshows ontstaan.



De b-kant (Ik wil jou zijn, mijn idool) vond ik beter, er liepen toen nogal wat Sid Vicious klonen rond.
Dit is de heruitgebrachte single uit 1981, de b-kant wordt wat vroeger afgebroken.

Dit is al de derde nederlandse band die ik post die blijkbaar niet voorkomt in het bestand van het Nationaal Pop Instituut. De andere twee waren Pat Cool en Instant Composer's Pool. Mensen, ga jullie werk doen!

From behind the cabinet: Instant Composers Pool (1972, NL, Weird) 
Sunday, September 17, 2006, 06:13 PM - Music, - NL, English
When rearranging my living room, I discovered some hidden records.
Most of them are odd, I will publish them the next days.

Starting with this 5" flexi of the Instant Composers Pool, a dutch improvisation band. Most of its members are now in the Willem Breuker Collectief.
This record was distributed for free at high schools as promotion for the CJP (Cultural Youth Passport).



A combination of psych, weird, blues and free jazz.
I think it's very rare.
On the other side was a song of Solution, another fine dutch band, taken from their lp Divergence, still available on cd in the shop.

Pat Cool - Day Break (1973, NL, Canterbury) 
Saturday, September 16, 2006, 04:42 PM - Music, - NL, English
Band from the south of the Netherlands (Limburg, Tegelen).
Typical dutch early 70's sound: jazzy, mainly instrumental with lots of Hammond organ and some flute.
Sounds a bit like Solution, Supersister and Focus (without guitar).
Gé Titulaer sings horrible english, even I can hear that.
But the instrumental parts dominate and they are very good.
By the way, Gé is the father of the Dutch Idols winner 2004 Boris Titulaer.



Gé Titulaer: Keyboards, flutes, vocals
Huub Timmermans: Keyboards
Tom van der Schoot: Bass
Peter Tiggelers: Drums

Side 1:
1 When somedays [8:50]
2 What are you about [4:35]
3 For all who really had to cry [9:40]

Side 2:
1 Day break [4:40]
2 I wish [7:55]
3 There has been a change in me [8:45]

(there are three scratches on 'I wish', sorry for that)

Extra:
The sun king found his kingdom here [4:20] (not my rip, found it somewhere on the web)
