After we returned from our notorious US-tour we started to rehearse in Noordwijkerhout, just a twenty minute drive from Amsterdam. But what a difference: a shed on the countryside – space, clouds, fields of tulips and close to the beach. We never went there of course, but you can always feel that the sea is near. And that’s comforting. So, after this 2-men-in-a-rental-stationcar-tour we decided  that we could form a real BAND, too. Why not? We decided on this:  (Bingo Trappers, Fall 2001) Marc on drums, Jan on bassguitar, Freek on turntable and guitar, Wim on guitar and what else not and me on guitar. And oh, I did some singing as well. We did a couple of shows with this line-up and recorded the song Intended Youth for the Morc/Luveable Nurse splitsingle with Mongrell, Wio and Pernath. Fond memories, love you guys. Here’s another song we recorded there. We are made of this. [ti_audio media=”51″]

15 years of bingo trapping

That’s about it. A kind of wedding-anniversary, well, lood om oud ijzer, to say it in proper Dutch (something like ‘lead around old iron’). I was on a very special school, and when I graduated they told me: you used to be a golden knight! That was very nice. Then they said: but it started to rain and  in the end, you turned out to be an iron knight, still a very good brand.  Happy me.   So here I am. But hey, we’ve been recording and playing our stuff for 15 years now! Children were born, storms were raging and heatwaves hit us, but I guess we were quite persistant in a way. Surviving our wars. And still fighting. Yo. Let’s take the lead.

We decided  to join the celebration with a  re-release of ‘More Soul’, our very first cassette-release on the famous Shrimper-label from Upland, Ca. It’s a special CDR with some outtakes that appeared on ancient comp-cassette releases…
