Yet another great band from the Netherlands (Amsterdam) that was directly influenced by Victims Family (like Jam Jar or BEP) and that released this one and only album, a jewel in Jazzcore to make it simple.
They played around Europe in the 1993-96 years, even had tour dates in France with Victims Family and one can feel other slight touches in the likes of NoMeansNo or Rhythm Pigs and more when listening to their wicked tunes.
We're talking Hit-Tunes here, of course.
Line-up: Vocals: Hank. Bass-vocals: Dick. Guitar: Joeri. Drums: Marcel (aka Marzel ex-BGK, Nitwitz and now playing in Norton)
Extract from an interview of Larry Boothroyd (VF's bass genius) by Fish:
..." We’re just part of a long line of bands and composers experimenting with genre-bending, and messing around with time signatures and stuff.
I guess not many were doing it at punk shows, but of course there was The Minutemen way before us.
Nobody ever refers to The Minutemen as Jazzcore, but all the elements were there. We didn’t sound like them, nor did the bands that we inspired sound like us.
None of the bands that were considered Jazzcore really sounded alike. It was more of a philosophical connection amongst the bands, and we didn’t even necessarily share a philosophy!
So it’s difficult to attribute a line of influence when it’s not so much a sound, but an approach. Sometimes people will tell us that we heavily influenced them, and the music that they make is so complicated and cold and precise that it hurts to listen to, and that wasn’t what we were about at all, although I can see how it might be interpreted that way. There were a number of bands in The Netherlands directly inspired by us, like Jam Jar, BEP and Mauser FK, and I’d like to think that we inspirational to the likes of Schlong, Plaid Retina and My Name, but they were equally inspiring to us."
I guess you'll check VF's myspace page if not already, anyway enjoy this fabulous piece of noise, hard to find (man i think i ordered the last one they had for 7,50€ at PANX distro (Toulouse, FR), it's sold-out now!) masterpiece...
