Okay, you might know how tough it gets when trying to get infos about independant dutch bands, and this one gets particulary difficult when all results you get for Bep are links on this Black Eyed Peas suckaz one!
So all i got(with a little help from my friend Koos) is this Bep homepage, all written in dutch of course... so if you can read it just go for --> IT! (some pics & free Mp3s avalaible there as well).
I tried some online translator and got some pretty fucked-up nonsense translation so here's the best i could figure out from it:
Located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Bep was born in the winter of 1991 and was created by Bernt, Evert and Paul, which explains the name B E P.
Bernt left the band not long after and Jérôme Geerlings (ex- Jam Jar) replaced him on drums.
Although the band played a lot with such bands as Victims Family, Human Alert, Smear, Fibre, Facehugger or Pane to promote its albums (no less than 4 Lps), it never gained much success.
(didn't get the second part AT ALL!)
(and all i understood from the last one is that) the band calls it quit in the summer of 2001 after a 10 years long career. But here's the best, today saturday november 7th:
BEP's history told by Evert himself in "Gems" album post, don't miss it!
So anyway, if you like mixed influences technical rock-jazzcore whatever, you should enjoy this 2nd release of BEP, and some more might even come sooner or later...

The Jay Roon Lovers is Evert Molewijk's (Bep's bass player/vocalist) homeproject, featuring the Victims Family (!) as his backing band, mind the class.
They played on ‘The Fightback’ in return for Evert renting out his bass amplifier for free during their "Apocalicious-tour".
The song was recorded by Daan van der Elsken and also features Robert van der Schild, the man behind the compilation, on backing vocals.
They only spent a few hours in the studio.
Larry Boothroyd (bass) and David Gleza (drums) playing together only needed two run throughs to hit the backing track!
Kemo Ball and Ralph Spight (both guitar) did their bit in the shortest of times too.
Now this is what i call a blast or i dunno shit bout nuthin'!
Thanxxx to Evert for all the infos.
