Do you hear that sound? That scratching sound?
Oops, think i've heard this before... but watch this guys & gals:
I might be lazy these days but since i got this pretty rare single Ep graciously sent to me by this cool dude en Amsterdam-named Evert (evil-ish!) and love it, i think it's about time to share it with the whole starving world... so here you go!
Extracted from vinyl to wav with dbAudioInput through Pioneer PL-200 turntable and SA-508 amplifier. Wavs processed with EAC, tracks encoded to 224~320kbps VBR Mp3 with dbMusicConverter. Pure killer-sound and scans made with love too, what did you expect?! My pleasure.
This while waiting Dog to send that "moodswing" album of theirs back on earth so we at last can feel the grace in its entirety. Da full blessing, meh.
About the cover: The woman on the frontcover is Everts mama, aptly called Bep! Evert is the kid with the swan. The beach is at Le Havre France in 1968 or there about (check the Citroën).
(extract from full bio in "Gems" album post):
Guitarist Paul van Dijl and singer/bassplayer Evert Molewijk played together in a jazzcorepunk band called Pubic Hairdo (who didn’t release any material although some of the Pubicsongs, or parts of them, were used on songs of the ‘Gems’-c.d.).
After the break-up they teamed up with Bernt Nellen, a very talented jazz drummer from Germany, to form a band called combining the first letters of their names, BEP.
Within weeks of BEP’s existence (1992) they were asked to tour with the Rhythm Pigs.
They had to release some material too so they rushreleased a single containing 3 songs: 'Definite Devon', 'Irreversible' and Bernt’s 'Bronstige Bossanova' (the first 2 songs were rerecorded for ‘Gems’ and the 3rd is an instrumental that sounds a lot like a Victims Family rip-off).
The single was recorded on 8-track in a rented rehearsalspace and produced by Tijs Keverkamp.
It was released on GAP-recordings, a sublabel to Konkurrel. The actual B-side ‘Irreversible’ was played quite a few times on Dutch radio, VPRO mainly.
After they toured with The Rhythm Pigs, visiting Germany, Poland, Spain and Belgium, they were asked by Konkurrel to record a full length album which turned out to be ‘Gems’.
[...] In this first period they were heavily influenced by Nomeansno, Victims Family and the likes but Paul was also into much slower stuff like Obsessed or metal like Prong which comes out in songs like ‘Lovechild’ and the very slow ‘Trapped’. They sure liked the difficult stuff but always tried to let the song be more important.[...]
Okay people, forget about those nasty black eyed peas and get the real smokey shit for once, straight from Amsterdam, Holland... with love!
Take a deep breath, enjoy the hits full speed ahead at high volume!
