15Y

This year Enfant Terrible is running for 15 years… it is not that I want to put too much emphasis on this… the current state of things is what counts… but I have seen so many labels come and go these last 15 years… and I have been in contact with so many people… and only a few of those are still here… for various reasons… and it does not make a difference  to me if I speak to these people every day, once a week or once a year… next to the records I realised with all the different musicians and all the memories of concerts, parties and meetings… in the end those few people still here are for a very big part what counts… I am quiet sure you know who you are…

And… after 15 years ET is still based on the same idealistic principles as when I started and as I have given shape to it in the manifest and activities… so expect only one thing… that I will take this furthur…

Attic 61 – one more time

The night at Attic 61 last September was great and I have made posts about it already… but now the aftermovie is ready (see below)… it brings back the good energy of the night… and for those not there… now you can get idea of what you missed out on…

Hex

From 2003 to 2008 I was involved with a parties series called Hex. These parties started after I had quite my involvement with the Gruis parties in Utrecht. The Hex nights found a home at OCCII in Amsterdam and had a focus in all things new wave and post-punk… from batcave to NDW to minimal electronics and often also beyond…

Many bands had their (Dutch) live debut there… or otherwise did a rare live show: Agent Side Grinder, Frustration, Schwefelgelb, Sixteens, Black Ice, Wermut, Echo West, Solitude FX, Hval Mus, It&My Computer, Cheveu, SaraLunden, Vanishing, Swann Danger, and so on…

Hex was quite legendary these days… people from Belgium, Germany and France came over just for the nights…  and still nowadays I sometimes come across people who still remember these parties…

Recently some footage popped up on Youtube so I ripped it for my private archive… but I also put it online on my Youtube channel and posted it below… just for old times sake and for melancholy moments when it seems that all good things lie in the past…
