I got an email the other day from Niels. Niels who? Niels from Gepopel of course. He spoke about the problems about fitting in: “our big problem seems to be we don’t fit in anywhere… The garage scene (which we feel the closest to) think we’re too HC, the HC scene think we’re too garage, the Ramonesy/pop/punk-scene we don’t fit in, etc. It’s a drag as me and our bass player Joost both started out in the early 80’s, when you had a load of totally different sounding bands working together (the Ex/ Nitwitz/ Trockener Kecks, etc. etc.),”.
I recognise that too well. It dosen’t fit into the KBD time table. But many bands here don’t. But in 20 years the new bands on here will sure be the victims of collectors greedy hands. Pick up this before you regret it cause it’s fantastic!!
Last track is a cover of a De Straks song from 1980. 500 copies and a super nice packaging. Check out Niels punk rock blog Eet U Smakelijk. Excellent writing and great posts! Favourite track: Doin’ Time. I want more Niels!
