Archive #16 De Fuckups – Oomph

PLATEX 6003 -2006
Who would have thought that those pimply punks that populated places like Simplon and the squats round town in the early eighties would still be alive in 2006 and would still be playing punk-rock. Well some of them are. In fact they play better than ever! Fuckups singer Menno was probably still in kindergarten round that time and sounds like the bastard son of Bon Scott or Peter Bootsman. The combination of old farts and young upstarts produces real kick-ass rock ‘ n roll. We could have picked any of their songs but choose ‘ Oomph‘ for a cybersinglerelease.

Archive #15 Krause – I lost my tampon

PLATEX 6002  – 2006

Krause knows how to get the attention; with pumping beats, dirty sounds, a tiny black dress and an absurd performance. Her songs and lyrics vary from serious and dark to light hearted and banal. This ‘onegirlformation’ is a newcomer on the elektro-territory, and she’s determined to put her teeth in it and never let go! ‘I lost my tampon’ is the intriguing title of her first cybersingle.

Archive #13 Mullhouse – Steppin’ stone

PLATEX 5009 – 2005

This tale about a wicked little boy starts out as a ‘normal’ pop song but ends in an aural asylum. Mullhouse is one of those Frisian bands that came to Groningen.
(like Planet Orange, Cochon Bleu and Weekend at Waikiki before them) Groningen is the next big city and has always been a good place to further develop your music.(and your drinking habits) Listening to Mullhouse we hear different influences but there is definitely a unique sound.

Archive #12 Cyrk – Momma you almost crashed us

Platex 5007 – 2005
This beautiful piece of POP NOIR was made by mysterious duo Pocon Attis and Lugtmeyer. We were immediately impressed by the dark sounds of ‘Momma you almost crashed us’. Pocon Attis is a great singer, the music is addictive and we’re pretty sure you never heard anything like CYRK before.

Executors:
Lugtmeyer – instruments
Pocon Attis – vocals

Written, recorded and produced by Lugtmeyer & Pocon Attis.

PLATEX 5006 – 2005

Sad and Blue? You won’t be after you’ve heard
the Monroes!
The hottest band from Holland since Shocking Blue according to Evert ‘Grunnen Rocks‘ Nijkamp. And he should know. The Monroes know how to rock and how to write a song. Dirty? Yes! Garage? For sure! But always with a lot of SOUL!

Don’t fall in love with the singer. You’ll be the last in a long, long line.

The Monroes are:

Josje Kobes – vocals, guitar
Harry Kingma – double bass, bass guitar
Arnold Nieborg – guitar
Peter Blokzijl – drums

Archive #10 John Jett and the Dingoes – Bullroarer

PLATEX 5005 – 2005

‘Bullroarer’ is the recording debut for Australian guitar player John Jett. This chunky instrumental is named after a native Aboriginal musical instrument, which carries its sound for several miles. The bullroarer is used to warn people: there’s a men-only meeting coming up, not suitable for women and children. Watch out, girls.

John Jett was already an accomplished surf guitar player when for the first time in his life he saw waves. John was born and raised in the Alice Springs area in central Australia, where the creeks are hot and rain falls once every couple of years. He learned the tricks of the trade by listening to his Uncle Swagger’s enormous collection of Californian surf trash records.

Jett travelled north to the Darwin area and played night after night with his trio Ayers Rock, often to confused audiences who expected his namesake Joan (‘Where is the chick singer?’) on stage. Like most folks from down under he saved money for years and undertook a trip to Europe. In the city of Groningen he met his girl Marieke and decided to stay on. Platex Records fell like a brick for John Jett’s growling string strumming style. ‘Bullroarer’ was recorded with local musicians Sieto Kiewiet and Dim Junius. “Good guys”, John says, “if I strike it big I will surely take ’em home to Australia to play the barns and beaches.

I reckon!

The Dingoes are:
Sieto Kiewiet – Bass
Dim Junius – Drums
