Aktien Gesellschaft A.G. - Park Television (1993, NL, electronic/computer) 
Saturday, October 28, 2006, 06:13 PM - Music, - NL, English
The first 10 years P.A.R.K.4DTV broadcasts started with a leader made by Maarten Ploeg. It was completely made on the Amiga in Amos (with that programming language you could easily exploit all the audio and video capacities of the Amiga).
In 1993 we made a record of the tune, it was very difficult to find a company that still could make vinyl singles. Maarten used 'Aktien Gesellschaft A.G.' as alias.



Nowadays the P.A.R.K. leader tune is made by Berend Dubbe of Bauer and Persijn Broersen made the visuals.
Bauer also performs the 18th of November in the Verkadefabriek in Den Bosch with a small ensemble. Go see it if you can!

Soviet Sex - Tokyo (1981-1997, NL, electronic/punk rock) 
Friday, October 27, 2006, 07:32 PM - Music, - NL, English
There are two kinds of Soviet Sex, one with drum machine from 1981 and one with Ellen ten Damme, 1997.
In this post I included one song from a 'Vinyl flexi' (1981, electronic) and two songs from a cd single (1997, punk rock). With a voting campaign, we got that in the Tros Top 50.


Soviet Sex 1981


Soviet Sex 1997

In both versions Maarten Ploeg was the main song writer and singer of the band, his brother Rogier played guitar and Peter Klashorst bass.
Maarten was also member of PARK 4DTV and the first years it was his signature tune that was used (see tomorrows post).

Chris and Cosey - Night Shift (1982, UK, electronic) 
Thursday, October 26, 2006, 06:03 PM - Music, - UK, English
Chris and Cosey were part of Throbbing Gristle, together with Peter Christopherson and Genesis P-Orridge.
I catched a glimpse of the latter when I was performing with Raudio for le Placard in the basement of Paradiso, Amsterdam, two weeks ago; Psychic TV was playing on the main stage.

Gil Trythall - Country Moog (1970, US, electronic/country) 
Wednesday, October 25, 2006, 06:17 PM - Music, - US, English
It was Berend Dubbe of Bauer who draw my attention to Switched on Nashville.
According to him this is gabber country.
Very funny and it's amazing how Mr. Trythall could make these sounds with a Moog synthesizer.



By the way, Bauer does a concert with the Metropole Orchestra in Paradiso, Amsterdam, on the 14th of November. If you have the chance, go and see them, they are superb. From an earlier performance you can watch the video's Blissfully Up and I'm No Prototype on YouTube.

Mechanical Man (1978, US, electronic/new wave) 
Monday, October 23, 2006, 06:11 PM - Music, - US, English
Mechanical Man really is Devo.
I think these are demo sessions, maybe even a real release of Mechanical Man before they called themselves Devo.
And put on the market with a cheap sleeve that says Devo when they became well known.
A collectors item these days



1 - Mechanical Man
2 - Blockhead
3 - Blackout
4 - Auto-modown

Solution - Live in Oenkerk en Middelburg (1972, NL, Canterbury) 
Sunday, October 22, 2006, 06:09 PM - Music, - NL, English
Another self made cd with old live recordings of a dutch band.
Abroad not so well known Solution did a reunion concert this year.
They only played 1 1/2 songs of their first lp, the best one.
Here are 1 3/4 ;-) numbers of the first and two good ones of the second lp. Fever is not live, it is from the second lp and was left out on the cd re-issue.
Divergence is more well known in the version of Focus, called Tommy after the writer and sax player Tom Barlage.
Koan, though credited to Solution on their lp, is mainly The Koan of Big Jim Sullivan (alias Lord Sitar), available on his Sitar Beat cd. Pentangle also recorded it, available on the self titled cd as a bonus track.



1 Divergence [5:41]
2 Koan [9:28]
3 Trane Steps [7:59]
4 Fever [4:08]
