W.A.T. live at Pandora's Music Box (1983, NL, new wave) 
Saturday, January 27, 2007, 11:27 AM - Music, - NL, English
W.A.T. (from World According To) were a Dutch trio based on sequencers, slide guitar and a thin female voice.
Ad van Meurs: guitar, voice
Ankie Keultjes: synthesizer, voice
Frank Van Nieuwenhof: bass guitar



They played on Pandora's Music Box, a new wave festival in de Doelen in Rotterdam, 2-3-4 September 1983. A lot of new wave acts played there and a lot is broadcasted on Dutch public radio
(and I taped it):
Siouxsie & Banshees, W.A.T., Durutti Column, Die Haut (& Nick Cave), Howard Devoto, S.P.K., The Box, Peter Hammill, Skeleton Crew, Jah Wobble, Spear of Destiny, Clock DVA, Armoury Show, Kowalsky, Danse Society, Fad Gadget, TC Matic.

In 1984 the festival was organized again. I don't have recordings of that edition.

Anthology of Dutch Electronic Tape Music Volume 1 (1955-1966, NL, electronic) 
Wednesday, December 27, 2006, 06:39 PM - Music, - NL, English
This double album was released by Donemus and intended (I think) to be spread amongst university libraries. Donemus doesn't publish electro acoustic music anymore, NEAR (Nederlands Elektro-Akoestisch Repertoirecentrum) took that over. But their distribution was so bad, they left that to Basta Music.
The recordings were made in several Dutch electronic studios of the Netherlands Radio Union (NRU), Delft Technical and Utrecht University, Philips and CEM Bilthoven.
Dick Raaijmakers wrote the textbook.



This lp is re-issued on cd (the recordings are grabbed from lp). It was available at Mimaroglu Music Sales but I couldn't find it on their website anymore.

UPDATE: Basta made these recordings available again on official cd re-releases in much better quality, direct from master tape: http://www.bastamusic.com/.

A Flux in 3d - Divide (NL, 1982, electronic/new wave) 
Thursday, December 21, 2006, 04:35 PM - Music, - NL, English
I think I now have found all the Vinyl flexi-disks I have. I didn't post them all, some are not really worth it. But this one is ok. The singer liked Alan Vega, I suppose. The instruments are sequencers and distorted guitar.



A Flux in 3d came from Nuenen, near Eindhoven and lived in the same house (squat?) as the members of Nasmak.



Milko Bogaard: voice, synthesizer, guitar, tapes
Ankie Keultjes: synthesizer, sequencer
Kevin Kearny: bass, synthesizer
