Busking Tilburg


Two more concerts last weekend and both by Kapotte Muziek. The first one, last friday, at Steim in Amsterdam was our usual set of cracks, electro-acoustic and silence. The space was quiet. I missed Noetinger/Marchetti, because I had to head back to Nijmegen, but I am told it was good. So different situation on sunday when we played for the very first time acoustic on streets of Tilburg. No electronics anywhere in sight. Before us was Vulvax who put on quite a performance, which of course the three elderly men don't do. It was short and highly flux like. Jos Smolders and me made recordings, and Jos will see if he paste them together. Our concert was part of Zxzw which was multiple day festival with loads of all sorts of alternative music. It seemed to me that The Netherlands finally have their own Sonar, and thank the lord it's not in that other city. It was crazy meeting all those people that I came across in recent years, like Dirk Serries, Sietse van Erve, Kasper van Hoek, Meeuw, The Hitmachine, Peter Zincken and bizarre enough G.X. Jupitter-Larsen, who I met too briefly after fourteen or so years. He gave me the standard Jupitter-Larsen ruler, so I am now re-measuring my house. Genesis P.Orridge walked about too, but in stead of watching Psychic TV I went to see Lewd, who played after eleven years again. Lewd is a heavy trio with my dear friend Jacques, and I must say his trio rocked. Much better than anything I heard from them on CD. Great.
