The first concert after summer was the 18th of september at the Koffie 5 Euro in Rotterdam. Played on the same bill as Le Seule Element from France. Here’s the Facebook event page. The first time we’ve played in our hometown in a few years. It was very nice. Here are some foto’s of the event. And here’s Part 1 of a video of the show shot by Rolf Versteegh:
And here’s Part 2:

Here’s some video footage of our Amsterdam show from last april. Interesting stuff, a completely instrumental piece of music with a raw and edgy sound and nice dynamics. Special thanks to Alicia for filming.
The 24th of april we’ve played a show at the Dokhouse Gallery in Amsterdam. See the Facebook event page. The Amsterdam project SteQ with Peter Quistgard on electronics and Stephen Doyle on drums will be the joining us. They will perform their own set. http://thelock.bandcamp.com. Modern Art from Ids Dijkstra in the Galerie and vegetarian foods in the restaurant. Concert starts at 21:00. Come along to have a long lasting Psychedelic experience. DJ Miss Whips will be playing 50ties and 60ties Rock and Roll from 23.00. The entrance is free.
Just finished a new Vibes Videoclip “Psylomatic Bikeride”. Very trippy, weird stuff. Momo did the Video editing and Day-T the audioworks. Have a Ride!!!!
Sadly we’ve postponed our small London tour to a later date. Originally we’d go for a 3 concert tour to london in the first week of may. Although we had two concerts booked, at the rhythmfactory in Whitechapel and the Dublin Castle in Camden, the thirth one at the Lewisham Arthouse didn’t work out because we couldn’t find a suitable date in their agenda. We’ll have another go later this year.

Would like to draw the attention to the people of Ardour for their fantastic work in creating a free (pay what you can) professional audiosoftware studio. An inspiration to us all.

The 9th of may we’ve played a show at Loophole Berlin as part of a 7 concert Germany tour. It was great fun. A lovely and sympathetic concert place with nice and frendly people.

We’ve finished the new recording fase in the studio last july 2013 for another new release at the end of this year or maybe the beginning of next year. It’s gonna be a combination of recordings we’ve just made and the audio footidge of a recording stage in France last april with our mobil recording device. Hopefully it’s gonna be the realisation of a longtime dream we have, creating a fullscale instrumental piece of work. Mixing will probably start in march 2014. We’ll keep you informed.
