Supporting the Nits @ Het Bolwerk, Sneek

On October the 9th, we played a support gig for legendary Dutch (‘art rock’) band The Nits at Het Bolwerk in Sneek, Holland. They were big in Holland during the second half of the 70’s and the 80’s. They’re best known for their 1987 hit In The Dutch Mountains.

It was very cool supporting them cause we are fans of them. Especially Maarten, whose piano playing is heavily influenced by the Nits’ keyboard player Robert Jan Stips. I always liked singer Henk Hofstede’s idiosyncratic lyrics and singing style.

Frieda Vuur shot some cool pics of our show and the Nits’ gig. See them at 3voor12Friesland or at my Flickr.0
