Holland lotta love

Since tomorrow I'll be in Amsterdam, I'd like to write something about bands / artists from Holland.
But.. er.. I found none.
Uh, unless you want me to talk about... the Vengaboys!
No, joking: I found some (The Ex, Gone Bald, etc..), but I've honestly never heard of them.
To sum up: there is only one Dutch band I somehow like and could write about, and it's Bettie Serveert.
I happened to listen to something from their first album, "Palomine" (1992), ages ago.
Never been one of their fans, but hidden corners of my 90s heart still need things like the warm simplicity of "Tom boy" and its video.

Bettie Serveert - Tomboy (1992)


  1. i just found this dutch band called i am oak. they have a few songs on their myspace, here:
    lots of banjo and a soft americana sound. i kind of like it!

  2. they're pretty good!
    with a hint of sane and educated weirdness.
