I'm sorry

It was long time ago that I read my email related to this blog. I did't know that the link to the album of Rene George Schenderling was broken. I have updated it now, so you can try to download it.

Wally Tax Fundraising Memorial [2005]

Wally Tax died over 10 years ago at the age of 57. He was so poor the cost for the funeral had to be gathered through a fundraising memorial. This memorial took place on April 17th, 2005 @ Paradiso in Amsterdam.

A few years ago I got the recordings of this evening from a guy who also passed away a few years ago. Added to these recordings are some (internet)radio recordings

As far as I know these recordings are never released. I hope you will enjoy them.

The Clear - Fill it in yourself [1981]

Eerder actief als Wild Havanna waarmee in eigen beheer LP werd opgenomen in 1977, onder de naam Wild Havanna. The Clear borduurt  een beetje voort op hetzelfde muzikale stramien wat toen ook al gehandhaafd werd: een vleugje new wave, maar met onmisbare psychedelische invloeden.  In 1981 verscheen een LP waar de gebroeders Cor en Johan Smit, aangevuld met drummer Ifor Baynes op samenwerkten. Ook deze LP werd thuis opgenomen en in eigen beheer uitgebracht in een oplage van 1000 exemplaren. De plaat verscheen in een prachtige wit vinyl uitvoering.
Geduren 1983-84 werd opgetreden als the New Clear met o.a. Omar de Boer (gitaar, ex-Applejack, naar Headline), Eric Brouwer (drums, ex-Brouwsel'82 ), Jaap Scheringa ( toetsen) , Cor Smit en Rob Stevenhagen ( bas, naar Blackout).

Muzikanten die in de Clear hebben gespeeld:
Ifor Baynes ( 1981-1982, naar Bacopes)
Jack Jansen ( 1982, ex-Paintbox, naar Kaspar Inventi )
Ben Koole ( 1982, ex-Paintbox, naar kaspar Inventi)
Sydney Schonberger (1981, ex-ASHJ, naar Dynasty)
