Short Fiesty Garage Freak. I've been there since the CCI days of Mod right on the tail of the Mod revival scene. I moved on through a prevelent pyche/freakbeak phase and was part of original "hair bear bunch".A group of long hairs with beads and bowl cuts in the days when everyone wore suits and had french line hair cuts. I moved on to Garage Punk pretty quickly and was listening to Back from the Grave, Las Vegas Grind and Pebbles albums as soon as I could get my hands on a copy. I've sung and played drums in various bands, but mainly in The Unchayned and have just started our newest piece of reverb'd fuzz madness "The Savage Mynds" I've collected and DJ'd 45's since the mid eighties but have only been collecting seriously over the last 8 years. Before that it was tunes from other gigging bands of the time and less unusual groups from the sixties. I'm now the resident/head DJ at our monthly club The FratCave

Unfortunately not, no. I was there last year and saw the Yardbirds. Really bloody cool! The scene here in Holland just get's better and better. The Outsiders played last weekend in Amsterdam, next month there's the Zombies and the Amsterdam Soul Club is just amazing.
