I was young and wild. Drank a lot and managed to ruin my first two cars. Then I met my first Big Love. Thought I had it all. It didn't work out. I remember cruisin' the Frisian lands like a wild one. Headphones recommended. (Original songfile - 1990)
Peak position #55
Back in the nineties I met the Love of My Life - and I let her slip away. I failed as no man can fail, but it happened. Yet I live - as a shadow of the man who I once was. Don't let it happen to you. (Original songfile - the 90's, headphones please)
So I live in a dreamworld where reality says : BANG!! Who cares. Slowly evolving piece reaching its peak in me and my friends Erik and Will's frontchoir. Headphones recommended ( can you hear the sea? ). Original songfile - 1991.
Once I longed for a quiet life. Those days have long gone. Nowadays often I only long for the longing. So... Piece raw down to the bone, slight distortion on both vocals and guitars. Headphones recommended. Original songfile - 1988.

You want facts : the total amount of used heroin needles in Amsterdam has gone down from 1,000,000 ( yes, one million ) in 1991 to 184,000 in 2008. This is because new users mostly inhale the heroin. ( Headphones recommended ! Good song ! )
Slowly evolving piece. Me acting like Dylan, Young, Seeger, Guthrie and a zillion others. Specific theme ( for what it's worth ; as if you should care ) : stop polluting our oceans. Headphones recommended. Original songfile - 1990.
It is estimated that by the turn of the century in Africa there were some 120,000 childsoldiers. Currently there are some 10 - 15 wars/armed conflicts goin' on you really don't wanna be part of. Original songfile - the 90s. Headphones recommended.
( 1989! ) Taken together ( actually a few is enough ) nuclear weapons are willing and able to destroy our planet several times. They will indeed "create" A Wound Of A Depth Yet Unknown. ( Highly psychedelic and 60s alike - headphones recommended! )
Peak position #12
The older I get the less I know. The more I study the less I understand. The more I dream the more I drink. The more I drink the more I dream. !! Dangerous Life !! Not really. Original songfile 1989 - headphones recommended.
Peak in sub-genre #1
In the 60's The Stones shortly went psychedelic : She's A Rainbow was one of the "songs" on THEIR SATANIC MAJESTIES REQUEST. Here it is totally acoustic with a Chuck Berry twist - HEADPHONES recommended! ( Original file : 80's ! )
Peak in sub-genre #20
( 80's! ) Anecdote : Song ends in a huge BANG seconds after finishing - I stood in front of a bookcase which came tumbling down when accidentally I touched it after doing the lead vocals. SUPER headphones recommended!
Peak in sub-genre #15
In all my Amsterdam Years I've seen many a man ( and woman ) go down ( including almost myself ). The neonlights and behind it anything God forbade us to do simply remain irresistible. Simple song - headphones recommended. Original songfile - 1990.
Peak in sub-genre #11
All Things Must Pass, Nothing Lasts Forever, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, Beware Of Darkness, Love Hurts, When I'm Old And Wise : these could all be subtitles. Headphones recommended. Original songfile - 1988.
CLICK FULL SONG INFO FOR COMPLETE STORY! The years 1959-1961 pretty much shaped my current artistry: a 4 year old kid alone in a huge barn, the omnipotent sound of the wind, and my mother's voice in the distance. Please use headphones!
CLICK FULL SONG INFO FOR COMPLETE STORY! When I was young I used to sit a lot at the side of the road in front of our farm. For a few miles to all directions of the wind there was basically nothing - but overwhelming Silence. ( Headphones! )
