van Amerika



Do you ever like to invent names for a rock band that doesn't exist? And do you ever catch yourself striking dramatic poses for an "inside album cover" with your friends, as if you were this ficticious band?

OK, so perhaps I'm a bit strange... We've had some old friends from Ohio visiting Amsterdam this week. It's good to enjoy the company of good friends who understand our sense of humor, who share so many experiences with us, who don't mind being silly together.

Last Friday, we went out to dinner together, and afterwards found ourselves waiting on an empty tram. A little bit of boredom and a 10-second timer on a digital camera were all that were needed to turn the moment into rock-and-roll. The resulting photo provides that perfect inside album cover for our self-entitled debut album: van Amerika.

So when is the release party?
I bet the bald guy can really grind an axe! And the guy with the glasses probably kicks out some sweeeet accordian, huh.

Thanks for your call - timing things halfway around the world can be tricky. It was crazy to hear your voice though. Its amazing how much of the texture of people you lose over computers. : )

PS- Is it a requirement to wear black to be in this band?
