Illustration for a review of Harry Mulisch' posthumously published book De ontdekking van Moskou (The discovery of Moscow), dealing with a writer hiding in a ruin writing about a writer who writes about a writer - ad infinitum.
Arrived on my doorstep the same day - Oeverloos - a newspaper in comic form about the North of Amsterdam, where I spend all of my childhood so I could make this comic as an expert.
In two days my new book The Assault (De aanslag) wil be printed. Color corrections and print preparation proved to be a pretty big job for all it's 170 pages so now I'm in bed with a flu. I have to thank Geurt Naber, who does this production for Oog & Blik/De Bezige Bij, for all his efford and enthusiasm!
Another track I found while cleaning up storage. I made this in I think 1999. The track is called Repulsion because the main guitar riff is from the Chico Hamilton soundtrack of Roman Polanski's movie. I think I lifted the guitar and vibe solo's from a library record by Hans Posegga called Music for effect. I also hear some Bollywood percussion breaks but can't remember from which records. The horns come from a Hungarian record by the group Bergendy.
Digging through old harddiscs, I found tracks I made at the beginning of the millenium. At that time I was an aspiring DJ, together with my friend Edo Bouman of Vintage Voudou and like so many we caught the exotica bug. I remember working in a videostore in the evening, rummaging for records and drawing comics during the day and edit music at night in a program called Acid. This track is the mellowest and is like a sweet layered (space) cake.
