Wow. That's one nice list ya got there. Yes...I do believe you'll fit in nicely here.

I especially liked "Fleetwood Mac (without the girls)". lol. Made me chuckle, though I can't say I entirely disagree with you.

Good to have you on board Stijn!

Oh, and that's a great picture too. Love the beard.

thanks! In my search for a music forum I mainly landed here because of the bands you were talking about.
So I'm glad I made the right choice there!

the beard is there to hide the double chin ;D
and audiophiles, photographers and owners of old french cars usually go together with beards.

I'm sorry for the lack of capitals in this posting. Using my telephone to post this.
Good morning, by the way!

There's a lot of people still wanting them, don't worry .

I get the feeling you missed out on some words on your last sentence. What did you mean to say?

Well, day two on this forum. So far so good .
It's been nice, I'm off to bed. Almost 4 'o clock.
I'll be seeing you all tomorrow.

Hope my English doesn't cause any problems. It's not perfect and I can imagine it might cause some misunderstandings sometimes. Just in case: I mean no harm, please ask first if you think I do ;D.

Welcome to the forums, s_k. You seem a decent guy and I think Musicbanter needs more europeans in their late 20s!

Hope you stick around and if you're looking for album suggestions and the like, don't forget to check out review threads.

Still discovering new and interesting threads everyday.
I actually have a list of threads I'd like to see here.
I haven't started them yet because I'm not sure if i just overlooked them so far.
Let's see... What have I got...

Yeah, maybe a thread with concert pictures, a thread about festivals in every genre section, maybe a thread about internetradio and there's some very nice quotes from forum members coming by now and then. It might be worth while to gather them in one topic.
I haven't yet tried the search function on the ideas mentioned above.

I also would like to start a thread on dutch bands sometime soon.
There's a couple of them that are worth the listen and that aren't big enough to be known outside the Netherlands. I have tried the search function on that and it seems like you guys are missing out on some brilliant music

P.s.: I noticed this is mij 111th posting .
I'm thinking about starting a Journal...

The only dutch band I listen to with any regularity are Focus .. But they are pretty awesome! I also see they are in your list.

Focus is, indeed, very good.
I must say I prefer Brainbox to Focus. They have the same guitar player (Jan Akkerman).
Focus has brilliant ideas, but their brilliance is limited to a couple of tracks, whereas Brainbox has got a very, very brilliant album with "To you".

The most famous Rock band in The Netherlands itself must be The Golden Earring(s).
They were called the Golden Earring in their first period, the S was added later.
I don't think much of them. They have some pretty good songs though, like "Another 45 miles to go" and "All Day Watcher".

Then we have a blues band called Cuby and the Blizzards. Which is somewhere between Fleetwood Mac (without the girls) and the first two Ten Years After albums.
Lately a hardrock/funkrock band stood up by the name of DeWolff. It consists of some youngsters who turned out to be really, really good.
Another dutch band that may be interesting to you is "The Nits".
Some good songs by that band are "In the Dutch Mountains", "Nescio" and "J.O.S. Days".
Then there's a band called "Earth & Fire", of which I can only recommend their first album which has no name, but is often referred to as 'Matchbox'. Especially the song "Seasons" is quite nice. The lyrics are bull****, just a line of english words meaning nothing. But the music is good.
Last but not least, we have a pretty good (fun)punk band called "De Heideroosjes".

Eitherway, there's enough to fill a thread

I must say Belgium has better bands than we do. They have Balthazar (which is incredible), Novastar, dEUS, Admiral Freebee, Absynthe Minded, Ozark Henry...
The grass is always greener on the other side .

This sounds very interesting. Something I'd like to check out. Do they have many albums out? Any suggestions where to start?

Also, it sounds like starting a thread and/or journal on Dutch music would be a fantastic idea based on what you've posted so far.
