The Grapefruit Zoo at the Dolhuis!!!

This sunday afternoon finally there´s an opportunity for witnessing the beer drinking freakbeaters the Grapefruit Zoo. The happening is in honour of the new CD of the Heatwave out on Grey Past Records (for details on this great CD see below) with special guest Willem de Ridder, the essential Dee-Jees and our beloved group out of Drenthe. Their sole release is a great 7" with the crude little stomper called "Said before it couldn´t happen to me" which originally of course is from the Heatwave and was on Grey Past as well. It comes in a fantastic sleeve and was one of the finest 45s of last year. No doubt they´ll perform this killer and for this occasion include in their setlist, which by now should be filled with songs of their own, some other fine Heatwave songs. It starts early, at about 4pm, so we´re talking about an all day and allnighter, and surely our boys, Ruubm, Vinner and Peter, are going to prove the saying "Hoe dichter bij Dordt, hoe rotter het wordt" wrong.

Brandnew Grey Past records CD release of unreleased tracks by Dutch 67/ 68 Freakbeat band the Heatwave. 10 Amazing extra tracks and serious enhanced soundquality making this a true document of that period in popmusic everything seemed possible and most of the runners-up never released a piece of vinyl. The Heatwave were outstanding musicians and even better they were adventurous and fantastic songwriters. They just had bad luck. Read the fantastic liners!!! 23 Songs here on this CD and none is bad or even average. Also included their sole unreleased 45 and the instrumental track to the B-side with a long acidguitar solo ending. Bandmembers later joined the Zipps. Only 500 copies were made so act fast. Postage around the world is 3$. For registered postage Europeans must add 5$, overseas 8$. This CD took more than a year to make just to get it as good as possible. The fullcolour booklet contains 36 pages with also as an extra special words by Dutch 60s guru Willem de Ridder!
