7-inch series, part 666 – Spinvis/LPG

666! That’s a party, right? Right?
Oh, okay.

Spinvis/LPG – Goochelaars & Geesten/Sparrow
label: Excelsior
year: 2004
side a: Spinvis – Goochelaars & Geesten
side b: LPG – Sparrow | |

Part of the Dutch blogosphere went crazy when Spinvis started surfacing. The songs from his fantastic first album were all over the place and rightly so. It didn’t take long for the the 42 year old mailman to break through to a larger audience and become the ultra modest star that he is now. Or is he, still? I don’t really know because I’m a bit out of touch with the Dutch music scene. He came to the club I was working at in Antwerp a couple of years ago to perform with Dutch writer Simon Vinkenoog, who passed away half a year ago and it was awesome. Still, I have never witnessed a proper Spinvis concert.

This single was a special split single with another Dutch band LPG, with beautiful artwork by design studio DEBOKOFHETLOKET, released in limited edition of 500 copies (which in the record bizz these days is not so very limited, sadly) on the fabulous Excelsior label.

Video for LPG’s “Sparrow”. It’s about two bears, oddly enough.

feesten met spinvis? ik kan me veel feestmuziek indenken maar spinvis is dan toch niet mijn eerste keuze 🙂
volgens mij is het wel je bent of vóór spinvis of gigantisch tegen (ik ben van de voor variant), er is geen middenweg.
oh ook nog van het happy happy riedeltje natuurlijk voor dit jaar!

Mmjah misschien is feesten met Spinvis inderdaad niet echt evident, zoals men bezuiden de landsgrens zegt. Het ware fantastisch geweest als aflevering 666 een single was geweest van Deicide of iets dergelijks, maar goed.
