Lemming

Saturday, 7 April 2007

There is another Dutch glamrock band from the mid seventies that should be mentioned in this Soundtrack: Lemming.
They still exist, or at least they still existed a year ago. I have no idea how they sound nowadays; the last record that I bought from Lemming is from 1981, Crazy spider. And although it is by far not the worst record in my collection (you don’t want me to elaborate on this), I love their early records too much for checking out their later records.
What I like about the early Lemming songs is the sound in combination with the horror themes. Songs like Lucifera, Father John and Queen Jacula (great title) were hits in Holland and I cannot remember any other bands that made such records. Their first LP is a real killer. There is not a weak song on the record, and they even left out their first (?) single, Evelyn. Here is Fun with me, a song inspired by another glamrock band, The Sweet.
If you happen to know if my fear, that the later Lemming CD’s will disappoint me, is incorrect, please let me know. I could sure use more of this music!
