The LP by De Comcommers is out! Andy Warhoofd & Bob Geldwolf recorded the songs in 1991, just for fun. Andy wrote all the songs, and together they played all the instruments. I got a cassette tape of these recordings long ago and tried to convince Marthy Coumans to release this on his label, Grey Past Records. That took a while, but is was worth the waiting: the sound has been seriously improved and Berend Vonk has made a beautiful sleeve for this unique labour of love.
I have no idea how to describe the music of De Comcommers. To me it sounds as a mix of Biet Het, The Four One & Only’s and some totally obscure 60’s records. Here is the title track:
