Johnny The Selfkicker
Thursday, 17 September 2009
Last week I bought this book from 1966:
It was compiled and edited by Simon Vinkenoog and contains 356 pages with stories and pictures of Het Magies Sentrum, I had never seen or heard of this book, but it is great stuff. The idea to make CD (+book) with a soundtrack to this place (Amsterdam) and time (mid-sixties) has moved a bit to the background of my mind, but it is not forgotten.
Here is a story by Johnny van Doorn aka Johnny The Selfkicker about a rather weird adventure he had with Robert Jasper Grootveld:
I remember that long time ago I saw a record by Johnny the Selfkicker in a record shop. It was way beyond my budget, but I wish I had bought it anyway, because I never saw the record again. If anybody happens to have a recording, please let me know.
Here is Johnny is his later years:
