We’ve made a little film clip with the pictures that were taken at the Dutch Time Trial Championship (August 27, 2009). At this event, we presented our song ‘There it goes (for Koos)’ to Koos Moerenhout. Check out the clip below. Pictures taken by Andre v/d Velden.
We’ve just come home after a great night with Koos Moerenhout. As you know, we recorded a song for him. Today we handed out the first copy of the single to Koos himself. He was very enthusiastic and we chatted with him, his trainer, his wife and his webmaster for some time. In the time trial he was really fast but his team mate Stef Clement beat him in the end. Still quite an amazing second place. After the podium ceremony, Koos gave the flowers to The Gasoline Brothers, thanking us for our song. Of course, we were blushing…
Dutch national radio show The Coen & Sander Show (3FM) interviewed us and we had a funny conversation, during which they received a lot of text messages from listeners that loved our track. How cool is that? Oh by the way, we got airplay on Radio 1, Radio 2 and 3FM today… Nice!
Niels Aalberts is a well-respected blogger with an opinion about nearly everything related to the music industry. Today, he published two guest items written by me (Leon). The topic: how to use Twitter for your band: Twitter as a market place, survey panel and helpdesk. Read part 1 and part 2 on his website.
Many of you sent us emails about the cover of our upcoming CD Tsk! You wanted to know why we don’t have free 3D glasses with the CD, as we chose to have a 3D front. Well, as a matter of fact: we do have them! There’s a limited edition of Tsk! available with a pair of free 3D glasses. 250 Copies are produced and if you come to our release show at Ekko, Utrecht (October 10), you’ll probably be the proud owner of a limited edition copy. Because that is the spot where it will first be available for CD buyers. Another reason to come to our release party!
It’s done. And we’re happy. The recording session for the Koos Moerenhout song last night was a complete success. We rocked it and the tape loved it. Radio 1 reporter Edwin Cornelissen (Langs de Lijn) was at the session all night long and will be editing the material Saturday morning. Then Saturday afternoon, his radio report will be broadcast on ‘Langs de Lijn’. Want to hear what the song sounds like? Be sure to listen to Radio 1 between 14.00 and 17.00 on Saturday.
Here it is! The artwork for our upcoming album entitled Tsk! Art directors Patrick Tersteeg, Alexander van der Linden and Roel Jorna did a great job. Whenever you walk into a record store after October 5, be sure to look for this cool cover. By the way, the front is in 3D. So if you have a pair of 3D glasses anywhere near you…
More free Gasoline Brothers downloads for you! We’ve been busy putting up this new blog and in the process we decided to create a new page with a lot of free downloadable stuff. Check it all out at our Free Downloads page! And there’s more good news: more mp3’s will be available soon!
This Gasoline Brothers footage was thought to be lost. But director Gerben Schmidt of Zomp TV retrieved it when he was cleaning up his video archives. We’re glad he did!
It’s a cool registration of a living room show we played January 29, 2006. Not just your ordinary living room, but the living room of Tivoli booking agent Johan Gijsen. And it was not just your ordinary living room show, for that matter. It was a fullblown rock show, with real amps and loud music. If you’re interested, there’s a nice review on 3voor12. The show itself was quite err… well… legendary if I dare say so, and this footage captures some of the magic we felt that afternoon. Enjoy!
Back in 2007, The Gasoline Brothers recorded a somewhat spooky version of Ambulance Blues by Neil Young. Download it for free, or listen to it first. Have fun!
We’ve finally met Koos Moerenhout, the cyclist who initiated The Gasoline Brothers Tour de France hype. Dutch regional broadcasters Omroep Brabant filmed us yesterday, the day we met. Have a look!
