An Introduction To Dutch New Wave Volume 18

Just before rounding up October I present you the 18th installment of this series. To be honest I never thought I would come this far. But somehow new groups and artists come overhead each time I scum my resources on the internet. Also a visit of a second hand vynil store in The Hague last week provided me with some nice contributions and new additions in my ever growing music collection.

In the eigthies the VPRO had a program on the Sunday called Spleen, which run for a couple of years. This program turned out to be a hugh inspiration source over the past months, and through this program I discovered f.e. Raoul Röring, which is presented on this volume. Also the Diggin' Demos YouTube page profided some nice contributions again.
