Punkfossiel tot leven gewekt?
Het heeft even geduurd, maar de speurtocht van de band BEP naar Pete
Passion, die in de jaren 70 en begin jaren 80 internationaal actief was in
vermaarde punkbands als Panic en (de vroege) Tröckener Kecks heeft tot
resultaat geleid. De man bleek als gepensioneerde een teruggetrokken bestaan
te leiden in een bovenwoning op de Wallen in Amsterdam.
Of hij ervoor voelde als gastvoorman bij BEP op te treden op koningsdag? Na
een keer oefenen was het ijs gebroken. Als de voortekenen niet bedriegen lijkt
het een memorabele comeback te worden. Om 13.00 uur in Checkpoint Charlie
(Nassaukade 48) in de Nederlandse hoofdstad!

Bep is proud to be part of the Punk’s Not Deaf double album. Initiator Maarten Luyendijk, from the infamous Sound Gardencafé in Amsterdam, goofed around on facebook with the idea of bringing old punks back to live. 36 punkbands from the Netherlands and elsewhere recorded one song at the Buntstudio in Utrecht. It’s already called the first Facebookrecord. The releaseparty was on februari 24th and BEP is among the few bands that had been chosen to play on the day. http://www.paradiso.nl/web/Agenda-Item/Punks-Not-Deaf.htm
