04/01/2005 13h15 Amsterdam (the Netherlands) - Hobbemakade

While biking in the direction of the Rijksmuseum, I saw two cassettes lying in the grass, at the foot of a tree. Both apparently once were part of the same - a musician's - cassettotheque, with type-written labels. One, the cover says, is a demo tape containing tracks recorded in 1988 and 1989. The music is of the funky party sort, partly instrumental, partly with vocals. The 'liner notes' credit Mark Sigterman and Dorian with 'programming synths', Michel van Lindert and Dorian on 'bass', and Joanette on 'vocals'. The second cassette is a live recording, dated june 16th, 1989, and labeled 'TIME OUT'. It is not clear (to me) whether this is the name of the venue, or the name of the band. Among the extracts we hear a part of their rendering of Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer.
