Sunday is the debut of my new band Soft Is at OCCII, with Rogier Smal on drums, Helena Sanders on voice & electronics, and Thale Rosien on guitar. We’re playing kind of improvised space rock, or as Helena puts it: “our drummer doesn’t like playing recognizable beats, one guitarist plays his instrument with a brillo-pad and no shoes on while drinking tea, while the other would probably be happy doing an all-pedal steel death metal set, so you see what we’re up against without even going into my questionable overuse of the Small Stone pedal on the synth”. Yeah! We’re opening for the Cosmic Dead. This will be one night to remember!
