For two years, I’ve worked on an idea, a book. When I started it was still uncertain what it would become. After a lot of hard work, it’s finally come to this point. The book is finished, launched and for sale in book and record stores. It feels great and we’ve had a wonderful launch party at EKKO last Thursday, 19th of January.

With fantastic performances by Chop Wood, Marien Dorleijn (Moss), Paulusma, Bertolf and the Scottish band Three Blind Wolves, host Norbert Pek, a speech by my publisher Tom Harmsen (L.J. Veen) and handing out the book, the night couldn’t have gone much better.

Today, I’ve launched a special book website in Dutch. You’ll find it at http://www.onderinvloed.com/boek . You’ll find a Bandcamp sountrack and playlists at Spotify and YouTube.

If you can’t read or speak Dutch, stick to the playlists and this regular Onder Invloed website, or buy the book to study Dutch. You never know, it might come in handy some day.
