The Story So Far ..
Following up on Kae’s releases in 2020, You Are Not Alone and before that the double A singles Meat Is Murder / De Confrontatie, I met instrumentalist Jos van den Bogert during one of the band rehearsals. Our shared interests in alternative music led to the recording of a number of cover demos.
In his own words, Jos is a bit of a hermit who feels most comfortable in a studio, slowly working on something that lasts. Jos studied classical guitar at the conservatory for two years and then studied musicology. From 1993 to 2005 he played bass guitar in The Essence, a band that has played a lot abroad and occasionally in the Netherlands. One CD, Glow, was released in 1995. Around 2010, Jos was briefly in a group performing his own work, left nothing behind, as well as, for two years, songs from The Cure, but unfortunately did not get around to gigs. What he admits that it does not help when he sets the bar quite high and is not easily satisfied.
Our collaboration is bearing fruit. Friday, February 5, the double A-side single “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” which comes with “Hold On To Your Friends” both covers of the originals by The Smiths and Morrissey, will be released that can be listened to, streamed and downloaded via all of the regular platforms.
