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, new work will be released that can be listened to, streamed and downloaded via all of the regular platforms.

Departed Greatness Of A Christmas Tree


November 13, 2020




Een radiomaker bereidt te vinden zijn nek uit te steken voor het draaien van alternatieve real-life muziek in zijn radioprogramma en die daarbij zelf de confrontatie niet schuwt, is in Nederland muziekland bijna niet voor te stellen. Daarom dank ik Kees Visser,  muziekliefhebber pur sang, icoon in nationaal radioland, uit de grond van mijn hart voor het draaien van mijn single De Confrontatie vanavond, de Nederlandse bewerking van Meat Is Murder van The Smiths uit 1985. Het is een meer dan eervol gebaar, omdat hij als eerste en enige radiomaker op dit moment met muziek een weg baant in de frontlinie tegen alle soorten dierenleed, wereldwijd.


Ik dank hierbij ook zijn trouwe luisteraars, die dit mede mogelijk hebben gemaakt!


“Dierenwelzijn is niet vertegenwoordigd in Nederlandse liedjes. “Meat Is Murder” is de song die in (inter)nationaal radioland niet gedraaid wordt en ik begrijp niet waarom dat zo is. Het is een gemiste kans, want dit lijflied kan helpen te leiden tot het sluiten van alle slachthuizen.”


Moge dit de kentering zijn!


Vanavond, 20.00, WOS RADIO “STAGE”





It is hard to imagine, in this Dutch music scene, a radio producer who does not shy away from confrontation and who is willing to stick his neck out to play alternative real-life music on his show. That is why I would like to thank Kees Visser, music lover pur sang, icon in Dutch national radio, from the bottom of my heart for playing my single De Confrontatie, the Dutch adaptation of Meat Is Murder by The Smiths from 1985. It is more than an honorable gesture, because he is currently the first and only radio producer to be at the forefront of all kinds of issues of animal suffering worldwide.


I would also like to thank his loyal listeners, who have helped make this possible!

“Animal welfare is not represented in Dutch songs. “Meat Is Murder” is the song that is not played in (inter) national radio land and I don’t understand why that is. It is a missed opportunity, because this anthem can help lead to the closure of all slaughterhouses. ”


May this be the turning point!

Kae brengt A-singles “De Confrontatie” en “Meat Is Murder” uit.


Kae’s eigen versie van Meat Is Murder is getiteld “De Confrontatie” en is haar eerste uitgave in het Nederlands. De originele versie verscheen voor het eerst op het gelijknamige album in 1985, uitgegeven door Morrissey en Marr en geproduceerd door The Smiths. Haar versie van het origineel,  Meat Is Murder, wordt ook officieel uitgebracht op 9 oktober.

“Dierenwelzijn is niet vertegenwoordigd in Nederlandse liedjes. “Meat Is Murder” is de song die in (inter)nationaal radioland niet gedraaid wordt en ik begrijp niet waarom dat zo is. Het is een gemiste kans, want dit lijflied kan helpen te leiden tot het sluiten van alle slachthuizen.”



Kae releases double A-side singles “De Confrontatie” / “Meat Is Murder”


Kae’s own version of Meat Is Murder entitled “De Confrontatie” is her first release in her native Dutch. The original version first appeared on the eponymous album released by Morrissey and Marr and produced by The Smiths in 1985. Her version of the original Meat Is Murder will also be officially released on October 9th.


“Animal welfare is not represented in Dutch songs. Songs like “Meat Is Murder” are not represented in (inter)national radioland. They are not broadcasted and I don’t understand why. It is a missed opportunity because this anthem can help to close all slaughterhouses”.

New Single “You Are Not Alone” Out Now

COVER ART | You Are Not Alone | Kae

You Are Not Alone is the first new release from Kae in 10 years and the inspiration for the track was Korine’s 13 year old daughter, Caelyn. 


“Just as we went into lockdown, I asked my daughter if she would like to help making the music video to accompany the song and I couldn’t have been happier when she said yes.


Korine often courts controversy with her forthright opinions – endorsing vegetarianism and animal rights and questioning social issues in the Netherlands, such as bullying and violence among children, in this particular case, something that is very close to home.


So, after 10 years, Friday 17th July will see not only the release of Kae’s new song “You Are Not Alone” but also her debut on her new label, Phonotograph Records.
The song was written by Alex von Elzer/Korine Varekamp
and produced by Tom Pearce.

Musical life will never be the same again –
Ennio Morricone, R.I.P.
What you gave us, I have no words…..Thank You for your Music.
I was so lucky, a few years ago, to see this man perform live. He was the Mozart, the Beethoven, the Bach of our time. Who hasn’t deeply enjoyed his music?
You are the one who can say: I was there, being so priviledged to have lived in the same time as The Master Of Music did –
Master Morricone: Our deepest gratitude.

It Never Occurred To Me That You’re The Only Fun I Had Until You’re Gone…

Airbrushed On A Wall In Rotterdam. 2010. Arist Unknown. Photographer Unknown.

Hello everyone!

In order to take charge of own music and thus own life, I decided a few months ago to create a record label, Phonotograph Records. I’m more than happy that I finally took this step forward and I am very grateful for the support I had to make this come true. From now on it’s going to be really exciting…! 


Ten years ago, Kae released her debut ep “The Omen”.
The songs were recorded at studios The Box in Katwijk and mixed and produced by Tom Pearce and all tracks will be re-released, by the new label, of which a preview below!


The forthcoming reissue, the new-line up, an interview with Korine (by Stuart Douglas) the pre-release clip, new music, will be all on this page.
Hope you like it so far and if you do sharing is very much appreciated.


In these bizarre times, music is perhaps more than ever a welcome addition to (or distraction from) everyday life.
