NEW FAVOURITE BAND.

Just before you say anything, they had songs other than "Venus", OK? Check out their album Scorpio's Dance. It's got a great jangly garage-rock vibe that I think a lot of you would totally dig.

I'm going to check them out tonight Mairi. I'm always looking for something new. Love 'Venus' but never checked any of their other stuff out. Cool recommendation.

Singer Mariska Veres died a couple of years ago. She was still touring with the band, that is: she was the only original remaining member if I'm correct.
Guitarist Robbie van Leeuwen was on Dutch TV some months ago, talking about the recording of Venus and the rest of the album. He's a pretty shy and non-talkative guy nowadays, so it was a pleasant surprise to see him on.

I'm digging it. Will order 'At Home' first though.
