Jay van Feggelen to perform live Bodine songs!

For those of you paying attention to the Baroeg Programme AND following the news on Facebook, this is already old news: Jay van Feggelen is going to perform some Bodine songe LIVE on stage! The gig date is here! Jay is going to perform a few songs with Rebel Star. The rest of the festival bill is worth the stay too: Tokyo Blade, Tygers of Pan Tang are guaranteed to make a great evening. Order your tickets fast, since the festival's previous edition (2015) was sold out!


1984-03-30 Krogt-sclick to enlarge18-12-2015: Since everything over a handful is wasted, Regular rocker kept a mysterious afterburner of Marcel Ebbelaar's Autograph Card posted a few months ago. Apart from a shoe print, it reads that the venue 't Krogt had been burglared prior to the concert. The damage added up to 3,000.- guilders in missing appliances and 1,000.- in necessary repairs. As a gesture of charity, the bands listed for that day agreed to play for free, so that all the ticket revenues could be used as a down payment on new gear. Ain't that sympathetic?

Moreover, it turns out that it was a festival with 6 bands and Bodine was listed as (this is where the mystery starts) Axel Langemeyer, Jeronimo and Arjen Lucassen--supported by "Fast Bas" on the drums.

Fast WHO?

Fast Bas.




1984-01-28 New York festival bill19-12-2015: The end of the year is near, so we're safe to say that the biggest sensation for true Bodinists must be the discovery of this festival bill on eBay. This one was discovered by Shockpower. It cost a few bucks, but it is worth it. This bill is the epitome of Bodine's career, in my view. It reflects the perspectives and the failures of the band in one single image. It shows the band's potential, their expectations... and the disppointment in one striking view. One can only wonder what might have happened if the gig had actually taken place. It never did.



1984-05-27 Bodine Amicitia-s1984-05-27 Scarborough Fair festival poster

18-12-2015: Rien van Nieuwenhuizen, who ranks as one of the earliest discoverers of Bodine, hinted Regular Rocker to a festival poster circulating on Facebook. The poster can be traced back to 1984 and is unique for the fact that it announced one of the concerts agfter Arjen Lucassen's departure. Probably, they played as a four-man band, with Rheno filling in all the guitar parts (if this wasn't the gig that Henry van Maanen played). After this date, Bodine Mk-IV(a) would onbly perform four more times.

The festival venue was Amicitia in The Hague, and for some peculiar reason it was called the Scarborough Fair festival. Is there anyone out there who has more details on this concert? Who played in Bodine that day? What was it like? Share your memories here in the comments section!
