2012-01-01 Bodine promo package Bakker3 january 2012: Koen Bakker of just shared a photo of his copy of Bodine's debut album! It included a massive iron-on logo and a printed bio. Koen is one of the few proud owners of an original collector's item that is likely to have become scarce. Thanks for sharing this, Koen!

31 December 2012: With a new year starting, these are the words that Axel Langemeijer once spoke and come to Regular Rocker's mind. Wishing you all the best for 2012!!
30 years ago, Bodine were auditioning
new singers and this caused some line up changes in the band. More to follow soon!

28 November 2011: The past weekend marked the FIRST ANNIVERSARY of the Bodine tribute site! Making a website turns out to be quite a challenge. Keeping the site updated, making it interactive and improving the design turns out to be more than a handful, but giving access to the musical heritage of Bodine on the internet is a mission worth to pursue!
Without paying an extra dime, made it to the top 6 of Google search results for 'Bodine'! And this site reached the 19,000-pageview barrier--not in the least through the invaluable and spontaneous contributions from the visitors.
THANKS so much to all of you! (A HALL OF FAME is in the making!)

Eye-witness interview

1981-11 Bodine Fanmagazine 001 (EN)21 November 2011: THE FIRST ISSUE of the BODINE Fan Magazine is republished on Regularrocker! 30 Years ago, two enthusiasts edited a fan magazine for Bodine, which is now made public once again (Dutch / English). This gave rise to starting a section on the Bodine Fan Clup here on, including an interview with initiator Han Hijzelendoorn and fan mail (22 letters) from all over the world!!
This republication also marks the first anniversary of Regular Rocker online!


Alfred LagardeAlfred Lagarde © Veronica17 November 2011: After Bodine's debut album was released in February 1981, Alfred Lagarde was quick to invite the band to be guests on his radio show, VARA's Betonuur. All band members were present. It's the first time in the history of internet that the illustrous quartet can be heard speaking again! The interview is purling and spontaneous.
Rheno, when asked about his musical influences: "Jimi Hendrix? Who's that?"
Gerard, about the meaning of Bodinism: "We're all descendants of the Indian guru Swie Bodine..."
Jay, about the song writing process: "We use to rehearse our songs in a rat hole..."
Armand, about Krokus:"Blurrrgh!"
The (edited) radio broadcast is most likely dated 5 March 1981 and can be heard here!

Thanks to Han Hijzelendoorn and Paul Evers of Time is Running Productions!

New article started: a precious collection of audio files will be released here! The first two sound flashes are posted, more to follow soon! Kindly provided by Han Hijzelendoorn and edited by Time Is Running studios!

BODINE gig in De Melkweg

1979-05-27 Melkweg Bodine-tn9 November 2011: Another historic find by Martin Stassen! On 27 May 1979, Bodine performed in Melkweg, Amsterdam, together with Sustain and Uncle Rednose. The evidence is supported with an authentic poster ad, that looks more like a riddle. See if you can find Bodine on it!

MORE Sensational Finds!!

A nightly email message to Carl Nieberg almost instantly yielded two more awesome photos from the 22 June 1979 gig. Check 'em out here! It was way beyond midnight when they slipped into Regularrocker's mailbox. It was worth the wait!

Sensational Finds continued!!


22 june 1979 Bodine in POC Weesp (© Carl Nieberg)© Carl Nieberg22 june 1979 Bodine in POC Weesp (© Carl Nieberg)© Carl Nieberg7 November 2011: One thing leads to another! Earliest Bodine live photos found in a dark corner on the web! Thanx to Martin Stassen's contribution (below), regularrocker was able to make a SENSATIONAL find on the web. It turns out that the earliest known Bodine gig was actually photographed!! The source is Carl Nieberg, who made a website about the Parochieel Ontspanningscentrum Weesp. Adding one and one in a google search lead to this unique find!


Earlier earliest Bodine gig date discovered

1979-06-22 Weesp POC Bodine 7 November 2011: When it comes to tenacity in research, Martin Stassen is second to none! One again, he has raised the barrier by sypplying Regular Rocker with the earliest Bodine gig thus far: 22 June 1979! Martin usually ends his fact-filled emails with the words: "More to follw!" It is exactly these words that RegularRockers in dire anticipation of his next email!!

6 November 2011:
New addition to the Forum! Three new articles about the Rock Explosion Festival and the negative aftermath (only in Dutch, for the time being...)

Jay leaves Bodine

1981-10-29 Hitkrant Bodine article tn1981-10-29 Hitkrant (NL)29 October 2011: According to the Hitkrant that appeared 30 years ago, ruptures started to show between Jay and the rest of the band. The news flash on page 3 suggests that the management was trying to glue the fracture, but the split turned out to be inevitable. Allegedly, the rest of the band was annoyed that Jay appeared in a TV-show on his own. The audiostream of the show hosted by Robert ten Brink can be heard here and is quite amusing:

Robert ten Brink Nederland MuzieklandRobert ten BrinkThis piece of sound bite proves that the allegations about Jay appearing on his own do not make sense, since bass player Armand was present as well! Therefore, Regular Rocker believes that the real turbulence was kept under the lid. Imagine what it must have felt like for the band to lose their singer, after having looked for one for such a long time. The first album was only out for 8 months. For the five months that followed, Bodine would not play live. Read on...(EN)
