Album review in Hitkrant

1982-06-10 Hitkrant Bodine-Bold As Brass review tn29 June 2012: 30 years ago, Hitkrant published an edition featuring Diana Ross on the Cover. Diana Ross!!!? In case you wonder what she's doing on this site, it also featured a review on Bold As Brass. Well worth noticing!
In Dutch and in English!


25 May 2012: Bodine received airtime on Stampij, presented by guest host Alfred Lagarde's (from Betonuur) to introduce the album BOLD AS BRASS. New members Axel Langemeijer and Iron Anthony Lucassen were on the show, along with Gerard Haitsma and Armand van der Hoff. It's not clear if Rheno was present as well. Metal Mike van Rijswijk was on the show too, making an anouncement about where to book the band. "Heavy Rain" and "Rock Machine" were aired for the first time. The atmosphere in the studio was exhilarating, at one point Alfred Lagarde doens't seem to know how to keep the band in control (Axel: "Are we on air?"). Listen to the excerpt here, it's great fun:


Thanks to Han Hijzelendoorn and Paul Evers from Time is Running Productions!
The broadcast must have taken place somewhere in April 1982. Who knows the exact date? Get in touch with and tell us!


EARLIEST earliest gig date revealed

1979-03-24 Vrije Volk Bodine concert5 December 2012: The inimitable Martin Stassen broke another timeline record by uncovering the earliest documented Bodine live date so far!! Bodine performed live on 24 March 1979 in Eksit, Rotterdam. Go figure: it's supported by two sources, which you'll find in the Mk-I gigology! Thanks, Martin, for your great research!

1982-05 Aardschok no.12 Bodine live review tn

10 May 2012: After weeks of silence in the press, an article was published by Aardschok Magazine about Bodine in May 1982. It's a review of the first gig Bodine played in the Mark-II line up. And what a review. Biased as Metal Mike van Rijswijk may have been (it even earned the band a picture on the cover), he was definitely swept away by Bodine's new look and sound on stage. Bodine Mk-II made a tremendous impression and blew away main act Viva at a rock festival in Bruges. The ad for Bold As Brass on the rear tops it all off. Read the entire review in Dutch here or English there!
