1979-07-06 Paradiso gig list4 October 2011: Another SCOOP on! The earliest concert date thus far was traced back (another feat by Martin Stassen) to Friday 6 July 1979--in Paradiso, Amsterdam, of all places! It figures what bluff it must have taken to put a band on the bill that didn't even have a record out then. Friday is the main out-going night of the week, Paradiso was and is a major concert venue, all the great bands of the earth have played there, including Judas Priest, Ian Gillan, Thin Lizzy--you name it.

1982-10-01_Bodine_Arnhem_04 30 September 2011: Another contribution by Martin Stassen takes us back to the Mk-II period of live performance, through these photos here, taken at the Stokvishal in Arnhem, 1 October 1982. Even though the photos may not be very sharp, they give an impression of the kind of space Bodine performed in. Based on the photos, it seemed crowded. The Stokvishal could hold 1,200 visitors and also hosted acts like Ramones, Motörhead, Iggy Pop and Elvis Costello. The question that remains after seeing these photos is: where is the backdrop? (Further digging in the Forum...)

1983-04-30_Borne_Rock_Explosion_poster 25 September 2011: Martin Stassen keeps sending in valuable material related to Bodine's musical career. How about this poster of the Rock Explosion festival in Borne, that took plae on 30 April 1983? Remember--it was Armand van der Hoff's farewell gig and it practically went up in smoke because the sound was poor and the lights went on too early. Bodine called it quits after playing five songs, according to Aardschok. What a disappointment this must have been--both for the band and for the fans...

23 September 2011: OOPS!

Nederpop_Encyclopedie_Park_Lane_tnMartin Stassen kindly pointed out that the band "Park Lane" that is referred to in this Hitkrant article IS NOT the Park Lane that Jay van Feggelen sang in! There happens to have been two Park Lanes, one in Utrecht, one in Amsterdam! Jay was in the Utrecht Park Lane. The evidence is given in the entry about Park Lane from the Nederpop Encyclopedie by Roeland Bajema. RegularRocker knew that there was an English Mr. Big and a U.S. Mr. Big, as well as a Dutch Atilla and a US one, but there is a continent of difference between them... Two Park Lanes within 30 kilometers, in the same country, exisiting simultaneously--it does not sound very obvious, does it?
This update rectifies the 20 September 2011 update below... sincerest apologies to all people harmed by this ignorance!
