Musical Revelations-I

2011 Bodine_IV_demo_front-L5 December 2017: Hello to all of you, and welcome to the Bodine Tribute Site - as far as I know, still the only one on the web. By Regular Rocker standards, I've been out of touch for a while, and I'll try to make it up to you.

In 2017 we have been celebrating Jay van Feggelen's re-appearance on stage and for those of you who haven't seen him yet: make sure you get a ticket to the show of United Voices of Rock in Leeuwarden on 16 December!

For years I have been in the possession (if that's an appropriate word for it) of Bodine music that is not very easily accessible: five tracks from the demo that Bodine Mk-IV recorded in 1992. What better occasion is there to share these songs with Jay back behind the microphone?

I've been hesitating to share this stuff since I don't have a clue about the legal copyrights to this. The point is: I think nobody knows exactly. According to mail exchange I had with someone knowledgeable, these songs have been broadcast on Baars Classic Rock since a couple of years, but you have to be lucky to catch them. To be on the safe side still, I have 'locked' the recordings behind a free registration wall. For those of you who have an account here, login and surf to to this page to find all the tracks. If you don't have an account yet, register now!

What are you reading still? GO!!!

 


 

Last opportunity

--to see Jay van Feggelen perform Bodine songs this year!

27 November 2017 For those of you who have been paying attention to the appropriate Facebook pages this is old news. For those who have desperately been waiting for an update on RR (admit it: who hasn't?): Jay van Feggelen is going to perform Bodine songs LIVE on stage, probably for the last time on 16 December 2017! Order your tickets here. Need a preview? Watch this:

SENSATION OF THE YEAR

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.

 


LATE FESTIVAL POSTER

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-III(a) would only 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!
