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-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!


Mk-IV AUTOGRAPH CARD

1984-03-30 Bodine Autographs-sclick to enlarge18-12-2015: Marcel Ebbelaar attended a Bodine gig on 30 March 1984 at 't Krogt in Bussum. Anyone guess why this is a unique document? Right... Arjen Lucassen was parting the band and there were only two gigs left for him with Bodine. Fat chance this is one of the latest autograph card from all Bodine members combined.

 

ANOTHER NEW OLD GIG DATE SAVED FROM OBLIVION

18 December 2015: Martin 'Stunning' Stassen has a radar for obscure gig dates. A few months ago, he shared a couple of articles from a local daily called the Goudsche Courant. They are two announcements of a festival called Rock Against Fascism that took place in Over De Brug in Gouda, on 5 May 1980 (Liberation Day for the Dutch). It's a unique date, because it was listed before the debut album was released.

 

To the genuine Bodinist, this just proves how many years Bodine were ahead of time, standing up against fascism. Alongside De Mo and More, a band from Gouda, Bodine took the stage to make a statement! The editor, Hans van Raalte, however, didn't have a clue about Bodine's presence at the festival. According to his limited views, rock music only invoked aggression, instead of reducing it.
