Isn't that Jeronimo in the right? It is!
Iron Anthony and Axel are really giving it all they've got

This photo set shows Bodine during a sound check before the gig takes off. These photos are actually quite rare, often there was no time for sound checks before concerts. At festivals, it was not uncommon that the program suffered delays, which the operators tried to compensate for by skipping sound checks for the next band. It also happened that a band arrived late due to misunderstandings between operator, management and band members about exact point in time, or simply due to vague driving instructions. There weren't any navigation systems in those days, you know...

  • Great pics !
    Another (small) evidence for this being MKIII is the black sticker on the bassdrum.
    This is the same one i bought at the gig i attended, 29-10-83 Eland-Delft.

  • Geweldige site ben een groot fan van Bodine dit was m,n eerste metalband die ik LIVE hoorde in het jongerencentrum de BUK BUK in Heiloo. Ik speel thuis nog regelmatig een aantal nummers van Bodine op een van m,n meerdere gitaren.

    This was in Bussum in Opsessie (they changed the name from 't Krogt to Opsessie somewhere around that time) on 30-03-1984. This venue was in my hometown at the time so I know the place (and people) very well!

    Cheers, Jeronimo
