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 about to leave the band and there were only two gigs left for him with Bodine. Fat chance this is the last autograph card including all band members.

 

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.


Mk-IV AUTOGRAPH CARD - The Flip Side

1984-03-30 Krogt-sclick to enlarge18-12-2015: Since everything over a handful is wasted, Regular rocker kept a mysterious afterburner of Marcel Ebbelaar's Autograph Card posted a few months ago. Apart from a shoe print, it reads that the venue 't Krogt had been burglared prior to the concert. The damage added up to 3,000.- guilders in missing appliances and 1,000.- in necessary repairs. As a gesture of charity, the bands listed for that day agreed to play for free, so that all the ticket revenues could be used as a down payment on new gear. Ain't that sympathetic?

Moreover, it turns out that it was a festival with 6 bands and Bodine was listed as (this is where the mystery starts) Axel Langemeyer, Jeronimo and Arjen Lucassen--supported by "Fast Bas" on the drums.

Fast WHO?

Fast Bas.

Whatever.


CRYPTIC MK-IV SET LIST

Bodine Mk-IV set list-tnBodine Mk-IV set list19 December 2015: Look what social media dragged in! Another unique relic from Bodine's Mk-IV heydays (which didn't last too long), delivered to Regular Rocker by no one other than Jeronimo! Yes, dear Bodinists, being connected via social media may have some benefits after all! Apart from a lot of distraction, every once in a while, some serious historic stuff is being shared with us. This time it's a set list from a gig by Bodine in 1992 or 1993. To make it even more interesting, the list is ENCRYPTED
