THE FOX on TransVormers CD

My band THE FOX were invited to perform at the last TransVormers festival (we performed there last time while filming for MTV Was Here) but a foot injury with our drummer meant that we had to cancel at the last minute.

Fortunately, we were also invited to have a track on their compilation CD, celebrating the 5th year of the Volkskrant building as a cultural and creative centre. There we are on track 21.

Joining all girl band THE FOX

So I've recently joined an all girl pop-rock band, and had my debut performance on guitar. As a compromise for not singing harmonies I gave myself in to the guitar. It didn’t matter that I can only play 3 chords, because I just became the new rhythm guitarist! Who are THE FOX?

From L-R: Sharon Steinfort (lead guitar/backing vocals), Janice Wong (cello/rhythm guitar), Eva Koreman (drums), Celine Prins (lead vocals/keys) and Mirjam von Bannisseht (bass and vocals). (Photo by Andreas from The Dingo Birds)

The weirdest cello end pin stopper (or most innovative)

In Amsterdam there are 3 very typical about Dutch houses: large windows with no curtains, high ceilings and wooden floors. Beautiful houses, perfect for making music actually. But it concerns me to put scratches and dents into the floor boards with my cello end pin. On this particular day I forgot to bring an end-pin stopper (rubber stopperdonutblack hole etc.) so we had to improvise. I asked if the boys had any type of carpet and this is what they came up with:

His name is Gorgon Korvar Berg from IKEA. He’s from Sweden. Yes, one tiger was hurt in the making of this photo. :’(
