Not the Betties but... [Jan. 9th, 2011|05:23 am]
Dreamaniacs Don't Age

... rather a side-project-type-thingy that Carol and Peter were working on last year in Australia. The band is called Me & Stupid and the CD comes out at the end of January, unfortunately only in the Netherlands, but it can be downloaded starting in May from the site http://www.inacabinwith.com, or ordered online. Here's the first single, 14th Floor:



There are a few more songs to listen to on their Facebook page:

I really like the songs I've heard; planning to download it when that option becomes available.

Wrote a rather rambly blog entry about seeing the Betties earlier tonight and meeting Carol:

Tom Boy live in Chicago [Oct. 3rd, 2010|10:35 pm]

From misterbluemeanie on YouTube (the same guy who uploaded the previous vids--which are fixed now I think):



I'll edit my last post and embed the re-uploaded vids there too.

(btw I kind of wonder how many times they've played this song over the years...)

Two live videos from Chicago [Oct. 3rd, 2010|12:32 am]
Dreamaniacs Don't Age

mystical_chickn
Not taken by me, I live in Portland and have never been to Chicago, except maybe once for a plane layover. Anyway, these are both awesome sound/video quality. BTW they made a mistake on the date, it should say 2010, not 2001:

Under the surfaceCollapse )

EDIT: Okay, the videos aren't going to work for a little while. I had posted a comment about the wrong date on one of the videos, and the guy sent me a message on YouTube and said thanks for finding the typo, but he would have to take the videos down entirely in order to fix it. So they'll probably be down for a couple of days. He said he'd let me know when they're back up, so I'll repost when they are. He also said he had about an hour of footage from the Chicago show.

edit again: although he didn't say when he was planning on taking them down to fix them, so they might still work for a while. But if you try to play them and it says they're down, the above edit is why ^_^

Grandson of Edit: Videos are back up! :D Post has been edited with correct embed code.

Man, this comm is just about dead, isn't it? *pulls out defibrillator paddles* Clear! *bzzzzzt!* More people need to be Betties fans, for serious. Just thought I'd post a video and a link to one as well. This is my second-favorite track off Pharmacy Of Love:



Also here is a mini-tour of Amsterdam with the Betties:

On another note, I'm going to see them live in October (for the first time!) and I'm so excited. :D

release date for new Betties CD [Nov. 10th, 2009|12:02 am]
Dreamaniacs Don't Age

mystical_chickn
The new Bettie Serveert CD will be called "Pharmacy Of Love" and will be released January 11, 2010.

First single called "Deny All" comes out November 27th, 2009.

Source: their Twitter.

(Except that Jan 11 is a Monday, and CDs are released on Tuesdays at least here in the States. So I dunno if it means Jan 11 everywhere, or just in Europe, and the US gets it like on the 12th or on a later date.)

I made an animated GIF icon from part of the video for "Roadmovies", off the Bare Stripped Naked DVD. Snatch if you want to :D

(sorry it's so tiny, though! I hate LJ's kb-size restrictions on GIF icons. I could have made it slightly longer, but that made it all jerky and weird-looking when it looped back to the beginning.)

The Betties have a Twitter now, you can find it at http://twitter.com/bettieserveert They only have five tweets right now though... but they've twittered links to a few new pics and videos.

Also about two months ago I drew a manga version of Carol:

under the cutCollapse )

I posted it to their MySpace as a comment and about a week later I got a message from Carol, and she said "as Peter says, this is EXACTLY what I look like now!"

I came across this video via the Betties myspace a while back. I love it and hope it makes it to an album one day.

Perhaps you will like it too:

Chitlin' Fooks [Aug. 12th, 2008|01:37 pm]

As you may or may not know, Carol van Dyk has an alt-country/americana side-project with Pascal Deweze of Sukilove. They are called Chitlin' Fooks and I managed to find both of their CDs at my favorite record store. I bought the debut and I love it more and more with every listen. Check it out if you can find it. My favorite track is "Seen it All" which is on their MySpace: http://myspace.com/chitlinfooks

I emailed Carol on her MySpace when I found it and she said she was surprised I did, as "it was only a small release!" A few weeks later I emailed her again to tell her I loved the debut CD, and she asked me if I'd heard Sukilove yet. I hadn't, so I checked them out, and loved them instantly. I need to find one of their CDs as well.
