Concert and album launch tribute to Herman Brood, Borgers and Muskee
Posted January 07 2021,
Famous drummer, Hans la Faille from Zwolle honors Brood, Borgers and Muskee with album Still Believe in collaboration with Herman Brood Museum, Zwolle.
The Herman Brood Museum in Zwolle, presents in collaboration with Hans la Faille (73) will release his new album Still Believe in the Odeon theater in Zwolle on November 10. It will be a musical tribute to the periods when he played together with Bertus Borgers (Sweet d'Buster), Harry Muskee (Cuby + Blizzards) and his childhood friend Herman Brood. Johan Derksen will receive the first copy that afternoon.
The drummer from Zwolle is making the album together with his current band 'la Faille', which he supplemented with Bertus Borgers and former Cuby band members such as Herman Deinum, Erwin Java and Ralph de Jongh. The presentation will take place on November 10, during a concert by the band in the Zwolle Odeon.
The Zwolle drummer and childhood friend of Brood is happy with the result, he says as he has just left Jan Kistjes' studio in Dalfsen. "It will be a mix of blues and rock, among other things, it is a collection of my favorite songs that I played with Bertus, Harry and Herman. So there are great songs by Brood, Sweet d'Buster and Cuby, for example "Still Believe", a song that Bertus Borgers once wrote together with Paul Smeenk, but with which Herman scored a big hit. That will also be the name of the record."
The album also includes a song that Brood wrote himself. "A special version of Get Lost. And an own version too, of Window of My Eyes, by Cuby. I'm not going to reveal anything else yet. It will be very beautiful, I can tell you that. Partly also by Jan Kisjes' studio in Dalfsen, by the way; one of the best analog studios in Europe.”
The idea arose two months ago in the Herman Brood Museum, where La Faille and owner Ivo de Lange leafed through a book about the bands in which La Faille played. "So many beautiful pieces passed by... Suddenly Ivo says: 'You have to record a record, man!' Before I knew it, he walked to the Odeon theater. The drummer gathered his current band members, called musical friends from the past and went into the studio. “I never expected it to go so well. That's great, man.''
The release and concert of the LP and CD will take place on Sunday afternoon, November 10 at 2:30 PM in the Odeon theater, Blijmarkt 21 in Zwolle next to the Herman Brood Museum and opposite the Fundatie museum. An additional concert will be on the same day, Sunday, November 10, 2019, in the evening at 8 p.m.
