The Anacondas

Merry Christmas from The Anacondas

Yeah, winter's coming up, pretty soon we we'll be on our snowboard breaks. But before that, lemme tell you what's happening...

Just on this day that we decided to move to a new rehearsel studio, our current studio somewhere in the suburbs of Amsterdam was at fire. Fortunately for The Anacondas there was no fire damage to our equipment, hopefuly there's not much water damage either.
We did one of our coolest gigs ever: backin' up for the Burlesque night at the "Comedy Theater". Check the 'Pictures' page here for an impression.

The Anacondas are featured in Noel Hudson's "The Band Name Book". And unoficial Dutch surf music guru Eddy Luca's gonna put out out a book about the history of Dutch surf. Including The Anacondas of course.
Now we're talking 'bout books: be sure to pick up a copy of Matt Warshaw's "Surf Movie Tonite". It is filled with great vintage movie poster art; something new was definitely happening back then. Here in Amsterdam you can get it at the famous "Scheltema" bookstore.

Finally, we like to remember our old friend and fellow musician Michel, who passed away not so long ago. Before we were The Anacondas, Michel always crossed our path in our former bands. Below is a picture of Michel (bald, red t-shirt) while drummer for C.K.N. (Johnny Torpedo's old hardcore band) at the C.K.N. reunion show 2005 (Parkhof, Alkmaar).

Life got its ups and downs, nevertheless we like to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Com join us at our X-mas party at Panama, Wednesday night the 24 th in Amsterdan.
See ya,
