Blowbeat History in a Nutshell Blowbeat took off in the early eighties, evolving out of the Ton Engels Band. The first Blowbeat line-up : Ton Engels - vocals/guitar Cor Mutsers - bass/vocals Rene Creemers - drums/vocals The band played the Dutch club circuit of the time and made one album in that pre-cd era: Hands Up! Songs like Will He Come From His Castle and Lets Talk Shit from that album are still on todays setlist. In 1986 the band consists of: Ton E - vocals/guitar Jorg Lehnardt - guitar/vocals Pieter Douma - bass/vocals Rene Creemers - drums This funky ensemble played numerous gigs, extensively touring the German and Swiss clubs. All this lasted untill about 1993. In 1991 Rene Creemers left the band. ( In recent years Rene has a successful virtuoso drum-duo called The Drumbassadors ) Arthur Lijten took over the drumspot. Two albums were released during those days.

Blowbeat was released in 1989 and Chaisaw Melodies saw the light in 1992. In 1993 bassplayer Pieter Douma thought it was time for a change and quit the band. Arthur Lijten also had other things on his mind. Consequently not much happened Blowbeat-wise for the remainder of the nineties. Occasionally a few concerts were played with varying line-ups.(on bass people like Emma Steffens, Stu Grimshaw and Eric Coenen came and went) In the second half on the nineties much time went into other musical projects. Ton Engels recorded two albums ( called Plat and Wermer As Vandaag ). The lyrics on those records are in Ton s first language; a Dutch dialect as spoken in his little hometown Helden in the South East part of the Netherlands. Several Blowbeat buddies are also playing on these albums. Finally in 2002, Ton E succeeded in bringing four people together again that where willing and able.

A new quartet that could serve that typical Blowbeat cocktail once more : Arhur Lijten (various artists) - drums,vocals Eric Coenen (Ilse DeLange, Stevie Ann) - bass, vocals Leendert Haaksma (Anouk, Candy Dulfer, Soulvation) - guitar Ton Engels - vocal, guitar And so...The Beat Goes On...................... That was 2002. With everybody busy as they are it took another four years to finally complete a new Blowbeat album. The title: Songs From The Crazy Planet.

Scheduled for release 20 October 2006. Check it out - It sure has been a long time coming. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
