RK Veulpoepers BV (also known as R.K. Veulpoepers B.V.) was a dutch anarcho-folk band. In 1976 RK Veulpoepers BV was initiated in the Dutch province of Brabant, in the village Hilvarenbeek. This group was specialized in happy-folkmusic with Dutch lyrics. Lyrics with a lot of engagement about the morals of Christian-Democrats and commercial media and a band with a lot of activities against establishment. In their own environment they fight against local authorities.

Results: They organized their own youth-culture-centre and art-festival “Bikse Fiste” (1977-1981), with 70.000 visitors in 1981 (red.: the population of Hilvarenbeek was just 10.000 people). This ‘Collective’ played on big parties and political manifestations, everywhere in Holland. In 1978 Veulpoepers make the LP-recording Diarree. They are concerned about SHELL, aggressive Police and N-bomb, but ordinary lyrics were not avoided. The band was influenced by groups like BOTS, Muszikas ( Hungary), Alain Stivell (France) and Gwendal (France/Spain) as well as Dubliners and Fairport Convention maybe... In 1979 Veulpoepers move to Tilburg. Den Egelantier just didn’t achieve a high place on the hit-charts.

They refused to compromise to the rules of show-business (like ‘play-back’ in TV-shows) and that meant the end of the hit-single. In 1981 they released their second album the title "Een frisse wind" (Fresh air), which was recorded live on their own festival ‘Bikse Fiste’. They started other projects for their foundation like action-orchestre Fanfare van de Eeuwigdurende Bijstand ( Fanfare of the everlasting solidarity)”, Printshop ‘Overmorgenklaarzeker’( “ReadyTomorrow?”), music-pub ‘Den Egelantier’, children-theater ‘PielekePoep’ and publisher ‘Polypoepka’. On 5 September 1982 the RK Veulpoepers BV, after 600 performances, stopped with a goodbye-concert for 30.000 people in Leypark, Tilburg. They presented their third album "Houdoe, bedankt en blijf wakker " (Goodbye,thanks and stay awake). In 1996 the RKBV decided to organize a reunion. They played in Tilburg and Amsterdam with their original lineup. They also released a new album on Sony-music called “Van de pot gerukt”. Read more on Last.fm.
