The Cords


The Dutch band Cords that was founded in 1990 by Simone Holsbeek (vocals), Trush (formerly known as Maz) Morsink (guitar), Arnoudt Pieters (drums) and Marc Fabels (bass), found a very unique sound amidst influences such as Sonic Youth, Soundgarden,My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins, which can be best described as noise rock-meets-psychedelia. That distinct sound was picked up by the legendary BBC radio maker John Peel, who invited Cords to London for a Peel Session. Read more on Last.fm
The Dutch band Cords that was founded in 1990 by Simone Holsbeek (vocals), Trush (formerly known as Maz) Morsink (guitar), Arnoudt Pieters (drums) and Marc Fabels (bass), found a very unique sound amidst influences such as Sonic Youth, Soundgarden,My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins, which can be best described as noise rock-meets-psychedelia. That distinct sound was picked up by the legendary BBC radio maker John Peel, who invited Cords to London for a Peel Session. Being Melody Maker's pick for '93 Cords caught the interest of NYC based TVT Records and despite offers from both Dutch and English record companies, Cords –as one of the first Dutch bands in history – signed a record deal with them for their debut album, Taurus No Bull. The band moves into a loft in downtown New York during the recordings and do lots of gigs (including the notorious CBGB’S). Later that year they recorded the Gasping EP at The Magic Shop Studio (NY), again followed by a tour through the U.S.A.

Briefly interupted for a performance on the very first Lowlands Festival. In 1994 Cords embark on two extensive European tours with The Gun Club. Jacky Sunshine joined Cords on bass and big festivals like Roskilde, Sziget Hungary and Dynamo Open Air all got their share of the searing noise music by Cords. The 2nd full length album ” Hear! See! Feel! Taste!” was initially released independently in 1995, but soon licensed to Emperor Norton in the States and Shock Records in Australia. A short tour 'down under' followed whilst Cords added fifth member Yuko Murata. 1997 saw the release of their successor “No Guru No Method No Beeper” and in 1999 the by Steve Albini (PJ Harvey, Nirvana) recorded album “Lunchbox” is released.

However, in October of the same year the members decided to pursue their own musical paths, which meant the end of Cords. Or did it? A single reunion gig in the summer of 2004 seems close, but the sudden death of drummer Arnoudt Pieters in July of that year puts a sad end to those plans. In 2009 two requests for Cords to do 2 special shows are irresistible for the remaining bandmembers; the rest is - brand new - history. Read more on Last.fm.
