After "Bijous Bijous" birthday party it was so sunny in the morning that we decided to have a after party in the Westerpark in Amsterdam, few beers later this dude appears out of nowhere and starts taking his clothes off and screaming into the sun "Im so depressed", after a while the dude disappeared. On our way back home we heard a lady screaming for help, guess what the same dude wanted to kill himself but probably changed his mind and he was hanging on the canal bridge all naked, we help him out and told him to go home and sleep. picture by Vicent Teen

EP : Big Nils - Bitch Gutsssssss 7"

Big Nils is a raw and noisy punk band from Northampton, Mass. This bands becomes of some importance once i knew that the daughter of Sonic Youth Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore is the leading singer, beside the family roots they are extremely good too and there is a familiar sonic distortion and aggression in their music than can be seen as the Sonic Youth legacy. Must be quite overwhelming to have a name like Coco Gordon-Moore attached to you
