ANTISCENE BOOKRELEASE GALLERY


FRIDAY NOVEMBER 30TH WAS THE OFFICIAL RELEASE OF THE BOOK ANTISCENE BY ROTTERDAM BASED PHOTOGRAPHER CARLA VD MAREL. SHE DOCUMENTED THE ROTTERDAM UNDERGROUND BETWEEN 1983 AND 2003, IN HER DISCINCTIVE BLACK & WHITE STYLE. SHE HAS BEEN A REAL SOURCE OF INSPIRATION TO ME, FOLLOWING BANDS THAT NEVER MADE IT BIG, AND I HOPE TO MAKE A FOLLOWUP ON HER BOOK SOME DAY. FOR HER RELEASEPARTY SHE BROUGHT BACK SOME OF THESE LONG FORGOTTEN MUSICAL HEROES. YOU CAN READ A LOT MORE ON CARLA IN THE INTERVIEW I DID EARLIER AND THE REVIEW I WROTE (BOTH IN DUTCH). KEEP CHECKING HER WEBSITE, WHICH WILL BE TURNED INTO A REAL ARCHIVE OF ROTTERDAM MUSIC PRETTY SOON.
