This Yellow Light on the Crowd

Today's song is a gem from the '90s that I hope people aren't forgetting: "Tom Boy" by Bettie Serveert. The clip below is from 1995 at Pinkpop, a festival in the Netherlands. Turns out, when you search for "Pinkpop" on YouTube, there are literally thousands of high-quality clips (though a disconcerting number of them feature Evanescence). There's Pearl Jam tearing through "Porch" in 1992, R.E.M. doing "World Leader Pretend" in 1989, and Radiohead ending a set with "How to Disappear Completely."

Anyway, here's Bettie Serveert. After about the 4:30 mark, it's mostly guitar wankery, if that's your kind of thing:

It is my thing! Thanks for this. That album was pretty great, if I remember correctly. It's somewhere in the apartment on cassette....cb
