Biography

Seeing the videoclip, the corpulent councillor frowned, lifted a hand from his paunch and grapped his glass of wine: ‘You are making Black Mist,’ he declared. If he had not been so convincing, Sexton Creeps would still have been making psychedelic folk-rock. Apparently Black Mist is music along the line of Nick Cave, Calexico and the Velvet Underground, with highlights towards Sonic Youth; an atmospheric trip between melancholy, fear and hysteria.

The band-collective Sexton Creeps was founded by guitarist Steven Jouwersma and vocalist J.C. with the only goal to put something on record as soon as possible. With the help of guest-musicians they recorded the EP CAS in the summer of 2006. Jouke van der Krieke (the Swains) contributes with arrangements of violin and accordeon. For bass and slide-guitars they ask Arnold Nieborg (the Monroes/the Swains). He and J.C. collaberated earlier in the Cramps-coverband the Goo Goo Mucks. Bram Nigten is attrackted to play drums. This resulted in a collection of six ominous songs for a damp and chilly winterevening.
In 2007 de band is expanded with keyboardist Martine Rademakers and bassplayer/accordionist Jos Volkers, and Sexton Creeps reaches its full strength. They start working on new material and in a crowded and hazy VERA-bar (November 2007) Sexton Creeps makes its entry in the Groninger musicscene.

    Speciale sound. De tweede band die mijn interesse heeft in het noorden. Solbakken. Ga door!
