Biography

There are multiple groups using the name “Shorts”.

1. The Shorts was a pop group from the Netherlands consisting of Hans Van Vondelen (vocals), Erik De Wildt (keyboard), Hans Stokkermans (bass guitar) and Peter Wezenbeek (drums).
The group was formed in 1976, and scored a 1983 international hit with “Comment ça va” - a song about a boy who meets a french girl but they cant understand each other.

2. In 2012 Mikael Caterer left Melbourne, Australia and settled in Brooklyn, NY with the rest of his band, Scott & Charlene’s Wedding. Beginning just before the move, and in between his hours spent teaching kindergarten in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn and touring with Scott & Charlene’s Wedding, Caterer wrote his first solo effort, an EP for a new project called Shorts.

To help round out and eventually record the demos, Caterer asked friends from his new adopted hometown, Jonah Maurer (from Free Time, Titus Andronicus, Real Estate) to play bass and Dylan Shumaker (Woodsman, Alex Bleeker and the Freaks) to play the drums. A friend from Melbourne who had also just moved to New York, Adrian Tregonning (No Zu) joined to play guitar and keys. The result is the “Berlin 1971 EP.” It’s four bratty pop songs lasting just about 12 minutes, recorded in Melbourne by Caterer and New York with the help of Jarvis Taveniere from Woods, at his new Rear House space in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
