Biography

WHITE ROSE TRANSMISSION
is a project that whenever it will happen it will happen! (Adrian Borland & Carlo van Putten).

‘White Rose Transmission, started in1995 as a collaboration between Carlo van Putten (at that time vocalist of The Convent; now the singer of Dead Guitars) and Adrian Borland (frontman of english 80’s cultband The Sound). WRT did two album releases with the input and help of different collaborating artists such as Marty Wilson Piper (The Church), Mark Burgess (The Chameleons) and Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls). After the sudden death of Adrian Borland White Rose Transmission seemed to be doomed as being history, but Carlo carried on a few years later with his good friend Rob Keijzer on board. Together they recorded a collection of acoustic idea’s and stripped down these songs to the bare basics, which resulted in the third WRT album ‘Bewitched & Bewildered’ in 2006. For the next album Rob got in touch with Frank Weyzig, a long time friend and songwriter, known for his work with ‘Clan of Xymox’ and ‘Born For Bliss’. Maybe coincidence, or just faith but Frank was also a huge Adrian Borland fan himself and liked the idea of working together with Rob and Carlo on a follow up album for White Rose Transmission.

Already after a first session in Frank’s studio in Amsterdam, they immediately knew that there was some magic going on! Slowly but gradually the project evolved into something really solid.

    I believe it's wrong to continue the band since Adrian's gone! Totally wrong! What is the point? I think it defeats the object of what this project was
