Where to begin?

A little hitory first. I started White Rose Transmission as a project together with Adrian Borland of The Sound in 1995. Together, we also worked with Mark Burgess of the Chameleons as well as with Amanda Palmer of the Dresden Dolls and Marty Wilson Piper of the Church, just to name a few members from the long list of all artists who joined in…
White Rose Transmission was the side door for our befriended artists to put their creativity in, and be part of it, without the need to demand for success. But nevertheless, the success was unexpectedly huge. Our debut album became second, after Tom Waits, for the German Record award nomination back in 1995.
However, this success came at a high price… Sadly, after the release of our second album Adrian took his life while he was working on his solo album in April 1999…
White Rose Transmission seemed to be doomed as being history by then,
but I carried on a few years later with my good friend Rob Keijzer on board. Together we 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 a brilliant 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 myself on a follow up album for White Rose Transmission.
Already after a first session in Frank’s studio in Amsterdam, the three of us immediately knew that there was some magic going on! Slowly but gradually the project evolved into something really solid. During one of these sessions Frank worked on an old Adrian Borland recording and built a complete new arrangement around Adrian’s original vocal. Talking about magic! The result of this is a mesmerizing version of Adrian’s epic song ‘Foreign land’…. From that moment on the complete album was getting shaped just like we were being guided by an invisible hand……
Spiders in the Mind Web is already being marked by insiders as an intriging and timeless document. A concept album with no beginning and without an end. White Rose Transmission will keep your ears captured in a translucant and sometimes surreal musical environment, with music influences ranging from Pink Floyd to Jeff Buckley and beyond….
So yes, you better buckle up and prepare yourself for a trip into the Mind Web……
