"QUILTS" | #4 April

Gewapend met zijn gitaar, zijn vermogen om via liedjes boeiende  verhalen te vertellen en een tanklading aan covers—welke hem, naar eigen zeggen, veilig houden in donkere tijden—speelt de sinner-songwriter zijn eerste volledige cover-show BLANKETS.
“Blankets zijn dekens, dekens zijn covers, covers zijn liedjes, liedjes houden je warm, blankets ook... cirkel rond, niet?”  -Jean, December 2018

Elke ochtend op de dag van de performance trok #JK zich terug voor een laatste repetitie. Op dat moment besloot hij welke covers hij die avond of middag of zelfs wekend zou spelen.
En elke keer nam hij de sessie op. Deze opnames worden verzameld onder de noemer "QUILTS"


Songs: Joan Of Arc / American Girl / Friday On My Mind / Heroes / Famous Blue Raincoat / A Singer Must Die / It's Alright With Me / Papa Don't Preach Final rehearsal: April 21 Performed: April 21 (Rotterdam)

gravedancing | NEW ITEMS IN THE STORE...

GRAVEDANCING is perhaps one of the darkest of all Jean's songs. It investigates life through a lens of unlimited possibilities, while the pressure of the rigid outside world, and the limitations of organised religion (in all of its forms) push the protagonist down.
Even though the base of the song is located in Zaanstad, through the bordered "small-minded" sonic landscape of INDUSTRIAL CITY IN THE CLOUDS as well as INDUSTRIAL CITY RMXS, the song has direct links with the Bayou just outside New Orleans. The protagonist is very much interested in the possibilities of what Voodoo can do and invests his education into a mild form of witchcraft.
This inspired the new collection, now presented in the shop, labelled "gravedancing,""gravedancing voodoo," and "gravedancing voodoo II".
With the main colours (very much like earlier collections) red, white and black, we offer an array of home-decoration items, as well as apparel, mugs, notebooks and tow…
