Few indie rock bands have the longevity of Bettie Serveert, founded in 1986... The Dutch trio return to their roots with Pharmacy of Love. With Joppe Molenaar (of the Dutch band Voicst) on drums, they tackle the songs with renewed vigour. The edge is back, an element that had gone missing on their latest stutio album Attagirl and the acoustic Bare Stripped Naked live album.
With guitar player Peter Visser dominating the mix and singer Carol van Dyk sounding confident Pharmacy of Love is as close to "rawk" as they are able to get. Named after Dutch tennis player Betty Stöve they scored an ace when they needed it. Bring on the next set.
Carol van Dyk: vocals, guitar
Peter Visser: guitar
Herman Bunskoeke: bass
