How many people are working for Here Comes The Flood?
One. Me.

Why music?
Hey, music is a great subject to write about. I do tons of album and single reviews. And you can use lots of multimedia thingies like videos, MP3s and such. My neighbours listen to good music, whether they like it or not.

HCTF is on the 'net since 2004, still going strong, and updated daily. Yes, daily.

What's in it for you?
Free stuff! Free stuff! Free stuff! Mind you, part of it is crap. A huge part in fact. See also: Submitting your music for a HCTF review: the complete idiot's guide to sending me free stuff.

Who are you?
is a great song by The Who.
Me? My name is Hans Werksman, I am a man and I live in The Netherlands. Don't bother me with personal inquiries. This blog is about music, not about me. Life blogging sucks.

Who is John Cale?
A great musician.

Is Here Comes The Flood named after the Peter Gabriel song?
Yes, see for your self.

How do I contact you?
What? You missed the big contact link near the top the page?

I'm in a band and have some information/music I want you to know about.
Guess what. Contact me? Yes. See also: Submitting your music for a HCTF review: the complete idiot's guide to sending me free stuff.

I work for a PR company and we handle the publicity for ...
Ok, contact me. See also: Submitting your music for a HCTF review: the complete idiot's guide to sending me free stuff.

Can I advertise on Here Comes The Flood?
No. Ad schemes are ugly, fuck up the look-and-feel and - most importantly - are unpredictable. Who wants to see an ad by Scientology? O, you do? Please fuck off then.

I want to be a music blogger too!
You can. Just do it. The complete idiot's guide to getting free stuff might be useful.

Going Dutch

Is there a jam band scene in The Netherlands?
No. There are jam band fans, who are amazed that there are so many of them when they meet a live concert. There is only one Dutch weblog writing about it. You are reading it.

Are drugs legal in The Netherlands?
No.

Is there something wrong with The Netherlands?
O yes. Don't get me started. O, and the fact that we lost two world championship soccer finals in a row still hurts. A third chance to rule the world was blown yet again.
