this broadcast is a part of the series of repeats of the VAN OEKEL'S DISCOHOEK tv shows from 1974. the original instalments of this alternate pop music program still are vividly remembered over here as they were totally anarchistic and 'not done' (to normal people). in fact it were plays written by the locally (in)famous wim t. schippers as satires on some popular dutch top-40 programs.
unfortunately, time fails to tell more about the clumsy anchor man SJEF VAN OEKEL = dolf brouwers, the very dry accountant EVERT VAN DER PIK = jaap bar, and all the things that intentionally went wrong during the shows: telephones ringing, scenery tumbling down, hell's angels riding into the studio, turntables at wrong speed or with the wrong record, etc., etc....
to us, the most important artist who ever got lost in that chaos was captain beefheart! although he was in the middle of his unconditionally guaranteed crisis and only could produce terrible music, his performance in the program is an absolutely must see. for his singing during the song UPON THE MY-O-MY is so clearly played back - which was the usual trick by then - we'd better call it 'play beside'...
in this repeated showing we (well, mainly dútch beefheartians - i'm sorry) also can find out why and how don van vliet gets a trophy, and whistles 'the beatles' evergreen 'yesterday' ...
