The Nits

In the winter of 1989 I discovered a Dutch band that made pop music with a lot of brains. They sounded like they had attented art school, but still there music wasn't arty farty or difficult, it remained pop music foremost...
The Nits have recently released a new album, with their original -and most successfull- members all aboard again. Doing the dishes lives up to the expectations.
However, if you wish to get acquainted with them and hear what they are capable of, the best introduction remains their 1989 live double album, Urk, which did the trick for me anyway.
I hope you'll enjoy these songs :

From Doing the dishes :
The flowers (mp3) is their first radio release in The Netherlands for the new album

From Urk :
  • An eating house (mp3)
  • J.O.S. days (mp3) : probably the best song about football (soccer for most of you non-Europeans) EVER !
  • Nescio (mp3)

This is the original video clip for probably their best known song (In the Dutch mountains) :

You can buy their music here
