at Marktrock Podium '99, a nomination for the Golden CJP-award '99 and a place
in the finals of the European Newcomer Bands Festival Emergenza (AB Brussels,

The group will be playing a number of gigs in Germany in june, will spend the
summer going to the festivals (Suikerrock, Marktrock, Cultuurmarkt), and will
go to Germany, Spain and Holland in the Autumn.

("Things To Do") is also the one that convinces me the most of the potentiality
of this band.
The track "Jelly" in it's two mixes (one loud and uncompromising), the
other softer & with the synth more to the foreground lacks some "je-ne-sais-quoi"
