Bettie Serveert

My brother-in-law Pete has been wanting to suggest something for 3hive for awhile now, I think, and although he’s pretty much committed to the music of his glory days in the mid- to late-80s — think U2’s Boy or Rum, Sodomy and the Lash by The Pogues — he pulled through with Bettie Serveert. “Attagirl,” off the Dutch band’s recent album of the same name, kind of has a new wave groove going, maybe. Anyway, Pete’s a hero of mine, along with my sister-in-law Cindy, because they actually hired a babysitter(!) for my favorite niece and nephew and went to see Bettie Serveert live(!!) not too long ago. They even got her autograph(!!!). I can hardly remember those days…

    The Pogues!!!! Now there's a band aching to be posted! Thanks for the Bettie, though. Cheers!

  • Got "her" autograph? Bettie is a band, not a person. Maybe they get Jethro Tull's autograph too?

    Geez, we can't get anything past you guys. Bettie Serveert's lead singer is a "she" named Carol van Dyk. Sorry that was unclear.
    PS I don't think Pete likes Jethro much.

  • Eh, as a kid, I always referred to Blondie as "her". Hmmm…now there's an interesting comparison…

  • hey a bettie serveert track. Wow it took you guys long to put one of them on-line. Hmm they've even been in Q nowadays. But still keep up the good work.

    Hey, Bettie Serveert! Whoa, it's been a while. Nice! Great new skin, too.

    Well, I've seen thicker-headed examples of this. Namely, someone wanting to know more about, "Velocity Girl and her music" at one point.

    Mmm… Good stuff.

  • Ooh, I liiiike. Thanks!
