About the album

The Ploctones. A group with a rare solidity, determination and flexibility. A genuine four-headed monster.
Whether it concerns a rhythmic tour de force, a fun idea or a tearjerker, the quartet always sounds solid and the group members never cease to surprise each other. The changes and shifting times are whizzing past our ears.

The band of Anton Goudsmit, winner Devil 'best pop gitarist' and VPRO Boy Edgar Award for jazz, has together with saxophonist Ephraim Trujillo, bass player Jeroen Vierdag and drummer Martijn Vink poured down on new notes, new rhythms and new grooves. After many years of service to the indomitable New Cool Collective, Goudsmit is now fully devoted to his own anarchist gang.

The band already plays almost a decade in this formation and they never get enough of it. The men are evenly matched and surprise each other constantly with quirky input and intense interplay. 'Ploc' is already the fourth album by The Ploctones.

The inside of the arwork is provided by Typex - known for his cartoon illustrations of music, movies and arts. The booklet can be unfolded to a poster which Typex illustrated a comic story about the cover photo.
