Catweazle – rehearsal recordings   Leave a comment

The tiny yet amazing O.R.K.Z. rehearsalroom! Catweazle practised here every week from 1990-1998. When Oene/Fleas And Lice joined as a 2nd guitarplayer for a very brief period in 1995, there was not enough space and someone had to stand outside with the cable going under the door into the room. And during hot summerdays, water was literally running down the walls… Concerts were always hard work coz the place was on the first floor with slippery stairs.
