Product notities

On this brand new album Truus is taking her exploration into circuit bending onto a new plateau. Instead of merely make noises she backs it with solid rhythms, hooks and catchy melodies & lyrics. The music is minimal yet very layered and mostly unique. It is perfect for a club environment! To quote one of her fans 'this is the album Lady Gaga should have made'! DANCE WITH ME was recorded at Ranch, Escondido, CA, 2010 and 2011. Mixed by Truus de Groot. Mastered by Peter Mavrogeorgis for Silver Alert Productions at Dollhouse Studios, NY, May 2011 - Post Production Manager: James Sclavunos Bio Plus Instruments' existence spans over the last 3 decades. Established in 1978 by Truus de Groot in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, she tinkered with toy and electronic instruments in her flat - amidst the explosion of Punk Rock. Even though Truus was very active in that genre and "New Wave" as well, the more experimental side gradually took over and the concept of Plus Instruments was born. Plus Instruments released their first e.p. single in 1979 on Dutch label Plurex with a duet called "BandT-Plus Instruments" (the B stands for 'Bregt' and T is Truus). Playing odd electronic instruments, Bass and vocals, most of their performances were improvised. They teamed up Michel Waisvisz, the inventor of the Crackle Synthesizer in numerous performances where they peddled their strange single. At the same time she was also the lead singer in the popular Dutch New Wave Band "Nasmak". In 1980 they released an album also on the Dutch label Plurex. That album was entitled Nasmak Plus Instruments, Instruments Plus Nasmak, indicating that the experimental side of Plus Instruments had already vastly infused Nasmak. After hundreds of performances all through Europe Truus was looking for more challenges and in 1980 that became a possibility after she went to see Rhys Chatham play in her hometown of Eindhoven she struck up a friendship with the drummer, David Linton. He extended an invitation to her for a NYC visit. In 1981 she got on a plane to NYC never to call the Netherlands her home again. Armed with background tapes of electronic percussion she reformed Plus Instruments with Lee Renaldo (now in Sonic Youth) on guitar and David Linton on Drums, while Truus played Bass and sang Lead Vocals. They quickly recorded and released an album 'February - April 1981' on the Dutch Kremlin label. With this line-up they hit the New York club scene, released an Album and on to a European Tour. After returning to the US, David and Lee went their own way and Truus reformed the band with a variety of NY musicians (Jonathan Schneider, Craig Kafton), always very active on the club scene both in NY and Europe. They ecorded another album that was never released and is sitting in the vaults. Eventually one EP was released in 1982 with two cuts by Plus Instruments and Nasmak on the other side, on the German label Zick Zack. Truus in turn briefly toured Europe under the name Plus Instruments with James Sclavunos, Annene Kay and Marula. In 1983 Truus took a U-turn from the Electronic experimental Euro-Beat and temporarily moved to Memphis to start Trigger & the Thrill Kings with Jim Duckworth (Gun Club) playing a very raunchy Blues, country rockabilly mix. Again they toured throughout Europe and the US and released various records. From that point Plus Instruments went into hibernation. 2011 is the year Plus Instruments will come out of hibernation with a brand new CD. Stay tuned, expected release is June / July. The full length CD will feature mostly Truus with select guest performances and it will be an overall selection of songs with driving beats, grinding synthesizer grooves and haunting vocals.
