Call Me A Train

Call me a train is a "Slagerij van Kampen" classic. Last Thursday Wanita and I went to the Schouwburg (Theatre) in Rijswijk to see Slagerij van Kampen. A strange name. A slagerij is Dutch for a butcher shop. Van Kampen is a very Dutch name. Not pronounced as "Ven Kempen" but the a is an ah, like the ah in "hard"(to pronounce). So Vahn Kahmpun. Now I'm in a flow "Slagerij", the a is not an ah but Slaaagurei. Well Slaagurei vahn Kahmpun is a Dutch drummers group, founded in 1982 and now in different formations playing for about 40 to 50 thousand people, year in year out. This year they added a brass section and it truly was a remarkable performance. Their new album "Lip Service", is so good, we just had to buy it.

On Thursday they played a variation to this "Call me a train" oldie, but I will let you hear the original. Without any distractions of jumping drummers, girls in tight halter tops, beautiful long hair or guys with real muscles. Just the music. I chose this number because the first train today made it's maiden journey underground for the very first time from the Hague to Rotterdam.

So in honour of the train, and as a big thank you to Slagerij van Kampen, ladies and gentlemen please let's hear it for: Call Me a Train!
