Catweazle – rehearsal recordings 1988 – 1998

It all starts in the old rehearsalroom of the W.N.C. squat where the name was also changed from Trofoblast to Catweazle. After a while, the rehearsalroom moves next to the big concerthall and after the eviction in may 1990 we get into the tiny yet amazing O.R.K.Z. rehearsalroom (3mtr by 3mtr). Catweazle practise here every week from 1990-1998. When Oene/Fleas And Lice joins as a 2nd guitarplayer for a brief period in 1995, there is not enough space and someone has to stand outside with the cable going under the door into the practiseroom. And during hot summerdays, water is literally running down the walls. Concerts are always hard work coz the place is on the first floor with slippery stairs.

Getting behind the drumkit in the corner was always tricky business
