(1982 – 1987)

Meaning Bandname: The name Indirekt comes from the fact that we as friends used that word in about every sentence. Even if it had any meaning or not. “Wil je koffie?”, “Indirekt wel ja”. (“Do you want coffee?”, “Indirecty yes”). Once a bandname, it got a deeper meaning because we indirectly battled against the establishment through our music and lyrics.

Bio: From Hoorn. The idea to begin a band started in spring 1982 thanks to the punkconcerts in Troll, a youthcentre in Hoorn. The energy, passion and lyrics and the fact you didn’t have to master an instrument or be able to read any musical notes made us think we can do it as well. Just do it, capture that energy and voice our dissatsfaction. After almost 140 concerts in several European countries and the Netherlands plus after various releases, the band ends with a concert on 26 December 1987 in De Buze, Steenwijk. In 1992 were two reunion concerts in Belgium and in 2003 a short concert on the Hans Engel memorial in Hoorn. He was the vocalist for The Vernon Walters and was murdered that same year. Some members (Rick, Jeroen and Ruud) continue as Antic Hay.

Description: Hardcorepunk. Dutchlanguage, intense, critical and melodic. Melodic when it can, loud when it should!
