The third EP of Dr. Zilch will be their last one, because the members of the band decided to stop.
Time to renew, they say on their web site; time to start other things. It might be the reason they titled it The Next Level.
Their last performance in public was a few months ago at Jazz in Duketown, a large music event in Den Bosch, one of the major cities in the south of the Netherlands.
They label themselves a group of young, pigheaded, ambitious musicians, who make the music they like, inspired by jazz, rock and funk as played by great stars like Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Frank Zappa.
They call their music: Grooving Funky Jazznoised Freakrock.
The four members of the band are Paul Funke ( bass guitar), Jeroen Kant ( guitar), IJsbrand van 't Zand ( tenor saxophone) and Yori Olijslagers ( drums ). They decided to go their's own way and this demo EP, recorded October 2005, will be their final ones.
You can have an idea of their sound while listening to part of Conquerd Territory

Of course we're anxious to learn more about the plans of these four boys, not only because they are young and ambitious, but also because Michiel S., here playing under his nickname IJsbrand van 't Zand happens to be my little nephew ( 6 feet high ).
We'll keep in touch !
