About Holland
Two years ago Mark Lotterman recorded his 5th album ‘Holland’.

Inspired by the heartfelt themes of his lyrics and power of the songs on this record we decided to release this one in a different way. On January 2016 we published the website albumholland.com.
We asked artists, photographers, designers, illustrators, writers and scientists to pick one of the songs off the album and react to it. Over a 120 people did. Everything that’s been made has been archived on the website and now in the form of this 272 page book, containing a CD with the full album.

EGO by Tommy Moustache is out now.

Together with the band I developed a concept around the album title ‘EGO’ which was all about branding. Within the designs for this album the point was to create this feeling of a ‘super-brand’. Like Nike has its slogan ‘Just Do It’, Tommys punchline is ‘Be Like Us’. And let’s be honest: don’t you want to be…?

To see how far we could take the concept of branding we started ordering all the merch we could think of, to the point it felt almost sickening. We wanted the crowd to scratch their heads and go: “Are these guys for real…?”. I think we’ve proven we are. I think more people should be like us.

Hollandse Kost is an annual music festival started by the people of Rotown, Rotterdam. The program consists of Dutch and Belgian alternative music groups with one thing in common: they sing in Dutch.

The images on the posters combine objects with a strong link to the alternative music scene with typical Dutch things, such as ice skating, Gouda cheese or ‘stroopwafels‘.

This year the festival also took place in Eindhoven in collaboration with local music venue De Effenaar.

Tommy Moustache is a schizophrenic, explosive zappjazz-quartet from Rotterdam.
But who is this mysterious figure the band based it’s name on? It is said that Tommy Moustache was there during the great fire of London in 1666. He also had a hand in Franz Reichelt’s flight/fall from the Eiffel tower. These are just some of the stories surrounding Moustache. Man or myth? Who knows.. Who cares. He inspired some awesome jazz musicians to record a fantastic album.
