De Aardappeleters - two tapes

I have no clue who De Aardappeleters are, well except for a well-known Van Gogh painting of course, as the covers don't clue at all. Two relatively short tapes. One is called 'Escape From Kroller Moller' (which in case you don't know is a museum in which they have some Van Gogh paintings) and the other is 'Split Person'. No indication for a label. Lyrics are in Dutch and the music rock, pop, jazz like but all a bit more experimental of course.

Not for sale
