A concise history of creating, shaping and taming a band in F-sharp
Five years into the second millennium Nils and Olav gave birth to a beautiful baby band. And they loved her very much.
Not being the monogamous type, Nils and Olav found themselves looking for a threesome pretty soon. And being into S&M their choice was a rather understandable one…they needed someone who packed a solid beat.
A glance at the yellow-pages and a phonecall later, the band suddenly had another father.
The new dad on the block was called Dimitri and they loved him very much. But three syllables are a bit hard to remember, so his name quickly changed to Dim.
For a while the baby band flourished. She grew and grew until she became a lovely toddler band. One night, when the band was fast asleep, her fathers came to a startling realization…”We forgot to name her!!!”
So they pulled up a chair, poured a nice whiskey and pondered…and pondered…and fell asleep. When they woke up and the dram began to wear off, they knew…Chey Veck!
Both being from the isle of Europe themselves, and being father to a beautiful toddler band, the name was an obvious one…it just took a little alcohol.
As the band slowly evolved into a teenager, she also became more and more demanding. The lads decided to look for another victim to help them out with raising the band. Fortunately for Nils and Olav, Dim owned a friend called Pepijn. Unfortunately, Dim’s friend Pepijn was a bit preoccupied with another band.
This resulted in a horde of creatures trying out for the happy alliance. At one point the band consisted of seven guys, a mage, a dancing gnome, two taurens (kind of cow), a ventriloquist and a mime.
This did not work out.
So Nils, Olav and Dim destroyed the other band and summoned Pepijn into their midst.
“Hello, my name is Pepijn and I’m looking for a band”
“What is your name?”
“No Pepain, no gegain…right?”
This went on for weeks and weeks and is actually still going on to this day. Because Pepijn decided to stay with the band and become the fourth father…for which he is loved very much.
And the band?
She is now a middle-aged woman with quite a temper; soft as silk and sturdy as stone; acts like she owns the world…and she does; a big player on the fields of prob-rock and a feast for all senses.
She is…Chey Veck!
