Twisting words and music Twisting words and music
May 26th, 2011

The crowd prefers to dawdle outside on this unseasonably warm May evening, rather than come in and listen to the billed entertainment. This doesn’t dint the enthusiasm of Eindhoven band, Ape Not Mice, hired for corporate gig, Made. After the first set Mark Vrolings (31), drummer, looms so very tall over me, yet speaks softly and attentively about the band he started in 2008. The pretty lead singer, Diede Claesen (20), sweetly barges in on the rushed interview and says to him: “Just checking up on you! I want to hear your English!” she laughs teasingly. Language is a cornerstone for this group, which I’m about to find out. But first, the music.
