Musical perfomances

Waterlelyck ‘Lyckle de Jong, aka Waterlelyck, is a peculiar individual, and we mean nothing but the very best in saying that. It’s a wonderful thing, which translates to an unrivaled sound of keyboard pop – bizarre and pure as driven snow. With two songs out on SoundCloud, we’re hanging onto hearsay of an EP in the near future on Purple Noise Record Club. We reached out to get some answers but as he’d left his home base of The Hague and changed scenery entirely, we pried into the trivialities of his time off.  - Subbacultcha Melle de Boer With his bands John Dear Mowing Club and Smutfish, Melle played at festivals such as Popkomm and SXSW in Austin TX, Reeperbahn festival and toured with Daniel Johnston through Europe. 2007 Tour Daniel Johnston Netherlands and Belgium with Smutfish 2008 Tour Daniel Johnston Europe with John Dear Mowing Club (2008-Nov-1 Germany – Hamburg – Übel & Gefährlich) 2011 Tour Daniel Johnston Scandinavia with Smutfish
Right now Melle is touring with his drawings beamed on stage. The drawings depict the songs. The combination is unique and enables the possibility to experience the songs on a new level. (Melle and Daniel recording ‘Devils’)
