The Dutch Courage is a noise semi-improvisational duo brought together by the communal passion for ravaging garden sheds and cellars in a search for anything that would produce some kind of perceptible sound. Miss-working keyboards, filtered through home-made electronic combination of stomp boxes, usually modified to fit a specific purpose, and analogue echo-delay units provide a dense sonic texture, and an almost impalpable harmonic architecture, for extremely dilated and aerial quasi-acoustic guitar lines. Enriched, occasionally by the use of microphones placed in the rehearsal room to capture the atmosphere, intermittingly giving sign of their presence in the form of low tones murmuring or pitch screaming feedbacks, the band builds up a dark, cold, melancholic flux, often evocative, and reminding distant lullabies heard one hundred meters under water, in the middle on the ice-encrusted landplane, or on the top of sandy dunes in a desolated land. Collected Wreckages, as the title suggests, is a careful assortment from the recordings several rehearsing sessions. It has been digitalized and mastered in its final form in December 2014 at MafarKa BoX. The EP comes in a xerography printed envelopes, heavy cardboard inserts enriched by short script associated to each wrecking episode, and acetate sleeves . Released by Under My Bed (UMB#028.mkII) on the 1st of March 2014. Limited Edition: 25 Copies.


released January 3, 2014

These tracks were recorded sometimes between December 1998
and March 1999 in our rehearsal room, set-up in Lorenzo's basement.
The technical details are so far that they have vanished at the bottom of our brains. However, basically this are direct ambient takes, fed straight from a conventional 4 channels mixer to a JVC stereo cassette recording unit. Tapes were Ferric type.
Digitalised and mastered, simultaneously, using analogue an compressor and a parametric equaliser, connected in series, at MafarKa Box by My Dear Killer in May 2013.
