Check out this amazing and funny video by Queenzoners Pim and Niek (Pim Derks and FriedChicken) on YouTube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjMOQ0nd6Zo

They even have a pressed CD with an extended mix and all that jazz.

Nice job guys. Of course I can't understand it but it's very well-made.

Totally destroys my mental image of Pim being a bitter old Asian woman though.

That sounds like our Marial/vy/-B on the female vocals.

It's all tongue in cheek ofcourse ;)

Translation (the ill rhymez don't flow anymore when translated though):

HEROES OF THE HOOD
------------------

Yo, this is for all the homies in the hood y'all
listen well, then you know how it goes...

Yo, we are Pim & Niek
and we rule these streets
your bullshit doesn't matter
you know - hating is leaving!

True heroes of the hood,
are we - with heart and blood
I may not, but I must
because who does good will meet good!

Pim & Niek - so brilliaaaant
Pim & Niek - such heroes

Yo, this is Pim
not a [ thing made up in your mind ]
but very smart!

Niek is my companion
heroes of the hood
together on this phat record!

Yo this is Niek
so brilliant and also unique
together with Pim, very chique.

Rap & roer, during our tour
hello gutentag and also bonjour!

Pim & Niek - so brilliaaaant
Pim & Niek - such heroes

Leaders of the land,
confusing your mind
ruling with - the iron fist!

No bullshit, just doing it
that's what we're all about
going where no-one's gone before
to go loosch once more!
Incredibly hard, no boundaries
because we don't know any!
C'mon and shout along
to this brilliant song!

Pim & Niek - so brilliaaaant
Pim & Niek - such heroes

Heroes of the hood,
telling you what it's all about
yo - on this phat record
and this is the result
without a doubt
there is not a single copy
just jealousy - and sympathy


Yo, we are Pim & Niek
and we rule these streets
your bullshit doesn't matter
you know - hating is leaving!
----

We've still got some copies left of the initial 50 cd's made. I think at last count we had 7 left. Barbara ordered one, so that's 6 left now. Order yours now, or you will regret it!

The CD includes 4 mixes of the track + the lyrics in the booklet + the video in hi-res on the disk itself. All of that for just € 7,50!

And we did The Pim & Niek Rhapsody


And we're working on a rock opera about 2 losers who meet each other and form the most genial duo of all time.


So yeah, it's about us.

Rather over-priced for a self-released single though...

I don't think it is.

1,50 euros for an mp3. Thats overpriced!
Or a 40 year old cd still being sold for 25 euro's (Beatles for example).


We did everything ourself in the course of 6 months, it has 4 tracks, a videoclip on the cd, a 8 page booklet, all full colour. And the cd looks great as well.


Imagine if we had to hire a photographer, a cover art designer, a cameraman, a director and so on. It would've been much expensive. But unfortunatly getting cds pressed is very expensive. So when we ask 7,50 + postal costs we don't make any profit in the end

Besides. Who's talking.

It's not a live performance. Just lipsynching.
