FIRST SINGLE TIELMAN BROTHERS BACK ON 7 INCH VINYL
In 2008 the Dutch pop Music celebrated its 50th anniversary. That year it was exactly half a century ago that the first Dutch rock & roll single saw the light of day: Rock Little Baby Of Mine by the Tielman Brothers, with You're Still The One on the B-side. A record you’d have to get a second mortgage for, if you are one of the lucky few to come across a copy on a collector’s market. Soon this nuisance will be over. Because on the june 17, 2010 the illustrious debut will be re-issued on 7” vinyl. The new release will look exactly (label) like the original, but it will sound a hell of a lot better!
Stimulated by a very musical father, the Tielman Brothers started their career in the Javanese city of Surabaya, in 1945. The four brothers originally operated under the name The Timor Rhythm Brothers (the family was originally from the island of Timor), mostly for Dutch soldiers, but also in the palaces of the Indonesian President Sukarno. Because their father Herman found that children had more future in the Netherlands than in the new State of Indonesia, the Tielman family emigrated to the Netherlands in 1957 and settled in Breda. They definitely did not leave behind their musical talents. As soon as they were in Holland, they frequently performed at Indonesian parties. First as the The Timor Rhythm Brothers. But soon they changed their name to The Four Tielman Brothers.
In 1958 they got the chance to shine in the 'Hawaiian Village' of the World Expo '58 in Brussels. The band were scheduled to play for only twenty minutes, but they presented a whirlwind rock & roll show like no one had ever seen before. The boys played guitars behind their heads, with their teeth and feet, or threw them in the air like real acrobats. Twenty minutes were obviously not enough, and in the end the band stayed for six whole months! Ferry and Rene (Nappie) Vlasselaar, owners of a Belgian jukebox company, set themselves up as managers. On their label Fernap they released the first single from the Tielman Brothers: Rock Little Baby of Mine / You 're Still The One. It was the first rock & roll production of a Dutch band. And also the kickoff of an international career, that would last for years and would even bring the band in Israel. The Tielman Brothers recorded several albums, for several labels. But only one could the first. And that was Rock Little Baby Of Mine!
