Track Details:

Two hours and counting until takeoff time for the Captain Tinrib Live Show… Jon the Dentist was whipping the crowd up into a frenzy and in amongst the pounding beats and cheering crowd the Tinrib crew would have to make the stage their own. Since The Captain was to be the last live act it was impossible to do a soundcheck, which meant he had to set up his equipment outside the tent earlier in the day. Finally, in a mad rush, each piece of equipment was carefully unplugged, transported up the steps into the smoke-filled darkness, and re-setup. Not an easy task when you’re dodging people appearing from all sides with the assorted fish, banners, lights and backdrops that all go to make the Tinrib Live Show the spectacle that it is. Jon the Dentist spun his final tune and the crowd were most definitely up for it. Captain Tinrib had left his mark on the Amsterdam scene six months earlier and it was obvious that the memory hadn’t faded. The lights went down and the familiar strains of the ‘2001’ theme tune came flooding out of the speakers. From behind the bank of computers, keyboards, and flashing lights emerged a vision of Hawaiian splendour: Captain Tinrib, suntanned and decked out in one of his legendary shirts. He’s The Captain – and he’s got the shirt to prove it. The set eased in with a couple of funky housier numbers. Who was that gorgeous young thing in the slinky black number dusting down the stage to ‘Get Your House In Order’? To keep the Dutch on their toes The Captain sneaked in the new tune ‘Taking Too Much (Dutch)?’ As soon as the stuttering vocals of ‘Get Down’ started making their way in the sound level went up another notch . The dancers were spurred on by the crowd, and Vicky was disco-ing like she’d never disco-ed before. Meanwhile Hubie, dressed as a space trouper, was speeding around the stage atop a unicycle, juggling and bouncing to the beat. As MC Marxman egged on the crowd, The Captain could see that they were ready for more, so he banged in a few extra kick drums and picked up the pace. ‘Acid Pandemonium’ was the result. Out came the Dutch dancers armed with water pistols to cool off the crowd. As the legendary riff of ‘Don’t Stop’, one of the biggest Tinrib tunes to date, filled the tent, the whistles and cheers from the crowd almost drowned out the sound system. The set was reaching its crescendo when the energy of ‘Street Tab’ built up the atmosphere to an almost unbearable level. Then the screaming hoovers of ‘Elvis’ kicked in and a voice was heard saying “I love all his music – he’s a pretty good-looking guy – Elvis Presley”. A mysterious man in velvet and rhinestones struck a pose on stage: the dark glasses disguised his face but there was no mistaking that quiff. It seemed that even the King couldn’t miss the Captain Tinrib Live Show! As the end all too quickly came into view the massive chords of Weirdo’s ‘Curva Peligrosa’ brought the crowd to a state of delirium: there was air punching, hands waving and smiles on each and every face, including The Captain’s. He had pulled it off again – who needs a soundcheck anyway? Everything had come together and Captain Tinrib had given Holland its second dose of Tinrib madness. All that was left to say was a nice big I THANK YOU!
