Dutch native Jaap Blonk does whatever the hell he wants, which for Jaap Blonk usually involves a microphone, plenty of effects run through said microphone, and Blonk himself blurting, burping, blorking, hissing, burbling, caterwauling, ranting, and exhorting through said microphone and effects. Sometimes he uses an electronic keyboard. Sometimes intelligible words emerge, but don’t count on it. People who want music to sound like music usually sounds probably won’t get it (years ago, Blonk got booed off the stage, if not worse, opening for the Stranglers), but I encourage people to stretch their horizons and honor a fellow who’s spent his life chiseling out his own niche.
