fan mail

The Monkey Power Trio isn’t the kind of band that attracts fans easily. It happens, on occasion, but it’s not common. About once a year or so we get a very nice letter from somewhere in the world, from someone who has stumbled across our music. This letter came in a few days ago from the Netherlands.

My name is Barthold and I live in the Netherlands in a town called Groningen. I like your songs, I’ve downloaded them all in October last year, and I’ve been listening to those beautiful songs ever since.

Now I want to purchase your complete discography on vinyl, so I can listen everywhere and always to these songs, and treasure them.

Please can you help me dear Monkey Power Trio?

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Barthold Boksem

I know it’s probably just an reader pulling my leg, but I’d like to think that Barthold Boksem is real. I’d like to think that somewhere in the Netherlands there is a middle-aged man dancing around in his parents’ basement to our song, Planet of the Apes is Real. That thought makes me happy, the thought that these silly little things we do can be found by people who genuinely love them. The odds against it are enormous, but yet it keeps happening.

    Well, guess what? Here it is a few years later and we just got an order. Barthold Boksem, I guess, really did want everything we’ve ever put out.
