Comic artist Barbara Stok (1970) is a true musiclover: "There is
a lot of music I like to listen to at the moment, but the record I play
the most is "Mess of Fire" by the Hot Pockets from Groningen.
The copy I have is a longplayer, a real record, no CD. I found out I prefer
to play records, because you listen to them for real. You sit down, look
at the sleeve and after a whil turn the record over. The Hot Pockets play
rock 'n roll, tough music, that's what I like. I don't like it if music
makes me sad, I rather listen to something that gives me energy."
Barbara think it's important to pay attention to bands from Groningen:
"We've got a lot of good bands, that's something we can be proud
of. One of the Hot Pockets is a Canadian, he comes over to the Netherlands
when he's got some spare time, just to play music. That says something
about the level of the musicians from Groningen!"
