Claw Boys Claw

Guitar band from Amsterdam fronted by charismatic singer Peter te Bos that is influenced by garage punk of bands like Gun Club and the Stooges. Gradually, the band's musical style develops into the direction of melodic swamp rock. (

Uncertain, most likely Saturday, 12 October 1985

Line up
Peter te Bos – vocals; John Cameron – guitar; Bobbie Rossini – bass; Marius Schrader – drums

Set list

It's unknown whether any audio recordings exist.

Other info
Claw Boys Claw played a short warm up set for "surprise act" the Legendary Stardust Cowboy. It is likely to have been on Saturday, because Claw Boys Claw could have been there to see their mates (and ex-drummer) Fatal Flowers and L'Attentat. And more importantly: the Ledge was accompanied by members of Fur Bible, who also played the Saturday.
- edit - The clip above shows CBC backing the Ledge and not just playing a warm-up set?

Claw Boys Claw had previously played Pandora's 84, with a line up including Allard Jolles who played Pandora's 85 as singer/guitarist for L'Attentat.

Years later, Fatal Flowers' bass player Geert de Groot ended up in Claw Boys Claw (1991 - 1999).
