I saw the video of In the Dutch Mountains on the now cancelled German chart show Formel 1. I was listening to a different style of music then, but I remembered the title, and early in 1990 I saw a tape of the Dutch Mountains album in our local library. The cover was nice, I knew they were from Holland, I knew the video and so I took it home and listened to it.
I instantly liked lots of the tunes on that album, especially songs like Mountain Jan, Panorama Man and In a Play. The latter was an English song by a Dutch group with a German phrase in it, very unusual, but good. In May 1990 I went on a day trip to Holland and took home the Urk double live CD. In the next two weeks I played nothing else but Urk.
Later I bought Bahnhof and Omsk, and then worked my way through the list of available Nits CDs. Next I got GND and Tent, the latter being very different from Urk, but still good. Things became difficult then, because I was told the other earlier albums were not available in Germany. Finally I got them all, hunting in Swiss record stores.
Today I have all albums on CD, several live performances on video and audio tape, visited several concerts and actually met the band. Now I try to keep up with the latest releases, hunt for CD singles and enhance the Nits Pages on the WWW.
