Description:

Beequeen happened as a result of a Legendary Pink Dots' intervention. In the Winter of 1988 Freek Kinkelaar was asked by Pink Dots-singer Edward Kaspel if he would be interested in doing the solo support act to the LPD performance in Utrecht on 13 January 1989. Freek got together with industrial veteran Frans de Waard whom he had met a couple of years previously. The two had already performed live together with members of THU 20 in November 1988, when they did an improvised performance for radio at the 0 42 club in Nijmegen. They had also worked together for several years at radio station RATAPLAN (the oldest still active Dutch illegal radio station), where they fronted a show called ART AND NOISE concentrating on experimental and avant-garde music. For the Utrecht performance they decided upon the 'band name' Beequeen. The name refers to the work of German conceptual artist Joseph Beuys whose works they both admired and who worked a lot with the concept of the 'Bienenk"nigin' (the Beequeen).
