The Codex Portabili is a very strict set of rules that allows your beloved idols – de portables – to cope with each others annoying behaviour and bad habits. "Goede afspraken maken goede vrienden" they say… And the afspraak that saved the band from several possible splits reads a follows: ‘He who does not attend one of de portables’ weekly rehearsals, shall be punished by lyrical sarcasm’.
Bert managed to book himself a skiing trip (in the Vogezen of all places) at exactly the same days that we were given studio time in Klara’s famous Studio Toots. That’s where we recorded "Op visite bij Tante Klara". Bert was there the first day. His absence for the rest of the session resulted in this folky Flemish sing-along-song "Vogezen". Don’t you ever try this again, Bert!

I saw this over at blip.tv.  I don’t know why exactly but I find this piece to be charming.

GREAT! Will there be an MP3 of this song too?

@ chris: Thanks! Unfortunately for Bert, the lyrics are less charming though ;-
@ Jan: I’ll see if I can dig up the original recording…
