about

1985.Down and out in Amsterdam, living in a squat a few blocks from the station…a romantic situation, a romantic year…
"Eyes China Doll" was essentially EK's second solo album but also features massive input from Hero Wouters whose cupboard of curiosities ,ingenious insight into the mechanics of music and all-round good vibrations turn up EVERYWHERE on this record.
"Eyes" was recorded in Hero's 8-track studio , and memories of these sessions bring a huge grin to EK's face almost 30 years on.Basically it was joyous, unending fun.Sometimes the singer and Hero would challenge each other to see who could come up with the most bizarre idea…..and these duels could result in the most exotic voyages, "Hotel Blanc" for instance.
An album with a smile on it's face despite the sadness of some of the songs.
A big thank you to Marylou who came to almost every session, and to Her's wife Neel who also played a part.
Last but not least, a huge thank you to Steve Stapleton for his marvellous cover drawing.
