Taymir played the support slot for Di-Rect on the autumn tour that ended in De Boerderij in Zoetermeer. The venue was considerably filled considering that Di-Rect was not to start for over an hour. Whether most people already there knew what they were in for, is a question that goes unanswered. Most were clearly not familiar with the songs of 'Phosphene'. Taymir's impact was that most started to listen, respond and applaud. That's more than many new band can claim in a support slot.
I can't stop thinking that if 'Aaah' had been released in 1965 it would have been a sure top 10 hit, perhaps higher. Setting Taymir off on a year, perhaps decade, long career. I also have a vision that my son will go and see Taymir 30 years from now with his kids. A band this good ought to have a future like this. From my wheel chair I can then point to this huge rack with antiquated media and ask: "Will you hand me that cd, son" and then proudly show my grandkid a signed copy of 'Phosphene'.
Taymir will be playing in your neighbourhood someday soon in 2014. You better not miss this new sensation from The Hague.
You can listen to 'Aaah' live at 3FM here.
