Since my guest post over at THE WEIRDEST BAND IN THE WORLD covering an golden oldie videoclip by Harry Merry, I was on the receiving end of critics who where letting me know that Harry Merry was no longer part of the ‘underground’. If you are reading this yourself, Harry: Sorry… And please don’t shoot the messenger.
The stacks of emails came flying in telling me that Harry Merry was by now ‘big’ in the Netherlands. Not as in ‘Big’ the body way, but as in ‘he is on national television, broadcasted to the homes and brains of the people.’
With my hands in shame covering my face in fears for repercussions of the board of ‘underground’ critics, I wanted to steal the article, putting it in a big hole deep under the ground to make at least the post in itself ‘underground’ worthy.
What? Harry Merry has been selling out?! Really?! Kicked out and stripped off from Underground cult status?! It was like that cruise ship approaching the iceberg, Judah betraying Jesus; it was simply the end of the world!
But is it really? Just think about it, search the Netherlands on a world map and you will soon come to the conclusion that the country is extremely tiny. It’s a place that if you are farting a little bit different than the rest, the next morning you will be in the headline of all the major newspapers.
The Dutch media swims around like sharks in the hope to find a new folk hero (or villain) like the legendary rock n roll junkie ‘Herman Brood‘.
He lived a life of rock n roll, art and drugs. To sustain his vices he appeared almost everywhere on television. It was good entertainment to see Herman completely drugged up appearing in cooking shows, reunion shows, talk shows and other television programs.
Did he sell out? Don’t think so, he just enjoyed the attention and probably needed the quick cash for his daily doses of doctor pepper.
I think in the case of Harry Merry, it’s Harry Merry who takes the part of being the doctor pepper for the regular music lover. I mean when you see and hear Harry Merry it is like smoking crack. You know you might lose your brain and teeth, but you will do everything to smoke it anyway. Once you hear and see a bit of Harry Merry, you just need more and more and more.
A smart move by programmers to broadcast Harry Merry on the television, as viewers will be glued with ears and eyes to the screen, waiting for their most needed doses of Harry Merry.
And who can blame them, or Harry Merry for giving what the people need? Trust me, we all need a bit of Harry Merry.. And thanks to Youtube and the global support of his loyal and ever growing fan-base, he is even breaking through on a global scale..
It must be lots of fun for Harry Merry himself too,
meeting all kinds of people..
He performs at the strangest locations and winning prizes along the way..
Conquering the hearts of the young and the old with a charm that is simply irresistible.
One of those special touching moments was when Harry Merry came to perform an emotional version of his big hit ‘Stevie Storm’ at the now legendary The Sina Khani Show!
Here is a videoclip covering this special moment in time:
From one thing comes another, and the visit of Harry Merry to the show above was like something that was written in the stars, between the stars.
Host Sina Khani happened to be a huge fan of Harry Merry and begged Harry if he could honor him by creating a spectacular new ‘Harry Merry’ video clip.
Lucky for all of us; some dreams do come true and with the help of technology we can all enjoy the result all over the entire world!
The video shows us Harry Merry like we had not seen him before.
At home, relaxed with his supportive mother while he himself appears to be on television.
He also goes on the roof with a friend and shows his amazing dancing skills.
It’s an incredible music video that will go down in history, like a deep sea fish!
I hope you enjoy Harry Merry’s newest and hottest audio/visual extravaganza:
now please track Harry Merry down, give him all your money, as you definitely need to hear and see more of him! Even if you might risk losing your teeth! It’s worth it!
Thank you for this auspicious article……
I never have been part of the ‘underground’ since the day I was born,
I prefer to perform my music above the ground.
I am also not a representative or spokesperson for any kind of ‘scene’.
I am a clown…..
Take good care of each other……and yourselves……:D
Thank you Harry Merry for cleaning up the misunderstandings.. 😀
I love your stuff 🙂
