People have been asking me about that very last Kitchen of Insanity release...
Pictures On My Sleeve was a single sided 45rmp vinyl single, produced in 1993.

It's a rather poppy sounding track, especially when compared to the songs on
Orpheus Feeling, its predecessor.

As things would turn out, the single would never reach record store racks; for
whatever, unknown reason...

Major website revamp!
Now looking better than ever, it's time to take this place to a higher level...

It's been over a year but I always like to keep my promises!...
This one has been lurking in the closet for some time now:
Prins Kardinaal 18-05-1996 is an excellent quality live recording of a great show.

When the Drunken Maria band website got abandoned by its management, Paul De Borger
was looking for a place to keep it afloat...
There will always be some room left under my virtual wings when it comes to great music!

Drunken Maria, a rock venture featuring Paul on vocals, has by now come to an end...
The site is well worth checking out, though. There's great music to sample & download!

Time warp back to the year 1995...
A project that never met its conclusion, a document as yet unmastered.
It never came to be what it was supposed to be or might have been...
Though never officially given the title, this is the 3rd Kitchen ofInsanity album!

It's the strong pillar needed to carry the weight of the band's history.
