Today San Francisco has the world's biggest bicycle festival, organised with the SF Critical Mass movement and pleasantrevolution.net with cellist Joe Chang, who biked all over Europe in the year that Ilene was working in California.
Bicycles are a wayback experience to the 'white bicycles' idea of the Dutch Provo movement but also a durable energy vehicle, no waste of fossil fuel, and thus rightwing parties like the current dutch government don't like it. It seems all over the world the alternative and artist scenes are taking to the bicycle. We, as Freewheelers, of course saw this coming a Long Long time ago....
safe biking! And good music!

Who does not like the sound of a cello, played by a trained cellist?
One of the first bands to put this into the bluesrock genre, the Freewheelers (sometimes spelled with 'de' since an old band used the same name) have played all over Europe and are now working on new material for their American tour. Always out of money, since they are not backed by a label and do everything independent, the recordings of this band are a bit on the lo-fi side. They are more a live band, however both Ilene Spain and Bas Vossen have lots of studio experience, being paid studio musicians for years.
Check out their songs online, their home base is http://www.myspace.com/defreewheelers
Better is to hear them perform live. Put your email on the list by sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org as he is setting up a system to inform our fans. We'll be touring the USA from October, 22 until October next year. From then on we'll be touring Europe. Australia and Asia are also on the list, as we have fans there too. And we do not forget our fans: we'll organise a festival in the middle of every tour!
Be free. Have Wheels!

The online webshop still is online, and works perfect. Thanks to all of you who ordered our cd's.
We are using the incoming money to produce a new and better sounding cd. Lo Siento por los que solo lea en espanol. Los traduciones no somos possible ahora.

For what, if I may ask. For the right of having cops around? For the people we see on golf courts? For stupid traffic measures? Or for 'integration'?
I would like it if the government would do something for live music, for the poor musicians that get kicked out of their income because of 'dee-jays' and karaoke'music'.
Buy our cd's and you'll hear songs about this, in a happy style!
