Tom at Nekka Nacht

Tom Barman will be on stage during the yearly Nekka Nacht-festival in Antwerp on April 30th. The festival celebrates music in Dutch and is this year focusing on Dutch rockband The Scene.

Since Tom recorded a new version of the song Rigoreus with the band a couple of years ago, it’s not really a surprise that he will be joining the event.

Maria Schneider has died

Maria Schneider has died at the age of 58. Maria Schneider is best known for her performance in Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1972 drama Last Tango in Paris – a role that came to both define and destroy her acting career. And we all know here because of the song The Vanishing Of Maria Schneider on Vantage Point ofcourse.



Tom about his chronic need for self-imposed deadlines

There’s a great article about Tom in De Standaard today. Tom is talking about his father and the fact his father died when he was only 17. He says he has been living with deadlines since he was young.

His father was 63 when Tom was born and Tom was always thinking when I’m then my father will be 73, etcetera. He’s also always planning things like ‘I want to make my first movie before my 30th anniversary’, etcetera. He wrote a song about this continously counting for Keep You Close: the song is called Numbers.

As you probably know already the song Right As Rain is about the death of Tom’s father. He sings  His only vice was that he died while I did a little dance. And that’s how it really happenend.
