When Love Is In Your Eyes

Since 1994 the Rotterdam-based post-punk/electro-acoustic/noise band Cradle FC (formerly known as Cradle) played many, many shows throughout Holland, England, Germany, Belgium and France. Cradle FC’s sound has been influenced by bands like Joy Division, Swans and Velvet Underground.

Cradle FC won a few low profile-contests and supported bands like Sixteen Horsepower (US), Calvin Party (UK), Avacate (UK), KIN (UK), Mr. Heart (UK), Umphf (UK), Bobbie Peru (UK/US), Feeding Fingers (US), Johan (NL), Suburbs (NL) and many more.

Several Dutch and English radio sessions were aired and the band played numerous acoustic sets as well. The band released a number of live/studio tapes and cd’s and some tracks appeared on three compilation-cd’s released by the independent label Inner City Grit Records (Bristol, UK).

Cradle FC’s typical approach of sound and performance is basic, raw and intense.
