Mr Albert Show

Biography

The rock group Mr Albert Show from Eindhoven was formed in 1969 by Bertus Borgers (saxophone, flute and vocals), Roeland Boogaart (on drums), Tom Fautubun (on bass guitar), guitarist Eric Lintermans, Bonki Bongaerts (organ) and Inez (vocals). It was a merging of two local bands: Dirty Underwear and Mozes Blues Example. The band was named after a roadie. In 1970 their first single, Wild Sensation / King of galaxy is released. The vocals on this track are by Floortje Klomp who joined the band that year, because Inez left. This is followed by their self titled debut album. The sound of this album is a sort of jazzy progressive music with the focus on the saxophone and the organ.

A year later they release a second album, Warm Motor. By this time singer Floortje Klomp had left the band. To promote this album, the non-album track Show me your tongue is released as a second single. In 1973 Bonki Bongaerts leaves the band, and this means the end the Mr Albert Show. Bertus Borgers starts a new band Sweet d'Buster, together with Robert Jan Stips of Supersister and is very active as a studio musician.
