Katadreuffe was formed in Amsterdam in 2005. The band was named after the main character of a novel by Ferdinand Bordewijk called Character (1938). Not necessarily because the band members liked or loved the book all that much (only one or two have actually read it, none of them own a copy) but simply because it has a nice ring to it (in Dutch, at least). Besides, practically every other band-name is already taken, so what else are you going to call your band, right?
There are four members in Katadreuffe. Ruben Braeken (1984) plays guitar; Maarten Broekhuizen (1982) plays guitar and sings (sort of); Michiel van Overmeire (1982) plays bass, synthesizer and sings; and, Timothy Plevier (1982) plays drums. Almost all members are currently active in one or two other bands as well.
In the summer of 2008, Katadreuffe spent three days at Corno Zwetsloot's Next to Jaap studio in Voorhout recording and mixing their first EP entitled Quel Gargantua!. This session resulted in four songs, which were then mastered by James Plotkin in Hoboken, New Jersey. The physical cd release comes packaged in a nice handmade sleeve that took days - maybe weeks - of work by the members of Katadreuffe. The downloadable version of Quel Gargantua! comes with a pdf-document containing an extensive instruction to help you make your own sleeve for the cd.
