The Barstool Philosophers biography
Dutch band THE BARSTOOL PHILOSOPHERS was formed by long time friends Ivo Poelman (guitar) and Martin Kuipers (drums) back in 1997, albeit nameless in the initial phase. Mark Portier (bass) and René Kroon (keyboards) hooked up with them shortly after, and in 2002 the band was completed when Leon Brouwer (vocals) joined in 2002.

Portier left the band in 2004 in a case of opportunity knocks though, but his replacement Bas Hoebink (bass) turned out to be a good one, and with that minor line-up alteration dealt with the band started developing their style in earnest.

Five years down the line and The Barstoool Philosophers make their debut as recording artists with the CD Sparrows. The album gets plenty of good reviews, and they are amongst the lucky few who got to experience sales good enough to warrant a second pressing, which isn't too common an experience in this day and age. As of September 2010 The Barstool Philosophers are planning their follow-up album, with tentatively set for release sometime in 2011.

Review by maryes

3 stars I think, when anybody to hear this first CD "Sparrow" of the Dutch band BARSTOOL PHILOSOPHERS, will feel a strong influence of QUEENSRYCHE. Not only for some characteristics of the arrangements but, above all, due to incredible similarity of vocal timbre between Léon Brouwer and Geoff Tate. However the similarity doesn't help a lot to do of this disk a work that I can consider brilliant ! Actually, in spite of considering very good most of the musical themes of the disk, I thought it missed the musicians some daring, mainly in what e concerns to take a risk some solo , be of guitar or keyboard (and when they make, they don't get to escape of the obvious) what does with the disk sounds (in most of Tracks) as a albun solo of his vocalist. I believe that it didn't go that fact the disk could receive a better note than the 3 stars!!!
