Excerpt of the video made for the song, “Indie Girl” (words & music by Steve Conte) performed by Steve Conte & The Crazy Truth. This performance comes from the film DE BLOEDKORALEN EN HET LAM by Jacoba Cornelisse. The full video was completed years ago but the final edit was lost in a computer crash, this sample is all that exists of it now. Filmed at Eric’s Bar in Goes, The Netherlands. Enjoy!
