Well, the cat’s out of the bag. When singer/songwriter Broeder Dieleman found this little record from 1979 at a rummage sale (in the Dutch province Zeeland!) and passed it our way, we knew we were busted. So we might as well let you hear where we stole the inspiration for our album Lost in Ponoka. Enjoy!
(Actually, we had no idea this existed, but cool right?)
Cool, a review of Lost in Ponoka (the album) in the one and only Ponoka News!
‘The familiar, relatable, nostalgia-inducing album will catch people in a time-loop, and there is no best song to this album as each is just as enjoyable as the next.’

A nice review in national newspaper Het Parool: ‘The stories are fine (written in a kind of dirty realism), the photos are lovely and more than mere illustrations, and the music, let’s call it americana, is beautiful.’
You can read the article here (in Dutch):
