Album Notes
Working In Los Alamos was released in 1982. It was the first mini-album by The Dutch, before "This Is Welfare" and "Under The Surface", the two albums released by Epic. It is a mixture of studio and live recordings. The album is re-released after being wonderfully re-mastered by Wout de Kruif, with two bonus tracks from the same period added to the original five songs.

Studio recorded songs
Nous Sommes Tres Petits was produced by Shell Schellekens at Soundpush Studio, Blaricum, the Netherlands in November 1981.
Working In Los Alamos part 1, Working In Los Alamos part 2 and bonus track Codified Minds were produced by the wonderful Ad Le Comte (†) at Vara's Studio 2, Hilversum, the Netherlands, May 1982.

Live recorded songs
New Words, Might Is Always Right and bonus track Probation were recorded live for Dutch radio broadcasting (Hilversum 3) by Dick Luchtenburg in Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands, June 1982.

The cover art was made by Toon Michiels †. The photo was taken during the famous Solvay conference in 1927.

The lyrics of Working In Los Alamos part 1 and 2 are about the Manhattan Project, during which scientists developed the technology that created the atom bomb that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the Second Worldwar.

The Dutch are Hans Croon (vocal, guitars), Bert Croon (keyboards, vocals), Jan de Kruif (bass guitar) and Klaas Jonkmans (drums).

This back catalogue album is re-released digitally as part of the resurrection of The Dutch, after a lot of hard work by producer Wout de Kruif. We hope you enjoy it and if you do, drop us a line on Facebook (thedutchband), Twitter (@thedutch6) or what have you. More information on
