Rival between Rotterdam and Amsterdam? Such was not the case.
Rotterdam and Amsterdam were rivals and they still are. Football hooligans are feeding this hostility. There was always these clashes between the 2 biggest towns of The Netherlands.
I was a football hooligan from Amsterdam, supporting AFC Ajax Amsterdam just in the period this record was made. In the years 88, 89, 90, 91 I was going to illegal houseparty's. So on friday and saterdays raving and on sunday to Ajax.
In the beginning days (88-90) there were few house party's. Most of them being in Amsterdam. I remember that there were big groups of Hooligans going to Amsterdam for these raves. And we were with a big group. Was there any fighting? No because we wanted to rave. There was no hostility between the 2 sides on these raveparty's.
The fighting was on sunday at the football games.
Remember this was all before gabber/hardcore existed. So this was all pre gabber. We weren't bald (long hair instead) but we were wearing trainingssuits.
So music did put people together like house music is and was intended. The hostility was introduced again with records like this. Not that it is wrong because it was going to happen anyway at a certain time. So yes there was and is rivival between Rotterdam and Amsterdam house music but before records like this such was not the case.

First release on Rotterdam Records. The figure you see on the sleeve was the logo of Parkzicht (the famous club in Rotterdam) pissing on Amsterdam. It represents the 'Euromast' witch is a high tower in Rotterdam. As said before the record itself stands for the rival between the scene in Amsterdam and the scene in Rotterdam. DJ Murderhouse was a DJ and Producer in Amsterdam (Track A2 F..k DJ Murderhouse).
3 years after this record DJ Murderhouse was responseble for Hakkûhbar with their hit 'gabbertje' (number one in the top 40 of the Netherlands). This record (witch made fun of all gabbers) destroyed the underground gabberscene.
'Amsterdam waar lech dat dan?' has been repressed in 2003. The original pressing has a yellow label with different drawings and text on it. The repress has a black label with text on it.

Perfect foot stomping bouncey record. And so it was the first record from the then nascient gabba scene, there were others but no one took the cake like this, complete with rude cover work.
I later sold my copy for some good cash. now I wish I had it again.
funny stuff.

In the beginning of gabber there was (and sometimes there still is)rivival between Rotterdam and Amsterdam house music. This record was the answer to Amsterdam, that Rotterdam gabber was harder and still alive.
I Remember when this record came out. I waited 1 hour at the recordstore to open, to get a copy of this record.
