Goodbye! #openeinde


Yesterday was the last, and maybe the best, show of Lost Bear so far. Chaotic and emotional, the keywords of our 9-year career. We ended our set with former members Tammo and Noel playing along with the very first song we ever rehearsed, (Hope You’re No) Diana. It was a magical, memorable night. Many thanks to Podium Café de Graauwe Hengst for putting this night up and Surface Noise for sharing goodbyes!

In this picture you also see Floyd, who played drums on our first demo and mixed and mastered Monkey Pop and Donkey Shot, Joost, who played keys for several months in 2012, Tammo, Noel, and our great sound guy slash sixth member Arthur. Only Ferdinand, one of the two drummers from 2008 to 2010, was missing this night.

We will upload some video material soon. Now the time has come to weep, lick our wounds, and see if we can make something nice of the chaotic mess of recordings, pictures and memories that is still scattered around on hard disks and cassette tapes. We will continue to work on preserving this archive, and hopefully make a book, or a boxset, or something cool like that.

Stefan, Gino, Casper, Gibson, Arno



Thank you


Thank you for coming to our release show! With the amazing new alternative rock band Howrah, the brilliant addition of magician Chris Bordet, the weird tunes of the GNI Collective (‘dat wil ik hier niet hebben!’) it was a party like we used to party 9 years ago. Thank you for sharing this emotional evening with us. Big smiles to Arthur for the beautiful sound and Ab for the great pictures. Read here what 3voor12/Utrecht thought of it. See you on one of the upcoming -dam shows:

Donkey Shot Release Show


Dear people,

You are all invited to our release show, next Saturday the 14th of October.
This nice get together will take place in De Kromme Haring (The Crooked Herring).

We (Lost Bear) will of course play some nice psychedelic indie rock.

But we have more in stock!

The amazing Howrah is also playing. A new band risen from the ashes of the legendary Zoppo and Space Siren.

But it’s not a party without a magician! The amazing magician Chris Bordet will be performing some fantastic magic tricks for y’all.

And last but surely not least! The guyz from the GNI Collective will be spinning some nice records during the evening.

That sounds like a real party doesn’t it?

For more info check out the Facebook event.
Event Of The Year

We can already say that it will cost 5 euros and that we will open at 20:30 and the fun will start at 21:00.

See you on Saturday!

Rap Song


And then there was music! Listen now to ‘Rap Song’ from our new album Donkey Shot, and be amazed. What did we do this time? Never a dull moment with The Bears. Our twisted version of rap music. Proud. Happy. Excited.

and another, new new, one in the near future!

Wind, Hat, Blown, Wet (official video)


In this crazy world, all we can do is ride the waves of absurdity by laughing and having fun with our friends and loved ones. We really, really enjoy playing this music. Nothing can wipe the smile of our faces. We are enlightened by the Force.

We also had a lot of fun making this new video for Wind, Hat, Blown, Wet, a song of our latest double LP Inside The Dragon. Next month Darth Vader will shine in the new Star Wars movie (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), but we were happy he found some time to share a typical ‘day in the life of’ with us.


Tomorrow (Saturday) we play at Le Mini Who? 5 Years, 17.30-18.00 in ACU, Utrecht. See you there!

Art Rocks. Oh Yes it does!
