Thank you for visiting Ether Site. Ether Site is a Turin Brakes fansite started in May 2003 by Stefan Meeuws. Despite long pauses between albums for the band and a social life of his own, Stefan never gave up on the website – or the band. Some may call this stupid, he calls it dedication . Besides, the music’s still good and while that’s the case, why stop?
You’re currently viewing the 5th version of this website. The really old (first) version is still available for your viewing pleasure here. Now that brings back memories. All I used was Microsoft Paint and Notepad. See, I used my own code. But when it was time to choose between ‘a life’ and being a ‘codemaster’… I chose a life. Apparently, Gale used to think I was a coding guy. I AM NOT. I REPEAT I AM NOT. I am more of a writer really. So to make everything a bit safer, I started using software. For a while I tried Movable Type. That was OK, but I was sold when I started using WordPress for other sites I made. So now this thing runs on WordPress. Isn’t that exciting? No? Oh, okay…
I hope this all works for you. If you have questions, feel free to e-mail me (email@example.com). I’d love to hear from you… Or come say Hi! if you see me at one of the gigs! I really like talking to fans. Not just my own, also TB’s . I’ve got to know some great people since I started going to Turin Brakes gigs. I’m usually quite friendly. Any questions? Check out the frequently asked questions.
Thank you for taking the time to read all this. So now on to the legal bits and bops and the credits. I rather love credit lists, so I made one of my own. If you feel your name should be in here, do let me know:

Ether Site is secretly a part of:
Olly Knights & Gale Paridjanian – for being the best darn band around but not going on about it.
Rob Allum, Eddy Myer & Phil Marten – for making it sound as great live as it does on record (and often even better).
Shazia – for making sure I’m not the only nerd at the front.
Evelyn – for posting the news for a while.
Mischa – for pointing out Turin Brakes in the first place.
Pimfandischasjo – May the powers of Otte protect you!
Andy (Cureable Mistakes), Ady, Ed, Maurice, Chris, Rich, Stuart, Sjoerd, Tessa, Emma, Steven, Natalie, Mounira and all other Turin Brakes (and music) fans I met along the way. They make it fun to keep going and validate me beginning with this site in the first place.
Soundtrack available on Source Recordings
(I added this to make it more film like eh!)
No animals were harmed during the making of this website. Unless my hosting provider likes to do that sort of thing, but I hope not.
