OKTOBER 2011 - AGOG just returned from a one week tour in South Korea and Beijing, China. Here a few impressions of our concert at the very big and stunning Jarasum Festrival near to Seoul, South Korea:


In June 2010 Agog did a 2 weeks tour through China - Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai. We did two concerts at the Shanghai EXPO and couple of concerts in beautiful concert halls, open air, clubs and schools.

Here you can see some pictures from the tour.

Here´s a travel report of Joost Lijbaart in Dutch.

In September 2008 the new CD `Some Frump Punk´ was released at Trytone.
9 brand new compositions by Frank Wingold and Mark Haanstra. Agog sounds more subtile and melodic than ever. Check the CD site.


In the beginning of may 2008 agog played in India. We had concerts in Mumbai (Bombay) in probably the fancies club we ever played in (Blue Frog), in Bangalore and in Goa. It´s such a different world and we loved the people and the country. Great experience!

Spring 2005, agog will start the new project `agog plays radiohead´ with Jozef Dumoulin (piano & rhodes) and Jasper Blom (saxophone & electronics). The quintet will play pieces and parts of the british band Radiohead. Don't expect covers but a lively and very personal approach to the music. In May '05 they will do a try-out tour with this program through the Netherlands. For details check the toudates.
