Sadly, the band has split up

Still, I decided to keep this page alive, so that it can serve as a tribute to the great band that Pique Poque Poetry was. Too bad that many people will now never discover how good they really were...

Still to come

What Do They Sound Like?

Their repertory consists at this moment of both english and dutch songs. The music can be described with the vague term 'alternative rock' or 'soft grunck'. They sound somewhat like bands as Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Live, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, etc but not really. Mostly they just sound like.... Pique Poque Poetry! Why don't you just listen to the following samples??


All samples are low-quality (8 bits, 11kHz) WAV-files and last only 30-40 seconds. You can get an impression quickly but it isn't CD-quality.
The samples are all located on a different server. This server is very often in the air, but not always. So if things don't work out now, try again later. The above songs are just a small selection from the Pique Poque Poetry repertoire. See the discography for a complete listing.
