The Nits are a Dutch art-pop-rock group, founded in 1974 in Amsterdam. Their musical style has varied over the years, as has their line-up, but the core members are lead singer and lyricist Henk Hofstede, Robert-Jan Stips on keyboards (worked with Supersister, Gruppo Sportivo, The Golden Earring) and Rob Kloet on drums.

Few bands can match their stamina: how many other bands can claim to be reinventing themselves after 30 years and 20 albums? The Nits specialize in making their latest album sound as little like the last as possible. This has simultaneously guaranteed them a stable degree of success across continental Europe, where fans appreciate their integrity and commitment to playing intimate venues. Nits produced hits like "Nescio", "In The Dutch Mountains", and "J.O.S. Days".

In 1989, Dutch art-rockers The Nits released a live album called Urk, recorded live in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Moscow (but not in Dutch fisher-town Urk). It became the band's greatest commercial album-success, eventually reaching platinum status.

Featured on this album are the band's biggest hits like "In The Dutch Mountains", "J.O.S. Days" and "Nescio". Also included are many album tracks, sometimes thoroughly re-arranged for their live renditions, thus showcasing their strong live reputation.

The band is touring Europe during 2017 and 2018. Due to this occasion Music On Vinyl reissues, 3 of their best albums on limited edition coloured vinyl!
