__notoc__Bettie Serveert are a Dutch indie-rock band. Their name translates to "Bettie Serves," and is taken from a Dutch television program, hosted by Dutch tennis player Betty Stöve, who made it to the Wimbledon Ladies singles final in 1977.

Comprised of Carol van Dyk (vocals and guitar), Peter Visser (guitar), Herman Bunskoeke (bass) and Berend Dubbe (drums), they originally formed in 1986 but split up after only one gig. They reformed in 1990 and released their debut album, "Palomine", in 1992. This met with low-key critical acclaim in the alternative music press.

Three years later, they followed up with "Lamprey", an album that saw them gain more praising reviews and aided them in bagging tour slots alongside the likes of Belly, Dinosaur Jr, Buffalo Tom, Superchunk, Come and Jeff Buckley.

After releasing the full-length album "Dust Bunnies" and the Velvet Underground cover album "Venus In Furs", Dubbe decided to leave due to artistic differences. He went on to form his own band, Bauer.

Various drummers (among which Reinier Veldman, who played drums in the Bettie Serveert proto-band De Artsen) took the place of Dubbe on the album that followed ("Private Suit"), later followed by Stoffel Verlackt, Jeroen Blankert and Gino Geudens who played drums on "Log 22" and "Attagirl". Bettie Serveert continues to tour extensively through Western Europe, Canada and the United States.

Their cover of the Bright Eyes track "Lover I Don't Have to Love" was featured in episode 18 of season 3 of the FOX show "The OC". Palomine's title track can be heard playing in the background during episode 4 of "My So-Called Life".
