Hi Mr. Big

Some sad news as I am not sure how long it will be until I will be
able to be on the net again. I'm going to move house here in Malaysia
and it's unclear how long it's going to be before I will have a new
connection (they say somewhere next year, which can be January or
December) as this house is as the company says, new, it's 5 years old.

Thus here is my little post for your blog, all I have from the great
garage/blues/rock (and later more psychedelic orientated Dutch band Q
65. They're somewhat a legend in Holland and have a cult staus in
Europe and the USA amongst the 60's lovers. Most welknown are The Life
I Live and You're The Victor but their albums are of great quality

The band originate from Den Haag (The Hague) which in the mid 60's
generated a whole bunch of great beat groups including for example the
Golden Earrings (later become the Golden Earring). Follwing the
example of the British blues boom they modeled their music to electric
blues from Muddy Waters, BB King etc and the British bands the Rolling
Stones, the Animals, Them, Pretty Things, The Kinks etc.

You're The Victor and The Life I live were released in 1966 and peaked
at #11 and #5 in the Dutch top 40. The first album Revolution was all
straight forward blues including a version of Sonny boy Williamson's
"Bring It Home" of almost 14 minutes. Kjoe (Dutch pronunciation) was
an unstoppable force in 1966 but after 1968 it was all over.

In 1970 a more psychedelic orientated Kjoe released Afghanistan, not
bad but ... compared to Bring It Home it was disappointing. However,
listening to Afghanistan right now, it was a great record and a record
made with guts. But the days of Q65 were numbered. Members of the band
would appear in several other bands.

Member of the first hour Frank Nuyens would appear in the Red White &
Blue Band with Harry Muskee and Eelso Gelling (Cuby & the Blizzards)
and, amongst others, the Freelance Band (hard tpo find lp's... Rough
'n Tough and Midnight Power House.

Peter Vink and drummer Beer Klaasse would form Finch (prog rock) and
other members would on and off be found on lp's of Golden Earring,
Livin' Blues and other Dutch bands.

Obviously the is some overlap but I think it's worth to get all the
cd's here. But if you have to start somewhere, get either Revolution
of the Singles Collection. All Q65 cd's included artwork.
