Groep 1850:
Groep 1850 was a Dutch psychedelic rock band. The band was founded in 1964 in The Hague by the name Klits and renamed Groep 1850 in 1966, when their debut single, "Misty Night" / "Look Around", appeared on the tiny Yep label. Though few copies were pressed, it established them as one of The Netherlands most original bands (alongside the Outsiders and Q65) and they soon signed to Philips. More singles ensued, in a highly psychedelic vein, including the "Mother No Head". 

Groep 1850 - Netherlands Single 1967
Their debut album, Agemo's Trip To Mother Earth, appeared in late 1968. In The Netherlands its sleeve had a 3-D image on the cover, and came with a pair of 3-D glasses. A UK release (also on Philips) did not help the band gain a footing outside The Netherlands, and Philips dropped them soon afterwards. Their next album, Paradise Now, appeared on the Dutch Discofoon label in 1969 and was only marginally less acid-influenced than its predecessor.

The band disbanded soon afterwards, but was sporadically active through the 1970s. Especially notable was another single, 1971's "Fire" / "Have You Ever Heard?", which appeared on Polydor.

The Golden Earrings:
Golden Earring is a Dutch rock band, founded in 1961 in The Hague as the Golden Earrings (the 's' was dropped in 1969). They achieved worldwide fame with their international hit songs "Radar Love" in 1973, "Twilight Zone" in 1982, and "When the Lady Smiles" in 1984. During their career they topped the Dutch rock charts more than 40 times; over the years they produced 25 studio albums. Current members of Golden Earring are Barry Hay (vocals, guitar, flute and saxophone, member since 1968), George Kooymans (vocals and guitar, founder of band), Rinus Gerritsen (bass and keyboard, founding member), and Cesar Zuiderwijk (drums and percussion, member since 1970).

The Golden Earrings - Netherlands Single 1966
Golden Earring was formed in 1961 in The Hague by 13-year-old George Kooymans and his 15-year-old neighbour, Rinus Gerritsen. Originally called The Tornados, the name was changed to The Golden Earrings when they discovered that the name The Tornados was already in use by another group. The name The Golden Earrings was taken from a song called Golden Earring performed by the British group The Hunters, whom they served as opening and closing act for. Initially a pop-rock band with Frans Krassenburg on lead vocals, The Golden Earrings had their first chart success with their debut single "Please Go", recorded in 1965. It reached number 9 on the music charts in the Netherlands. While The Fab Four had their 'Fifth Beatle' in George Martin, the Earrings used session pianist Cees Schrama on their records. Dissatisfied with Dutch recording studios, the band's manager and co-discoverer Fred Haayen arranged for the next single to be recorded at the Pye Records studios in London. The record cut at Pye, "That Day," reached number two on the Dutch charts, prevented only from reaching the number one position by The Beatles' "Michelle."

In 1967, Barry Hay joined the band, replacing Krassenburg as frontman for the group. The following year, the band earned their first number one hit in the Netherlands with the song "Dong Dong Diki Digi Dong." In the United States, ground work for entering the US market was being laid by East Coast FM radio Disc Jockey and music critic—Neil Kempfer-Stocker, who is credited as the first radio DJ to champion the band stateside. This single was followed by a successful psychedelic album Eight Miles High, which featured an 18-minute version of the title track, itself a cover of the 1966 hit song by The Byrds. The live version, which could last 45 minutes, was considered by some to be a highlight in their first and second American tours, in the middle of the hippie and flower power era in the same year Woodstock was organised: 1969. The band's American records at this time period were issued by the Perception Records label in New York, and the band's "'Wall of Dolls'" LP and single 'Back Home' performed poorly in the US but became a number 1 hit in their native country The Netherlands.

The Outsiders [Netherlands] - Netherlands Single 1969
The Outsiders:
The Outsiders were a Dutch band from Amsterdam. Their period of greatest popularity in the Netherlands was from 1965–67, but they released records until 1969. In recent years their legacy has extended beyond the Netherlands, and the group is today recognized as a distinctive progenitors of the garage rock genre.

Featuring Wally Tax (vocals), Ronnie Splinter (guitar), Appie Rammers (bass guitar), Tom Krabbendam (guitar), Leendert "Buzz" Busch (drums), and Frank Beek (bass guitar 1968-1969), the band exemplified the "Nederbeat Sound", a raw, Dutch take on rock 'n' roll created in the wake of the 1960s British Invasion. Unlike the many European bands influenced by The Beatles, The Outsiders took their cues from harder-edged British groups like The Pretty Things (who frequently toured the Netherlands) and The Rolling Stones. In November 1965, in 's-Hertogenbosch, The Outsiders opened for Stones' second Dutch concert. Other critics[who?] have cited influences for the Outsiders as wide-ranging as Buddy Holly, Jacques Brel, and Love (band), as well as Eastern European folk influence from Tax's Russian Roma ethnic roots. The Outsiders developed a reputation for a wild and raucous stage act, and were eventually banned from various venues.

The Zipps [Netherlands] - Netherlands Single 1968
The Outsiders released three full-length records, Outsiders and the singles collection Songbook in 1967, and C.Q. in 1968. The latter sold poorly upon release but is now considered a masterpiece of psychedelic garage rock. The band also released thirteen singles, including 1967's "Summer Is Here," which reached the Top Ten on the Dutch charts. Their eponymous debut album, which featured one side of studio recordings and another taken from their live show, also sold well during this period. Unusually for this era, the band never recorded any covers. While several Dutch pop groups of the era — namely Tee Set ("Ma Belle Amie"), the Shocking Blue ("Venus"), and the George Baker Selection ("Little Green Bag") — all had hits in the United States on the Colossus label, resulting in what some music pundits jokingly called the "Dutch Invasion," the Outsiders were unable to join in on this success as their records were never released in the U.S.

Q65 were a Dutch Garage rock/Psychedelic rock/Rhythm and blues group formed in 1965 and categorised in the Netherlands as being part of the Nederbeat genre.

Q65 was formed in early 1965 when guitarists Joop Roelofs and Frank Nuyens decide to start a band with singer Willem Bieler. The line-up was completed by bass player Peter Vink and drummer Jay Baar. The band was inspired by rhythm and blues traditionals and the songs of Robert Johnson and Willie Dixon as well as The Kinks, The Animals and The Rolling Stones. Q65 started their performances in the Spring of 1965. 

Fresh Air - UK Single 1969
During a concert at skating ring De Eenhoorn, they met producer Peter Koelewijn. Very impressed by their show, he invited them to an audition at the Phonogram studio, where they recorded two of their own songs; "And Your Kind" and "You're The Victor". Koelewijn decided to release them on vinyl.

In January 1966, their debut single "You're The Victor" was released and later peaked at #11 on the Dutch Top 40. Then Hans van Hemert replaced Koelewijn. Two other singles reached the Dutch charts the same year; "The Life I Live" (#5) and "I Despise You" (#19). Under Van Hemert's guidance their first album entitled Revolution was recorded and released by Decca Records. In 1967, they hit the charts again with the singles "From Above" (#13) and "World of birds" (#8). Due to drug problems and military service duties of singer Wim Bieler, Q65 disbanded in 1968.

Writing on the Wall:
Writing on the Wall were a Scottish rock band of the late 1960s and early 1970s who became a popular live act in the United Kingdom.

Writing On The Wall - UK Promo Single 1973
The group originally formed as the Jury, changing their name to Writing on the Wall in early 1968. The band's manager, Brian Waldman, moved the group to London and let the band perform at his club, the Middle Earth. That same year the band recorded a BBC radio session for disc jockey John Peel and made a live demo album as well.

They eventually recorded their lone album, The Power of the Picts, for Waldman's Middle Earth label. In 1971 the band did another session for John Peel and made an LP in Scotland that was never released in 1972, then went though several lineup changes. The group tried to record another album in Wales near the end of 1973, but gave up when their equipment was stolen in December of that year.

Velvett Fogg:
Velvett Fogg are a cult British psychedelic rock band. Tony Iommi was a member in mid-1968, but soon left to form Black Sabbath. Their lone eponymous album was released in January 1969.

Velvett Fogg were one of many new bands within the underground scene, that were formed at the end of 1960s that would attempt to take pop music to a higher level of creativity. Birmingham also had its own flourishing underground music scene during that time with a variety of innovative groups emerging. The line up of Velvett Fogg all came from within this alternative music scene in the city.

The Motions - Netherlands Single 1969
Velvett Fogg were formed in 1968 from members of a Birmingham band Gravy Train. Up front was soul singer Ernie Handy, Bob Hewitt was lead guitarist, with Graham Mullett on drums, and Mick Pollard on bass guitar. Londoner Frank Wilson who played Hammond organ, was also on vocals, eventually becoming band leader and lead vocalist. The newly formed band spent most of the year touring Germany playing at army bases and clubs. Their stage act included a light show and a go-go dancer.

On their return to Birmingham, the band, now managed by an agency called Inter City Artists, were given a record deal by Jack Dorsey of Pye Records. It was also a time when it seemed that the more unusual or controversial a band was, then the greater chance there would be for success in the record business. The record label was looking to sign unusual underground music acts and Velvett Fogg were told to, in Jack Dorsey's words, "develop an image that would make people think you would piss on the pope!" (Keith Law).

The initial line-up of Velvett Fogg featured guitarist Tony Iommi (later to make the big time with Black Sabbath). Iommi was in the line-up for only one gig before he left to be replaced temporarily by Ian Leighton. Leighton was "a great blues guitarist", said his friend Frank Wilson.[citation needed] It was during this time that Pye Records arranged a photo-shoot of the band for the cover of their proposed first album.

Before recording could begin in late 1968, Ian Leighton left the band and was replaced by guitarist/vocalist Paul Eastment (a cousin of Iommi). Paul Eastment contributed original compositions for the album, as did Frank Wilson, Graham Mullet and Mick Pollard.

Velvett Fogg recorded the tracks for their debut album on Pye Records under the direction of Jack Dorsey. Apparently, Dorsey aimed to get the band onto the then-popular progressive band wagon. "I was a classically trained pianist but we all had to play way below our capabilities" says Frank Wilson.[citation needed] The band were also allowed to record covers of a few songs they liked and these included psychedelic-sounding versions of New York Mining Disaster 1941 by The Bee Gees and Tim Rose's Come Away Melinda.

The Clique:
The Clique was a band of musicians formed in England.

It was formed in 1963 by John Rowe (lead guitar), Peter Westgarth (vocals), Trevor Roberts (drums) and Adrian Stambach (bass). Joined shortly after by John Kitchin (rhythm guitar). They made two records for the UK Pye label in 1965: "She Ain't No Good" / "Time, Time Time" and "We Didn't Kiss, Didn't Love, But Now We Do Do" / You've Been Unfair". The first disc, which was also issued in the USA on ABC Paramount, was covered by The Knack at that time. Both discs have become collectors' items and the originals fetch a high price. The group disbanded towards the end of 1965.

In 1964 Trevor Roberts left the Clique and was replaced by drummer Brian Morris who was formerly with the Harlesden nw10 based band The Daytones.

The Montanas:
The Montanas were a 1960s and 1970s rock and roll band, from Wolverhampton, England. Though they never found significant success in their home country, they had one minor hit in the United States.

Les Baroques - Netherlands Single 1965
The group formed in 1964 and became known for their live shows. Their manager, Roger Allen, got them signed to Pye Records, and some of their early releases for Pye were written by Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent. In 1966 Terry Rowley joined the group on keyboards, and also worked with the group on composition and arranging.

Their several radio hits in England made little impact on the charts, but "You've Got to Be Loved" reached #58 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1968, followed by "Run to Me" making it to #121 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles charts. Their lineup changed considerably in 1967 and again in 1968, and they continued releasing singles, often written by outside writers, that were more radio-friendly than their live sound. 

In 1969, the group left the Pye label, and Rowley and vocalist John Jones quit, wanting to perform more original material. The group continued to perform throughout most of the 1970s, though mixing comedy with the music in their performances, and finally broke up in 1978. Bassist Ian Lees later found success as a comedian, and Jake Elcock pursued a career in A&R.
