The Day After The Sabbath 35: Windmolen Van Doom [Netherlands pt.1] by Rich Aftersabbath on Mixcloud
Happy new year to you all! Volume 35 features artists of Dutch heritage. Karel Appel supplies us with a spooky intro, he was a Dutch abstract-expressionist painter who used a battery of percussion instruments, piano and electric organ for a soundtrack to a 1963 documentary about himself, by cinematographer Jan Vrijman. De Maskers are up next, they released a few albums and singles in the late '60s, guitarist/vocalist Jan de Hont was in Cargo, also appearing here. They play a brilliant slice of ominous psych. The Bag track is the A/B sides of a single from 1971, two pieces of awesome doomy psych that makes me wish I could hear more but they were alas album-less.

Blue Planet offer up a driving and melodic track that has some catchy song writing, leading me to think they could have been quite a hit. Cargo are up next as one of the heavier entries here and Shocking Blue are one of the few bands with a female vocalist to appear in my comps, they offer some tight hard-edged pop-psych with strong vox from Mariska Veres (R.I.P.).  Group 1850 started life in 1964 as the amusingly-monikered "Klits" and have an anti-war protest song, named in reaction to The Beatles' 'Let It Be'. Focus are one of the more well-known I have used so far. A re-release of "Hocus Pocus", due to a Nike 2010 world-cup commercial, led to the song entering the British Charts at #57. Cosmic Dealer appears next and there is an interview with Adrian Vos, Angelo Santoro, and Jan Reynders from the band here at Psychedelic Baby webzine. We end up with Pugh's Place and the second reference to The Beatles, namely their excellent heavy '71 cover of "Drive My Car".

Volume 20 begins with Granmax's driving tenacity and goes on to the masterfully wah'd up heavy blues of track 2. Blossom Toes have a stand out track here, don't let their name fool you, this is a seriously heavy psych trip with some unbelievably aggressive vocals. There is an interview with Blossom Toes guitarist Brian Godding here at Psychedelic Baby webzine. Brain Police come back with some more gloriously heavy psych and track 9 jazz's up the procedings before Dirk Steffens (Ex of Birth Control) supplies some razor sharp hard rock riffing. Some more 60s groove comes our way courtesy of Brainbox before this installment ends with another cover, the bands involved needing no further introduction here...

01. Granmax - Glitter Boots Boogie - 1976
02. Chicken Shack - Poor Boy - 1972
