Kicks And Chicks: Ever Stoned = Digipack = (CD)
From the remains of The Moving Strings and The Beat-Town Skifflers Philip Elzerman, Peter Nuyten, John Noce Santoro and Theo Verschoor formed The Zipps in the autumn of 1965. The band got national attention almost immediately because of their remarkable blend of folk rock with beat influences. But The Zipps impressed even more when their music evolved to psychedelic, including a colorful, bubbling and mind-expanding light show. It was a true spectacle for mind and body! The fans put stickers all over the Netherlands, with slogans like: 'Be Stoned, dig The Zipps psychedelic sound.' On the opening evening of Paradiso and Fantasio Amsterdam, The Zipps were top of the bill, and the band also played at major festivals such as both Flights To Lowlands Paradise and the First Holy Kitsch Garden Festival. After the band broke up in 1971, their records became collectors items. At the end of the 70's, the first bootlegs with Zipps singles appeared, and in the 80 years many 'garage bands' played cover versions of Zipps songs. In 2000, almost all former band members got together again and since then they perform regularly, even in Italy! In 2011 The Zipps celebrate their 45th anniversary. The kickoff is with this beautiful vinyl album Kicks & Chicks: Ever Stoned, with much unreleased material. Such as the original versions of Marie Juana (Give Me Your Smell) and Benzedrine Bass Player (Hurry I Need Benzedrine), the never-released single The Singer Was Stoned / Lotus Love, instrumental versions, extended versions of Kicks and Chicks and When You Tell It, Tell It Well ..!, a live version of Roll The Cotton Down in 1965 by The Beat-Town Skifflers and the previously unreleased Watch What Happens! from 1971. All these wonderful sounds are packed into a stunning psychedelic sleeve ... KICKS AND CHICKS: EVER STONED is a great monument to The Zipps and their legendary music ... Be Stoned! Dig the Zipps!
