The Zipps-Be Stoned:Dig The Zipps[Dutch Psychedelic Beat]

Excelent dutch psych beat from my my country
to bad they didnt include the uncensored version of Marie Juana,wich seems to be availible on some rare repress of a single

Finally, after years of waiting, one of the most important Dutch '60s psych bands get all of their singles compiled onto one disc! The Zipps made some incredible 7" records and they are all here including, "Marie Juana" (the best dope song ever written), "Lotus Love", "Kicks and Chicks" and the bizarre "The Struggle For Ice-Cold Milk Of Benzi The Bassplayer Or How To Promote Original Dutch Milk". A unique style that mixed beat with all the bands own unique take on psychedelia. CD has extra tracks![]

In the autumn of 1965, the Zipps were formed in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. Peter Nuyten (guitar) and John Noce Santoro (drums) came from the guitar group, The Moving Strings.
Philip Elzerman (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and Jan Bek (vocals) came from the skiffle group Beat Town Skifflers, while Theo Verschoor (bass) came from The Twilights.
Singer Jan Bek quit before the first single ("Roll The Cotton Down" / "Highway Gambler") was released on the Op-Art label in February 1966.
Because of their psychedelic sound and Zeta-light-show, The Zipps became known as the 'Dutch Pink Floyd'.
In interviews, Philip Elzerman openly advocated the use of illicit drugs, particularly marijuana and LSD-25. One of their most popular live numbers, in fact, was titled "LSD-25", though, unfortunately, it was never released as a single. During concerts, purple stickers with the phrase "Be Stoned! Dig: Zipps Psychedelic Sound" were handed out to fans.

The Zipps, great band, great album. Thanks for sharing it here.
Beat & Poetry is hilarious, although I think our non-Dutch friends will disagree. But they can't appreciate absurdistic Dutch sixties poetry brought with a Dordts accent. They don't know what they miss...
