66,3 sec. - 130 Kb.
song: William Souffreau
Year : 1971
Record co. : Triangle
Originated from another band called "The Voodoos". This heavy band
made the region of Aalst unsafe in the early sixties with American rock'n'roll.
They also played covers of Cliff Richard and the Shadows, later on also covers
of the Beatles and the Stones." Member Dirk Dierickx recalls "the foreign
offering were so good at that time we hardly ever thought of writing our own stuff".
After "The Voodoos", the largest part of the band goes to play in
"Brussel", the backing band for Wim Decraene.
Only to form "Irish Coffee" in 1970 with composer William Souffreau.
As "Wit-Lof from Belgium" acknowledges "one of the best hard-rock
groups Belgium had and has had ever since".
A "masterpiece", a few singles and an album later, the group disbanded
after the death of keyboards-player Paul Lambert.
They briefly reformed some time later under the name "Joystick".
