Brainbox - To You (1972 Netherlands Hard Prog Psych)


BRAINBOX ERA CONSIDERADO UM SUPERGRUPO HOLANDES QUE FAZIA UM ROCK PROGRESSIVO RECHEADO DE PSICODELISMO E HARD ROCK!! A CITAÇÃO DE SUPERGRUPO SE JUSTIFICA PELO TIME QUE COMPÕE A BANDA!! 

O GRANDE NOME ERA "JAN AKKERMNAN" DA FAMOSA BANDA FOCUS, QUE JUNTAMENTE COM OUTROS ASTROS DO ROCK HOLANDÊS, FORMARAM ESTE EXCELENTE GRUPO CHAMADO BRAINBOX!! OS OUTROS CARAS DA BANDA NÃO ERAM MUITO CONHECIDOS, MAS PRA QUEM ENTENDE UM POUCO DE ROCK DA ÉPOCA EU CITO "PIERRE VAN DER LINDEN" QUE TAMBÉM FORMOU DEPOIS A BANDA FOCUS E JÁ HAVIA PARTICIPADO DA BANDA "AFTER TEA"!! CITARIA TAMBÉM OUTRO COMPONENTE CHAMADO "TONY DE QUELJOE" QUE ANTES DA BRAINBOX FAZIA PARTE DO EXCELENTE GRUPO "DRAGONFLY"!! 

OU SEJA, OS COMPONENTES TINHAM ESTRADA NO ROCK E ERAM MUITO BONS!! EXCELENTE BANDA E UM SOM MUITO LEGAL!! ALTAMENTE RECOMENDADO PRA QUEM AINDA NÃO CONHECE OS CARAS!!! PRESTEM ATENÇÃO NO COVER QUE FIZERAM PARA A MÚSICA DE SIMON & GARFUNKEL "SCARBOROUGH FAIR" ONDE ELES METERAM UMA FLAUTA MUITO VIAJANTE NO MEIO DO SOM!! OBRA!!!

Amsterdam supergroup, founded in 1968. First line-up: Kaz Lux, (v, ex-Screamers, Rhythm Brothers, Sheridans, Impulse, Bibs, Truth) Jan Akkerman (g,o, ex-Hunters, to Focus) Andre Reynen (b, to Minisink Townhouse and Twelve O'Clock) Pierre van der Linden (dr, ex-After Tea, to Focus).

Cast 1970: Kaz, John Schuursma (g, ex-Rob Hoeke) Rudy de Queljoe (g, ex-Dragonfly, (with John) replacing Akkerman, after Herman Meyer did also try that for a short time in 1969, ex-Full House) Frans Smit (dr, replaced stand-in Shel Schellekens, ex-Big Wheel, he himself came from September) and Andre. In 1971 Michel van Dijk (ex-Amsterdam) replaced Kaz and two new guitarists appeared: Tony de Queljoe (ex-Dragonfly) and Ron Meyes (ex-Temple). Bassist became Robert Verwey (ex-Amsterdam, to Long Tall Ernie) and Frans stayed on drums. In 1972 the group fell apart due to waning success.

"Brainbox is a Dutch rock group from the late early 1970s. It was founded in Amsterdam by guitarist Jan Akkerman, drummer Pierre van der Linden, and singer Kazamir (Kaz) Lux. Their debut single was "Down Man", which established their progressive blues sound. They had several hit singles in the Netherlands, including "Between Alpha and Omega", "Doomsday Train", and "Smile". Soon after they released their first album, Akkerman and van der Linden left the group to join Focus. They were replaced by guitarists Herman Meyer and Rudie de Quelijoe and drummer Frans Smit. Meyer was later replaced by John Schuursma. After Kaz Lux left the group in 1971, their popularity waned and they split up in 1972. In 2004 Kaz Lux reassembled the band (though without Jan Akkerman) and they performed in the Netherlands." (via Wikipedia)
